Weird how fracking is dangerous for their drinking water, but the US government says it's all good in the 'hood.

How about we, as a planet, try to figure out ways to power shiat that DON'T involve pumping undisclosed chemicals into the ground and water?

Apparently, fracking is good for making New Jersey Scotch, though...

I'm sorry... you must be confused... the politicians ARE the US Government... the ones that anyone **cares about anyways.

**using the word cares does not imply we want for their safety or desire to hear their lying forked tongues, simply that we don't hear much about anyone else nor is there anyone else with as a great a power to screw everything up that they touch

Meh. The planet's overrated anyway.

I wonder if there's a list of countries that aren't willing to further destroy their environment for fracking. I can't imagine it's not linked to countries that are places where people want to live for many other reasons.

Back in the ancient days BC  - Before Children (and Arizona) -, it was common in this household to hear the phrase "It's nipples out." used in reference to weather. That phrase vanished from common use early in the AD - After Delivery - era.

Yes, he mentioned that law by name in the article. So either he meant Germans traditionally love purity of beer and beer itself, by referencing that law, or purity and beer which opens the door for a possible holocaust joke.

Dude, you're brave enough to raise kids, and well defiantly looks like you're raising then right, which is something well. something I'm unwilling to do so I didn't have them and good on you for raising them right. and really no judgement there, and congrats again.

Until it's in the bottle/barrel. After that, we tend to be a bit more lenient. I mean, mixing beer with X might be bad, but it's certainly better than just drinking X by itself.

/X being e.g. lemonade ("Radler" or "Russ" -> Biker/Russian) or coke (can't tell you what that's called).

No but that would have been funny! Instead he introduced me to a "friend" of his... a very cute but sort of butchy girl who was an unemployed truck driver. She took me to an underground club that stayed upen all night in the old part of the city. It was a fun night and a very rough next day at work.

I used to moonlight as a musician in the Hofbräu Beer Garden in Panama City Beach. All the beer is imported from the HB in Munich. Wonderful stuff.

Germany is very serious about their beer. Weihenstephan is a town in Bavaria that houses a literal beer university. It is a three-year school you are required to go to if you want to open a brewery. Incidentally, they also produce the best beer I've ever tasted.

TFHM, I'll buy you a pint if you're ever in the St. Augustine area.

Good thing that German researchers can use the U.S. research to show that fracking is not a problem. Politicians, not so much.
If only we could put a reservoir cap on politicians, to seal them away where they'd do no harm.

Radler is sparkling lemonade mixed with Bier - Russ is when it's mixed with Weitzen - and it's a summer beverage.
I never encountered Colabier. (Sounds like a hork-for-distance kind of thing.)

Spezi is another nice thing about summer in Bavaria.
