"A-noose" of the Decade

Pardon my incivility, but I find myself wanting to just slap this Limey gobbler sideways with a sledgehammer. I can't help it. It's the Scot in me.

The standard-issue BBC bullshit reads: "Sculptor and artistic luminary Antony Gormley shares his wisdom on matters ecological. “Dispense with your socks,” says he. “This is a time of global warming. Through our feet we can begin to feel it.” This is no doubt because “our feet connect with our brains” and “engage with time.” And what’s more, “through our feet we can begin to be one people, standing through gravity on one Earth.” Yes, standing through gravity, united in our socklessness. Go barefoot for Gaia, people. It’s “an act of solidarity.” -- Via davidthompson: Go Barefoot for Gaia

I don't have a drop of Scot blood in me, and I feel the same way...

The only way his feet could connect with his brain is if he had his legs up his ass.

I wish this progressive mastermind and his enablers could have been running around barefoot the other day at -5F. As they contemplated how much less sensitive their new stumps are than their feet were, perhaps they would come to the realization that sometimes it is better to think about the consequences of some of their ridiculous planet saving schemes before putting them into action.

This guy needs to get out of the coffee shop a bit more.

Obviously he hasn't really been communing with nature since these words do not seem to harmonize with his mellow:

Brambles, Sand when the temp is > 100 deg F, a field of Volcanic Obsidian, Alaska's Ressurection Glacier, etc...

I could go on and on...

There is a passage in Orwell's "The Road to Wigan Pier" where he takes to tasks people like this.

The guy isn't anything new, if this little item has got it right:
