One Of My Very Own

Waste to energy incineration: These plants are all over the USA as well. They are no longer uncommon. Instead of landfilling waste, they landfill the ash. At one time, people all took their trash to the local dump. Then to the local landfilll. Now it goes to a transfer station which sorts recycleables, and sends the household garbage for incineration. But there are issues with incineration as well (Nothing is ever free):
Medical waste can create dioxin
Tires can produce ash laden with metals from the wires in the belting
Construction waste (old homes) can be a source of lead (paint), cadmium and arsenic (treated lumber)

But does the US generate electricity from the incineration?

Speaking of propaganda...



How clever.

This guy is holding the amount of weight he has lost. From 220 lbs to 165 lbs.

Then there's this guy. He went from 468lbs to about 238lbs,  for a total of 230lbs loss.
I doubt that he can even lift the amount he lost. Amazing.
Yet he carried around that much weight every single day.

They sent the pilots into combat without guns - thinking missiles had made guns obsolete. But the North Vietnamese pilots just popped up amidst the F-4s too close for missiles. Understandably the pilots insisted they be given guns.

Yes, that is who you think it is. 


Could that possibly be true?

20 + 20 +20 +60 x =20
20 +5 +5 + 30 y =5
5 - 2times1 = 3, z=1
x+y+z = 26

3(red flower) = 60; red flower = 60/3 = 20
1(red Flower) +2(blue flower = 30 ; 2(blue flower)=10; blue flower = 5
(Blue flower) - 2yellow flower) = 3; -2(yellow flower = -2 ' -yellow flower) = -1 ; yellow flower = 1
Yellow flower + red flower + Blue flower = 26.

Moral of the puzzle: Florists are happier, and symbols are irrelevant.
