At the bottom of each thread, we can put banners or catch phrases. At CodeRanch it seems that the catch phrases help to get people's attention as they click on them. Last fall, Paul started doing it here at permies, but it did not work as well. The idea is that people who don't know anything about permaculture will find permies through google looking for something else, they will read the thread and see that little catch phrase and get curious, click on the link, end up reading another thread and slowly learn about permaculture.

So what I am looking for here are suggestions on catch phrases for the hugelkultur article.

Here is the list:

Have you looked at paul's devious plots on world domination?

What about diatomaceous earth ?

Consider Paul's rocket stove mass heater .

Did you see how Paul cut 87% off of his electric heat bill with 82 watts of micro heaters ?

Have you listened to the permaculture podcast yet?

Paul shows that with a little knowledge, a cast iron pan can be non-stick and last a lifetime .

Have you seen Paul's rant on CFLs ?

For women only: tips for peeing outside without the mess.

Check out Paul's last coffee maker.

After burning through the drip stuff and the french press stuff, Paul has the last, ever, coffee maker. Better living through buying less crap.

I agree. Here's the link: food forest dvd

Maybe a very subtle image beside those phrases would catch the attention more.

"You can't have huge radishes without huge-lkultur"

I think it is time to go to bed.
 
ice is for people that are not already cool. Chill with this tiny ad:
A rocket mass heater is the most sustainable way to heat a conventional home
