RANDOM THOUGHTS — OIL vs SAND

Glass is made of sand, right?  

And plastic?  Isn’t it made from petroleum?

As I was just drinking my plastic-encased lemonade, and one of these random thoughts assaulted me, it occurred to me that we once used to deliver drinkables in glass jars, … like milk?  We then returned them, someone’s, … bosses, paid them to cleanse them and refill ’em.  

Now we deliver drinks to the grocery store in containers made from petroleum products, yet we have plenty of sand and little oil.  

Oil costs more right?   Or, does it?

Am I right is does it seem that something here doesn’t quite compute?

Having gone “GREEN” sure sounded like a good thing, but what if we required containers to be made of glass, instead of plastic?  

Well glass breaks and people are just not responsible …. then there’s the space issue.   But what if there were a deposit of a couple dollars?   Our kids would get their allowance because the also got their exercise returning the glass jars to the store and bringing home the change. 

The plastic …… can it be recycled back into oil?   But we have plenty of sand, right?   And glass ….. even if it’s broken, can’t “employees” melt it down … back into glass and make more “bottles”?

Never mind ….. 

These random thoughts rarely fail to confuse me.   Maybe I’m just suffering from what they call old age syndrome?

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
