just a thought…

I was just thinking about food (as per usual) and trying to think of an easy way to consume the recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables when a random thought occurred to me: What if there was a sandwich spread that was made from vegetables and could hence count toward the daily vegetable requirement? A simple thing like that could make life so much easier.

Yeah, sure, it probably wouldn’t taste that good, and you’d probably lose quite a bit of nutritional value from all the processing in the production of the spread but, hey, it was just a thought…

Another random thought on an unrelated topic occurred to me a while back, but I’ve been a bit hesitant about publicly publishing it because it might be a little bit controversial…

I think I had this thought on the way to work one morning (the morning commute is a very good time for pondering). On this particular morning, I was thinking about the use of petrol and the imminent depletion of all oil reserves. Then I thought, “What if we just ban (or phase out) all motor sports which involve vehicles that consume petrol?”

To be honest, I don’t follow any motor sports, so I don’t know what eco-friendly initiatives they already have in relation to reducing carbon footprint and resource conservation, etc, etc (yeah, sure, I could have just Googled it and found out for myself, but I’m taking a break from study this week, so that includes studying random things unrelated to my profession). So maybe they’re already doing a lot to minimise their impact on the environment, or maybe they could be doing more – I’m not going to judge that. It was just a thought.

Besides, if I wanted to argue that the world could do without motor sports, then other people could argue that we could do without other petrol-guzzling and/or electricity-consuming leisure activities. And then wouldn’t the world become such a dull place?
