Stuff You Didn’t Know

There are some odd perks to doing this blog. While I’ve mentioned our fans in India and Japan a few times, mostly because that’s so random it deserves note, we also pick up other stragglers from around the globe who keep things interesting. They send me emails (yes, that’s my email at the bottom of this post), links, pictures, and all sorts of fun stuff. While I don’t share their personal info or pics, mostly because I think it vacillates between rude and pandering (HEY LOOK! I know a ____insert…

Oddly enough people weren’t stupid…

Humans are the abusive partner in this relationship. However, as it turns out, not all humans are assholes. Some have started trying to do good things to, and with, our pal water. I’ve already written about The Ocean Cleanup, currently based near Tsushima, an island between Japan and South Korea. It’s taking on the daunting task of removing…
