The law doesn't expressly cover the sell of medical waste because the law makers never considered the idea. Law makers tend to see only what is, and then legislate it. And truth be told, I never heard of human fat being turned into fuel before. Have any of you? Turns out, we got all kinds of viable fuel alternatives that we don't even bother to explore. Bio diesel can be manufactured from vegetable oil, animal fats, even recycled restaurant grease, ethanol- I have heard of that one, is an alcohol based fuel. Why aren't aggressively developing that one? Hydrogen, that's coming, but we don't seem to be in a rush. Methanol is a wood alcohol, and then of course there's electricity which we don't use simply because- I've forgotten- why don't we have electric cars? Did we get rid of them because there're the most efficient? I bet it was because those that actually drove them claimed to love them. And then there's oil. We ignore all those cleaner, burning fuel alternatives, for oil. And sure it's not so efficient, it's expensive, it pollutes the air, but it gets presidents elected. And after all, this is the United States of America, we love oil. We do charity work in the Middle East because of it. We're oil people. The world is dying, folks. Global warming is real. And what's even more real is Americans are fat. And because we're fat, we're burning billions of gallons of gasoline carting ourselves around. We love fat; it leads to more profits for the oil companies, and as oil people, how about instead we harvest the fat. We already are, if you think about it. We have about half a million liposuctions a year in this country. That's now, without the philanthropic bonus. You can imagine how that number would surge if we could not only look thinner with the procedure, but also power our SUVs. When do we all wake up? The ice caps are melting, the polar bears are dying. Planet Earth is in trouble, and we still burn oil like there's no tomorrow. Which, might be a self fulfilling prophecy... ~Alan Shore "Boston Legal"

Anna, apparently, a quote like that would offend poor folks (remember how people got worked up in a tizzy over K-Feds commercial where he was flipping burgers?) I wouldn't find either offensive, because I'm not ugly, or poor (not rich either), but meh, either way, other peoples evaluations of me don't bother me. And I didn't post this because I have a problem with weight- in fact this isn't mine at all ("Boston Legal"), but because it made sense to me- why don't we use alternatives for oil? There's no legitmate reason in my opinion, unless you're making money off of it, and the majority of us aren't, and that's a piss poor excuse anyway to continue killing the planet.
