    Trump says that he is "a stable genius".
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    I agree there's a high level of nonsense to the plastic bag ban, but on the other hand, have you ever seen a reusable shopping bag blowing around the environment? Have you ever heard of aquatic life ingesting a reusable shopping bag? Are reusable bags getting washed into the waterways? Is a child in any danger of choking or suffocating if they play with a reusable shopping bag?

    OK, given even shopping trolleys are a regular find in the rivers there will also inevitably be reusable bags making there way there as well, but they're getting there through deliberate acts of disposal, not through accidentally being whipped away in the wind.

    Ending the supply of single use plastics in favour of reusable items is going to strike a bit of consumer resistance in the condom business.
    Cotton just seems wrong.
    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    Ever seen the damage to the environment caused by the manufacture of those reusable bags
    They are hardly as clean & green as some claim.
    ever seen the thousands of people using 'single use ' bags multiple times
    ever seen ACTUAL sea life eating an ACTUAL single use bag.... no you havnt.

    ever seen how easy it is to cheery pick facts
