    Call me crazy, but I am really starting to sense a meme here. And, I know it’s not cars …..

    Aaaah, girl next door Kathleen Duplessis polishing the bumper bullets of a ’59 Impala. I wonder what the back end of that chassis looks like. That 348 motor has got to be god-awful on the greenhouse gasses. Better to keep it in the garage and hire a girl in a pink bikini to polish it.

    Hey this gives me an idea for a new business. Pink Bikini Waxers, LLC.

    I built that.

    Wait.. are we talking about cars again? Quit confusing me.

    Pink Bikini Waxers, LLC. I built that.

    We were told that you didn’t. You had help. You stood on the shoulders of plastic surgeons, Taiwanese bikini maker slave labor, ….

    Teach, come on man! I know there is something you are trying to tell us. Just come out with it already.

    (I hate being in the dark. Too many puzzles in life as it is, now I have to have one on a carbon-sucking blog? Sigh. Wishing now my mother had raised a son who survived being dropped from the crib.)

    That’s a mighty nice…bumper!

  7. Carbon sucking? Hey, come on now, my server is actually “green” certified, per Dreamhost!

    my server is actually “green” certified, per Dreamhost!


    And WHY is DreamHost green?

    Because we’re carbon neutral! That means we purchase renewable energy certificates that offset the carbon emissions generated by all of our business activities.

    Ummmm…. tell that to the poor working minorities who have to live downstream of your carbon-smog air-polluting servers. They’ll be happy to know that “credit” was bought under some shady pyramid money scheme that makes Enron look like a friendly poker game using bottle caps as chips.

    I know, I for one am happy that somewhere, someone may have planted a tree that might have lived past its first 6 months.

    But hey, I kid. They are really really serious about this. And, I know Teach is too. Let’s see how far they are willing to go to minimize their “carbon” footprint.

    When we learned that running DreamHost generated as much carbon dioxide as 545 average-size homes we realized we had to do something to neutralize our emissions.

    With a bit of research we found the most effective approach begins with resource conservation: turning off the lights,

    ummmmmmm…. ok?

    The next step is to use clean, renewable energy. Without the option to put up solar panels or connect with a green power utility for us this means purchasing Renewable Energy Credits.

    Ummm.. say that again? You wanted to use “renewable” energy, so instead of buying solar panels, you bought someone else’s “you may pass go” credits.

    How convenient. For the seller that is.

    Ok, what about real cleaning? What about really taking a stand to clean the environment???

    Finally, to neutralize those unavoidable emissions we’ve invested in Emission Reduction Credits


    Does no one see this is a huge ponzi scheme? That there is no way to PROVE that emissions were reduced or countered? Who judges and dictates who can emit what amount? Why is it right for one company to be SAID to be under some set carbon limit, while another company is over some set limit?

    BTW, “renewable” energy production is not all that “green”. It is sometimes worse in the long run.

    Anyway, sorry, I stole the topic and i started off to make a highly sarcastic joke and ended up ranting.
