Forced lobotomy camp sounds hilarious. We could remove lobes to make some people calmer or just play with the brain and make them do things. Sort of like a hypmotist. Hey why not make it easier and just have hypmotist camp.

train mumbling

DADA- the father of the surreal!

I saw a great art instuallation years ago at SF MOMA that had a film loop playing of a train going in and out of the same tunnel accompanied by some mumbling by the artist about how he didn't know if he was asleep or awake. That would be perfect for this theme!

what if we rang a bell every time we put shots of patron out on the bar and eventually stop presenting the shots but just ring the bell... and see how many people line up at the bar for they-don't-know-what...

Hmmm, bell rings, porn is displayed on a screen for 5 minutes. 30 minutes later, bell rings again, porn shown for 5 minutes. How many times does this have to be repeated before an erection is obtained at the sound of the bell. Is an erection obtained in ANTICIPATION of the bell? What if the periods between porn are irregular at random intervals of anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes?

Hmmm, the possibilities.

Oh you expect NorCal fish and parakeets to know and care about the difference? We're just watching you like a hawk (and a shark) to make sure you don't try and steal our water.

You do know that was toungue in beak?

Dang water is a damn mess and going to be worse as the globe warms up. I guess the San Jouquin is forced to flow up hill and south, but that may be ag grab. I thought you were taking from the Owens Valley.

From what I gather, and I might be way off base, we get most of our water from colorado and winter runoff.

yeah, water, mess. If you think wars over oil are icky, just wait till we have water wars.

The Issue: Fresh water resources from the Eastern Sierra nevada Mountains are being diverted by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power from natural communities and human settlements in the regions around Mono Lake and the Owens Valley to meet the needs of a growing human population in Los Angeles.

* Should Los Angeles be taking the water from this region?
* How much water should remain in the Eastern Sierra Nevada's to meet the needs of the natural communities which have evolved in that region?
* How much water should remain in this region to meet the needs of people who have settled there?
* What compensation does Los Angeles owe these regions of our state for taking the water?
* What responsibility does Los Angeles have for resolving the problems which it's removal of water caused the natural and human communities residing in this area?
I think this may be a little out of date, I thought Mono Lake was safe.

William Mulholland presided over the creation of a water system that forever changed the course of southern California's history. Mulholland, a self-taught engineer, was the chief architect of the Owens Valley Aqueduct--a project ranking in magnitude and daring with the Panama Canal--that brought water to semi-arid Los Angeles from the lush Owens Valley. The story of Los Angeles's quest for water is both famous and notorious: it has been the subject of the classic yet historically distorted movie Chinatown, as well as many other accounts. This first full-length biography of Mulholland challenges many of the prevailing versions of his life story and sheds new light on the history of Los Angeles and its relationship with its most prized resource: water.

from NRDC

Approximately 41 percent of LA water comes from the LA Aqueduct, whicih uses largely undeveloped watersheds in the eastern Sierra. Around 47 percent of LA water comes from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and from the Colorado River. About 12 percent omes from wells in the San Fernando Basin.
