    What have you done to improve the world?

    This is carrying on from the Bono thread a bit. Lots of people bad mouthing the guy. I'm wondering what anyone else has done to improve quality of life on planet Earth?

    I've a standing order for NSPCC and WWF that're both fairly meagre compared to my salary. I try my hardest to get my wee man grown up to be a decent human being. I'd like to think I talk people out of poersonal atrocities at times too.

    To surmise, I do f#ck all to improve the world. Do you?

    I'm planning to become a proper Earth Scientist over the next couple of years.

    Therefore the likelyhood is I will be doing something

    I changed all the lightbulbs in my house to these ecofriendly dudes. 14.50 each, take ages to light up properly, when they do its a harsh white light. Still. apparently they last ages
    They're gone, not here, forgotten

    Re: What have you done to improve the world?

    Apart from separating rubbish (fairly easy to do over here), giving up my car, having a bit of thought for my neighbours once in a while and crushing the evil Dark Empire Dastard "Tang" (kept out of the press), I think the best thing I have done for the Earth is give quite a few humans the benefit of the doubt more often than some.

    If this isn't good for my karma in the next year or two, I'm fecked

    I invented the wheel. Although I have to say I've rested on my laurels a bit since then.

    If everyone lived like you we'd need 1.4 planets. So how the feck is it remotely possible that that's better than average? In the UK more than likely that's true, but it isn't just the UK is it.

    Going back through it I need to do the following to get down to 1 planet living:-

    Have another child (or get a lodger).
    Get a job closer to home and walk to the office.
    Stop going abroad by plane
    Give up dairy produce
    Stop buying processed food.
    Build an eco-home to live in.

    I'd like to live closer to work.

    My point was that this sort of thing is used by many self-righteous people to say things like you just did. Except it's not true. It's not better than average, it's better than average in this country. And this country is a major cause of carbon emissions.

    I believe that you do make an effort, and you should be applauded for that. However even with that effort you are still using a disproportionate amount of the worlds resources.

    Mines was 1.3 fwiw so it's not like I'm saying you're a canute or something like that.

    Re: What have you done to improve the world?

    Back around 1985 the BBC national news on a Saturday evening used to say "the such and such game is on Match Of The Day following this programme, viewers look away now." They would then give the Scottish results. All the Scottish results. This had happened since the year dot.

    So one time around 1985 I got fed up with this crap and wrote a letter to the BBC telling them that since Sportscene was a BBC programme too, there was no reason why they couldn't apply the same 'look away now' routine for the game about to be shown in Scotland following the news.

    The following Saturday, and every Saturday since....."viewers in Scotland will be blah blah blah, look away now".

    So whenever you hear that on the Saturday evening BBC News think of the legacy Hampden_Hibby has given you and the world, a legacy that will endure even when I'm food for worms in my cold, cold grave.

    Re: What have you done to improve the world?

    Feck. I was 4.1 planets.

    The fortnightly flights I have to take with my work skewed my result badly as the rest of the scores were pretty low.

    I'm trying harder than you. Youre getting your carbon footprint confused with your planet requirement.
    Easy done, there's few on this Board who haven't done that at some point I'll warrant.

    Or maybe it's me that's confused.




    What planet are you on?

    Damn it Janet...I knew I wasnt as good as you I was getting it wrong, it looks like I need to up my sole use of vehicle count to add extra points to my planetary requirements.

    How could I have been so wrong :dub9:
