Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

How long did it take you to compile that lot?

Surprisingly quickly, BOAB, and I suspect I've only scratched the surface.

Don't forget the consumption of meat!

(although Garnaut, in a masterly compromise, called for the replacement of beef in our diet with kangaroo)

There's a bit of duplication in your titles. You could join 'fat people' and 'air travel' and call them Al Gore. Just a thought.

Computers. They use lots of electricity, which is generated from carbon fuels. They should be banned. Also, routers, and firewalls, which are computers too.

Don't forget private jets. Likely the most wasted fuel per passenger mile there is.

Why don't you socialists just ban people?

If I was a socialist I would ban the real anonymous who hides behind the title so he can blog inane little comments. Like a child prodding a sleeping cat with a stick. Mehaul.

Strangely enough the international Marxist AGW faithful have not yet added any musical instruments that are useless without electrical amplification. I guess that would mean music would have to fall back on the white male imperialist tradition of classical music!

Lots of very silly things on that list, as one would expect.

But I can find no objection to banning drive-throughs. Good effing riddance, I says.
