What a bunch of Idiots (New Orleans)

I heard on the news that they are going to dump all the rubble from New Orleans into the ocean because they dont know where to put it.
Not only is this an envirommental nightmare, but think of all the electricity they could generate with all that stuff, and think of all the needed fill they could get from all the non-burnables, and used to get above sea level.
Whoever came up with that idea of dumping in the ocean, must have spent way too much time in college, because it's usually those that do not go to college that can think logically.

A real idiot is someone who doesn't know that this is a group that discusses home repair solutions, and who, instead posts comments such as yours.

And the best reason not to archive! Tom

They do know where to put it: in the ocean (actually, the Gulf).

Who cares? Years ago, when Louisiana opened a hunting season on alligators, envioronmentalists (like, from Boston), complained bitterly. The governor of Louisiana offered to ship them each as many alligators as they wanted. "They's lined up on the Interstate just a-waitin' for somebody to have a flat! Those folk up north don't know nothin' 'bout gators!" Evidently they don't know nothin' 'bout rubble either.

Think of all the sawdust they could generate. Think of all the gravel they could generate. Problem is, they don't need sawdust, gravel, or electricity.

They don't need fill, either.

About the only thing those who do not attend college learn on their own is that college is not useful.

Seperate out all the longest boards. Remove the nails. Stack them neatly onto flatbed trucks.
Bring them to my House.
I'll take everything you got.

But you won't go sort and pull the nails yourself, will you? Because you know that it doesn't make any economic sense to do so.

You didn't used to live in New Orleans, did you? Refugees there were very particular on what they wanted. When offered Subway sandwiches, they insisted on PortOSubs. When offered coffee, they insisted on cappucino. When offered regular bottled water, they insisted on Evian.
But, hey, if we can accomodate these verrrrrry particular refugees, I guess we can pull a few nails for you.
