Excellent , I'm applying for mineral rights and a planning permission for a pipeline through it. His pristine dahlias are in for some shock and his two white dogs will have to find an ice flow to live on cause I'm surely trashing their Eco-system

I wonder do I need an nuclear ice breaker , seems de-rigour for this sort of thing , would they have one in B&Q, ? , would it need much parking space , I only have one resident parking disc !

I noticed a company called Haliburton seems to be good at this stuff , I have 500 quid to spend , so I've just emailed them for a detailed 30 page quote , and the option to provide the ice breaker as I can't seem to find it in my local hardware shop after all

The only problem is my neighbour on the other side now has planted a flag on this ground as well. I can foresee problems , that could take at least three pints of IPA to resolve. My friends suggests I might need a " naval task force " , whatever that is and a " show of force " , so I've rolled up my shirt sleeves while walking around , that'll show him.

If this is what we are discussing it was done in 1988 and the rest of the world followed suit.

But I heard that National Park Sevice is mad that they didn't get a permit to go off roading and that the EPA is going send them a big fine if they don't take their trash away with them when they leave

Nah, much easier to just use the canned answers to the canned denier claims:

Hint: Anything that has to call itself Real Science is almost guaranteed to be quackery.

If you're so worried about "global warming" what are you doing in low latitudes and heading South??? Why not use all that 'info' and go North so you don't get baked to death?
