My dad just got a desk shipped to him and the styrofoam packing stuff (not the pellets; I'll get to those later) really pissed me off. I mean, I've always hated styrofoam. It breaks up into little itty-bitty pieces that suck to clean up, it makes that horrible squeaking sound along your spine, and to top it all off, it's generally non-recyclable (and when it is, it's very expensive to do so). And the packing peanuts, they get EVERYWHERE when you open them and they stick to anything with the slightest static cling (which means everything, since they're slightly charged themselves). I mean, humans have put a man on the moon, you'd think that we would be able to invent a lightweight, cheap, recyclable packing material by now. Your thoughts? P.S. Ten awesome points for whoever can tell me who said this and where it's from. "Life goes by pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
