Alabama protecting the environment:

http://www.al.com/ne...cart_river_home

On September 7, 2016 an inspector with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management found something was wrong with Buck Creek, a tributary of the Cahaba River near Alabaster.

The inspector was following up on a citizen complaint about pollution of the creek near Carmeuse Lime and Stone's Longview facility in Saginaw, just off U.S. Highway 31, and found a murky white creek with water that looked like Milk of Magnesia and had a pH around the same level.

There was aquatic life observed upstream of the Carmeuse facility, the inspector noted. Downstream there was none.

The inspector took water samples from Buck Creek registering 11.3 and 12.05 on the pH scale, which measures the acidity or alkalinity of liquids from 0 to 14. Milk of Magnesia, an alkaline substance used to neutralize excess stomach acid, has a pH of 10.3. Ammonia has a pH around 11.6 and household bleach is about 12.6.

Alabama water quality standards specify that discharges should not raise pH above 8.5, or more than one unit above normal. Upstream of the facility that day, ADEM inspectors found Buck Creek had a pH of 7.24.

The total fine to Carmeuse -- for removing all observable living things from a section of the creek and raising the pH of the creek water to levels comparable to household cleaning products -- was $32,000

Today is my birthday, dammit.

This is the one day all year when we are able to openly talk conspiracies without fear of reprisal from the board.

First, Happy Birthday, Winter.

Second, if you're altering or self-editing your posts out of "fear of reprisal from the board", you're doing it wrong.

Clearly, I care little for reprisal, or wouldn't post the way I do :)

So, Building 7.......pretty wacky, smoking gun type shit, right?

LOL...no.

You know, I thought about you last night, when I was watching a piece on the upcoming 45th anniversary of Apollo 17, the last time any Astronauts have left low earth orbit. let alone flew to the moon. The showed some pictures of the various moon missions. I thought, "I wonder if Winter thinks those pictures are real, or if they were shot on a Hollywood stage?"

There's at least 10 possibilities for Apollo, IMO, and the more I read and more artifacts I collect, the less I know for sure.

I'm just finishing Neil Armstrong's authorized biography. It's as epic as he is robotic.

My guess is that Apollo was probably a mix of both.

Happy birthday, feel free to post about the wackiest you can think of.

Just for your birthday the ISS is making evening passes by Pittsburgh!

Some people were posting about the anniversary of the first moon landing on a town Facebook group. I was tempted to respond about how cool it is that movie studios were able to create that footage and how far they have come but figured my wife would frown on it.

You believe Apollo 18 ran into aliens right? Wouldn't we have had to land on the moon eventually. Fake to keep kennedys promise?

I don't think there was an Apollo 18, as that is usually considered the Apollo-Soyuz Test Flight.

But Apollos 19 and 20 blow my fucking mind.

The Clash made simple, relatively shitty music sound awesome.

I love watching people smoke long cigarettes. I have these very powerful Asian neighbors that I'm pretty sure are small arms dealers.

They are so rich that when they drive their Escalades by my house, they let these long Marlboros just hang limply from their lips. They are so rich that they don't even give a shit. Total baller move.
