    As soon as these rockets starting saying I'm responsible for tulip in the 18th century I don't feel I am responsible for my actions today.

    Pass me the swan vestas, I'm lighting the burn pit.

    Aren’t you the same guy who is offended by stuff that happened at the end of the 17th century?

    It’s almost like you’re just a massive hypocrite.

      Am I?

        Look, use the search functionality FFS. Stop following me around with "did you once say"

          On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologise for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening, it’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
          I read the article but I didn't see him actually say what is the most serious. Plastic waste in the oceans?

          It's bin collection day today so I'm off to see what contribution the couple down the road are making to screwing the planet. Last Monday was a record 14 bin bags.
          Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

            I'm reading the book. I'll let you know.

            We have to pay about £2 per 35l sack (that's about your normal bin bag). Household of four adults - one bag per week. Paying directly for it to be disposed of makes you a careful recycler - and composter. (There's even communal compost heaps for those who don't have a garden).
            Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

              The fewest we've ever seen them put out is 4. Usually it's around 6. The binman probably assumes it's a huge family but there's only the two of them.

                Maybe they're serial killers...

                  Let me know what it's like. I wasn't sure if there'd be much more to it than the article.

                  I suspect paying a fixed price for "all you can muster" waste collection does drive one to be less careful as there's no penalty. However, I bet that if refuse collection was chargeable on a PAYG basis, rather than in with council tax, fly tipping would increase massively.

                  Recycling in the UK is so very hit and miss. Different councils will accept different things. I'd love to be able to compost food waste but can't because RBKC only offer food waste collection to properties that aren't blocks of flats (i.e. the majority of the borough).

                    Obviously they don't have a decent garden shredder and pigs, or a wooded hill nearby.
