These Atheists Have a Highway, Too!

The Idaho Atheists weren’t the only ones who did some highway cleanup over the weekend!

The Capital Region Atheists & Agnostics did the same thing in New York:

Things we learned today, as said on Facebook by Rick, the event’s organizer:

  • Apparently, high proportions of the nation’s dwindling number of smokers are drawn, irresistibly, to Cohoes, NY, much in the way that visionaries flocked to Devil’s Tower in Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
  • Litterers exhibit a strong preference for Budweiser, Red Bull, Five Hour Energy and Newports.
  • Unlike love, Styrofoam is forever.

See? Atheists have plenty of useful things to do on a Sunday. Church doesn’t have to be on the list.

(Thanks to Mike for the link!)

    No one can resist Cohoes. How could you; it’s got the best town hall ever (okay, maybe)

    I bet you guys have a lot of NYS political employees either among your ranks or as sympathizers. Nice work.

    Well, if we’re highlighting atheists doing highway cleanups, on May 29 Rochester Area FreeThinkers (RAFT) of Rochester, MN did some cleanup on I90.

    I delight in thinking of every Christian’s reaction as they drive past that sign…I wonder if it “offends” them. Any other sign that dares mention atheists exist seems to.

    Litterers exhibit a strong preference for Budweiser, Red Bull, Five Hour Energy and Newports.

    I noticed the same thing every Green-Up Day. Lots of Budwiese and Labatt’s Blue cans, Gallo wine and Mr. Boston Schnapps bottles and McD and BK wrappers. I’ve only ever found one microbrew bottle (A Long Trail Ale).

    Applying the supposition of: low class people drink Bud; higher class people drink microbrews. Thus, you have my Elitist Class Theory of Littering: Low class people are giant, uncaring litterbugs. (BTW, I mean class not strictly in the monetary sense. You can be poor and high class)
