Your comment reminds me of a Ron White-ism:

That much forced air means Ron's cigar burns down to a stub in ten seconds. Impairing his enjoyment.

The flood water and all the shit it carries with it, is not just a figure of speech. Virtually all floods are contaminated with fecal matter from multiple species. But there's two types of floods, first, the rising water that submerges everything then recedes to expose a soggy contaminated world. The other is the rampaging flood which destroys everything in its path with unimaginable force and violence leaving in its wake contaminated rubble. The thing they have in common is shitty water.

Shit isn't the danger, it dries out and can be cleaned up. The danger is shit is food, wonderful nutritious food for things we don't want to feed. Nasty, deadly things we compete with every day for domination.

She was laughing from happiness that you told her because up to that point she had no idea what I was doing. She doesn't like that.

In Australia, it is crocodiles and exotic poisonous snakes. What are a few (trillion) tiny bacteria compared to that?

How wide (kilometers) are resulting flood plains?

I'm sure that as the good people of Shropshire and Worcestershire trudge through a toxic soup of sewage, farm animal slurry, agricultural chemicals, oil and petrol, at the forefront of their minds will be the marked absence of crocodiles swimming down the High Street and black mambas in the basement.

Where the Australians failed, the British succeeded by making their flood waters too toxic for crocodiles and exotic poisonous snakes to inhabit. A feather in their cap. Every cloud has a silver lining.

Nonsense, Mambas don't move to the basement for nobody, they'll take the master bedroom thank you very much, you go argue with the Gators over the basement.

The first 4 mambas aren't a problem, it's Mamba #5 you have to watch out for...

Flooding in Snaith, East Yorkshire.


According to a report on the radio this morning, the occupants of this bungalow expect to have to demolish their home.

According to the Met Office, we should have some respite from the rain this week, but how long it will take for the flood waters to subside is anyone's guess.
