I just got called an ass for saying no thanks to a Greenpeace solicitor. I don't want the whales to die but I do want Greenpeace to fail. Conundrum.

in my opinion greenpeace ranks right around jehovahs witnesses and the orkin man
Watch the Penn and Teller's Bullshit episode on Greenpeace. Even the founder isn't affiliated with them anymore and says Greenpeace is full of it. They used to be about the environment, now they are just a crappy political lobbying group that tells people they're still about the environment. To the people defending it, I'm sorry you got sucked in. You should find something more worthy of your time.
lol I agree - save the whales, but greenpeace sucks ass they are crazy
Gotta love the Simpsons....
But seriously yeah we should care more about the environment
Not a conundrum. This is not an either-or situation. Greenpeace is an organization of wackos who are doing more harm than good to their cause.
they are self-righteous bastards
Exactly my conundrum. I figure the whales can probably look after themselves, but Greenpeace isn't going to self-mock, so that's my job.
SAVE THE WHALES!!!
TRADE THEM FOR VALUABLE PRIZES!!!
Go dred your pubes 8:52
fuckin dirty hippies. trust me there is a giant ocean out there. how the fuck do they know the number of whales that are out there. stupid treehugging lsd tripping hippies
I'm right there with ya. Greenpeace actually does jack shit, I'd say go for the sierra club or environment california.
A paradoxical, insoluble, or difficult problem; a dilemma:
Sounds like a conundrum to me.
im with you... all the way.
Please tell me this was in Gtown of DC... I swear everyday at lunch this exact scenario happens to me. They're worse then the "demanding panhandlers" that are around here. I prefer them to G-peace solicitors - which, I guess, means I'd rather have Earth implode and be left homeless then stop it from imploding in the first place.
226am - "STOP LEARNING!! STOP GATHERING INFORMATION! Don't trust anyone over thirty, and don't listen to people who have gained life experience. Think in a VACUUM!! "Schooling" taught you to never "think" but it's, well, it's actually a good thing to do, THINKING!! IT really, really is!!!!!
come on dudes. i just got home from a long ass day of canvassing for green peace. were not all dicks. in fact i really dont know of anyone who would call someone an ass for saying "no thanks" maybe it was their first week. its our job to be persistent. so cut us some slack if you see us out there. its not easy to be told fuck off my strangers on a daily basis when youre just doing your job which is something you believe in and trying to create a difference.
2:26 is right, even one of the co-founders says that greenpeace is now full of shit. and 2:26 name one thing that greenpeace has done in the last 10 years that has actually helped anyone or anything
who are you and can we get married?
8:32 - EXACTLY... it's your JOB. But if we don't VOLUNTEER than *we* are the bad guys? Please.
Hahaha ugh I hate greenpeace
those opposing greenpeace or any group fighting for social change needs to seriously open their eyes, stop listening to their parents and fox news, turn off the tv, and think for once. i know your schooling taught you not too, but it's actually a good thing to do.
shoulda decked that homo, greenpeice of shit
Agreed, cut them some slack! Greenpeace is a great nonprofit that does a lot of great things on a daily basis, and the canvassers help so much! The people who work for Greenpeace are well educated and quite clean to boot, by the way, and their campaigns are not only focused on whaling.
Ya, I've been approached w/ this question like twenty times. "Do you have five minutes for the environment today?" And when I say sorry I'm in a hurry they get all pissed. Like if I happen to be in a hurry, I hate and am personally destroying the environment.
They're all "If you don't also throw your entire existence into the cause that is important to ME, you're obviously evil"
"Nuke the whales? You can't possibly mean that!"
"...Gotta nuke somethin'."
I am an enviromental and sustainable engineering major and we all consider greenpeace an actual detriment to the environmental cause. If you want to make a difference do something that actually helps the environment instead of being so clueless and down right obnoxious. I actually wrote an entire term paper on how greenpeace is doing the opposite of helping
That's not actually a conundrum, just FYI
8:52 that's because your job sucks balls. You morons enjoy your "environmental internship". Way to fall for that sh*t... Please don't bug me at the metro tomorrow!
shouldnt greenpeace be busy depriving impoverished people in the third world working opportunities? err excuse me "protecting the enviroment"
I only use virgin-tree toilet paper and tissues, they feel better when I smear poop and snot on them. Greenpeace wouldnt be happy unless we were all living in thatch roof huts eating our own shit and paying them to help us do it. Im going to buy gas and Kimberly Clark products right now.
Whenever I see these people I always pretend to be talking to someone on my cell phone...
Poor Orkin Man....He doesn't deserve to be lumped in that shit category
I can't say enough horrible things about greenpeace. Food for thought how much of donations pay for those kids and their T-shirts to stand in front of places harrassing. People
fuck the whales!
thats what i said :)
Dumb slut. Greepeace does way more good and helpful things than your skank as will ever do. Why wish for them to fail just because one guy was a douche to you? Bitch.
No, I don't think it is a conundrum.
