Why the Human Race Sucks, Vol. 1
Follow this link to discover something called the Great Toxic Garbage Island.
In the ocean are vortexes of currents that create in essence the biggest eddies in the world. Here, all our dumped garbage gets broken down and floats, plastic, tires, buoys, every kind of trash. The worst part about this is, the plastic does break down into small bite-size nibs that the leetle fish eat. The little fish eat them, and on the story goes until we are ingesting our own garbage. It makes me think of Fight Club: "Selling rich women their own fat asses back to them."
We sow toxins, we reap toxins. In between California and Hawai'i is a massive area of toxic stuff, some say the size of Texas, others say twice that. I imagined actual mounds of trash, which there is sometimes, but nothing like the bergs of gunk I had in my head. Really, there's miniscule bits that create a film of plastic. You really want to get depressed, watch the film on the link. The main guy curses up a storm, I mean really. There are certain words that just don't need the F-bomb, but this guy spreads it around anyway. Other than that, you GOTTA see this. You really wanna get depressed....
It makes the phrase "out of sight, out of mind" kind of funny....because we're ingesting our own toxic waste, which I don't doubt does something to our brains....oh Dear Jesus come soon.
We're such asses.
