    Just Ian stirring the pot. Started off complaining about prices, but that didn't work. So he brought up cap & trade.

    Sprinkle liberally with UFO's, aliens, and a (strangely enough, unrelated) excerpt from Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

    And of course, we should get rid of the States and just let the Feds run everything.

    You know... the usual.

    It's important we deal with these issues here so that plumbers are educated on the facts when i) they interact with clients; and, ii) interact with themselves.

    I dream of the day a plumber in Florida visits a client and they start chatting about how much of a wonderful job the Federal Government is doing.

    Rather than just complaining about it.

    I never saw the movie - grew up with a local college radio station replaying the original radio show. Own all five books in the trilogy...

    Changing to one of the other topics - just came across this:


    Made me think of this thread.

    A little birdie told me that all the blue areas on the map at this link are in trouble when all the polar ice and glaciers melt...
    Looks Like I'm okay on the high ground and As I become oceanfront property my property values should do well...
    Sounds good to me...:D


    By the way it looks like London is joining Atlantis...:eek:

    Well I'm not sure where you came up with all that info but now you need to show how it was scientifically proved and scientificaly show that nothing else could have possibly caused it...

    that is if you don't just want all that info to be just an opinion...

    I am sure you are well aware opinions are meaningless...even if millions or billions of people have the same one...

    It was inaccurate "opinions" that had Millions of the "experts" that thought the world was flat...or thought "blood letting" was the way to go...Etc., Etc.....

    True science proved them to be wrong...

    So lets see the science behind the opinion....the onus is on you...

    BTW...the temp is changing on many of the other planets by the same amount the earth seems to be also so you need to show that the earths temp is not changing from the same thing that is causing them to change...you could start with that one...


    You could start with this one to see it it could/might be causing Climate Change...



    I don't think you are one of the kind of people who think "we just need to do something" even if you dont know if that "something" will do anything...

  13. talking to cows


    I am beginning to understand the problem you are having
    with Americans, if it dont affect me, then its not a problem....

    It makes me wonder sometimes when half the herd of cows get
    shipped off to the slaughter house to become hamburger.........
    what do they talk about on the long ride??

    and I wonder what the other half that is left behind think??
    glad it wasnt me??

    alien abduction???

    Their opinions as to where they are going...of course...but

    since none of them have ever been there before they are

    always wrong....:p
  15. cass you are right

    they do taset good , dont they???

    makes you wonder if the ones that are left behind justify the sudden disaperance
    of their freinds to another bunch of aliens wanting to do experiments on them???
