FIVE REASONS FOR A BIT OF...

erosion

1

When I was 14, I was supposed to have done a project for science at school. I hadn't done it and neither had friend of mine. We came up with the ultimate excuse that we had done a project on erosion but her mother had run over it in the car. Sadly the teacher forgot about us and our excuse was never used.

In the song "Saints" by the Breeders there is a line that goes "It's a lot of face/A lot of crank air/Eroding around here. That just seems pretty cool.

I did geography at school and of all the subjects covered, erosion, particularly coastal erosion, was the most interesting. It kept me coming back for more.

Everything is eroding. Nothing gets any newer or better. My walkman, which has served me well for that last three years has finally eroded to a state of not working. This probably has to do with the number of times I've dropped.

Erosion can be avoided. In Dunedin in the late '70s a whole lot of houses fell down a hill because the bottom of the hill had been chopped away. Planting trees is a good way to avoid erosion. Oh, and The World Needs More Grass (and that can be interpreted in whatever way you like).

But we must remember, it's just a word.
