    I can imagine the people sitting in the office recieving all the phone calls and the people doing the tallying. It would be like Wall Street but on Speed.

    "One more death, no, make that two, hang on, three, no four."
    Some guy huridly asks, "How did they die?"
    He replies, "Wait, make that five, six, seven, ****! Eight...um, the first guy died of Cancer, the second of smoking, wait...nine, now ten, geez...when's my lunch break!?"

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Theres a digital board thing in Subiaco that has number of deaths due to smoking or something on it. Not sure if its in WA, or what, but its kind of creepy when you see it change

    I think what He was getting at was that as long as people want refrigerators , SUVs and stuff , the companies will provide them .
    I mean, which Texan would be willing to give up his SUV for a Hydrogen or solar powered vehicle ?

    I weren't blaming t'companies, though. They're inanimate and can't propagate the system on their own, can they? (Cue Structure/Agency debate)
