    Uh, i thought Dasani tasted good until my kid pointed out my folly. It does feel a little strange, going grocery shopping and reaching for a product on the shelf, looking to see if your kid shakes his head yes or no.:D

    I’m offended, outraged, victimized, disenfranchised, mocked, and shamed. As soon as I identify the reason - I will not back down!! :mad::D

    I’m not. I’m interested in pointing out how people go off the deep end and start making stuff up to reinforce their paranoia whenever they read an incomplete bit of information that rubs them the wrong way.

    There’s no “speech code”, you made that up. They are rewriting their city cde to eliminate gender specific terms. However silly that may be, the rest of the stuff you came up with here is not based in anything resembling fact, other than your saying “I imagine... “

    As a civil rights lawyer who sues government for a living, I tell myself that most days. I also put my money where my mouth is.

    No. A man hole is a lid to a vault that a man can get inside of. Electric vault or a sewer outlet/inlet. Whereas a handhole is a lid to a box. Usually fiber or electric.

    Hand wringing over stuff that doesn’t effect you is ridiculous guys.

    It’s a great place to live if you can afford it (Bay Area in general)

    Yes there are some minor inconvenience but overall it’s worth it

    Ain't that the truth! I've been at it for 22 years and feel like I haven't made a dent.

    This won't be the last thing these ambitious totalitarians ban. And they won't be asking for approval. :wave

    Fiji is good stuff. I like the taste of that too. I get that when we go to Moe's Burritos. I'll ask my kid what's in it when he comes home again.

    I used to drink whatever was the cheapest at the store. After semi recently being forced to completely and utterly rebuild my house I installed a softener ( I have a nice, deep well, but water is hard) and got a refrigerator with a purifier in it ( 98. something%). Now I just fill stainless steel bottles straight from the fridge. I took two weeks at the beginning of the month to take my wife and parents to all the plains Indian sites and mountain ranges between here and Island Park Idaho. I drank Smart Water the whole time. I'm not sure if it really is smart but it tasted good. :)

    The gender neutrality stuff is pretty darn goofy.

    Well it seems that they are getting rid of natural gas to combat global warming.

    From a Bloomberg article:
    Gas use is responsible for 27% of Berkeley’s greenhouse-gas emissions, according to the city. While gas-fired power plants supply about a third of California’s electricity, the state has set a goal of going carbon-free by 2045.

    Many things that are introduced in CA find their way north to me, so I do tend to pay attention. :)

    I don’t get the impression you’ve actually read anything about this at all. And certainly nothing I wrote.
