under the weather

There’s been a lot of people complaining about global warming in the past few years.  But there’s another aspect of the weather that doesn’t get much press, despite it affecting almost everyone.

Today I’m feeling under the weather.  That means I’m sick, I have a cold.  Since people say that is being “under the weather”, then obviously it’s the weather’s fault.  So why hasn’t anyone put forth a global campaign to destroy this weather oppression?

While someone figures out how to stop it, I think we should consider an idea I had a while back: recycling boogers.  I know, that’s thinking way outside the box and it’s gross, but boogers and snot are organic so they might be carbon-based, and there’s an endless supply from colds and allergies.  If someone could figure this out, they’d easily make billions of dollars…

Here’s some thinking “outside the box” for you…

If a company could figure out how to recycle boogers for some type of production, they could have an endless supply, and it would be very affordable.  They’re all organic, so they’re good for the environment.   And they’re naturally remade every day, all over the world.  And if people got paid at all for their contributions, they’d be compensated more when they have a runny nose, like from allergies or a cold or just a general abundance of snot.  So it would make those times a little easier to bear.

I wonder why no one has thought of this before?
