Wonderful writeup! Thankies. And you’re totally right about the sudden changes in water level. I’ve seen it fill to the brim (maybe more than 9’ deep?) in a matter of minutes.

I hadn’t considered the dissolved metals and other fine ingredients aspect.

Let the record show that I have only been in the retention pond once after heavy rains.

No worries :)

Those ponds perform two functions. First, when you pave an area, water runs off faster and doesn’t soak in. The pond catches the water and releases it slowly so that you don’t have a huge shock to the river. The pond will tend to be subject to sudden changes in water level, which can be dangerous.

Second, as water runs through the streets and storm drains, it picks up all sorts of pollutants, like oil, dog crap, dissolved metals (lead, mercury, etc), bacteria and viruses (such as E.coli and others) and other industrial chemicals and whatnot. The pond is designed to trap these things so that they don’t reach the river. So basically the pond is a stew of things you don’t want on your skin.

Additionally, there is some risk of cross-contamination from the sanitary sewer system (that’s the toilet waste one). And finally, any water body designated for swimming within a city is monitored for bacteria, etc and signs are posted to close the beach if it’s unsafe. Retention ponds are not monitored, so you don’t know if there are dangerous levels of bacteria or algae growth or any of the other stuff water picks up in the streets.

Totally never far…and that’s what makes the bait so convincing. And you just know that most Arizonies would pass some shit like this given the chance.

Yep, yep. They’re the only band I’ve ever seen three times.

Black Girls is one of my absolute favorites. Well, almost all their songs are…but everything’s completely in the pocket the first half and then the second half goes into this chaotic jam session with each instrument taking a turn. I love that all the instruments are familiar but carry a fresh, almost sexual connotation and/or frustration.

And then the third verse lyrics…they were the first time I heard something racially negative about white boys coming from a white boy. :D

Not recommended from which standpoint?

I’m not trying to be jerky, I’m just completely dumb about such things.

i’ve really grown up. matured. this was literally was a goal for some buddies and myself. we wanted to be able to stink something up so bad people puked. we concocted special meals, almost all of it bean-based, in order to further our cause. anyone out here on tcr! want to guess how old i was? your first 2 guesses don’t count.
