    Students step over 'rivers of urine' after green bathrooms plan for waterless urinals turns a high school yellow... and it will cost $500,000 to fix

    Students at a high school in Boca Raton, Florida, must step over rivers of urine and endure the stench of rancid waste after a plan to bring 'green' waterless urinals into bathrooms backfired.

    School officials at Spanish River High School thought they had found an environmentally-friendly, cost-saving solution for their bathrooms when they installed Falcon Waterfree urinals in their boys bathrooms.

    But with no water moving through the school's copper pipes to flush the urine into the sewer system, the waste produced noxious gases that ate through the metal, leaving leaky pipes that allowed urine to drip into walls and flow onto floors.

    'It was pretty disgusting,' school board chairman Frank Barbieri told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
    'The girls had to step over a river of urine. I could smell it as soon as I walked into the hallway.'


    Al Gore invented those, by the way...

  • ||

    What, why can't I combine my hairshirt and my toilet, you fucking racist?

  • ||

    Look, man, if it's yellow, let it mellow. Only if it's brown do you flush it down.

  • ||

    I'm not talking about your hooker corpses, you strangle-happy prick.

  • ||

    Look, man, if it's pink and red, use the wood chipper.

  • ||

    Sterling Archer: Oh my god, you killed a hooker!
    ISIS Comptroller Cyril Figgis: Callgirl! She was a callgirl!
    Sterling Archer: No Cyril, when they're dead, they're just hookers!

    I've seen these waterless urinals around. They're big in desert areas. Never run into this, though. I'm guessing somebody's brother-in-law went cheap on the install.

  • ||

    Well it sounds like at least a daily rinse is required. Waterless does not mean water-free.

    PETA suing Sea World for the crime of slavery in violation of the 13th Amendment . Because you know, whales are people.

    PETA claims the captured killer whales are treated like slaves for being forced to live in tanks and perform daily at its parks in San Diego and Orlando, Fla.

    "This case is on the next frontier of civil rights," said PETA's attorney Jeffrey Kerr, representing the five orcas.

    [. . .]

    "This is an historic day," Kerr said. "For the first time in our nation's history, a federal court heard arguments as to whether living, breathing, feeling beings have rights and can be enslaved simply because they happen to not have been born human. By any definition these orcas have been enslaved here."

    The only thing dumber than conservative Bible thumpers are liberal activists.

  • ||

    PETA is a front organization designed to make vegetarians looks stupid.

  • RoboCain||

    Then they are succeeding admirably.

  • mad libertarian guy||

    Vegetarians don't need help with that. Any excuse one might use to go directly against our evolutionary design with the sole exception of "If I eat meat, I will die" (which is very, very rarely the case) is absolutely foolish and nothing more than political grandstanding.

  • ||

    PETA's attorney Jeffrey Kerr

    Oh, if only his momma had named him Joe.

  • ||

    I dated a PETA attorney once. She was a vegen and really skinny with big tits and fucked like a rabbit. Ultimately, I was just a bit too much of a carnivore for her.

  • ||

    You should have taken her to Texas and gone to a barbecue buffet. She wouldn't have been able to resist the brisket, dude, and then you would have saved her soul.

  • ||

    I was working on her. I think that is why she left. I dated her for about two months of really great sex. I look her up on the internet sometime. She is still working for PETA. I didn't save her.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    Hook a brotha up with a name (for Google search).

  • ||

    Actually I am wrong. She doesn't work for PETA. And God I am getting old. She was older than me at the time. And it has been a while. She is like in her late 40s now. But she is the director of an environmental group now. She is a pretty big deal. I will save her privacy however.

  • Heroic Mulatto||

    I will save her privacy however.

    See? That is what causes gay marriage.

  • ||

    It is kind of funny though HM. She is reasonably prominent in the enviro and animal rights community. I see her pop up now and again and can't help but be a 16 year old again and think "I used to sleep with her".

