How can anyone "LITTER"!!!!!!!!!!!!

10 posts in this topic

It never ceases to amaze me...I'm referring to the mindless act of "LITTERING"! mad

I was out at one of my favorite photography haunts recently and as usual I found a number of interesting subjects.

I was subjected to a beautiful sunrise in which Lake Winnipeg was shroud in a thick layer of fog.

After shooting a series on the sunrise I happened upon this newly hatched Killdeer, what a little beauty!

Then the ugly side of nautre photography raised it head soon after I began walking along the beach! How can anyone with a conscience leave their used items behind, especially this kind of material!!!! mad

It's bad eneough leaving it behind for others to clean up, but smashing the bottles on the sand! Great place for someone to be walking along bare feet!

Here's another reason I can't tollerate those thoughtless idiots who "LITTER"! Checkout the mono fishing line hanging off the pelicans left foot! It's just a matter of time before this poor bird becomes entangled in some brush thanks to the moron who simply tossed the line on ther ground! mad

All your comments are appreciated. As expected, the general response to "litter" is pretty much shared by all of us who spend a great deal of of time in the outdoors. Unfortunately people who litter have never been taught any different. When they were growing up no one ever told them not litter or to clean up after themselves.

When I was jsut a young lad it was my father who taught me not to litter. I remember the first time the "littering" subject came up as though it was yesterday, believe me it wasn't yesterday! My father and I were out one day to partiscipate in a little target shooting with my new 22.cal rifle I just received as a birthday present. To this day I can still hear my fathers voice telling me that "never" point a gun at anyone and always consider the gun to be loaded. He went on to say that there's no such thing as an unloaded firearm. The site were were at for my very first target shooting session was an abandoned gravel pit, it was great place to safely practice shooting some paper targets my father brought along. During the practice sesion I had spotted a pepsie bottle that someone had pitched down one of the slopes of the gravel pit. I took aim and fired off a round smashing the bottle upon impact! Whata great shot I made right! Wrong my father never thought it was much of an accomplishment and he let me know by making pick up every visible piece of that broken bottle. He went on to explain that by breaking the bottle and leaving the mess behind, that someday some unsuspecting person is going to step on that glass and be seriously harmed. It all made sense to and to this day I have to give my father all the credit for teaching me why we shouldn't "litter" Thanks dad! smile

Littering is something that should be a mandatory topic in our public shool systems. In other words teach kids while they're young that littering is not cool! That's my rant for the week! wink

Stu - these are wonderful shots. As far as littering, I just don't get it. I was taught from a very young age to ALWAYS put garbage where it belongs. We also camped quite a bit and the rule was "make sure the campsite is cleaner than when you got here" and that still holds true today. I can't believe the [PoorWordUsage] and litter that people leave behind in a campsite. This is a valuable lesson I have passed on to not only my son, but my grandchildren as well.

I agree - littering should be taught in schools, but it should come from the parents as well.

There's a simple answer to that question: they're lazy

the sad thing is it goes so much farther then just being lazy and or uneducated to the negative effects or littering as is depicted quite well by these pics both by the busted bottles which of course some one had to take the time and effort to bust them up .....then even better depicted bu the 3rd shot in were not only did they leave the bottles there ......but they took the time and effort to fill one of them up with sand (presumably while drinking the other to pass time i would guess) so unfortunately it does go so much farther then just laziness and being uneducated about it it has alot to do with the fact that alot of ppl just don't care one way or the other which is truly sad

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
