I litter and i’m proud

with 16 comments

If every major city has cleaners and these cleaners ensure waste is collected and the environment is kept clean…If every employed cleaner is able to support themselves and their families…then why oh why is it wrong to litter?

  1. Oh my God – you just stuck that one up to piss me off didnt you!!! First of all, surely you dont agree with ANY littering – you dont think its OK for people to chuck chewing gum (that costs millions every year to clear up), condoms (just plain nasty!) or dirty needles?
    Isnt it quite simpy more aesthetically pleasing not to have shit all over our town?
    Also, if you suggest its OK to litter, the problem will get out of control (broken windows theory).
    There will always be need for streetcleaners, although if there wasnt it would be great! Sorry, street cleaners but if you go the way of the British cottenfarmers and miners…so be it!!

  2. The logic of doing more of something that is inevitable (and not inherently good), also extends to prostitution, drugs trade, and war. They all add economic benefits and jobs, all exist no matter how much you try to rid yourself of them, but aren’t exactly to be encouraged. Having said that, just having street cleaners is a great luxury I’m glad we afford in this city.

  3. To justify your littering because it is keeps people in employment and therefore has an economic benefit is unviable. Littering is immoral.The amount of disgusting filth that pollutes our water and our environment because people think it’s okay to chuck what they want, whereever they want , is inexcusable. Its anti social. The question is why do people feel the need to litter. There are dustbins in every home in the country. There are dustbins in all public places – so its not as though you cant find a good place for your rubbish. The problem seems to be that once you have eaten your apple, you dont have the patience to wait and throw it away in a suitable place, but you want to throw it away immediately. Why. Why do people not take pride in where they live or where they work. Why is there no longer a sense of civic duty or a sense of community – a community where you play a role. And dont ever justify your laziness by claiming you are keeping people in work.

  4. Surely an apple or any other biodegradable substance is not litter!! I enjoy throwing biological material out in the city or on the road, it gives the concrete a little more nature.

    Our water and environment is polluted by industry, living, and our mountains of trash, not our litter. So holding off on dumping things in dustbins is hardly a solution.

    I say human life is immoral and anti-social and everyone should only eat fruits and nuts picked up from the ground and if there aren’t enough to go around they should starve to death. Maybe we can choose who should die by a lottery? Or better yet, by who eats the least!

    This would be ideal because we could then adapt the environmental pressure away from consumption and power towards vegetarian pacifists, who would never litter.

  5. I agree that biodegradable waste is NOT litter. In fact it is a bad thing to throw such things in a bin – they SHOULD be thrown so that they can be utilised by birds/animals/insects/the earth.
    You’ve lost me when you start trying to be some ital Rastaman! Can I eat a cow that dies of natural causes? Would you?

  6. poxinfinite – what are you – some blindly religious,lonely, tree hugging, vegetarian with a hitler complex.
    I’ve met people like you before and you’re all hypocrites. i bet you have some job in the city and wear a suit to work – albeit a bad one. Only eat fruit and nuts!!! Let me tell you something. meat is good. Meat is very good. i like it when it is rare and bloody.

    And let me end by saying that vegetarians are clinically proven to have smaller brains than meat eaters – which is amply demonstarted by your pretentious high brow comments.

    Throw your thesauraus away and write with your heart.

    And another thing. Don’t throw litter away in the street, even if it is biodegradable. Other people have to use the same streets, and I dont want to trip on your litter.

    Vegetarian life immoral and inhuman!!!

  7. poxinfinate—the only fruit around here is you son.

    Are you American?

  8. The only thing meat eaters can be proud of bringing the world is foot and mouth and bird flu! Slack jawed, barbaric, penis digesting, offal eating, walking garbage disposal, rotten flesh licking carnivores.

    As has amply been proven, brain size does not equal intelligence… your meat eating guts, thighs, arteries and inflated hearts are all bigger and more dangerous, same goes for your brain. I’ll keep company with Einstein, Newton, and Da Vinci in the intellectual stakes and you have nothing to counter that with.

    I may wear crap suits, talk like a Yankee, and be contented to put meat eaters in the same slaughter houses they use so happily on other animals, but at least I can keep to my values.

    Igotlife, you should change your name to Itakelife, and if you are so desperate to eat rotten dead flesh and blood, I’ll be happy to deliver all the rotten, crusted, furry dead flesh you can ingest (and fail to digest). At least you agree it might be better not to go and kill and invoke your inhuman bloodlust just to satisfy your tongue.

