• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hi MM and all,

Any of you who have passed a high school chemestry course know that every reaction has it's limitations, you don't get something for nothing. Recycling waste for water is nothing new, they still have to dispose of the solids and now they have to deal with more waste of a different kind as well. Until we get Star Trek transporter technology upon which the transformation of matter from interstellar hydrogen and recycling of waste is based they'll just have to get "Earl Grey, hot" from Earth and send waste back home.

Meanwhile they never mention the problems with flatulence in a space suit.

Ground control to Major Tom,

Uh MM, what is the main "ingeredient" in pee pee? (;->)

Now here's a gross-out for you. Reflect on the fact that Earth recycles everything, you're drinking, eating and breathing everything that came before and leaving recyclables for future generations. Ah yes, the devil's in the details! Just think, if it weren't for all that dino pee you'd be awfully thirsty.

Here's a REAL gross-out for those in northern and central NJ who get water from Elizabethtown, the largest water company in the state. The intake crib is just above the tidal reaches of the Raritan River, also the largest in the state. Think of all the branches and tributaries and where they are, lots of farmland (meaning lots of cattle) dotted with cities each having a sewage disposal plant discharging into the river. It is said that no matter how bad you have it there is somebody worse off than you. Arlo Guthrie raised the question "What about the last guy? Ain't nobody got it worse than him." so remember that intake crib, YOU'RE that last guy!

"Raise your glass to the hard working people, raise your glass to the salt of the Earth." Now think of this old drinking song in a new context, think of what went into the making of that joy juice and where the water in that glass of Bud came from, particularly if it came from Newark NJ.

Jersey is a wonderful place to live, don't get me wrong. Just the same I'm movin' to Montana soon, gonna be a dental floss tycoon. (Thanks for the inspiration Frank.)
