Text for this is to follow, I wanted to share this before the next sale event, even after last week's confession ... :)

I still owe some text on this. But there is not much to add. We established "a linear system and we live on a finite planet and you can not run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely".
I LOVE this. A punchy description of production and mankind's consumerism as a huge machine which converts resources into products. Input from the left: trees, oil, clean water, "resources" of any kind; including people. Output on the right: cars, plastics, iPods (and I had that as a synonym for "thneeds" before watching storyofstuff! :)), along with trash, toxins, nuclear waste - and some serious figures on bank accounts. It's convincing that this will inevitably come to an end. It's nicely shown in this movie. Watch it.
