This Friday 134 million American lemmings with credit cards will clog roads, parking lots, and cash registers, scurrying and reaching and inching along together to take hold of dead stuff.

Most of the objects they’ll burn lots of carbon to acquire travelled to America in huge ships burning lots of carbon (and toxic bunker fuel): manufacturing these objects burnt more carbon.
How else can we spend this Friday?
How did 43% of America’s population end up doing synchronized Anthropocene fire dances on a dangeously warming planet?
