Australian? I thought Jim Carrey was Canadian.

HWMNBN was more a pretentious git than an Australian, I'd say.

I think most people shop where its most convenient for them - either close to their home or at least on their way home.

Use diesel. Does a good job on the weeds and isn't nearly as flammable.

Oreilly's sells battery acid. Give some to the weeds, the ph goes to 2, the plant dies, then the limestone neutralizes the acid. Keep the hose near in case you get some on you or your clothes as it is very corrosive. And don't taste it.

Hopefully some future employer doesn't see Reed's comment, they might be put off by it. Once it's on the internet, it's on there forever.

If Reed Jones is in fact his real name, he's probably wanted in Austrailia under his real name.

You fools. That's Robbie Williams. He's British, and he's still singing that Angels song.

Aussies have always been friends of the US. Not sure if he is a wannebe, though.

Unwanted weeds? Who wants weeds?

I shop at a store if: 1. It has the product I want. 2. It's cheaper than other stores. 3. It's convenient to get to. 4. It's in a safe area. 5. I need the product NOW (otherwise I might order online). Environmental friendliness is pretty far down on the list.

Yes. I'm always looking for an excuse to drive my Hummer by myself.

Especially when my Corvair is in the shop.

Any building using less energy somehow is significant. Means less radioactive waste coming out of the smokestack .

Only if all the store's electricty is generated by unicorn toots. And all their employees make at least $17.50 an hour.

Only if I was driving a LPG or a electric powered vehicle and my house was using the solar panels for the electricity.

Question is how green are the batteries that store the charge and, when the batteries done then how green is it to dispose them?

Maybe. If they are demonstrably more environmentally friendly and they aren't excessively more expensive. A "We fight global warming" sign on the door won't work.

I do most of my shopping at the Dillons near my home. Everything else I buy online.
