tired of seeing polystyrene litter on your runs? (Read 259 times)

    Lotsa liberal whining in this thread.

     

    -1 to that generalizing comment.    A person who does not like trash is automatically a 'whining liberal'?

     

    I probably shouldn't respond anyway, but I am just wondering where you are looking to see the "conservative or liberal" indicator of folks here in the profiles.  I don't see that block...

      I'm pretty sure he was just kidding.

      Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive.

        Anyone remember the McD.L.T? Such a good use of polystyrene.

         

         

        Inside the container?

        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

           I'm pretty sure he was just kidding.

           

          I'm pretty sure I was kidding too.   - Or I may have missed the poke and bit on it just a little.  :-)

           

          ---To Led, on those MDLT's, you are right.  Really didn't have much flavor in them, did they?  And just for information for a fellow like me who worked at McDonalds for a bit when in High School:   The grills cook the patty from both sides, top and bottom.  The 1/4 pound patty goes from frozen solid to fully cooked in 103 seconds.    The smaller patty for a happy meal hamburger?  From frozen solid to fully cooked in a mere 39 seconds.   --- And there you have some useless info on how long it takes to 'prepare'  those hockey-puck meat patties served at McDonalds. :-)

            A college friend of mine was sucked away from his music degree program by McDonalds.  He went to Hamburger U. and became a big mucky-muck in the corporation.  He always talked so proudly of the quality of their products, as well as the vast quantities.  "We sell more meat, more bread, more ketchup; in fact, more of everything we sell than anyone else in the world."

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                I bought my nephew an elephant for his room. He said, "Thanks". I said, "Don't mention it".

                  Styrofoam can be replaced by mushrooms.

                   

                  Hell, the politicians in Washington DC can be replaced by mushrooms for that matter......

                  Wot? Run? I thought they said Rum!

                    I think 8 Mile Island had something to do with pollution caused by Eminem fans.  Or Eminem.

                     

                    All litter and accidentally-released radiation is bad.  Agreed.

                      Mylar balloons.

                      They ride on the air filling fast

                      with carbon dioxide

                      warming the hearts of children 

                      then sticking in trees

                      where they glare

                      and ruin the view.

                      There must be fewer

                      mylar balloons.

                      For the children.

                        Some of those other packaging materials biodegrade fairly rapidly.  The styrofoam may last centuries.

                         

                        As do many running shoes!   Wink

                         

                        (Well, maybe not centuries, but many experts believe traditional midsoles/soles to take over 1,000 years to fully degrade)

                          Phil Knight takes my worn out midsoles back to the moon, where he found them. Well, he probably has a small Vietnamese child do it for him, but I still appreciate the gesture.

                            I don't discriminate when it comes to litter, I hate all of it.

                             

                            When I see someone flick a cigarette butt out of their car window, I want nothing more than to pick it up and flick it right in their face.

                             

                             

                            Whenever I see this behavior and I'm in my car, I honk at the perpetrator. My wife doesn't like it, but at least I'm not the one littering.
