"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
I swear, I was at an outdoor (and christian) concert a few years ago. I was standing along a wire fence on the perimeter separating the backstage area from the audience, many yards away from anyone. I expected and heard a few snide comments meant for me to hear by my christian brethren, but what I most remember was a golfcart carrying a well-known christian vocal group driving past. They had to be 20 yards away. Easy. They spotted me. I waved and smiled. One of them - swear to GOD! - made a stink face and waved her hand over her nose to signify my smoke bothered her. There was no possible way she could have smelled it. Or even seen it. She simply saw me holding a cigarette. And we were in a damn cow pasture for god's sake.

He looked at my cigarette, swerved towards me, and took a swing at my shoulder. Seriously. For reference, this was a 5'10-6'0 tall man weighing 250lbs, taking a swing at a then-20-year-old 5'4 girl who weighs all of 110 pounds. For smoking.
I dodged it. He was using a lot of force, but he was pretty slow. Too many Big Macs in that guy, I reckon.
