Title idea from brilliant post at Offtone.com
While walking from my mom’s house to my dad’s, I happened upon a man blowing leaves with his leafblower. And I was thinking “That is the dumbest shit ever.” It’s this huge, polluting, noisy ass son a gun that BLOWS LEAVES. I mean, couldn’t we come up with better applications for our technology. It was polluting gas all over the place, and I could still hear it when I was 3 blocks away. Whatever happened to brooms?!? Too much work, I guess. I mean with a broom, you actually have to move your arms and apply pressure to the sweeping motion. But no, us lazy ass americans gotta eliminate all effort and exersize from our daily activities. Why would you want to blow leaves away in the first place? To make your front yard spotless? Fuck that. If you can’t handle the leaves, cut down the effin tree. Where in society’s unwritten laws is it stated that front lawns must be devoid of leaves? pfff. When I get my own house, there’s going to be some intense sweeping action. Maybe I can’t stand leaves in my front yard either, but at least i don’t use a fuckin’ LEAF BLOWER. Word.