  • Heroic Mulatto||

  • Matrix||

    They'll be put in their place in court. If the courts actually ruled in their favor, this entire country would grind to a halt, because any industry that uses animals would suddenly find themselves unable to continue using them.

  • mad libertarian guy||

    I agree. No more circuses and the like. Even training your dog to roll over and give a shake would necessarily have to be banned.

    Hopefully the judge decided to hear this case so that he can even more emphatically tell PETA to piss up a rope. Anything less will actually give their cockamamie theory that whales are people legitimacy.

    On a side note, how many of these people would say that corporations aren't people that aren't deserving of any Constitutional rights, but whales are and deserve all of the rights of people? Because that's EXACTLY the stance they are taking.

    Organizing for America defends Obama's super PAC decision.

    Why is Obama making any decisions either supporting or decrying any Super PAC? I'm under the impression that Super PACs and politicians are supposed to be completely separate entities with no collaboration between the two.

    But you have to love his excuse: "We can't compete against Republicans blah blah blah so we just HAVE to adopt their horrible tactics",

    Let's forget that Obama has a billion dollar war chest largely financed by Wall Street bankers; we'll concentrate on those evil "outside groups" and pretend that they're evil.

    So the SCOTUS is going to let stand the ruling that gay marriage statutes, once enacted, can never be repealed? Even by constitutional amendment?

    So that elevates gay marriage to the requirement that states have equal representation in the Senate, I guess.

    Should Humans Be Obligated To Serve As Guinea Pigs For The Future Profitab... Sorry, For Our Children?

    Should Participation in Vaccine Clinical Trials be Mandated?

    Would the existence of a potentially lethal infectious disease, for which vaccine development was hampered by a shortage of volunteer trial subjects, justify making trial participation mandatory?
    Susanne Sheehy, BM BCh, MRCP, DTM&H, and Joel Meyer, BM BCh, MRCP

    [...]To date vaccination has saved many lives and has the potential to save millions more, especially if vaccines are developed against the “big three”: malaria, HIV, and TB [2-5]. Vaccine development, however, comes at a price that is not only financial but societal. The lack of animal models that can reliably predict vaccine efficacy means that development still unavoidably relies on testing of novel vaccines in healthy individuals.

    [...]

    However it is hard to increase volunteer payment without creating financial incentives. “Danger money” is frowned upon as an inducement that inevitably clouds an individual’s appreciation of risk, limiting the likelihood that consent is informed[...]

    [...]If progression of promising vaccines from the lab to the clinic is to remain unaffected and financial inducement is an ethically unacceptable solution to the recruitment shortage, other strategies need to be considered. Compulsory involvement in vaccine studies is one alternative solution that is not as outlandish as it might seem on first consideration.


    Dr. Mengele would cry tears of joy.

  • ||

    I love the fact that she says we can't pay people because "danger money clouds their perception of risk". But it is perfectly okay for the government to force people to do it for free. WTF?

It's impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror... Horror has a face... and you must make a friend of horror. Horror and moral terror are your friends. If they are not, then they are enemies to be feared. They are truly enemies! I remember when I was with Special Forces... seems a thousand centuries ago. We went into a camp to inoculate some children. We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio, and this old man came running after us and he was crying. He couldn't see. We went back there, and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried, I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out; I didn't know what I wanted to do! And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it... I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought, my God... the genius of that! The genius! The will to do that! Perfect, genuine, complete, crystalline, pure. And then I realized they were stronger than we, because they could stand that these were not monsters, these were men... trained cadres. These men who fought with their hearts, who had families, who had children, who were filled with love... but they had the strength... the strength... to do that. If I had ten divisions of those men, our troubles here would be over very quickly. You have to have men who are moral... and at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... without passion... without judgment... without judgment! Because it's judgment that defeats us.

    People who work their asses off so that when the lucky break comes, they can exploit it. Also, they then tend to be generally likeable people who exploit the lucky break.

