first..

hehe..just kidding..
 
2003-01-07 07:40:18 PM  
I believe the proper term is 'citizens of the state of Alabama', not trash.
 
2003-01-07 07:41:51 PM  
ye could call 'em "kinfolk", too, y'know...

I lived in Alabama for about 6 months. 6 months too long. shiathola of a state. There's more places than just the river where there's too much trash.
 
2003-01-07 07:44:18 PM  
Another example of a stupid article being posted because of a brilliant headline.

Huzzah!
 
2003-01-07 07:44:36 PM  
Headline should have read:

Plenty of white trash found in Alabama along TN River.

Damn Crackers

Are any of these girls from Alabama? What about their parents?

Go Alabama! They should use the high school students and graduates to clean it up. Since Alabama also has the best illiteracy rate, they should make great ditch diggers! I think about the most absurd thing I've seen in Alabama was a Escort with a gun rack! Now that's just lame! WTF was that arse thinking? "WOW, this is stylin'. Gona shoot me some porcupine, and hump me a sheep!"

Consider this, if you're from Alabama, and smart enough to make it out of the state. You've just surpassed the entire population's intellect.

People in New York like to make fun of how bad the water is in the Hudson and East Rivers. But whooooweee, the water in the Tennessee and Mississippi rivers make the Hudson look like sparkling spring water. Don't they have sewage treatment or landfills down south?

How is it NSFW? You might get some odd looks, but seriously.

Don't hurt my feelings like that..

Calisa: "Are any of these girls from Alabama? What about their parents?". If any of those girls are from Alabama, they ARE parents.
 
2003-01-07 07:59:44 PM  
Calisa,
Not to hurt your phelings, but that's purty close to a sweet lookin' mouth.. if'n you no wot I mean!

Actually, that link is not safe for work. Managers take everything wrong now a day in Corporate America.. If you even as so much have a woman on your PC's screen other than a wife or G/F. They go ape droppings all over your wage evaluations, and company records.
 
2003-01-07 08:00:31 PM  
all the trash is probably disguarded chemicals from making meth. You know how those rural folk are, one minute there doing lines of meth, the next they think they are "chefs". Or rather cooks.
 
2003-01-07 08:05:22 PM  
Alabama isn't that bad. It's just different. I was born in AL, and I live here now. Most people that don't like AL have either never been here, or have only been to one part which happened to be in the middle of the woods or in some town with a population of 72. Granted, there are quite a few towns with a population of 72, but it doesn't stop there. Don't jump on the "Alabama is a shiathola of a state" bandwagon unless you're really sure.

Last time I went to Alabama, I was 12. Some kid named Jud said "yer from California, aintcha?". I asked him how he knew.

And it's cheaper, certainly, than picking up decades of accumulated gunk by hand, an option studied but later discarded by the Corps of Engineers. Even if you could find enough teenagers to do the work on the cheap, the study said, it would cost $8.6 million to clean up the 4,000 soiled acres.

Translation, why waste $8.6 million on something like this while we can waste $100+ million dollors on someone's pet project that will eventually becomes the tax payer's white elephant.

You know why Alabama sucks?
They gave us one of the most excruciating musical groups ever, Lynyrd Skynyrd. They're like the inbred undead... it's been twenty years after the plane crash and they're STILL annoying people all over the country with their preachy, self-absorbed lyrics.
Sweet home, Alabama, my ass. Every time I hear that song I'm going to respond with the Grateful Dead's Alabama, Get Away.

why are prisoners not out picking up trash? we could probably save some money by getting rid of a few of them. just give them a small window to escape and when they try, shoot them.

I hate being from Tennessee so much. It's like a slightly better educated version of Alabama.

Of course, not that Kentucky is lightyears ahead of Tennessee or anything. We have KERA, after all, single-handedly retarding the education of an entire state. And, to be honest, TN is better educated than AL. And has much better roads, for what that's worth.

Calisa - That link may not exactly be NSFW... but it's formatted and colored exactly like a porn pop up ad, and links to sites featuring minors in skimpy outfits.

"Creepy" describes the general effect.
