Well.  Portland’s water was full of shit this weekened.  Actually the bacteria was discovered on Wednesday.  They let everyone know on Friday — had to double-check.

I suspect a conspiracy by the Bottle Watered companies…

So, after this fun filled “Bottled Water Weekend”, I jog my memory back to some things that George Carlin once had to say.

“I always ask people in every city if they trust the water. They always say no.

Nobody trusts the local water supply, nobody, and that amuses me. I like that, I admit I’m a bit perverted, but it amuses me that no one can really trust the water anymore. And the thing I like about it the most is, it means the system is beginning to collapse, and everything is slowly breaking down.

I enjoy chaos and disorder, not just because they help me professionally, they’re also my hobby, you see, I’m an entropy fan. I’m an entropy fan, when I first heard of entropy in high school science I was attracted to it immediately. When they told me that in nature all systems are breaking down, I thought what a good thing, what a good thing, perhaps I can make some small contribution in this area myself.

And of course it’s not just in nature, in this country, the whole social structure just beginning to collapse, you watch, just beginning now to come apart at the edges and the seams. And the thing I like about that, is that it means it makes the news on television more interesting,…

… Just waiting for the ecoli to kick in.
