# Consuming is like being in marshland, you drown.
If there's something like "productive" (you're producing) then there should be something like "consumptive" (you're consuming). Actually, consuming sounds like the German "Sumpf" which means "swamp". That's what consumption actually is: The more you consume the more you drown, just like you're drowning the more time you spend in marshland.
