Hello folks who wonder if porta potties are the equivalent of superman's telephone booth because we all come out feeling more powerful than when we went in,

Who does not want to do good in the world? Who does not want to save the planet? Who does not want to rectify their mistakes?
But we all know that the road to Mickey D's drive-thru is paved with good asphalt.
We all believe we are making a difference and are ready to take one for the team, be it by eating more Mickey D's so friends and family can't eat it and damage their health, or drink more beer so that the companies will eventually run out of supply.
All our actions have consequences, some in the shorter term and some in the long run.
Take the example of plastic bags. You see, humans initially advocated the use of plastic bags to save trees from being cut to make paper bags.

Another classic example is the Canada Goose which made us feel so guilty, we did everything in our power to erase the mistakes of our past.
Below is a resident Canada Goose chomping like it's at a Golden Corral restaurant.

Canada Goose in the past would spend their fall and winter seasons in the USA and fly back to Canada for the spring and summer seasons. They would then raise their family in Canada. The reason they would not spend the winter season in Canada is because of the freezing temperatures along with their stubborness to purchase a good winter jacket. The USA on the other hand offered much warmer temperatures during the winter. The reason they did not stick around for summer in the USA is because they despised the fireworks for 4th of July celebrations and missed eating their poutine with maple syrup.

But like all good things in life, it did not last for long after humans started to hunt them incessantly during their residency in the winter season.

Soon, humans started to realize the numbers of Canada Goose population had dropped significantly. Feeling the same guilt we get after we finish the entire tub of ice cream alone while sitting on our couch, they decided they had to make amendments.
They restricted the incessant hunting and to fix their mistakes brought over some Canada Goose eggs from Canada and raised them in 'Murica.

When these geese hatched, they were kinda confused. They did not understand the reason for flying to and from Canada, also since they never grew up on poutine they never developed a liking for it. In addition, the temperatures over here were more acceptable throughout the year. So some Canada Geese populations became residents and never did the migration. The migratory Canada Geese still made the journey to and from Canada, but the resident Canada Geese enjoyed the 4th of July fireworks over here along with the people feeding them food at all the parks.

Hence if you see any Canada Geese in summer, they are the resident Canada Geese population.
