Litter by little

To approximately the red arrow and back

I took a walk along the shore and then back via the road. Along the way I formulated a hypothesis: The crappier the beer, the more likely its drinkers are to toss the empties… wherever. I picked up a few cans of Keystone and Bud Lite and took them to the dumpster. Tomorrow I’ll take a trash bag on my walk. And I might wear gloves. 

There’s not a lot of litter here, just enough to get me muttering about how lazy and/or clueless some people are. I mean, how long do you have to stare at a plastic bag caught on a bush before finally thinking, “Should I throw that away? I mean, it’s not mine. It was there when I arrived. It’s not my job to clean up after people. Eh, I think I’ll just let it ugly up my view.”


  1. Nomads have compulsion to return nature to it's state of naturalness.
    A virtue only surpassed by the pleasure of nature's most attractive state, once cleansed of discarded idiocracy and shit paper.

  2. Picking up trash is the difference between adults and full-grown children.

  3. My wife just reminded me as one does for others God does for you.
