Hi Dinga.
I fixed the link in that. You missed a bit... 😉

A train full of excrement stranded for two months in a little town that can't defend itself. Brilliant....

Milwaukee has been selling theirs as fertilizer. You can't use that stuff to human consumable foods. Drug content, from what I understand. Cocaine, heroin, viagra...

The train thing.... hhmmm. Kinda matches the dozens of trains the U.S. gov. keeps moving across the country, loaded with a shit ton (see what I did there?) of nuclear waste because there's nowhere to put it.

New York really has a big problem getting rid of their shit. Way back when I was in WV some "environmental" company there bought an abandoned strip mine in the county to the east of the county where we lived.

Were going to bring in, not shit, but trash because they have no landfill space left and people are tired of trash washing up on the beaches so they are limited as to what they can just dump.

That County approved this thing and then the people there got a bit pissed and forced a county wide vote on it.

Company spent $10 million advocating that landfill ahead of the vote. Greatest thing since pockets in shirts. High paying jobs!!!!

Very poor county and the folks opposing it spent all of about $6000. Raised that mainly at one fund raising event where they had some local musicians come in and play.

One band was 2 Stewed 4 You. I knew the guys in it. Really crazy bunch. Kind of a Blue Grass Jug Band. A couple were people I knew quite well. They did a great rap song at that event. Bring in the Trash - We need the Cash.

Final vote came in and wasn't even close. Over 70% opposed.

Probably the same company that runs the shit train. They were going to run 3 trains to that land fill and reopen the strip mine and haul the coal back to New York on the returning trains.

Recreational drugs are the least of it. Antibiotics, for instance, is one of the real concerns.

Well, yeah. I just figured I'd rattle off the fun ones.

Every time I hear strip mine, it puts thoughts in my head. Women getting nekkid. And there was this cave.
