    Simple, use recycled aluminum like we did, and no, I have not a clue how
    many beer cans - but since half of it is underground, I really don't care.

    Unfortunately, your post indicates a complete disconnect from the
    long-term reality of the current subject - which is completely off topic
    for this forum - otherwise I'd be happy to help you fill in your blanks
    so you wouldn't come off sounding like Bush Jr. Jr.

    That's the answer. Cut down a 1000 year old redwood so some jackass can have
    a redwood deck. Sure trees grow back if they are replanted. The old ones
    won't if jackasses keep cutting them down.

    Personally I think all of the beer sucking, pot bellied human trash can do
    without a redwood deck.

    Lots of folks are figuring out that synthetic decks look nice and don't
    warp, discolor, or rot. We're going to put one in, and I can tell you I
    won't miss treating it (don't have to), repairing it, and etc.

  15. Obviously that's an objective view. I notice that they ask for
    readers to send them reports of negative experiences with the Nikon
    D70 -- but, apparently, only negative reports are needed. So if a
    million people like the camera and one person hates it, they're just
    interested in the one.

    Oh, and I love the bit about the guy from Newsday who claims that a
    Sony is superior in lens quality. But with the Nikon, the lens comes
    off, so the lens can be better or worse, depending on which one
    somebody has on the camera. Duh.

  16. That isn't close to being true. First, aluminum, iron, and
    concrete can easily take the place of almost anything in
    house construction. Almost no wood is used in modern
    commercial buildings. And many houses are going to steel
    studs and other non-wood parts.

    As for trees being not exhaustible, you may want to look at
    those parts of the world that supported larger populations
    for a long time and note the lack of forests. Vast areas of
    the earth were denuded of trees hundreds and 10s of hundreds
    of years ago and continue to be treeless.

    On second thought, what kind of drugs are you on? I don't expect you to
    share so how much for a half ounce?

    You mean the plastic like wood? My hot tub side is made from that stuff.
    Very impressive. I have also seen fences made from it. Good idea too since
    you don't have to paint. Also rot and termites are of no concern. The minute
    they start eating plastic we have a new way to recycle! :)
