i was bashing the north strictly for the fact that the majority of people there don't like to pick up trash. That is all. Walk around the streets in a Northern City, and compare it to a city of similar population size and population density as a city in other areas of the country. Im sorry to bring on the hate guys, but sometimes the only thing that can wake people up is a slap in the face. Im not saying you as surfers don't pick up trash, I'm just saying unless the area of the country where I spent the first 18 years of my life (ie new england) learns to clean up their game, theres gonna be a lot more water up there and a lot less people according to the sea level inundation projections I have done on ARCGIS programs.
So next time you see a guy throw a cig on the ground, even if hes bigger and meaner then you, tell him to pick it up. Or mother nature won't be happy.
all things must be balanced, and when the world is out of balance, the forces of nature correct it. Ever seen an evolutionary time line on a geographic time scale? Mass extinctions produce evolution in quick bursts (the predominant theory proposed by scientists as of now) opposed to the linear, gradual process we learned about in grade school. May God Help Us All.
Wow, all this because of an ancient thread from 3 or more years ago?
But, I guess the point is the same--beach badges apparently still suck.
I'm not sure any region of this country can seriously claim the country would cease to exist without them....
Beach tag season is mid june to labor day at least on LBI. I find the easiest way to get by the badge hasslers is to say your mom/gf/whoever has it on her bag and then point to a random person across the beach, most are to lazy or could careless to take the conversation any further, and if they say something, just be like hold on, I ll go get it..and then just walk down the beach...
Trevolution, you are the craziest mix of naivety, awareness, ignorance, education, and hypocrisy I've witnessed on here. Some good stand-alone ideas and statements, but the word vomit just keeps spewing like some poorly written computer program designed to debate. I'm fascinated.
Beach badges suck, but I appreciate well maintained beaches. The maintenance is a cruel necessity when accommodating the volume of tourists that NJ beaches do.