    Lottery! you’d be lucky if you had won the lottery and been born in a great nation like the USA. You’re probably some toad licking, blood pudding sucking, american ass sniffing pommie wannabee.

    I propose we open a garbage pile in full english’s yard, and igotlife can go dig out the dead flesh of any creatures found there. One way to cure the litter habit.

  9. Poxinfinite: I’ve got a funny feeling you have a secret respect for Ghengis Khan. Am I right?

    “Compared to the Jurched [Chinese] soldiers, the Mongols were much healthier and stronger. The Mongols consumed a steady diet of meat, milk, yoghurt, and other dairy products, and they fought men who lived on gruel from various grains. The grain diet of the peasant warriors stunted their bones, rotted their teeth, and left them weak and prone to disease. In contrast, the poorest Mongol soldier ate mostly protein, thereby giving him strong teeth and bones.”

    Consequently the meat-eaters (Mongols) kicked the living shit out of the rice-munchers.
    Meat rules!!!!! And secretly you know it!

  10. Wow.
    Poxlife, from high brow to the gutter in one fail swoop. You certainly have a penchant for the extreme.

    First, lets talk about brain size.
    Its been proven beyond doubt that one of the key factors in allowing humans to evolve from apes to man, to make that evolutionary leap, was when we became omnivores and stopped being herbivores. The additional protein that added richness to our diet allowed our brain sizes to increase, to start using tools etc. This is a fact. So for all your preaching about meat is murder, dont ever forget that your ancestors ate meat, lots of it – and its one of the the key factors in shaping you, me and every other human being on the planet today. Brain size does matter, when it is loked at in proportion to the rst of the body. This is accepted scientific fact.

    For the record. I do not eat rotten dead flesh. I eat meat which is fresh. If i dont consume eat immediately, i will freeze it.
    Yes, i probably have got 15 pounds of undigested meat in my gut, but so what, i’m proud of that fact. Dont associate all meat with what is served up in fast food, which is what you are implying. Meat is tasty. Meat is juicy. Meat is protein. Protein means bigger brain.

    Anothetr thing. In my country, we dont say garbage, we say rubbish. Capisce!!!

  11. Full English–Whats Caprice got to do with this, I agree she’s fit but I don’t see the relevance to this argument.

    Poxinfinite– I’m guessing you caught your pox from an animal (sheep is my guess) is this why your so bitter.

  12. I had to laugh at the sheep pox factor.

    Full english, your evolutionary history is rubbish and dogs bollocks.

    There are more protein sources than simply meat, although obviously protein is important.

    The poor peasants of china on an all rice diet couldn’t match even a veggie Mongol who might have stuck to curds and milk.

    There are plenty of big ass veggie’s you wouldn’t want to mess with, not least found amongst the full followers of the Sikh faith of India.

    Basically this is a situation in which I can easily prove your theory that meat is necessary completely, utterly, and inevitably false. It’s not even worth the argument.

    I will accept that you find meat tasty, delicious, and so can’t control your tongue long enough to realise what you are eating. All meat is dead and rotting, calling it fresh is an oxymoron… with you as the moron.

    I accept it should be eaten when necessary, and Mongols probably couldn’t survive without it.

    We’re more advanced than that, and can afford to do good.

    Just as we can afford to have cleaners and sewage systems. If I litter and i’m proud is still following this thread, I suggest he or she visits ancient london, gets a bucket of shit tossed on his head, followed by a slip in some meat offal infested ditch and then revises the opinion on litter.

  13. Pox boy. Please listen carefully. poroteing is a complex molecule. It comes in various forms. Different types of proteins serve different functions. protein in fish is inherently different to protein in nuts. protein in chicken is inherently different then protein in pork. In fact, there are thousands of varying proteins and they all serve different purposes.
    The one for brains is found in meat.

  14. Listen here English.

    Care to take an IQ test with me?

    I’ve never had meat in my life.

    I think I can prove it’s not necessary for the brain.


    September 29, 2006 at 11:41 pm

  15. Pox boy

    IQ is a very antiquated measure of testing intelligence.
    Autistic people have high IQ’s.

    Judging from the previous comments you have posted, you seem like one of the original div’s!
    Jog on back your cave.
