Just beCause?

"Suppose a cause that HASN'T affected your family"

I used to hear this and think what a great idea. Don't be so self centered by only thinking of your needs, but help out those around you who you aren't affiliated with. It's important to see the bigger picture as there are so many people out there who need our help. This I still agree with, BUT...

Tell me what's wrong with supporting a cause that has affected you or your family when you are that much more passionate about supporting it. Supporting a cause at random means you are randomly passionate about it. How much support and awareness will you raise with that kind of thinking?

If you have an ailing family member and you are motivated to raise a ton of support for them and others like them, why isn't it as good as supporting something else? How often do people raise money for a cause and actually see it cured? Have we completely eradicated cancer? AIDS? How can it be considered selfish if we know that our hard work won't cure each other (although we may like to), but hopefully others after we are gone?

just a thought

What's Better?

Has anyone ever seen a study done or any research for that matter on what is the best option for drying your hands after washing them in a public restroom... including what is better for the environment?! Paper or Hot Air?

-Paper obviously uses more trees
-Hot Air takes electricity which means...

I normally try and research this before I pose the question but I haven't today so I'm interested to see what you think. Ok well I just found a study while I was searching for a picture, sorry, couldn't help it... but form your opinion first before you read this... STUDY and then let me know what you think.

I found this cartoon through Raine Wilson's twitter page and thought I'd share it. The artist is Tony Luchbreath. That's all for now!
