Can the trains add a watering car that spray the tracks as they cruise along?  

How far do sparks fly? I think you talking about A LOT of water here.

teevee just said they have to slow the fuck down

I don't know.  I have never seen trains throw sparks except in the movies.

I've noticed that sometimes you don't think things through before opening your mouth.

Opening my mouth?  You must have one nasty keyboard.  

Anyhoo, I didn't make that up, they used water cars back in the day in Oregon to run ahead of the trains during fire season.  You don't have what it takes to be my nemesis if that is your goal.  Go back to the hole from whence you came.

Meanwhile the US still has an embargo on Cuba.  Bolsanaro is losing popularity by the day.  Sanction the shit out of Brazil for those specific imports now and we will probably see someone that is willing to work with us after the next election.

If you still have 30 years left to go I think you might be seeing more of the shit fly than you think by the way thing are going. 

I am closing in on 50, but it is not hard to believe I will make it to 2060.  I think I will witness a lot by then.

I'm well and truly terrified of what my kids will have to face in their world after we've finished fucking it up.

whoa...

"The obvious acceleration of the breakdown of our stable climate simply confirms that—when it comes to the climate emergency—we are in deep, deep shit," Bill McGuire, a professor emeritus of geophysical and climate hazards at University College London, told the BBC.

How on earth do you have your own personal troll on a board this small.

Baller.

I don't know.  I mean, have I pissed people off, sure, but not to this level I didn't think.   Oh well, now I get to see more of my late dog Bob.

And now you know why I've actively avoided having any. The world's bee  messed up for a long time.
