Beards forbidden

The government of Isesaki (a Japanese city) has forbidden having a beard to all the government employees in the city. They say that it will help the environment. If the people has beard then they will use the air conditioner more and then there will be more pollution; if people doesn’t have a beard then they are not so hot and they don’t need to put the AC so often…

    And the point of everything is to make people think more about ECO, not to react to the stupid rule itself

    And did they quantified if it’s more eco-friendly the amount of electricity you save with this rule or the amount of water that you save by not shaving?. Just, a thought.

    Therefore all people, men and women should be bald thereby reducing the need for AC even more. Hurray for progress!

    on pourrait en rire si ce n’était pas si ridicule…
    et il y a des gens qui passent leur temps à écrire des rapports sur des sujets aussi… stupides ?

    there would be laughable if it were not so ridiculous …
    and there are people who spend their time writing reports on topics as … stupid?
    heartbreaking …

    Are YOU the stupidest ever? The reason for this news is to make people react to ECO, not the RULE…

    which worked just fine because we are talking about eco right now.

    I don’t think so Klour. It’s really a dumb rule and beard have really little to do with being ECO.
