Bio-diesel pump. God bless America.

The monitor came off today around noon. I still have red circles on my skin from the adhesive but I feel human again. I went to the hospital after work to drop it off. It was a pretty good day; we had a meeting for about an hour and a half with bagels, then these two girls from a club down the street stopped by around noon with a bucket of peanuts, candy, coupons, and beer and asked us to consider their place for our next office event. The peanuts were tobasco peanuts, and they were mighty tasty.

Woah. I know that bio-diesel crops sometimes displace food crops, but this is an economic problem, rather than an environmental problem.

Bio-diesel is no more an environmental hazard than regular diesel, and, insomuch as biodiesel is made from waste products of food production (chicken fat, french-fry grease, etc.) bio-diesel provides an environmental benefit.
