Ok, there's a thread that asks people to say what they are doing, but what about the path not yet taken?

You, you, you.....heathen!

I have to admit that for all our green efforts, my wife & I can't seem to give up our hot tub. As we get older it's very soothing and theraputic. But, it burns thru $30/mo in electricity.

I haven't given up my computer yet. That would mean that the husband and I had to share his. NEVER!

You're wrong.

It doesn't waste electricity, it wastes brain matter.

I keep the heat up so hubby doesn't get crabby. But hey, it's cheaper than marriage counseling when he gets unbearably whiny.

I also eat meat. I eat a lot of it. I think I'd bathe in it if I could. TAKE THAT carbon footprint!

The fact that I'm alive means I'm wasting energy, if you take things to the illogical conclusion of so many uber radical greenies.
