    "Oh, signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
    Blocking up the scenery, breaking my mind
    Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?"
  • #32
    I have some bad news for you. This just in. The Berkeley town council has just decided to post signs in the public restrooms that farting is now a punishable offense.
  • #39
    @Ryunkin lol. Who's gunna get close enough to enforce that?
    Oh wait! The local police forces have all that secret stuff the government gave them, so I guess they'll have a gas mask or two on hand.
  • #42
    @HawkTheSlayer A friend of mine once told me about a guy whose farts would rot a gas mask, so maybe we should find him and ship him out to Berkeley to put a crimp in the city's potential cash cow.

    Do fish fart? Just wondering.
    My old grampa always told me those bubbles were turtles when we went fishing. I could see a potential problem with millions upon millions of those bubbles( fish farts) entering the atmosphere.

    You know, I better quit joking about that because liberal idiot at UC-Berkeley will secure a grant to research that and the taxpayers will have to foot the bill.
  • #101
    My god, you just might have something. FISH FARTS ARE CAUSING GLOBAL WARMING. incidentally, I hear that the dairy association was behind the no farting signs in the restrooms to take the heat off their bread and butter.

    I hope that they are being inclusive and posting their warning signs in six different languages, because if they're not...SHAME, SHAME ON THEM.
  • #121
    @Ryunkin -- Great point. Why aren;t these signs being printed in at least 12 languages? What is wrong with these freakin' Berkeley Bigots?
  • #123
    @Spankasky Even an idiot can make a good point every now and again, I just don't want to make a habit of it and force the geniuses to rethink the definition of intelligence. Our education system is in enough trouble.

    @Ryunkin -- No need to elucidate. I thoroughly understood your point. I was merely trying to punctuate it. :)

    Yes, if I saw that sticker at the pump I'd be shamed into leaving my car there and walk away, taking shallow breaths to reduce my carbon footprint.

    It'll probably harm the planet more to print and distribute the labels than any conceivable good could come of it.
  • #189
    I think it's a great idea. Every gas pump in the nation should have global warming warnings, all fuel containers should have global warming warnings too.

    Food containers should have global warningd too. "The food you have consumed has attributed to global warming. "

    All underwear and diapers should come with a tag less global warming printed in fabric.

    "Please minimize farting as it contributes to global warming."
  • #193
    @daclark1911 taking that to its logical conclusion, how about if we tattoo everybody with a label saying "Warning: this individual is harming the planet," with fine print about overpopulation and carbon footprints and thoughtcrime?

    How about a warning label showing where the money goes? That way we can learn which companies support continued relations with Saudi Arabia, the home of most of terrorism.
  • #110
    Fishbone345 - That would make a Hell of a lot more sense.(i.e. "Blood Diamonds", like the diamond industry singled out. Not sure how effectively they did though).

    While we're at it, let's put labels on the Keystone pipeline, explaining how not a single drop of the oil in it is going to go to providing U.S. with 'energy independence'.
  • #124
    Keep coming with those sensible arguments dude. BTW- I like the new avatar with the "face palm" polar bear. Make sure you keep that one saved. It's awesome. Ive been trying to find the "Amazed Befuddlement" pic ever since I changed it and then realized that I hadn't saved it.

    Are you with me in celebrating that the Blackhawks didn't win the cup?
  • #129
    @Spankasky Bobo!? Is that you? What happened to your old login? Were you naughty?

    Hells yes I was with you on the Blackhawks not winning the cup!! I was cheering for the Kings pretty loudly. Also, because there is a player on the Kings roster named Trevor Lewis who is from Utah. I might actually get to see Lord Stanley's cup in person!! I'm pretty jazzed about that.
    The thing that most annoyed me about the playoffs this year is that the two best teams (yours and mine) didn't make the Eastern Finals. So we were left with the riff raff (Montreal blech! And New York to embarrass the East in the finals, which is exactly what happened).

    Stupid idea, that is why it makes perfect sense that it was thought up in Berkeley
    No place other than California would come up with such a dumb a$$ idea as this.
  • #166
    Dumb ass? You mean like El Paso-the hairy armpit of America? I think that laughing is just weeping at your hometown's inadequacy by comparison. NOt that I live in Berkely, but......I mean, Berkeley's certainly not El Paso, although we all love "Down in the west Texas town of El Paso..." and all the pretend cowboys and rednecks that live their now.......

