There are microbes out there that eat this debris and they are totally natural . Nature is amazing .
Otterhound, I'm thinking you may not get the level of support you're hoping for on this one.
Yeah, we live in the country and have some young neighbors that think it's their right to deposit their trash (beer cans, soda pop cans, fast food sacks filled with leftovers, cigarette butts, grocery sacks, etc.) in our yard. I can't wait to catch them in the act, collect a bunch of their trash in a trash bag and deposit it in their yard over night. There are about 25 houses grouped together so they won't be able to tell for sure which house the trash is from. Maybe they'll get the hint. Probably not.
In the land of the free it's all about me; me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, .............
It's never about US .......
I think littering and a ton of other little "crimes against humanity" are a huge result of the "if you punch me, you'll lose everything" laws.
we need to legalize the "good ol punch in the mouth" again.
I don't need support . No one else was there or endured this . This is my experience , not yours . The bottom line is that this guy should have simply written the ticket when I agreed to it . Everything else is ego , not law . He simply wasn't prepared for my answer to his ultimatum . I was supposed to simply bend to his will and he didn't know how to process anything else . Let me tell you about the time I was charged with hitchhiking after my car let me sit in 10" of snow or the time a local was dispatched to my home to enforce an ordinance that did not exist . How about the time I was sued by the Borough for not getting a building permit for work that did not require a permit ? I did the crime and was willing to pay the price concerning the littering thing . The end .
It's called simple a--holism. It seems to be endemic to the human race – and very common in North America, particularly. It also largely seems to correlate with simple stupidity, though one trait is by no means a requirement for the other.
Littering is such a disappointment.
I live on a corner lot; it's not big, just a little over an acre.
I have around 650 feet of frontage on the two streets.
Every time I mow the lawn, I have to first pickup the junk that pigs have have tossed out of their vehicle windows.
I suppose I could just leave it laying there and then shred it up with the mower and blow it all over the neighborhood, but "something" stops me from doing that.
What is that "something"?
I'm not a neat freak, and I'm not some old curmudgeon, and I'm no-one special, but I do have a little bit of pride of ownership (I worked very hard to achieve my little piece of the so-called "American Dream", including the 650 feet that pigs throw their crap on), and I generally also have respect for other people that can only be violated by their own words or actions. I also have a sense of responsibility to do my part in the upkeep of my part of the world.
But I can't muster any respect for the self-centered pigs who make a regular practice of throwing their crap out of their windows.
The littering pigs are a real disappointment. No excuses.
Don't get me started. I HATE litter. Drive along any major UK road these days and the verges will be covered in the stuff, 90% of which will be fast food packaging and empty drinks containers, casually chucked out from cars, vans and lorries.
What I hate about it is not just the sight, which sickens me, but the things it represents. Empty and pointless consumption for the sake of it, excessive packaging, lack of personal responsibility and total lack of respect for the environment.
You don't see national litter campaigns anymore.
I rememeber the Indian actor on a commercial crying when he saw kids throw out their garbage in the river.
You know, the more I reflect on this phenomenon, the more I have to agree with you @uriah1. Or, at least it’s one of the bigger pieces to the puzzle.
If one was raised seeing their parents chuck stuff out the window, then he/she grows up thinking it’s acceptable behavior.
I used to think that teenagers and young adults were the culprits, but one day I was sitting in my car waiting for an appointment to show. A woman in her 40’s (soccer mom type) drove by and threw her plastic iced tea bottle right in front of me.
When I was a kid in the '60s, my family took several driving vacations across the country. I have enduring memories of the highways completely lined with trash. Parks had one garbage can, and it was always overflowing, if not turned inside out by raccoons and other vermin. Then Johnson's Beautify America campaign hit, and slowly, slowly, people became aware THEY were the problem and things turned around.
They seem to be turning around again, in the wrong direction.
Do we have a song here?
It's just selfishness/being inconsiderate.
That's where most all our problems come from
You forgot greed.
no, i didn't, see my original post
That was a very long wall of entitlement. Thanks?
Yes , we all are entitled to a certain degree of courtesy .
Anal Expulsives, in Freudian terms. Unfortunately, the rest of us have to share the planet with them.