    Harrison Ford became Lucas' friend because he didn't say, "Hey! Mister Big Shot! Screw you and your being one percent!"

    If, as a woman, you want one of those careers, find a dude who is willing/wants to stay home and raise the kids. And be willing to shell out for therapy. JUST LIKE MEN ARE.

    Also, the hate for Bill Cosby on that article was fun, because Cosby is kind of right. Don't give your kid a stereotypical name (as Freaknomics showed, the kind of families that name their kid Darayray are not the same socioeconomic bracket as those who name their kid Michael) and make them go to school.

    Will they end up millionaires? Probably not. But you can definitely give them a better shot of at least breaking in to the lower middle class, especially if you encourage them to look into more trade professions like nursing, paralegal, carpenter, plumber, etc.

So it's not out of college either. Maybe someone wouldn't let her through an actual gate somewhere, like a park? If so, that's bullshit. Women should be allowed in all the city parks.

    Wifey recorded House, I got into it for the first time in years. House just called the administrator a coward. Recording froze. WHAT HAPPENED NEXT!!!

    He has sex with her.

  • Killazontherun||

    Okay. That makes sense. I guess I can rest easily now. No it doesn't! The administrator is a dude. Don't make call my bro to find out. He never gives away something for nothing. This is the internet, don't let me down, man. Oh, I should have added some misinterpretation of events in there, you guys would have been all over that shit. To be fair, so would I.

    He walks out and apologizes, sincerely, to the Aussie for the stabbing being his fault.

    It doesn't disclose what exactly he did or why he feels responsible, however, which is what makes it so good.

  • Killazontherun||

    Thanks. I missed your reply on my first scan up.

  • Killazontherun||

    That really was a good episode though I'm a bit sick of existentialist philosopher administrators who are trying to exact a raison d'etre out of every work related incident. Writers are just stupid that way.

  • Killazontherun||

    Told wifey your answer. She corrected me that it was Eps he called a coward and the person who I thought was an administrator was brought in for independent judiciary purposes. I made errors after all!

    WTF's a "House?"

  • ||

    It's a show about an English comedian pretending to be Sherlock Holmes.

    I thought he left American Idol?

    No, that's a show about a music executive scion pretending to be interested in music.

    Something Obama's going to help you pay for... even if you have two!

    If there is another Falklands war, it will prove that democracies actually do go to war with each other.

    That's not the Help He Wanted

    A depressed Army reservist who made a phone call for help says dozens of police responded by surrounding his home and arresting him, vandalizing and searching his place without a warrant, seizing his dog and killing his tropical fish.
    Matthew Corrigan, who lives alone with his dog, sued the District of Columbia in D.C. Federal Court.
    Confronted with a massive police presence after his plea for help, Corrigan says, he denied officers permission to enter his house, but they entered and trashed it anyway, saying, "I don't have time to play this constitutional bullshit!"

    Yet another example supporting my rule:

    Never call the cops for help unless it's for help in making an insurance claim. Anything else can result in you (or whomever you called for) getting beaten and/or shot.

    Welcome to the future, without regard as to which Team Hood Ornament wins in November.

  • Brett L||

    "I don't have time to play this constitutional bullshit!"

    That should be worth a million in civil damages to the plaintiff and firing without pension or benefits to the sworn officer speaking those words on duty.

    Though the replacement rate needed for Jezebel reading might be beyond normal replacement rates.

    Yes, the "for all intents and purposes" was implicit.

  • Jumbie||

    Saw some comments about whether Presidents' Day was about white power, culminating in this: "In the future, President's Day will celebrate Obama as one of the great presidents...hopefully. Fingers crossed for more improvements if he gets reelected for the next term."

    I was honestly not expecting the Santorum surge, but he's only taking the early Primary/Caucus states I expected Gingrich to win. Unless God gives us a miracle and gives Ron Paul some Super Tuesday victories I still fear Romney will be the nominee.
