Christmas truce 1914Weekend social is for non political chat. What’s on for the weekend, gigs, film or book reviews, sports, or whatever.

No politics, no aggro, why can’t we all just get along?

    Love this song – with the discussion, at the end is worth skipping.

    Good song! is about the only thing I can say about a political song in a space where political comment isn’t allowed. For a moment there I thought it was Katy Soljak and thought, wow, she turns up in some interesting places. I think Katy is about ten years younger, though.

    Making pesto – have fabulously big basil plants from my vege garden – but I forgot to put the parmesan cheese on my shopping list – duh !

    According to
    http://www.cowspiracy.com/ — The movie.
    In 2009 a 2 man advisory team from the world bank said, commenting on Animal Agriculture
    Greenhouse gas Emissions 13% all transportation (cars, trucks trains etc) 51% Animal Agriculture including deforestation, and farts)

    Consumes 1/3 of all fresh water
    Occupies 45% of the earth land
    responsible for 91% of the Amazon rain forest destruction
    Leading cause of species extinction (Da)
    Leading cause of ocean dead zones
    and habitat destruction …..
    %
    5% US domestic water use verses 55% US Animal Agriculture.
    660 Gallons of water to make a 1/4 ponder = to 2 months worth of showers?

    Interesting discussion on slashdot – how many devices do you have with a GPS unit built in?

    http://slashdot.org/poll/2887/devices-i-have-with-a-gps-reciever-built-in

    Some of the lists are amazing. I try not to overdo tech toys, but I score a 5: smartphone, old smartphone, tablet, 2 handheld GPS for tramping.

    The march of technology.
