Tarzan's Housekeeping Philosophy

To Tarzan they were bones - just bones. He did not need them, for there was no meat left upon them, and they were not in his way, for he knew no necessity for a bed, and a skeleton on the floor he could easily step over.
- from Jungle Tales of Tarzan

Wise is Tarzan, mighty hunter, mighty fighter! Just because there's some debris on the floor doesn't mean you have to pick it up, especially if it's not harming anything. Pragmatic is Tarzan, mighty philosopher!

And yet when I attempt to emulate Tarzan, my she objects, for we do not live in Tarzan's wild and beautiful jungle. Alas.
