It also decomposes in about half the time.

your source doesn't identify which takes more/less energy to recycle, however glass requires more energy to recycle.

and your source says glass will sit in a landfill indefinitely:
Glass is an inert substance and so is not directly harmful to the environment but it is not degradable either so if sent to a landfill site it will stay there indefinitely which is a real shame because glass is such an easy and very useful material which can be recycled over and over again without any loss to quality.

which is fine. i like salt too. but i'm not going to pretend that the job of science is to tell me what i want to hear, and i'm not going to pretend that science is just a bunch of pinhead no-fun angrypants who somehow think they know more than you do.

This is an interesting discussion in itself.
Most of our local health ins. companies will give you a $20 credit toward your gym membership if you go a minimum of 8-12 times per month.
So, I go to my YWCA, work-out fairly hard for 2 hours, but usually can only make it 10 times per month (My Health Partners requires 12 visits/month). However, there are dozens of guys who are rather hefty and haven't lost an ounce of fat or gained a fiber of muscle in the years I've been going who go every day or every other day and only sit in the sauna or hot tub.
They get the discount; I don't.


Also, I was in physical therapy last summer for my back. My insurance covered part of it, but each session, the therapist would tell me what areas to work on between visits and which muscles to strengthen, etc.
Does health ins. cover personal trainers? No.
Can I write off personal training fees on my taxes? No.
Can I write off physical therapy fees on my taxes? Yes.



We seem to have no interest in really getting people healthy or even putting the right incentives in place to help those that help themselves.

What about walking to the store that is only four blocks away? No need to take your car. I see people my age and older, all the time walking to the mall or K-Mart. Both of which are within a few blocks. Younger people always take their car. To buy a pair of shoes?

I can understand it. If you heavy items you can carry home. Such as furniture or a TV. But, PJ's and a pair of shoes. Come on. It's a nice day outside. Take a walk.

I'll be 54 next month and am not over weight. A slender, athletic built, as my DR. says. I have always been active. I am controlling my genetic, pre-type 2 diabetes and have actually reversed it with diet and exercise. No meds so far. Not easy. But, I do it.

You tell us. It was an opinion piece about how he wishes it was like the old days, those old days included the things anitram mentioned as well.

Why did you post this opinion piece? Do you believe those things make you man?

You know Associated Content is a pageview mill, right?

If you weren't just about the last wacky conservative around FYM you'd be suspended for trolling and not providing any kind of content beyond links to shady articles.

I think the mods are keeping you around so FYM doesn't become more of a liberal circlejerk than it already is.

It's a shame there aren't really many genuinely intelligent conservatives around FYM who can have a decent discussion or at least provide some basic context to the random crap they hotlink to.
