I should have been more clear. The trucks are easy, it's building the second catapult that gets to be a bear.

I am waiting for a cholera outbreak here. I stopped riding a tiny little trail system at the local park due to a proliferation of unburied human feces that drains directly into a popular lake for watersports that has no outlet. At least the RVs that dump shit in the streets goes into the sewer system.
Unless, it is radically different there, the street level storm water drain system is totally different and separate from the sanitary sewer system. Dumping your shit / crap / garbage in the street just gets it washed into the watershed unfiltered and untreated just like normal rain.

That's what happens 'round here. Straight into the creek in the greenbelt.

Spent the day in Seattle. There was loads of drug addled poo to be found. Comparing what I saw in Seattle versus a trip through Portland a few months ago, Portland has more urban campers. In Seattle there was a level of order to it all and in Portland that wasn't the case.

Maybe there's more resources in Seattle to regulate it. I've been avoiding the city for years and was impressed with Bertha's work. The waterfront is looking great with 99 torn down and the train work happening is encouraging.

Doesn’t it rain a bit more in Seattle too?

I seriously think if that happens that could well be it for the American bourgeois. There will just be serfs and feudal lords. That is after all, the future republicans want.

And the stupid thing is the vast vast majority of them would end up serf when their usefulness has past. Surfing down the wrong side of the bell curve.

In our general timeline we don't literally own people via slavery anymore.

Slow stupid history points to progress.







Of course all history points to the end of empires but I'm going to ignore that part for convenience.
