Me, late fall: I'm going to plant a vegetable garden
Everyone: winter will kill it!
Me: if it doesn't, will you admit that the climate is changing?
Everyone: Haha sure!
*it is now mid-january*
*I still have happy pea plants in containers and even the collards in the ground are doing just fine*
Everyone: No I won't come join the protest against our local coal power plant there's a musician playing in town I'd really like to see.

them: but i gotta work!
me: *points out how their actions are leading to their developing arthritis in their 20s*
them: CAPITALISM IS THE WORST THING ON THE PLANET
