I thought the North Korean politicians were the ones supposed to be nuts, but this takes the biscuit.

Ja, he is zooo right. Maybe you know all the famous first lines of the German anthem "Wasser, Wasser über alles. Über alles in der Welt." Even I've heard rumours that some of my fellow people actually use water to ... take a bath!

Image

Naw, not this kind of bath this conservative German politician took after giving his word of honour. I was more thinking about this here ...

Image

Jeeeez! Absolutely not this one ... it is more about this ...

Image

Isn't that sick and pervert? Using water to keep yourself clean instead of using it for more senseful and useful things like ...

Image

Don't ye agree?

Anyhow, ...

I don't think Mr. Harrington needs ALL that water.

Like Mr. Clemens said, ' Whiskey is for drinkin, water is for fightin over.'
He is sure gonna be right about that around here.

its a tough one.

Guy applied for a permit to build ponds to catch rainwater. Permit removed so ponds need to be removed.

I can see his point of view but also the states.

What happened if someone owned the landed feeding the Colorado river and decided to catch all the snow/rain runoff from the rockies thus denying most of CA a water source. Would that be ok after all it is his land.

Good point, and is California stealing Oregons water by virtue of the rivers that flow across the border?

Will if you live in certain parts of the world such as Israel, India, some parts of S. America then some countries dam rivers close to the source depriving countries down stream the water.

I lived in Oregon shortly after I came back to the Mainland. During that period I had the misfortune live and work in Jackson County to boot.
That whole stae, and ESPECIALLY Jackson County are so f*cked up I left before the phone threats were carried out. Long story.
BTW, the state can have all the water it wants, cuz the people are just as f*cked up. #-o
Maybe you missed it, but there's a whole new "Now", now. :?
