Just out of curiosity, have Bezos and Musk done anything at all for our world?

And at a fraction of the cost. Give this man a Twitter account.

It will always be Twitter. X==porn

Dude heard someone say: “society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit” and took it as a personal challenge.

Shit, he may have set the record for most shade thrown by any individual…

The older I get, the less payback I care about when I plant something. I'm trying to get some trees for my yard that will last after I'm gone.

For heaven's sake, don't plant them in South Carolina. Apparently, people here subscribe to the "less is more" concept where trees are concerned. I've lived here for five years, and my uncle, the owner of the rentals I currently live in, and the owner of the wooded pond down the street have all decided lawn is superior to trees, and cut ALL of them on these three properties down. The pond guy is even going beyond clear-cutting... he's burning the remaining plants once the trees are gone. The pond is now mostly mud, because we've had two days of heavy rain, and there's nothing there to catch the run-off now.

And, again - this is South Carolina. Summers here are brutal and where we had shade to keep our unit cool when we moved in, we now have an oven for 10 months out of the year.

If only we had billionaires who did these things

u/Hahawney 27d ago

Or even billionaires who read things such as this, and paid the person a few measly millions.

I read a book in my French class about a guy who did something similar, but i think he was fake

Tremendous feat. Where is the forest? Is it to be logged in the future?

Man with a picture of a desert he destroyed.

u/My_useless_alt 28d ago

In most cases, that "desert" is actually a forest that had been logged a few years previous then abandoned
