Wasting water so you can waste gasoline....
...is pretty much the definition of a lawn. Both resources are finite and under pressure. Every gallon played off against the other denies something vital to people who will suffer from the lack of one or the other. These days, when I see a "well tended" patch of grass (watered daily and cut weekly) I realize that more than a piece of land is getting hosed. Someone remind me again about the virtues of a voluptuous lawn?

1. Lawns are TOTALLY artificial, useless and wasteful.
Take a walk in "nature." Go into the woods, walk through a meadow, whatever. When was the last time you saw a "lawn" in nature? Ain't no such beast. Lawns are totally man-made, and devastating to our planet.
"Devastating our planet!!!!!!" BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

How does one waste water? Has someone found out how do destroy matter and didnt tell me? If the water in my watershed goes unused, it flows down the Merrimac River into the Atlantic, then eventually turns to vapor, condenses, and falls as rain or snow. Then the process starts again. So any water that ends up on a lawn will, with absolute certainty, in time end up back in the ocean. So what the fuck are all those dickhead hippie commie sissies talking about?

Guys, Moonbats have to find something eveyday to be pissed off about, no matter how stupid it is.
Tomorrow it'll be pine scented oderizers make the albinos nervous, or there aren't enough left handed people watching the OC in their underwear, or a petition to allow chipmonks the right to drive unicycles in the Gay Pride parade.CU's Paranormal Expert.

The earth is two thirds water, the most abundant finite resource imaginable. Also the earth is basically a closed ecology so no water is ever lost (or so little that it doesn't matter). It always stays with in water cycle in one form or another and goes on to be used again and again.“Progress is Providence without God. That is, it is a theory that everything has always
perpetually gone right by accident. It is a sort of atheistic optimism, based on an
everlasting coincidence far more miraculous than a miracle.”

The DUmmies are under the impression that if 1 gallon of water isn't used in Colorado, that gallon will magically appear in the Sudan and slake the thirst of a family of 5.
This is what happens when people are scientifically illiterate.

Hearing them rant against lawns reminds me of an article I once read about the ecoterrorist group Earth First (Spit). It said that among the activities that those Earth First loons take part in is a ceremony called the 'Council of All Beings.' In this ludicrous ceremony, members take a natural object, such as a mouse or a tree or a blade of grass, meditate on it until they seem to feel they have "become" that mouse or stem of grass, then they get up on stage and tell all the other Earth First nutjobs about the horrors of mousetraps and lawnmowers and how it feels to be oppressed by those mean old humans.
