Humor is a great thing. It is often done through stereotyping people. I can laugh at that.
But that does not change the fact that THE THING event will leave a huge carbon footprint. Unfortunately, your generation, and your children's generation will be facing insurmountable environmental challenges. Why? Because we (you) continue to do business as usual when it comes to transportation, tourism and reliance on cars. So, laugh while you can, by making fun of those of us who recognize the folly of "business as usual." You may not be laughing in 30 years.
Yesterday was my biggest shoplifting day in three years. I'm debating opening today. I'm not a fan of the "thing"
Dawn you had me there, I thought you were confessing to shoplifting. Just wait, I hear the "Thing" will grow on you!
Lol Marge...nope I didn't take a thing....I lost over five hundred dollars in product. The "thing" stinks. I will close before I endure a weekend of freaks and shoplifters ever again. They came in in large groups but had their tags on so I knew who they were. At some point this town needs to understand this isn't a good focus for the future. Or let's just give up and be burning man...and have everyone who actually contributes to society leave
Sorry for your loss, I was trying to be funny which I obviously am not very good at. Good to hear the "other side" of the story.
David, the "Thing" event probably created less of a carbon "footprint" than the carbon "footprint" created by Jay Inslee's ego run for the presidency and instead of costing the taxpayers the "Thing" event created revenue and was certainly more entertaining.
Justin...massive shoplifting is not "revenue" Many merchants in town experienced that "thing"
