    I love alternate energies. Not because they are going to save the world but
    because they are cool and can be a boom to American companies and reduce
    our dependence on oil.

    So, the Discovery channel started the new Green network. I watched it for
    the first time tonight. Where is that puke smiley when you need it??
    Hey guys, Jerry is dead man. Give it up. I shoulda known better.

    Lame is an understatement.

    Discovery had that show with the young guys that drove around the country
    looking at alternate energies, green(I hate that term) buildings, and other
    interesting stuff. Sure, they had the personalities of dead grass but the show
    wasn't half bad.

    The two shows I saw were artsy fartsy like. Just poor.


    There are so many things they can do but instead it looks like a self promoting,
    "Green" marketing, "I rode my bike to the mailbox so I am saving the world",
    crap channel.

    Why do I think you would sweat bacon grease? Hey, that's a biofuel.

    If we got everyone to skip shaving once a week we would save a ton
    of water and energy.
