    What is planet earth to you? Are you an owner, or a tenant?


    The difference between a good tenant and a good owner:

    A good tenant with dogs will do the best job he reasonably can at picking up his own dogs shit.

    A good owner with dogs will pick up all of the dog shit he finds, secure in the knowledge that the tenants he doesn’t like can be evicted.​


    Owner.....? Tenant.......?

    Next question... Are ya good? :eusa_think:

    I live on 300 acres in northwestern Illinois. I have 3 dogs. They can shit anywhere on the 300 acres they feel like unloading. Nature takes care of the shit. What happen? You step on a dog turd today?

    No. The kind of ownership that allows one to be a bad owner is something I can only dig and not relate to. I am quite happy with the 26 acres I share with my friends in a community. Living as a social creature forces me to be a good owner. I was musing that fact when we were playing in the garden this morning.

    :eusa_think: What if more Earthlings felt like owners? Would we do a better job of "Tending the Garden?"*

    *Genesis Chapter 1: And God said unto Adam, "Dude, you have 2 jobs: Name the animals and tend the garden - do good with those and I'll give you a Woman to see if that don't fuck with your head."

    -As paraphrased by an Average Joe.

    :eusa_think: Is that why Jews, Muslims & Christians have all done such a piss-poor job of tending the garden when they've had their chances thus far in history?

    You'd think that the first to get the word would be the first to get it right, but hey... it's not my god. :eusa_whistle:

    It does. But any gardner will tell you that there is much better shit than dog shit to put in your garden. Thanks to free enterprise, it's relatively cheap shit, and easy shit to get, too.

    Actually we are the earth, for a time we are given the ability to move about on our own, but eventually the cosmos reclaims us and we go back to what we were.
