  1. I am the smartest man alive. Take it and bid it.

    Seems like you've really researched this and made a huge effort into your invention. What are your next steps?
  2. When you ride alone

    Haha, there is no better way to get people to car pool than comparing them to Hitler!
  3. How do you get to where your going?

    I spent £295 on this fixie bike (only the 2010 version): http://www.sebikes.com/wordpressfiles/?p=2067 And it has paid it self back multiple times over the past couple years. It's so much fun to ride and a pleasure to travel on. In fact, I just at the chance to do a quick run on it, so when a friend asks for a favour I am more than happy to run to the shops etc. It makes me look like such a good person when I am actually getting a lot of enjoyment out of it :)
  4. Ways you conserve water

    These really are some fantastic tips. There's never been an issue with water in our area, but if ever there is, at least I'm a little bit more prepared! Thanks.
  5. 10 Completely Bizarre Eco Gadgets

    Hahah the lemon powered clock. These are some fantasticly rubbish ideas. I'd love to meet the creators and see if they were joking or not..
  6. Making your own

    We make our own jams and chutneys in this house. Of course recycling all food to turn into compost, in order to grow more vegetables. I'd be interested in making my own tooth paste if someone could recommend a decent recipe?
  7. What are the plants in your yard?

    We have so many plants and vegetables growing in our back garden. To name a few: Cauliflower Carrots Spring Onions Tomatoes Rocket My dad has become very keen on becoming hunter gatherer and provider for the family..
  8. Fiji Water "for the planet"

    Yeah this packing is so ridiculous. I am pretty against bottle water. Fullstop. I don't care where it's from.
  9. Top 100 Polluters list

    I really expected BP to be a lot higher up than that! Especially with all the oil spills.. This is a really interesting list and thank you for sharing it with us. So are these people also the mostly highly taxed? What is being done to help convert these polluters?
  10. WATCH: Top Spanish Matador Gored (GRAPHIC)

    I saw the video of the horn going through his neck a while back and I have absolutely no sympathy for the man. I hope that more accidents like this take place so that the sport will be banned entirely. It's a totally unneccesary tradition that is no better than Roman's going to the Colosseum to see other people getting killed.
  11. "Whaling in Norway involves the hunting of the Minke whale for the purpose of using the whale meat for human consumption, generally in Northern Norway. This hunting has occurred since the early 20th Century, and some still continue the practice in the modern day." Roughly 3,000 whales a year by Norway alone! This is a crazy figure. Has anyone found any petitions to sign in order to stop this? How can we help?
  12. Trash Islands

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPgreOZzXlo This is an interesting video that discusses these topics. I can't actually answer this question myself but now you've brought it up, it will be something that I investigate further. I would how much damage this causes to wild life every day.
  13. Why China cannot fight pollution and climate change

    That's an interesting fact, that I bet most people are not aware of! I agree that due to state ownership it would be easier for China to make drastic changes to it's environmental and economical structure.. in my opinion. However I bet there are a lot of factors that we are not taking into account.
  14. Eco trainers

    I don't often tend to buy eco friendly clothes but always try and go for a vegan option where possible. I'm not sure if this counts as well? Converse are quite a good choice because it doesn't hurt any animals in the making. I guess the rubber soles are a bit of an issue when it comes to recycling though. I would be interested to see some more links to environmentally friendly clothing if anybody else has any great recommendations?
  15. Giving Up the Smokes

    Hey! Good luck IronSight! I think you're making an extremely sensible decision. 4 years is long enough and any longer you'll be kicking yourself.. in the lungs. Going cold turkey is the best way. I know this from personal experience. It's all about replacing that habit with something else and trying not to surround yourself with other people who smoke. I didn't smoke much myself though so had no need to cut down particularly but I guess that's the right choice if you are a heavy smoker.
