this article says a lot about one of the most screwed up things about capitalism -- its accelerated time frame... things in the business world need to move move move, so we live in airconditioned environments instead of outdoors, and hyperventilate instead of takin' it slow. Let's abolish business, and take siestas. How about a general strike, every business day, from 1 to 3 pm, accompanied by a mass naptime?

It will be a vicious circle -- the more air conditioning is consumed, the more fossil fuels are burned, thus the hotter the weather will get, increasing the demand for air conditioning... by the way, this blog is being typed from a non-air-conditioned room, and it's quite hot in here even though it's almost 11pm...
