    People with lawns in Bangkok generally have walls.

    Why? The media says walls don't work.

    I think it’s more about the straws getting caught inside sea animals.

    It happened one time on the internet so we need to believe it's a common occurrence.

    I'm being 100% serious. I don't disagree that straws are a drop in the bucket, but the paper ones work

    There are a lot of pics actually if you look. Penn and Teller did a show on their Bullshit series which ties into this a bit. It was about recycling. Most recycling except for one thing maybe it was glass, actually uses more of the energy they are trying to save. A lot of what they tell us is pure nonsense. We should focus on not throwing garbage in the ocean instead of banning straws and the other nonsense the nanny state imposes. If the straws and other plastics didn’t end up in the ocean a lot of these issues wouldn’t be a thing.

    I live in Ohio.

    The only sea creatures around here are the whales at Walmart.

    That paper ones are absolute dog shit. Anyone who says otherwise isn't actually using them.

    Again, a lot of pictures on the internet isn't necessarily indicative of a sweeping problem.

    Not only this, but we should also acknowledge that it's mostly Asian countries dumping trash in the oceans.

    Stop trying to pretend Ohio is landlocked like Kansas. You have a huge fucking lake in your backyard.

    Maybe the ones in Canada, but not here.

    I am going to get one today and take a video of me drinking with it to prove you wrong.

    Most of that lake belongs to the straw-sucking bastards in Canada.

    @Lars@Lars boasts often and loudly about how Lake Ontario is just like living on a real coast.

    He has convinced no one. Your shit waves and lack of salt in the water mean that you're both landlocked.

    Sorry if I am taking my frustration with @Lars@Lars out on you. But you can both eat a dick.

    Landlocked?

    Read a book. Freshwater is also better than salt water you h2o n00b.

    Here are some waves for you

    This is from 2010 also. I wonder if has gotten better or worse. @Galt@Galt why are you being so defensive? This isn't my interest so I have no clue if it's accurate or not. Do you have opposing info?
