Floating rubbish dump 'bigger than U.S.'
Here is an article about the giant plastic soup polluting the Pacific Ocean.
The plastic has broken up into tiny pieces the float just under the water's surface. Because the plastic is mostly translucent and in small pieces it can't be photographed from satellites. It can be seen from the bow of boats and anyone who drags the waters with get a net full o plastic. Yummy!
Animals eat it get sick and die, or we catch the fish and the pollutants end up on our plate. Delicious!
Did I mention this was discovered in 1997 and is still in existence...?

So I decided to go vegetarian again. I was a vegetarian for 3-4 years but stopped about 3 years ago. Well, I'm back and ready for meatless action. I decided to try some of the meat substitutes they have a Market Basket and they've got some pretty good stuff. I'm gonna take pictures and give recipes/brands for my favourite meals. I'm not going vegan but I'm trying to cut back on my dairy intake. I loves me some tofu!
Veggie Beef Kabob
Veggie Beef Skewers by "Its All Good" Food
Chopped Collard greens (cooked with garlic)
Non-fat yogurt (or soy yogurt)
Bag of frozen mixed berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries)
Orange and/or apple juice
Blend and drink!
Veggie Chicken and Pasta
Veggie Chicken from "Its All Good" foods
Whole Wheat Pasta
Leftover Collard greens or spinach
Pasta Sauce (Francesco Ranaldi brand doesn't use high fructose corn syrup so I recommend them)
Top with Veggie Grated Cheese from Galaxy foods
Chocolate Soy Milk from Sunrich
Navel Orange for a snack later
There are many good ideas and info on being veggie at Peta.org

Flat Tire Question....:
Okay, so I have a question for you all. This question has plagued me for years.
In horror or action movies people always get flat tires. When the bad guy/monster is chasing them, they notice their tire/s are flat and seek an alternative means of escape; usually by way of those things called feet. What I don't understand is why they don't just ride on the rims. I mean, in real life you don't wanna do that 'cause you'll fuck up your car. But if it were me, if I was being chased by, say, an axe-wielding maniac, I'd just risk screwing up my axle/rims if I could get away. Even if it didn't get me too far, it seems like a car would get me further than my feet. So, people, tell me, why don't people just ride on the rims when they're about to die?
