It’s grass, therefore I mow. It’s plastic, therefore I suck

This school has an artificial grass playing field, it doesn’t need mowing but it does need vaccuuming occassionally.

I had loads of freetime one day and it was sunny, so I decided to walk around on it. I touched the soccer goal box, which was metal, I received a wicked static shock. Who would have thought that walking on artifical grass was tant amount to rubbing two woollen sweaters together.

  1. To quote the maybe apocrophyl American professional footballer of the 1970s when astroturf was first introduced to sport stadiums…
    Journalist: “What do you think of astroturf as a replacement for grass?”
    Footballer (scratching head): “I don’t know. I’ve never smoked astroturf.”

  2. This astroturf is not bad. The plastic padding just outside the main building of the school is made from recycled tyes. It smells a bit when they get hot.
