  •  obnoxious consumer culture (none)
    I cannot abide the consumer culture - it makes me feel so dirty (and not even in a good way) to see how much crap people buy buy buy every day. The day after Christmas, my future MIL and SIL went shopping, and came home with all kinds of useless shit - because it was on sale. I just don't understand that mindset.

    My parents still live in the same 1 story house they bought when they got married and were broke - they always told my brother and me "yes, we could afford a really big house now, but we have enough space for the four of us and our cats, anything larger would just be to store junk. and who needs extra junk? It doesn't make you a better person." If only more people had that kind of self-assuredness that they didn't need to accrete possessions to feel worthy.

    And don't get me started on the food aspect. Oh my, it boggles my mind.

    Ask Copernicus about pushing limits.
