There’s always the lovable trash panda.

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

I wish they'd take everything back

I came to a stop sign and a skanky tweaker chick in a tube top climbed out of the brush and propositioned me.  She looked like she didn't have any teeth so I counted that as a plus.

Unfortunately with our almost complete lack of ability to manufacture anything domestically that would be quite a disaster. 
 I agree with you, but it would need to be a gradual transition for us to be able to start producing locally again.

Not to get political in a non political thread but sometimes it takes a disaster to fully grasp the errors of our ways.

Bamboo is an indoor decorative thing in this part of the world but it makes me wonder if dry ice or liquid nitrogen would do a quick kill on it.

Bad experiences come from poor decisions. So do good stories.

This guy says to let the shoots get to full height and throw out branches, then cut them all down before they can start photo synthesis and get energy.  It may take a few seasons but you will eventually deplete the rhizome of energy

I went to one of the local farm chemical supplier and told them what I had. He mixed up a gallon of what used to be called atrazine. He told me to mix it 16oz to a gallon of water and to add half cup of veg oil to the mix. Constantly agitate the sprayer while using the sprayer and heavy coat the patch. The oil would help it stay in contact with the plant while it started to work. Not to mow it  for 10 days to 2 wks. I asked about covering it. Go ahead won't hurt keep some of the moisture from getting to it. He said forget about seeding it for 4 years. Wait for the atrazine to leach out.

Interesting, while atrazine is some potent stuff, it was created to control weeds in corn.
Usually applied by incorpation during tillage.
Its not used much (here) now.

Sounds like you have a solution (no pun intended).
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Went to the cabin Fri and Sat. I sprayed a whole gallon on the spot. It was pretty well drenched then covered most of it with a cheap tarp from harbor freight. We'll see how it works out.
