Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Upsides and downsides.

Normally I don't post things that might be regarded as particularly favorable towards half-assed technophobic environmentalism. This is because, while I am something of an environmentalist, I belong to the "better living through technology" branch of the movement. However, in this one case, I'll make an exception for this charming little movie: Grocery Store Wars. It finally answers the question: can a cucumber act more skillfully than Mark Hamill?

While watching, however, please keep a few things in mind: irradiated food is quite safe, there's no reason whatsoever to assume that organic farming is, indeed, more sustainable than mechanized agriculture, and that advances in farming technology are all that have allowed us to develop our civilization to the extent that we have people with sufficient leisure time to bitch about mechanized farming.

Have a nice day.
