At least we aren't fat, white, conservative, and gas guzzling fuck heads. Being a fat, conservative, white, male, must suck. Especially when black and hispanic males are so much more attractive now.
Sorry dude, but fat, white, neckbeard, gun loving, small dick, and truck driving is no longer so good on the monetary basis that women don't have another choice. Hey toss in balding and you could make Kyle your mascot, must feel good eh!
See you in 2030 when your type is done and gone. There is nothing so wrong with America as rural whites. But, us liberals, well, we enjoy fucking your daughters when they make it in life and move the big city.
This is pretty normal for people that live in a city or downtown. Your electric bill is built into your condo fee or rent a large portion of the time, ditto with heating and other things (base rent here would be about 1400 for a studio + 250 a month in fees). It's not like having a house where the heating and base electric bill can be nuts, so most people just live crap running.
How many people here actually turn off their PC? I doubt that many.
If this is the same person I am thinking about, you should check out some of his elitist video game posts about his omnipotent fighting game skills and how everyone else but the elite few are scrubs.
This hyperbole serves no purpose. You don't have to agree with conversationalists but you should at least understand why they feel the way they do. It isn't about controlling what you do or don't do, it's about preservation of our home.I lay no claims to being a greenie but I use common sense about my use of <insert favorite commodity here>. I won't be celebrating Earth Day this year. Funny how the invites were printed on trees that were cut down. ??? I'll probably be driving my HMMWV, that had it's catalytic converters removed, through a National Forest that has been closed because the local chapter of hug a tree closed all people out (even though it's a *national* forest meaning you and I own it). Then I'll plug in my car at my local hospital because they have free energy plug-ins for up to four hours (where are the free gas pumps for my other vehicle?). Then I'll plug in said car for more free power at electric company utility. Then I'll empty my home pool and refill. (tongue-in-cheek). /rant.
My waste is nothing compared to white hicks in red states that mooch off blue states, drive long distances to work, and have larger homes. When they believe in evolution and raw science, and start to conserve, they can bitch about my minor dent. Till then it's more "lol hicks in flyover country" for the real US.
Wow gotta start unplugging to save money
I read enough. Did you? This grad student arbitrarily assumed that all consoles sold were in use, that 30% of consoles were always left on and cutting this would somehow result in a 62.5% energy savings?? ...or 60%, depending on what part of the article you read. A bunch of hyperbolic assumptions by some grad student that gets picked up by the media to support the green cult.If you read the paper, and I don't expect you or many others here did, hell I didn't but I skimmed through enough of the highlights to see exactly what they did. They're basing the estimates off sales of systems, off projected hours that each system is actually in use going so far as to show that Wii users use the system much less than PS3 & Xbox users, hell they even go so far as to say how often it's used to watch movies which has a different power consumption, and yeah they do in fact state that standby power is like 1-2 watts for each system.
