Just clearing some things up.

by Jan 12

So I saw this image floating around Imgur, and I could not help but sip my tea (Chug my pepsi) and exclaim: "This is but tomfoolery!" (I said "This is fucking bullshit" but in Norwegian so imagine the swedish chef cussing out an overcooked potato.) Why is this bullshit? (Except the epi-pen stuff, that is bullshit) Well open your craniuses and prepare for a dildo of knowledge.

Regarding the wind turbine case. The entire story that started this was not even about someone who built their own wind turbine, you wanna know why? Because it's fucking dangerous, it's like driving next to someone who built their own car, except instead of risking breaking down on the road, a homemade, unregulated windturbine would risk blacking out an entire neighborhood. But now, onto the main story.

(Man in the picture: Jay Nygard) This is one of the pictures used in the many news articals regarding this, can You see what is wrong with it? The wind turbine in question is shown as this cutesy little thing, but is most likely telescopic, and brough down to its lowest level for the picture. In reality the wind turbine was described as nearly 30 FEET TALL. For comparison, see the picture below.

(U-S-A! U-S-A!) Puts things in perspective, doesn't it? Now, apart from the fact that he was basically installing 3 story wind turbine, which also hapened to be only 2 feet from his neighbor's property, when the law requires it to be 5 feet or more, what else could spark this "Personal vendetta" (Yes that is how he put it) against his wind turbine? Well first of all, there are zoning laws in his neighboorhood, and yes, they can be complete bullshit, but guess what, it doesn't matter, they're still laws, and you don't. protest. laws. by. breaking. them. He was required to apply for a permit to install the turbine, which was denied, but guess what, old "Being is so important that I should be granted immunity" McGee still installed the wind turbine. Not only was it big enough to create considerable noise for the nearby neighbors, but many described it as creating a "Strobe light effect" which is INSANELY DANGEROUS FOR PASSING DRIVERS, imagine someone ontop a roof, flickering a something-thousand lumen (Whatever a fucken lumen is) into your eyes as you drove by, feel unsafe yet? Good! You now know what safety inspectors, government officials, and the people in his neighborhood felt like.

(Doesn't comparing everything to Brock Turner make you seem so much better and up to date?) And just to add more truth to this, the key word here is SENTENCED, Jay was sentenced to 6 months in jail, but released a few days later, which seems a mild punishment for illegally instealling a 3 story wind turbine, 2 feet from your neighbor's fence, blocking the view from his windows and posing a serious danger for anyone driving by, If i'm to be honest. Now, onto the famous Rain(water)-Man.

Doesn't it just seem horrible? What kind of world are we living in where the big, evil government will send you to jail just for gathering some rain water!? Actually, we don't live in that world at all! Hooray! However, we do live in the world that contains one Gary Harrington, an Oregon resident who was reported as having been "Just sentenced to prison" for the simple act of collecting rainwater on his property. First of all, if "collecting rainwater" had been illegal, we'd all get sent to jail for leaving a fucking pietin outside when it rained. The article spent "surprisingly" little time regarding the case itself, and focused more on something along the lines of: "Woe is me, I'm a poor person who has government officials who will send me to jail and rape my butt if I try collecting rainwater to be green and help the enviroment" First of all, if you speak like that, ain't noone even going near your butt. Secondly, it's not even illegal to gather rainwater, the only requirements are that the water has come from your roof/drains and is collected in containers that fit the requirements (that part might be wrong but it's 5:30 here and I'm sleepy as fuck.) Then what did this guy do to deserve jail? Oh y'all is gonna love this.

First of all, Gary was not just approached by police out of nowhere and cuffed, the legal battle regarding his case had been going on for ELEVEN YEARS. Secondly, the law he violated was not even regarding the gathering of rainwater, but rather the change of flowing bodies of water. Yeah, you heard me right, this guy was redirecting the flow of fucking rivers and streams near so it would flow to his own property. But why is this such a big problem? Well, normally the water would just kinda spread across the ground, or form another river/stream somewhere else, but this guy had built massive dams, how massive? 2 dams that stood about 10 feet tall, and one that stood at 20 feet tall. The total water collected by these were about 40 acre feet, enough to fill TWENTY OLYMPIC SIZED POOLS. These damns also had docks, boats, and were used for recreational fishing, this guy basically went out of his way to change the entire local ecosystem just so he could fish and not have to drive to the nearest gas station to have a shit, but who cares? He's crying in this picture and holding his head so obviously the evil establishment and politicians are to blame!

So that is my little rant. Now if You excuse me, I need to get to bed for work tommorow. If possible, send boobs (Male boobs count too, cuz why the fuck not.) -Rant over-
