28. Don't think when you park your car your hands become clean
If we tallied up your oil use since birth, I'm sure the barrel count would surprise you. Oil has seeped (no pun intended) into practically everything we do.

But I applaud vegetarian bike-riders who try to eat locally and don't buy a bunch of useless shit. I aspire to it myself.
