I agree with @6 and @30. There are two paths to power: money, and numbers. If you don't have the former, the best use of your time is organizing people to vote as a bloc, unionize and act as a cohesive group. Shouting loudly, especially into the void of the internet, will get you nowhere except to alienate your allies.

Returning to the 55mph speed limit (and lowering limits in general) would save lives and fuel.

The white substance in your Bialetti was probably aluminum oxide, which is harmless. The "link" between Alzheimer's and aluminum is correlative, at best.

#1 is correct - a high enough tax would work. Gas really should be $10 a gallon or more to accurately reflect its external cost. Problem is such a tax will never be implemented by a government elected by its citizens.

I bookmarked this article to re-visit any time I make the mistake of thinking there is something redeeming about our species.

Max, the Navajo have a long tradition of weaving very fine blankets and some of the best examples are in museums. I have seen some for sale for tens of thousands of dollars. Antiques Road Show featured one worth several hundred thousand.
