    i think about this quite a bit too....sometimes i agree, other times i wonder about all the money being taken out of the budget that could be going to better shit... like proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

    less of the taxpayers, shopkeepers, homeowners, etc. money would be spent on cleaning up these shitty cities, the pigs would be able to spend less money and time chasing teenagers and more fighting real problems, Krylon/Rusto would still be making paint for its appropriate use, bored kids in class would probably spend less time tagging on their binders and more time staring at girls, throwing paper airplanes, or whatever the fuck. if graffiti suddenly vanished, it wouldnt affect society as a whole. itd be gay tho.

    hmm... i've pondered this before.

    do you really believe that krylon would lower it's pigment matter in the paint, thus making it less thick and less coverage, in a direct effect to deliberately hinder us, the writers? or to make a bigger profit by charging the same per can and putting less in?

    and rustoleum with the stutter... well i don't know about that.

    don't fool yourself. Rusto/Krylon would be making a hell of a lot more money along with hardware stores across the world. But in the grand scheme of things is graffiti that big of a deal? Bush spends 90 Billion on an unnessesary war with no end in sight, murders innocent people with careless application of the death penalty through sloppy evidence and corrupt systems, and sends off our nations youth to die and we're still preoccupied with finding a bunch of teenagers putting their art on walls with out permission.

    Littering Also Creates Jobs

    If we all join together and litter there will be more jobs for trashmen.

    If we intentionally set fires, they will be more money for the firefighters.

    If we breed more criminals one day they might take over..
