Urgh, doesn't bear thinking about.

2003-05-07 11:56:10 AM  
That stinks
2003-05-07 11:56:56 AM  
Well, its better than Saddams ship anchored on the edge of Basrah right now. It looks like a bomb was dropped down the smoke stack, and all the locals are stealing everything left off of it and burning it. Probably used to be a nice ship

There now you can swim you mellodramatic nervana hippies! eat dirt!

And when you are clean and stop convincing yourselves you are losers and will never amount to anything, go get real jobs and put something back into the government already...

2003-05-07 11:59:50 AM  
not to mention the free-flowing canals of waste in this city. Try swimming in that. Just driving by is enough to make you puke
2003-05-07 12:02:35 PM  
If only the public really knew what Navy and cruise ships "normally" dump overboard everyday...

One poopy McScoopy with fries, please.

2003-05-07 12:04:14 PM  

This is the Exxon-Valdez of poo.
2003-05-07 12:04:30 PM

2003-05-07 12:10:13 PM  
it is now called the Strait of Juan de Caca

that is all
2003-05-07 12:10:32 PM  
Welcome to our L, notice there is no "poo" in it, please keep it that way.
2003-05-07 12:11:51 PM  
The Strait of Juan de Fuca is Fuca'd.
2003-05-07 12:12:18 PM  
I aim to Please.
2003-05-07 12:12:26 PM  
They normally dont dump the shiat in a harbor or small body of water but in the middle of the ocean.... poop city.
Its just shiat, hey it happens. it will go away on its own if you let it and it wont really hurt anything but the smell of the place
2003-05-07 12:13:06 PM  
Wait a dern minute here smegma, you wont swim in the ocean because the fish swimith there, yet you have no qualms with breathing air? i mean seriously, there is more Shat in the air then in the sea

2003-05-07 12:14:08 PM  
This is no big deal. The city of Victoria BC has been dumping sewage in the Strait of Juan de Fuca for decades.
2003-05-07 12:16:07 PM  
/your an idiot...oh yeah.

No, you're and idiot.
2003-05-07 12:16:53 PM  

i don't think so. that raw sewage has to go somewhere.
2003-05-07 12:19:15 PM  
hmmm, kinda reminds me of the Milwaukee River

I like the up-to-the-date and no-moss-on-me "grunge" reference to Seattle.
2003-05-07 12:26:51 PM  
I thought Grunge was dead.
2003-05-07 12:27:08 PM  
eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. brown water is nasty
2003-05-07 12:31:15 PM  
Well, whenever I'm on a cruise ship I always pee in the shower and poop in the sink, so even if they got it right you'd still have been screwed... After all, I don't trust those toilets on cruise ships, the WHOOOOOSH sound they make scares the heck out of me.
2003-05-07 12:35:53 PM  
Oh Captain, you're gonna need a dingy and a bucket.
2003-05-07 12:35:56 PM  
Trouble is, we've killed so many whales that we have to artificially fertilize the plankton. No big deal, really. It all comes out in the end.
2003-05-07 12:35:59 PM  
Zaphod42, damn. Talk about things that make you feel like a flaming jackass.

As far as the Navy is concerned, we follow strict guidelines for dumping at sea. NO plastics unless it poses a health threat. NO oily wastes or hazarous material. All others MUST follow international rules. If caught violating these rules, at a minimum it will cost you several months pay plus reduction in rank. If serious enough a Courts Martial will be conviened and prison time to follow. The Navy takes its environmental stewardship responsibilities very serious.

2003-05-07 12:39:25 PM  
People poop at sea? I've never seen that in a cruise advert.
2003-05-07 12:39:38 PM

2003-05-07 12:43:13 PM  
that was the Monongahela(sp) River
