I wrote a post about recycling the other day and some of the responses I've received have been interesting as well as informative. I came across an article today that may call your love for Mother Earth into question. According to a recent Times report two Google searches can emit as much carbon dioxide as boiling a kettle of tea. It goes on to say that having an avatar in Second Life can use as much electricity per year as the average Brazilian consumes.
The article doesn't go into watching videos of half naked Asian girls slapping each other so it does WIGSF and Big Ben no good, but I'm curious how much my blogging habit has done to harm precious resources. I mean does writing about my obsession with all things boobie related emit enough greenhouse gasses that it kills a starving orphan? Curious....
When you're at work do you ever feel like busting into some random person's office and point and say in a low creepy voice 'yooooooouuuuuu' then suddenly bolt? No?
I guess that wouldn't be good for my career. Still I like to make everyone's day a little more surreal.
