## Save the Planet, Eat Your Dog942

R3d M3rcury writes "New Zealand's Dominion Post reports on a new book just released, Time to Eat the Dog: The real guide to sustainable living. In this book, they compare the environmental footprint of our housepets to other things that we own. Like that German Shepherd? It consumes more resources than two Toyota SUVs. Cats are a little less than a Volkswagen Golf. Two hamsters are about the same as a plasma TV. Their suggestions? Chickens, rabbits, and pigs. But only if you eat them."

Please someone contact them about putting out a firefox plugin. The spammers already have these things figured out (man in the middle attacks described further down in the comments) and I just want to get into my bank account and forums without having to take my glasses off, get about an inch away from the monitor and then have to try two or three times before getting one that's legible. Thankfully I got image-zoom on here so I haven't had to do the first two steps in a while. It's only a matter of time before they start using flash for these things though and then it's back to practically felching the monitor just to read the stupid things.

As an aside I handn't logged in yet to post and the person in the next cube over tells me the captchkacinno thing for this particular comment was "accuracy". Funny.
