A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

SIX WORD » PLANET

More Ethanol means more starving children

by MeadowsMike on August 15, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


40 percent of our corn harvest is used for fuel instead of food. When demand for corn increases, the price of corn and all other food goes up. Not just in the USA - but globally. All the socialist do-gooders in the world haven't yet repealed the law of supply and demand.

Starving Children in Somalia don't give a $%&# about your Prius, your bio-diesel, or your good intentions.

7 Bushels of corn can produce enough calories to support a woman or adolescent for a year.

Or 7 Bushels of corn can make 20 gallons of ethanol.

Every time you fill your tank with bio-fuel, a woman starves to death.

How's that for good intentions?
