rain in Minneapolis in December and y'all are still out here driving cars like "My actions don't have consequences!"

honestly. I wish we'd run out of oil earlier. whoever invented fracking is such an enormous fuckup... hard to underestimate the degree of calamity they inflicted.

@t54r4n1 on the one hand, totally. But on the other hand, oil running out means we've used it all already, which means we're extra fucked.

@t54r4n1 or the tar sands scraping or the mountaintop removal or the arsenic leeching fields for recovering gold or digging fucking enormous holes for copper dust. just the most vile people imaginable, yea

@t54r4n1 I like to yell the number of cars that don't stop for me to cross Lexington as they go by. Today was: "ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX" before I stepped out.
