Re: no discharge zones

I know this thread has been quite for a while but I was reading the June 2012 Readers Digest and on page 156 (pic 154) was a story about Portland OR. draining an 8 million gallon reservoir because a young boy took a leak in it. As funny as we are tring to make the regulations seem does anyone else think this is overkill? Can the goverment waste any more money in the name of safty. And if this water was so dangerios didn't they just add this problem to the pacific ocean when they drained the reservoir. Will the UN be asking the portland water atthority to drain the ocean next to clean up this major discharge

Let's not forget, regardless of the end result there is a difference between peeing in the pool and peeing into the pool

OK, just to be clear, I agree with some of your thoughts, but the pool chemical thing? C'mon....

Re: no discharge zones

Interesting. I just heard on talk radio today that there are approximately 5,000 lobbyist in Washington, DC on any given day. What is equally amazing is it's a tossup between the tidal Potomac and Susquehanna rivers as to which is the most polluted. When I was a reporter in DC I once saw a sign in a restroom on the Virginia side of the Potomac that said "Be sure to flush the toilets, Arlington needs the drinking water." Wanna' take bets who is the largest consumer of bottled water in the Nation's Capital?

Cheers,

Re: no discharge zones

That's it. I simply cannot refrain from posting this any longer:

To pee or not to pee– that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to kind one's johnson sheathed or suffer
The slings and arrows of women pointing and laughing at it's insignificance,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles and penal code violations
And, by opposing, end them, or face a stiff $270 fine, and be listed as a sexual predator.
To die, to sleep No more – and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural shocks if the wang is vast in length and the water frigid
That the fleshy one-eyed monster is heir to – ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be drained of it's contents of last nights beer tent.
To die, to sleep To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub, lest we rub it too often,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come of being freely able to expose oneself
When we have shuffled off this mortal coiled snake-in-the-pants,
Must give us pause. There's the respect for one's Johnson
That makes calamity of so long life. For who would bear the whips and scorns of John Dodge,
Th’ oppressor's wrong, the proud man's purple headed warrior contumely,
The pangs of disprized love, the law's delay to arrest me for indecent exposure,
The insolence of office, and the spurns of the girls of Anarchy if girth matters,
That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare boner? Who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat if the zipper is stuck,
But that the dread of something after the session of fluid flowing,
The undiscovered country from whose jails No sailor returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear the loins we have
Than fly to others that we know not of? Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, if we fear to whip it out And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale wee-wee,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment so that one hand always is to the vessel,
With this regard the currents turn yellow, And lose the name of action.—Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons Be all my sins remembered.

Re: no discharge zones

Actually, it is legal to P directly into the water, BUT, to P into a cup or other holding item, then put into the water is the issue. Not sure why that is.......

I can't wait to see what they come up with to prove that a person swam without discharging ? Richard
I hear the government plan is to require ingestion of dye pills, distributed at toll booths, so that anyone peeing at the beach will be instantly identifiable and can be promptly arrested by a new legion of M-16 toting Pee Enforcement Environmental Police. Peeing in the water will likely be the main topic of debate in the house next session. Hey, if people can be forced to buy health insurance, who's to say they can't be made to swallow dye pills.
