Good thing we're not doing much to reduce human carbon emissions. It means we'll kill off the human race even faster.

Not just any fart. A Russian fart.  Just like 2017 started.

"Look around at the environment we live in. Carbon dioxide, fluorocarbons, and methane have increased since 1958. Earth is being acclimatized. They are turning our atmosphere into their atmosphere."

Where is Rowdy Roddy Piper when we need him.

This is the way the world ends.  Not with a bang, but with a rip.

Just engineer a bunch of giant matches.

CH4 + 2O2 => CO2 + 2H2O

And CO2is a less effective greenhouse gas than methane, so it'll help some.

Oh, but do make sure you stand back...waaaaaay back.

Of course it is.

Every year my wife's extended family has a get-together that starts shortly before Christmas eve and runs to New Years Day, and has a theme that was agreed upon on the last day of the previous years 'party'.  This years (admittedly pre-Covid) family reunion get togethers planned theme was to include a Mexican food theme.

In the days leading up to NYE each family was to have a day where they prepared the meals using whatever recipes they found and enjoyed during the year.  So, as the extended family includes several vegetarians and 2 STRICT VEGANS (Who are constantly trying to convert the whole family to their 'chosen lifestyle'), we all have to make allowances for them and their 'dietary restrictions'.  From conversations with other family members, most of the dishes that were going to be prepared for this "Week of Mexican Culinary delight" (Which, don't forget, is Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) was going to feature refried beans and other high flatulence producing foods in some form or another.

Beans.  Lots of Beans.  Being eaten by 23 adults and 7 children of various ages.

Add in the beer that is always being consumed, as well as the warm pretzels with Jalapeno laden cheese, and this will be a week to remember.

Luckily no one smokes, because one lit match or lighter and the whole place would go up in a fireball that could probably be seen for dozens of miles.

And, if your wondering, The dishes I was planning on making were:
Breakfast: Sausage/Egg/Cheese/Salsa burritos
Lunch: Pulled pork, chicken or ground beef tacos/burritos with some creamy coleslaw put on top, and
Dinner: Steak, Chicken and Shrimp Fajitas, done in the classic (or at least what my local favorite Mexican restaurant El Senorial calls classic) style.  Served with refried beans, chicken fried rice and multiple heat levels of salsa.

And what am I planning for the vegans seeing as everything will be fried up together using grass fed cows milk butter, so even the vegetables will be considered evil by them?  Store bought bags of salad, with lots of bean sprouts.

That week was to be a gas producer, that's for sure.
