Hello Ranchers!
I saw the moose lost her rabbit ears today, and has an earth behind her.
Why is that?

Haha I had to google this one. I am not English or American, so my first reaction was, "of course I don't litter, I'm not a cat!".

Ok, noted. I won't litter, cat or human wise.

Why is there a small ufo flying in front of earth and the moose?

That's because the owner of the site believes in aliens.

I think you mean the fly that buzzes around the moose head.

Some Earth Day suggestions:

1. Turn off excess lighting (doesn't help much, but every little bit)

2. Adjust the thermostat to reduce the amount of times the heat/cooling comes on.

3. Avoid driving if you can walk or bicycle

4. Don't litter. Better yet, pick up some of the litter that all the other   s have already dropped

5. Plant a tree. If you can't plant a tree, plant something is a pot. Anything to keep the world cooler and capture CO2, no matter how miniscule. Besides, it helps reduce stress.

6. Shop with an eye towards the environment. Look for stull that lasts, can be repaired, doesn't produce a lot of waste or waste packaging, can be recycled easily. These are sometimes conflicting goals, and sometimes illogical, like when repairing something pollutes more than replacing it, but be mindful, anyway.

7. Be sparing with chemicals.

What can I say. Use some common sense. Don't make a mess of things, try to leave the planet more habitable than you found it, because generations of ignorant people have a lot of damage that needs undoing and the current generation of (often willfully) ignorant people are going to do stupid things, including deliberately trying to make the place only habitable by rats and cockroaches. Make every day a bit of Earth Day. Despite Elon Musk, we're not likely to be able to flee to Mars if we trash this planet, and only a complete idiot thinks that the Earth is too big to make a ruin considering the leverage that modern technology can bring to bear and the amplifying effects of adverse catalytic reactions when we upset the balance of Nature.

And finally, don't buy into the propaganda that a habitable Earth is less important than jobs or the economy. If you're marooned in a wasteland, it doesn't matter if you have a job, and the "job creators" (who outsourced and automated rather than actually creating) aren't going to let you into their little climate-controlled bubble shelters.

Yes precisely!

Did not know they called it a saucer, I thought it was a UFO.

That was very close to the heart response, I see that you are doing your best for the environment <3. You should get a cow for that. Virtual cows produce less methane.

"Flying saucer" or "UFO" both work.

UFO - Unidentified Flying Object - is the highbrow term. "Flying Saucer" is the slang term. Or in Italian, disco volante. I think they like Fliegenplatte in German, but memory is fuzzy and the dictionary isn't close enough.

I think any unidentified flying object is a UFO this can include any streak of light outside the space station. They may not be saucer shaped.

Yes, UFO's have been reported as discs, balls, cigars, and other shapes. Although English being what it is, trust some people to use the word "saucer" anyway.

Anyway, found another way to help the Earth today: Waste less food.

A lot of resources go into producing food, and much of what's produced gets wasted. A report by NPR indicated that delivered meals can actually be more efficient than buying stuff yourself at the market, in large part because people buy "economy" packages and end up throwing out stuff when it doesn't all get used up in time.

Of course, they didn't say anything about those of us who pick out and discard the broccoli.

No, it is so the UFO can chase the fly, but the fly always escapes by going up the moose's nose.
