My cup runneth over, or where the hell's the damn mop?
As further evidence Homo sapiens is exceeding the limits of its ecological niche, I enter into state's evidence exhibit 37c, the iPod Toilet Paper Holder with "4 Integrated high performance moisture free speakers that deliver clarity and high quality sound" as featured in yesterday's Sunday paper.
This latest capability of your iPod allows you to 'finish up' without missing a note or word of your favorite sounds or streaming podcasts by dispensing toilet paper as Iraqis without bathrooms are getting their asses blown off while our government, in our names, continues its endless, often mindless, debate on how best to mop up that little mess.
Any segment of a species which cannot abide by the natural limits set for its own sustainability without soiling its nest with lethal chemicals, without exterminating entire populations of its own or can't relieve itself without its iPod has a date with the dustbin of history.
