4.9. It appears I may have overstayed my welcome.

If I can make a few million and spend it all on environmentally friendly causes, it appears I'll be able to live forever. I'll get right on that.

You don't even need to make a few million. Just eat organic food for a year and give all of your savings to Reverand Gore and you can live for a few hundred years.

With the statistics on getting hit by a bus, lightning strikes, and other improbable means of death, a few hundred years is functionally immortal.

I should have died at 29.5 years old.

Of course, people have been saying that about me for years. :D

8. I guess I'm living on borrowed time.

Did I miss a memo? Eating meat is now considered an act of planetery destruction?

Meat is more than 10 times more energy intensive to produce than non-meat food, apparantly.

"Meat is a gross waste of our natural resources, a major source of pollution, and the main cause of the destruction of the earth's rainforests. Only a vegetarian diet is consistent with a sincere concern for the environment. If you care about the world we live in, recycling aluminum cans is not enough. A vegetarian diet is not only good for your health, it is good for the planet."

So said Noam Mohr of PETA but I say a good thick steak beats the crap out of soyberger any day of the week !!

Kosher slaughterhouse horrors at Iowa plant highlight cruelty of modern factory farming...By NOAM MOHR.

PETA’s provocations have given them a bad reputation among Jews ... Noam Mohr is Coordinator of the Jewish Vegetarians of North America (JVNA) ...

I'm not entirely sure how the calculation is made. At a guess, I probably got Gaia Love Points for recycling/composting, having an energy-efficient house, and buying "green" or used stuff.

So, like you I'm at 29.5 and holding. :p

I'll have the steak and then buy an SUV and drive it cross country for no reason while throwing recyclable bottles along the highway.
