Do you laugh or cry at this?

Wow - I laugh sadly. This person is either clueless, or lives with some serious blinders. Either way, engaging them in any type of dialogue would most likely be fruitless. Good luck with that one

That was a well needed chuckle !

That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen in print. And hilarious. Was this from a local paper?

It's from a newspaper in Australia.

I've seen that in several places. Mostly I laugh. It just goes to show how out of touch people are.

It's sad. Very sad.

It's also right up there with grown adults who can't even build a fire in their fireplace/woodstove. We had a neighbor who had to ask my father to show him how to build a fire so they could use the woodstove when the power had gone out.

When civilization comes to a grinding halt, I'll be thankful that at least *I* would know how to survive without a grocery store.

Often these kind of comments, that get people all fired up and critical of how foolish that person was, were made by some smartass with a sense of humor.

Remember all the backlash to Bonsai Kittens?

Oh...oh my. Such ignorance hurts sometimes. It's sort of like the people who think developing farmland for houses is perfectly fine "since we can just get the food at the grocery store." Sadly, they don't seem to understand that food doesn't originate in the grocery store. It actually comes from somewhere.
