    A crazy aspect of that is that only 3% of the food grown in the USA is fruit or vegetables. A lot of that in CA. Farmers are paid and subsidised to grow the stuff that makes you fat and sick.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    The white line is where the level was 14 years ago.

    Las Vegas reuses 93% of water and is cutting water use even as population grows. The problem is the Colorado river is drying up.

    Relating the size of the cars on the highway, it would appear that the low level stripe of land is a hundred feet or more. Is that correct?

    I recently watched a documentary that showed signs of warfare and even cannibalism towards the end of their culture. I have visited many ruins and find it all very fascinating.
