Has anyone tried to make these yet, or anything like them? I'm really interested in the idea, but I've not actually had verification this will work for a larger than average butt! I'm fairly sure I'll need some modifications, just because I always do. http://www.wonderhowto.com/wonderment/old-t-shirts-reincarnated-as-underwear-0113360/  In point of note, I plan to try it anyway, so I'll let you know in a few days!
 
 

Most days I drive to the park n ride and take the bus. It saves even more than my hybrid, but at least when I drive i opt for the hybrid. I swear I pay up to $30/mo for gas. It's amazing, but I feel even better knowing that I'm saving the environment if only just a little bit. (Sorry if this isn't allowed, feel free to remove or tell me to remove it if that's the case)

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting, finals have been taking all my waking hours!

First, I wanted to tell all of you about a really interesting experience I had last week. I participated in the 2008 "Bioblitz" project, which took place this year in the Santa Monica Mountains. Basically, a BioBlitz is a 24-hour inventory of all living organisms in a given area. That means the place is swarmed with members of the National Park Service, National Georgraphic, volunteers, and loads of experts on just about everything you could think of! It was fascinating, and I saw so many things I would otherwise not have the opportunity to see. Get out there in nature people!

Here is the official National Geographic BLOG, where you can read all about what happened throughout the day.

and just to prove I was there...check out the pictures...
1. welcome sign
2. identifying a species of bee
3. using an small remote controlled camera
to view the fish at Malibu Lagoon
4. a frog came to say hello
5. what happens when you give college students free stuff





---------------------------------------------------------------
Secondly, I'm thinking about volunteering this summer at this place where you collect turtle eggs so that poachers don't get them first. Has anybody ever done anything like that? I'd love to hear whether or not you enjoyed it.

Have you guys heard this about the polar bears? Ridiculous!

--------------------------------------------------------------------
the Bush Administration finally listed the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act today. I'd love to tell you that that's great news, but there's a BIG catch. The Administration listed the polar bear as threatened instead of endangered, and invoked a clause (known as a "4(d) exemption") that excludes global warming from the list of threats the federal government has to consider when trying to protect polar bear habitat.

Global warming is the biggest threat facing polar bears today, and this little clause eliminates any protection the listing should have given to the polar bear.

Hello, I'm new here.

I just wanted to tell you how eco design has become part of the Design and Technology course in UK schools and colleges. I'm currently studying D&T and my exam is in a few weeks, we have to design, as part of the exam, some eco furniture to be used on display. Now that eco related products has become part of the course, all over the country, people are becoming aware of eco needs and stuff!! YAY!!!! I thought it would be a good thing to post because its a real step forward to saving the planet and having a better eco friendly life!!!

^_^ wooo eco furniture!

Guys, please take twenty minutes (it goes by fast, it's fascinating!) to watch this video. I can't believe I never really realized all this. I feel used, and awful, and afraid.
