I Didn’t Want To Live Forever Anyway


We’re all gonna die!

Yoga pants are destroying the Earth

Comfortable clothes are emerging as a source of plastic that’s increasingly ending up in the oceans and potentially contaminating seafood, according to Gulf Coast researchers launching a two-year study of microscopic plastics in the waters from south Texas to the Florida Keys.

The project, led by the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, will rely partly on volunteers participating in coastal cleanup events. It also will expand a year’s worth of data collected around the state of Florida that predominantly found microfibers — shreds of plastic even smaller than microbeads flowing down bathroom sinks and shower drains.

Yoga pants, Patagonia’s cozy jackets, sweat-wicking athletic wear and other garments made from synthetic materials shed microscopic plastic fibers — called “microfibers” — when they’re laundered. Wastewater systems flush the microfibers into natural waterways, eventually reaching the sea.

“Anything that’s nylon or polyester, like the fleece-type jackets,” University of Florida researcher Maia McGuire said.


I would be really upset if they outlawed yoga pants. I think Chip Wilson (founder of Lululemon) deserves a Nobel Prize. But they really need to be restricted to real women of a certain size and age range.

As for the “microbead crisis” that’s a bunch of hooey. We will be buried in disposable diapers long before microbeads are a problem.

This is an open thread.

  1. If I would have posted something like this back at TC a bunch of feminists would have had the vapors.

    I am sick of how so many of these new guiltmongers like to pick on mostly products that women use. Yoga pants, skin care products, makeup, and of course you’re going to hell if you use disposable diapers for your babies. (And I did use cloth diapers, but always hated that it felt like such a damn cult.)

      I agree. I think this whole “guilt you into doing something” has run its course.

    • Jadzia says:

      See also: The constant harassment and boycotting nonsense against Ivanka Trump. But when it comes to her brothers’ business activities? Crickets from the left.

      • Jadzia says:

        Well, mostly crickets. I’m now vaguely remembering some fauxrage about one of the sons’ charitable activities.

    That’s a very happy tree.

  6. I hope this bank robber didn’t want to live forever.

      I bet dumb fuck wasn’t expecting that.
      I just love stories with a happy ending.

        “Good Guy” with a gun may be in a shit load of trouble, especially in IL. Shooting a guy in the back running out of a door doesn’t fit any legal definition of self defense.

    Bill Kristol has been teetering on the edge of insanity since Trump won the primary — he’s officially crossed the Rubicon.

    Might there be a connection?

    • Somebody says:

      Hell Dora the judge is an old school buddy of Obama’s and they had a meeting yesterday, but I’m sure it is just a coincidence. Nothing to see here, move along.

        President Trump alluded on Tucker that much was coming forward over the next few weeks. I hope so.
        Very much believing hillary said “we’re all going to jail” after the nbc townhall. The response to the first 56 days screams of desperation. Over Montenegro mccain accuses a fellow Senator on the Senate floor of colluding with Putin?
        I know I’m going Alex Jones here, but the only country to really tell soros to fuck off was Russia.
        Dumping millions of immigrants in every western society destroys the fabric. The bit in the news a few days ago about students at a basketball game wearing red, white, and blue and it was somehow racist because the other team had a number of foreign born students. Wait. What? They came here. Do they not revere the colors of our flag? Why move to a country that you do not respect? (I know the answer)
        Should mccain get his confrontation with Russia it will be the children of the deplorables that fight his war.

    It seems to be time to beat up on Trump supporters.

    Pro-Trump radio host Michael Savage claims he was assaulted while having dinner with his toy poodle Teddy
    Savage, 74, says he was having dinner in Tiburon, California, with his 12-year-old pooch when a man began taunting him by saying, ‘weener, weener’
    Heckler was apparently referring to Savage’s legal name, Michael Alan Weiner
    Man then allegedly knocked Savage to the ground and punched another diner who tried to intervene
    Both men had placed each other under citizen’s arrest, but police let them go
