much like his hair...
 
2012-03-20 11:03:27 AM  
Well, he certainly knows a thing or two about being horrible, noisy and disgusting
 
2012-03-20 11:09:07 AM  
Oh, I thought he said "windbags".

Horrible, noisy and disgusting. Look at the carnage and destruction.

Dude, did you have to post that right before lunch time? I think I've lost my appetite.

He should know

Slap a big "T" on it, and I'm sure he'll change his mind.

What type of person attacks windmills?

They don't think much of you, either, Donny.

They're awful.

Wind farms are ugly eyesores too. And when they all break down in years to come -- too expensive to repair or remove -- they'll be nothing more than scrapyards of twisted metal junk.

Because no one would maintain them in order to continue generating electricity, would they? I mean, this whole electricity stuff is just a fad.

That's an oil powered windmill. The ones that run on natural gas are much cleaner.

Once all the tax credits, write-offs, subsidies and giveaways are gone, they'll not be worth the cost of maintaining them. They'll just sit there and rust.

You mean to say that it isn't worth a little bit of grease or whatever else it takes to get virtually free electricity? I realize the initial capital investment may be high, but I would have guessed maintenance costs to be relatively low compared to other sources.

They've been building them since before the current round of credits and stuff started. I remember being a kid and they were showing places they were installing them. You know, 30 years ago.

This is why we send billions of dollars to the insanely profitable oil companies so they can maintain their platforms and rigs and we can see the savings at the pump.

That's why the Germans are replacing all their nuclear reactors with wind power. If it didn't make economic sense, the Germans wouldn't do it. Because they're smart. Unlike some OTHER people we know.

It's an act. This is his job, he's a paid shill. He gets money to write all this stupid shiat and derail threads. Just put him on ignore like the rest of us.

Is there a reason anyone answers anything more than 'shut the fark up you twat!' to this guy? He derails threads into people answering his stupid statements with simple logic that he ignores in order to post more stupid statements.

Donald Trump and wind are natural enemies.

That's weird... We've got a couple here around Salt Lake, and they aren't "ugly eyesores", they're rather graceful, actually. I think Wind and Solar are just part of a larger picture rather than the Magic Beans that will make the world perfect. I think we need to ditch coal and hydro, concentrate on a combination of nuclear, tide generation, solar and wind, but I sure as hell wouldn't call them "ugly".

As far as breaking down, they invented a new process called 'maintenance', it's supposed to be pretty top-notch for this kind of scenario, we'll have to find out. I, for one, am on the edge of my seat...
 
2012-03-20 02:24:01 PM  
I disagree that they are ugly. I actually find them beautiful. The wind farm outside Palm Springs is mesmerizing.
 
2012-03-20 02:24:51 PM  
We get almost 5% of our electricity from wind power in Washington.

SkinnyHead has the ability to not only cut the most rotten, putrid fart in a thread, but then come back and light a match, sending the entire thread into a flaming disaster.

It's actually impressive.
 
2012-03-20 02:26:23 PM  
I'm not against windmills, but they are unsightly. A hundred red lights blinking in unison on the horizon ruins a perfectly good sunrise over the cornfields on my drive to work.

/yes, yes, coal smog is ugly too.

2012-03-20 02:27:03 PM  
"WINDMILLS ARE SUCH AN EYESORE"

"NUCLEAR POWER IS TOO DANGEROUS"

"GAS IS TOO DIRTY"

"OIL IS ALMOST GONE"

Jesus, give me a break, there's never going to be an energy source that pleases everyone. Windmills are clean and produce zero pollution. Certainly they might not be enough to power the entire nation, but there's no good reason to not supplement our power with them.

Just like BrainDeadTed. Love them windmills, not in MY area.

/thank God he is dead, best thing he ever did.
liked the Dead Kennedy's.

Hey guys, has anyone made a joke about El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes? See, I know things too!!!!

Wind and oil are both bad so who should I vote for?
 
2012-03-20 02:28:45 PM  
So are windbags, but we don't hear Melania complaining.
