 It has been established that persons who have recently died have been returning to life and committing acts of murder. A widespread investigation of funeral homes, morgues, and hospitals has concluded that the unburied dead have been returning to life and seeking human victims. It's hard for us here to be reporting this to you, but it does seem to be a fact.

Chemists testing water at Toledo's Collins Park Water Treatment Plant had two sample readings for microcystin.

I had to Google that one: Microcystins are cyclic nonribosomal peptides produced by cyanobacteria.

Mmmm, cellular peptide cake. Delicious.

Pffft amateurs.

CSB. I used to live next to Grand Lake St Marys here in Ohio. Largest inland lake in the state. One night, we get a knock on the door from the fire department. Don't drink the water. Don't wash your pans in it. DON'T BATH IN IT FOR THE NEXT 48 HOURS. While fighting a fire, they ran out of pressure from the public line so they dragged a line into the lake to pump it out, like they've done for years. Some idiot never unhooked the city line and they pumped the bacteria infested water from the lake right into the public utility. Had to change the water filter in the fridge early, and replace a bunch of other water based shiat they ruined. But nobody paid for it. Assholes.
 
2014-08-02 08:54:47 AM  
Granted I don't live anywhere near Toledo, but seeing this sort of stuff makes me glad that I am a preparedness minded person. I have 60 gallons of drinking water stored, some in cases of bottled water, the rest in half gallon and full gallon jugs as well as about 15 bulk packs of baby wipes. Those are good for anything from waterless showers and toilet paper to wiping down countertops or even gun cleaning. You never know when the next flood, hurricane or even just a broke water main is going to cut off your water. It could be a few hours, it could be weeks. All those people in New York who had to crowd the Red Cross tents during Hurricane Sandy for basic living and sanitation supplies should show us all the importance of having a least a weeks worth of food, water, batteries, etc on hand just in case. Standing in a crowd of hundreds or thousands of hungry, dehydrated, stressed, tired, and angry people is a bad place to be. If you can avoid it by having some of that stuff in a closet somewhere, do it.

Toledo has one of the best art museums.  Really, they do.  However, the video game exhibit isn't all that great.  There are 3-4 games available you can play (Pac man, Super Mario Bros, Monkey Island) that are on timers - so you get about 2 minutes of play before it resets.  Other than that, you have a few screen-shots of some video games for each system and that is about it.

The only real 'art' section is a lot of concept drawings from Blizzard on World of Warcraft.

Unless you want to see something else they have at the museum, I would skip the video game exhibit.

So bring a few bottles of water with you. It's a day trip to a museum, not a week long expedition.

Sean Hannity here, and I wanna talk to you about food insurance. For just an absurd amount of money, you can buy your own food insurance in case the next natural disaster cuts you off from much needed supplies. You get two weeks worth of food delivered to you, nevermind the fact that if this was possible, you'd be doing it already at 1/10th the price. What do we care? You're listening to Hannity, you're sheeple anyway.

Uhhh what? Is that supposed to be a response to what I actually typed?

I spend about an extra $10-$15 every time I go to the grocery store on being prepared. Usually less once I have enough of something built up. A case of water costs $3.94. Pick up one of those every week when you go shopping for ten weeks and you've got over 30 gallons of water. Need to buy 1 can of tomato paste? Buy 2. Need to buy 1 can of soup? Buy 2. It's called copy-canning. Just pick one or two items each time you go shopping of things that you know you go through regularly. If you know you use 2 of something each week, buy an extra. Just keep doing that until you've got 5, 6, 10, whatever amount you want stored up in your pantry, then move on to another item. No need to spend a bunch of money on crappy "survival" food that you don't even like or know how to prepare. Just buy a little extra of the stuff you do like until you've got some put away. Then just put the newest stuff in the back and use the oldest stuff each time you use it. You're still going through the same food at the same rate you always do, just now you have extra in case you can't get more for a while. Doesn't cost you much at all. And you're storing what you like eating anyways.


Or were you just spouting some snarky dichotomy bullshiat with no real point?

If you can demonstrate that I'm wrong, then by all means do so. If you can show that there has never been a time in modern America where having a decent amount of extra drinking water or sanitation supplies was a good idea, I'm more than up for reading any source you want to cite. Just demonstrate how what I posted about being prepared is actually a bad idea and I will be the first to take your arguments into real consideration.

Microcystin is not a common toxin in the water supply, so it's not tested for on a regular basis.  The size and shape of the molecule allow it to pass through the normal filtration processes unchanged.  I'm sure flocculation removes some of it, but apparently not enough.

No, I was specifically addressing the issue of the people in NYC during the hurricane. There is a simple solution according to that blowhole for all their problems you were describing. Mind you it is 10 times as costlier than yours, and it most certainly you'll be dead by the time it's actually delivered, but free market solutions....

From what I understand, the problem is a lot like botulism.  Sure, boiling and standard filtration remove the organisms.  The toxin they generated, however, is still present and a lot harder to get rid of.
