    How can an asbestos removal company be green? You put the stuff in bags and send it to the landfill. I would think you'd be better playing off people's sense of security. Like, Safer Asbestos Removal, or something.

    And, Damn, I just discovered this Arpenteur anorak in Arpin wool, and the only place I can find it (Kafka) is sold out in my size.

    I wouldn't just take it to the landfill, it needs to be dealt with correctly, which I assume is the green part or not so green.

    MagO's are well on their way to becoming the asbestos of the 2100st century, so It would be an idea to add that in.

    Exactly, the company removes the Asbestos or Asbestos like hazardous waste and disposes of it in an environmentally conscious way.

    "Allowed"!!?? I don't get jobs where people don't chose what to wear according to (obvious) social standards and need some rule book. Well outside of say places where you need specific equipment like a factory.

    I just buy Uniqlo crew neck white tees one size up and they look fine. I don't like designer tees but those LA tees might be something you can check out in person.

    I thought the verdict was that Real Mccoys t-shirts are the best.

    This looks fungal/bacterial to me and not aphid frass, but if it is aphids, check the plant and you should be able to see them. To deal with aphids just mix like 2 teaspoons of mild detergent (I use castille soap) and shake it up real good until it's bubbly and spray it on those aphid fucks to send them to aphid fuckin hell. also be any other number of tiny bug fucks that ruin your plants (e.g. thrips) but mild soapy water will work on all them. does that black shit rub off?

    If it's bacterial/fungal, there's not much you can do. Generally once plants show symptoms of infection they're too far to save. I'd suggest removing infected leaves and cutting back on the water; the biggest problem I see with people who own plants is that they overwater. Although hibiscus enjoy lots of watering in warm weather, they generally don't need to be watered too often once the weather cools down, and during cool weather only water your hibiscus once the top inch of the soil is dry. Water only the soil and try not to splash on leaves, as water is the biggest vector for disease in plants.

    However, there are some benign diseases that produce black spots on plants, so it may be completely OK.

    all this to say I really don't know but I hope it helps. it's really hard diagnosing plant problems through the internet

    RFT: I keep getting told that I look like I belong in an LL BEAN catalog. I have to constantly correct them and say that they're more likely to find me in an Engineered Garments lookbook or Cosmic Wonder avant-garde art video. Don't people realize the quality of my clothing? The hidden details? Does no one fucking see the gussets? The fucking gussets, people!

    LL Bean slippers are dope tho

    you could buy some black canvas/cotton duck, and some foam, and find a tailor who will take the job on. (maybe talk to the tailor first about those materials)
