bernie benefit, adipose gas guzzling

bernie is a richard linklatter movie starring jack black, matthew
mcconaughey,shirley maclaine and my nephew he of the rain
water tank fame that did not fall in my rainwater tanks last fall
going after a rock i dropped accidently into one of my tanks
(on the right of this blog go to google search  then type
my nephew he
and click to read about this)

well maybe hes not starring in the movie but he was on the
film crew that filmed the movie and they snuck him in the
movie as an injured high school student
to us he is starring in the movie

last time he came here to film a movie he brought tons
of rain with him
hopefully he will do the same this time

richard linklater has property in bastrop that was
damaged by the fires here recently
his neighbors property burned up but his was only
partially damaged

much of the movie was filmed in the bastrop area

they had scheduled a crew and cast screening of the movie
before it was released but he decided to do the benefit
showing earlier to raise money for the bastrop fire victims
all proceeds and donations will go to them

jack black plays an undertaker who befriends shirley maclaine
a rich widow then .........
watch the movie to find out what happens
its pg13
look for my nephew
he is carried by jack black in an accident scene

we all know about miles per gallon (mpg) when it comes to gas
milage on our cars

now theres a mpg bmi ratio-i made it up
(bmi is basal metabolic index a measure of how obese you are
no its not like mpg where the higher number is good
ideal is <25 obese is >30 morbid obese is >45)

i propose a normal ratio is 1.6
eg my car gets 40 mpg and my bmi is normal at 25
so my ratio of mpg to bmi is 1.6 is normal
lets see a morbid obese bubba in a dooley getting 15 mpg
ratio would be 3.75
maybe a tax credit could be given for a low ratio
sounds good to me

it seems as the bmi goes up the mpg goes down
the us consumes an extra billion gallons of gas each
year because of our high bmis ie were obese

dont hear the politicians talking about losing weight
to help get us off foreign oil
wouldnt that be a green way to do it
for each lb of weight we gain we as a nation
consume 39 million gallons of gas a year
(39,000,000 x $3.50 per gallon = $136,000,000)
or overall
(1,000,000,000 x $3.50=$3,500,000,000)


the organicgreen doctor just figured out how to
maybe get ourself off foreign oil in a green way

maybe relieve some pollution and global warming climate
change or whatever you call it
(something exists from this pollution from the cars maybe call it
smog-whatever its is its not good for us)

maybe balance the federal budget

maybe increase money back into the economy to stimulate the
economy with no new taxes or federal spending
(bet the tea party folks like this)

maybe reduce medical costs and increase longevity

maybe it is this simple
could we trim the deficit by trimming our selves
nah surely its not that easy

numbers dont lie though
fix your ratio
