Now @Puffer Fish
Don't be so quick to point the finger at the British. Moths are ubiquitous. Your beloved China has 108 species of moths including this behemoth:
As you can see the GIANT Asian moth is a darned site bigger than the weeny European one. (I find this a contrast to people which are just the opposite. At least as far as height is concerned. You will have to check with @rancid WRT penises.) But then I digress.
I object to your article because it is very sexist. There is this comment: "...women don't clean house as much anymore." Well three things to say about that:
First, where in the book does it say that women have to do all of the cleaning? Men can clean too. If I wanted to I could completely abandon my manhood and do the cleaning.
Secondly, why do you think women cleaned more previously? I remember the 50's when most women stayed home and I can tell you that they were not spending all day cleaning. They did some, of course, but from what I observed on the scene, mostly they watched game shows, soap operas, me fucking around and ate tons of candy. So much candy that they blew up like a "@Puffer Fish if you will allow me to say it. Were talking big. After awhile they had more chins than a Chinese phone book. And their poor suffering husbands, who married the cheerleader with the biggest tits (for love) found himself in public with a girl who needed her own zip code and a bon-bon bill that was more than his '56 Ford payments. Very much like Utah today.
And finally, women deserve better. They should be allowed to work and seek the fulfillment that comes from being in an exhilarating and lucrative job. As I write this I am in my home and that dear sweet Ms. Ramirez has just finished making our dinner and will tidy up before she collects her paycheck and goes home knowing that she has helped keep the wheels of commerce going and is a shining example of women breaking out (in this case from Guatemala) and pushing the limits of their economic aptitude. She aspires to someday get Social Security and retire. There is a minor problem with that but then I digress again.
...some people are installing wool as that insulation.
Oh ick. Really Puffer Fish. That is just sick. Never mind the tens of thousands of sheep who are naked to the world just so some posh middle class barrister can keep warm without having sex with his wife. (Or any other sex worker for that matter.) Never mind them. How about the smell? We all know that wool is not exactly the main ingredient in cologne. And what if you have a Scottish house guest. How is the poor unfortunate soul supposed to sleep? I guess there is little chance he will roll out of bed but then a couple of double scotch's and a Viagra will work just as well and not keep him awake trying to lay on his hands.
In 2008, the EU banned the use of naphthalene, long traditionally used as the ingredient in mothballs to keep moths away.
The Germans banned Moth Balls?
Fuckers. Is it not enough that they own the EU without leaving everyone else with little holes in their kilts? I'm telling you, you had better start watching the message traffic between Berlin and Tokyo again. I hear Merkle has a map of Poland on her desk. Just saying.
Seems like another unintended consequence of the "back to nature" movement and government laws.
You mean as opposed to non government laws? But I don't think so. I think the moths are coming in with shipments of Chinese merchandise. I mean you can't so much as open a new pair of sneakers without some critter flying out. And what is that smell when you fire up a new toaster for the first time? Moth unless I miss my guess.
Thank you for posting this enlightening and deeply concerning post. I think when the word gets out this thread will be very popular. But try not to worry about the British. There will always be an England.
