Saturday Thread: Exporting Excrement
Oddly enough, it gets exported to Kern County!
How much? According to the San Jose Mercury News, "enough to fill a toilet the size of an Olympic swimming pool every four days."
I didn't even know they made 'em that big!
So, long story short, Kern County's voters said, "Thanks, but -- so to speak -- no thanks. Keep your . . . you know . . . to yourselves." The City of L.A. has graciously responded with a lawsuit to keep the river of poo flowing.
What does our City do with the do? The City spreads the human waste all "over a 4,700-acre farm the city bought for nearly $10 million about 15 miles south of Bakersfield."
Say it with me, "EEEEEEEWWWWWWWW!!!!" Da-uhm! Talk about "not in my backyard!" How bad a neighbor are we?!
And, please God, tell me they don't grow crops -- with an "o" -- on that land.
You people need to think about things like this when you advocate cramming more and more people into our city limits. Think about the logistics of ever-increasing population density. Put another way: if people will just move to Bakersfield instead of L.A., we can eliminate -- so to speak -- the middleman.
