    Happy Earth Day.

    "We all have a stake--equally. Because if we do not save the environment and save the Earth, then whatever we do in civil rights or in a war against poverty will be of no meaning, because then we will have the equality of extinction and the brotherhood of the grave."

    I went to the first Earth Day 1970 at Miami University. NRBQ played. I smoked pot. Along with eleventy-bazillion other people there. It was like Woodstock.

    Trivia question: what does the abbreviation NRBQ stand for?

    I know WOY knows this but it stands for New Orleans Rhythm and Blues Quartet.

    Here's a humbling excercise:

    Footprint Calculator

    I thought I'd do well. I don't have a car, live in apartment, etc.. But it would still take 3.4 worlds to sustain a population of me's.

    6.7 to sustain me. I can believe that. I like to live the high life.

    2.6 for me.

    I expected higher, frankly.

    Re: Happy Earth Day.

    2.9 planets when I'm at school.

    5.9 planets when I'm not at school.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    I am disappointed. I feel so tree-huggish. To make myself feel better... I will take a 1/2 day of vacation and drive a few hundred miles in my car.

    Re: Happy Earth Day.

    Just for giggles, I tried to max out the number of planets someone could use:

    I got 19.9 planets.

    Can anybody beat that?
