wait wait wait....bellaire is in Ohio!?
In Texas too
so many years of my life were a lie....
Yup, TX stole it from my state.
Meh, Texas is fail anyways. So why would you care ;P
Hey... Texas is awesome!
How did this happen is a good question.
mislabeled containers ftw... or as some people in our community will say: its a sign of the decline of our society as whole.
thought bellaire was where Dj Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince were?
Like in Cali? lol
that's what I was referring to lol
and I <3 Texas
and idc about the containers, no one got hurt and there's probably plenty of shit in the water we don't know about.
Can you say "human error"? Doesn't matter how many safeguards you build into industrial systems, there are always ways to screw things up.
From the article,
Another reason not to fluoridate water? You decide
Ah, fluoride to hcl acid switch, gotcha.
i would have filled up a bucket with it and thrown it on people...or in peoples grass....hey would it stay if i evaporated the water? make it more concentraed muhaahahahah
To a certain point, yeah.. not recommended to do this without a fume hood, goggles, and other appropriate safety gear, or at all actually. Hydrogen chloride is stable as both a gas and dissolved in water, and even at lower concentrations (10~20%+) at ambient temperatures it can "fume";
i.e. vapors of hydrogen chloride will evaporate from the solution and dissolve in the water vapor in the air, which you will then breathe x.x
Please, seriously, don't try this at home.
Also, you'll ruin your pots and pans
If you want something fun to throw on people, try cat piss? If you want something to throw on people's lawns, try weed killer? I don't know
There's a type of fuel which leaves residue that doesn't dissolve and keeps whatever you pour and light it on barren until the soil is replaced, it might just be regular salt dissolved in white gas... I'm not entirely sure. Salt alone if mulched into turf does the same thing.
As for getting out whatever urge you have in that mind of yours, whatever liquid fart bombs have in them would really suck to get on you.
Remember those from elementary school? http://unclestinky.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/shit-egg3.jpg
my gf is from frisco, TX and its awesome there..so ya to that!
Everyones got good jokes tonight. +1 for ironjaw!
On topic. I'm guessing someone got the boot!
What's weird though is that they took the contaminated water and just released it through the fire hydrants... does this no contaminate the whole area just the same? Though on a high note they don't have to mow the lawn anytime soon.
I guess they figure it will be filtered through the soil, evaporate off, or flow to the treatment plant where it will be treated before being sent back to the reservoir.
Yes, Bel Air in California is real. It's just not it's own city--it's a ritzy neighborhood within the city of Los Angeles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bel-Air,_Los_Angeles,_California
