Most of us can agree that pollution is bad, yet it might not be worth doing anything about.
You can’t blame people for opposing air quality regulations when respiratory health is on the line. Or the climate that impacts our food supplies. Or the high price of SPF 2000 sunscreen that leaves you looking a payday shy of Sasha Grey.
But did you ever consider that pollution is breaking our hearts, you inhuman monster?
And while we’re talking about broken hearts and your business practices, let your employees go home early.
Did you even call your mother this weekend?
NBC’s Brian Williams, who took yet more time off from not reporting real news, delivered a commencement address to Ohio State University in Columbus graduates. He used his podium time to give college students a job: fixing the United States.
Williams claimed that “there is nothing wrong with America that someone from Ohio State can’t fix.” He then laid out the main areas of focus: “energy, politics, diplomacy, science, education, military, transportation,” and climate.
Williams set them loose with a “Go get ’em, OH!” (The graduates, in fact, remained seated until their hangovers cleared up.) At this very moment, all of these problems will now be addressed by countless OSU graduates with degrees in Communications, Marketing and Literature.
“Well, it gives me something to do while I look for a real job over the next year,” said Artie Muskegee, a graduating OSU Music Therapy student.