    Berkeley is just about the farthest from "dumb" you can get in America-but don't let facts about the intellegence of a given area's population get in the way of your ignorance........
    Yep, good ole' UC's only the smartest area of the country, and along with the Livermore area nuclear labs, this little 40-mile diameter circle of America comprises the largest concentration of geniuses, by far, and the most prolific scientific thought and major technological accomplishments ever advanced in history. It is the prime origin of a majority of the ideas that have propelled the entire world's advancement for the last 65 years.......We native Californian's used to laugh at some of the crazy hippie stuff that came out of Berkeley 40 years ago, but the folks that ever actually been there know it's a retirement town now outside of the famous campus........along with about 1 small block of unique touristy gift shops.

    Still, even after 50 years, there isn't really a better alma mater to have on your resume than UCB, outside of Stanford.......and that includes all the Ivy League schools.

    Berkelely, CA- development of advanced nuclear technology
    El Paso, TX- development of $.79 burrito and flour tortillas, and a refuge for White Power Extremists.

    Keep up the good work, El Paso!

    Ah yes when you can not argue intelligently then make an ad hoc attack on a completely unrelated subject.
    So yes dumb A$$.
  • #174
    I'm going to assume you really meant "ad hominem" attck.....but you had an unfortunate "Premature Enragulation" episode all over your keyboard.........maybe refresh your Wikipedia knowledge?
    Tell ya what.....I'll create an "ad hoc" committee, and then get back to you with a detailed analysis of your buffoonery..........
  • #175
    Just take a picture of yourself and send it that will be buffoonery enough.
  • #180
    I do have to give you credit for one thing here unfit. You hit El Paso right on the head in your description. It is by far the dumbest city in Texas by far.
    You did miss a could things though no white power extremists there that would be out in Utah or Idaho or for that matter California.
    What makes El Paso the by far dumbest city in all of Texas is the fact that it is the BLUEST CITY IN TEXAS. The entire city Government is Democrat. The Congressmen are Democrat, every state representative is Democrat, so yep I have to give you that one, El Paso is the dumbest city in Texas by far.
    Just as an aside here yes I said ad hoc, and in most cases that would apply to a committee but there are other uses as it means, created or done for a particular purpose as necessary, some synonyms are, expedient, emergency, improvised, rough and ready, makeshift, make-do, cobbled together, thrown together.
    That is what your comment was, expedient and thrown together. So sorry but I can't give you that one.

    Here is MN we should have warning labels at the voting booths that voting Democrat could have serious unforeseen consequences. Such as light rail tracks that actually increase CO2 emissions by increasing the drive time of other commuters.

    Might have to put stickers on cattle butts, too.
    Or signs every 50 feet around the perimeter of landfills.

    Not to sound repetitive--

    Liberals just can't help themselves! They deal in absurdities over cogent content. They act like "fish wives" who relish in augmentative discourse where winning the day is not as important as having the last word. One has to examine our history and explore their contributions......

    Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.

    The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:

    1. Liberals

    2. Conservatives.

    Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.

    Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement...

    Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.

    Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. They became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.

    Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious reasons.

    Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.

    Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, farmers, engineers, small business owners, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively.

    Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.

    Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America.. They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing. <wink>

    They have proven how bad making the ethanol that is put in our gass is bad for the environment.. what's even worse is we have to fill up at the gas station more often because the ethanol decreases are miles per gallon.

    Ya, they blew it with Solar investments too, we are paying some Wind Fields to NOT PRODUCE and the bird lovers hate them. BUT, Obama has a Trillion Dollars in the Farm Bill 2014 to invest in Bio-Fuel for us. Don't throw that French fry oil out.

    It will help remind me how I am helping our economy by burning fossil fuels.

    Not only do I help the oil companies which are based in the United States, I'm helping the people who are working on all the rigs drilling for oil and refining it, who are you mostly United States citizens. Along with that I'm helping of all the label makers were making labels to warn us about global warming, also helping of those people who are working to fight against global warming to have jobs.

    So burning fossil fuels is the American way and keeps the economy strong and vibrant.

    Mayor Tom Bates. Bates served in the California State Assembly representing the 14th District (the East Bay Area) from 1976 to 1996. During those 20 years, Bates was known as one of the legislature's most liberal members.

    Liberal? Whoda Thunkit
