if you're not part of the solution you're part of the precipitate

I work in drinking water regulation and we always jokingly say that dilution is the solution.

Way to water down a problem til it goes away.  Shea must've been a military medic - prescription is just water.  Will be confirmed if he starts chucking motrin at the problem next.

I don't work in any water regulation, but I've heard that joke. The solution to pollution is dilution.

I don't know about using saline solution for the roads.  The drug store charges, like, tree fiddy for a little dropper full of the stuff.

Better stick to salt.

I've heard if you eat a little lead paint that it balances out as lead absorbs the radioactivity.

Saline solution is so easy to make. One quarter tsp salt, one half cup water: isotonic.

I can't believe places still use sodium chloride and potassium chloride on the roads. It doesn't even work well.
Beet brine is what the smart folks use.

Some places dump the snow plow snow in the public swimming pools to keep the salts out of the rivers.
