Nah, they just THINK they’re sinking.
Give them some chips and tacos and it should return to normal by morning.

That's what happens when you have almost 40 million people living in a State where large areas of the State consists of desert and semi-arid areas.

Ah yes, the people. That's the problem... it's the added weight of all those additional people flowing in from south of the border!

It’s all those people stomping around that is pounding it lower.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

I have to say our bunch here has really become civilized those last years.

No one has yet asked how to speed up the process.

OK, point taken smile

BTW, that video is over 2 years old and I haven't heard much about it lately, so it maybe it wasn't the crisis they made it out to be.

Isn't that true of a lot of news stories these days? I think the Inquirer must have bought ALL the news outlets secretly.

Its really true.
When it has for example daytime forecast here tomorrow: 77 ~ 86 ℉ / 25 ~ 30 ℃ and sunny, in the dead of winter, its hard to leave!
(Well, if one is not in a fire / floods zone)

It's also what happens when the state refuses to upgrade the state's infrastructure. Our water storage capacity hasn't been seriously upgrade since the 80s.
