FrancoFile: MFAWG: KyngNothing: Why would you make a "decorative water feature" in Phoenix? To show your development has more money than taste or common sense?

True answer: they're all the rage at golf courses, where every 3d rate muni has one or two.

This isn't a problem at my 3d rate muni in South Seattle, but might be in Phoenix

What's a muni?

Socialism. Golf for the proletariat.

(Owned by a municipality, like a city or county)

Father_Jack: FrancoFile: You live in Phoenix.  There's not supposed to be any standing water there.  Stop trying to make it something that it's not.

been saying this for years. if you want groomed grass lawns and open water, move to California.

Southern Arizona would be a much nicer place to live if legislation were in place to ban three things: swimming pools, golf courses, and refrigerated air conditioning. (Swamp coolers probably allowed, though I'm open to negotiation on that one.) That would quickly clear out all the undesireable elements, leaving only the natives (of various ethnicities) and the desert rats. Well, I guess there would still be Joe Arpaio, though if he had to live in anything like the conditions of his tent jail he'd probably retire to Minnesota as well.

If you're looking for an experience, look no further - Phoenix's hottest club is TRASH. As you step through the stainless steel door of this Meatpacking hotspot, you'll be greeted by none other than Pierre, the Muslim Elvis impersonator. This club has everything: clones, freaks, sneezing, a Russian man on a prepaid cell phone, and anyone can get in. There's no password. At the door, just do the Cosby Face.
