i just watched another episode of 30 days, which is put together by the guy who made "Super Size Me." Gimmicky concept with redeeming value: put clueless people in challenging situations for 30 days.
the one i watched last night was called "off the grid," where they took annoying city folks and stuck them in this eco-community in minnesota called "dancing rabbit." i've heard about "dancing rabbit" for years, so it was neat to see how they run their land: solar power, hu-manure composting toilet, veggie fuel for the car, fire stove for hot shower, grow all their food.
they said if everyone in the u.s. changed one of their lightbulbs to incandescent that's enough to get rid of one nuclear plant. so today i replace the burnt out kitchen bulb with an eco bulb, how exciting! every little bit...
another episode worth watching is the one where they put a devout christian in a muslim community.
