Now I Won’t Feel Bad For Long Showers

Thanks to Les Jones, I now realize that people in Oregon have completely lost their minds. How many public pools are there in Oregon? Because I can promise you this has happened in just about every one of them:

And not necessarily with a candy bar. There’s a reason this is funny.

    How many animals defecate/urinate in it daily?

    Morons.

    Are there fish in the lake? Do they allow birds to fly over or ducks to swim? Do they filter or treat the water – or just pump lake water to everyone’s tap?

    We used to call the municipal pool at Rinconada Park “Mellow Yellow” for all the little kids and action it had. But if they think that’s bad they should go whale watching, and only then consider a dip in the ocean…

    It’s not “people in Oregon”.

    It’s one idiot at the Portland Water Bureau.

    (Christ – see that picture? It’s open to the air. Birds shit in it.

    This sort of thing is why I despair of government at all levels.

    And for once I think the Progressive Hippie Hordes in Portland would agree with me on something – that this was stupid. On the plus side, it was a wet winter, so the Bull Run is full and then some, so we’ve got plenty of water to replace it with.)

    I dunno…if they guy had typhoid, cholera or dysentery, could he have spread it around that way? Maybe just do some quick tests for common nasties that are spread through pee, and charge him for the testing.

    What do they do about giardia in that water? Here in Minnesnowta it’s commonly carried by moose, beavers and muskrat in what used to be pristine Boundary Waters lakes. Used to be you could scoop up a mug of water right out of the middle of those lakes; now you need to boil, ultra-filter, or iodine your drinking water.

    If it’s at all treated before putting it into the drinking water system (cholrinated, UV’d, etc) then I’d agree it was a complete and utter waste of money and resource.

    It would be insane to treat water, and then put it in an open-air reservoir. Too many things (a lot of them already listed) could happen to it!
