Man, you missed out on some burger pictures. I'll do you one better, here's my album.
I doubt they're walking.
We are happy that you all enjoyed lunch! Thank you!
Damn, that shit was so good. I can't wait to eat my leftovers for lunch.
While the councilman may be goofy, there are legitimate concerns with "smart meters", particularly their use of unencrypted data:
"After signing up with the German smart-meter firm Discovergy, the researchers detected that the company's devices transmitted unencrypted data from the home devices back to the company's servers over an insecure link. The researchers, Dario Carluccio and Stephan Brinkhaus, intercepted the supposedly confidential and sensitive information, and, based on the fingerprint of power usage, were able to tell not only whether or not the homeowners were home, away or even sleeping, but also what movie they were watching on TV."
I think the Flyer's readership would have been better served by looking more into the privacy implications of smart meters rather than using the issue to shoot fish in a barrel by making fun of a local pol.
Living across the pond here in England we cannot envisiage the Elvis vigil and the whole effect it has on the world, people from all over the world all ages for one man an Icon in the music world breaking down many barriers in his life, he changed the world and has brought such happieness an love to the world Tupelo, Memphis should be proud .
Apparantly, the meters are smarter than Councilman Brown. Under the Communist model, the government would subsidize the entire cost of providing utility service and no one would get a monthly utility bill, correct? Seems like this could be accomplished without a meter at all, much less a "smart one".
Oh, the first was for Beifuss, we all get old. He wouldn't remember me at the the Mall of Memphis Skating rink. Oddest dude I have ever saw in public, an inspiration. Rock on.
Great pics, thanks guy's I will never be a twit- erer, but maybe, I'll make the next one.
Furgiveness asked. It was the Joey.
What you doin'?
Dude, what happened to the HAIR?
1.) The Barf Pit.
2.) I gave Harrah's my paycheck for this crap meal Cafe.
4.) Aunt Jemimiah's whorehouse.
5.) Burt Reynolds "Choke and Puke" Bistro (from Smokey and the Bandit)
6.) F@G's (Flactulance and Gas) Diner.
So, where's the blight? The house is fine and the yard and the shrubs don't appear to be a blight. The fact that he's got a garden, and that's he's gotten some kids off the street and is actually teaching them, intellectually and socially, should earn him an award, not a legal problem. God bless him, more people should follow his example.
How sad especially in this economy, these people are attempting to do things that are good for our planet. From what I see in these pictures I feel that they should be able to continue on with their pursuits. Leave them alone.
Well everybody..... Just be Americans.... stop the talking ..... and just DO IT !
EVERYBODY PLANT A GARDEN in Support for the "Harrassed" and YOURSELVES !
If Every VOTER is gardening (like in the "Old Days") then the Politicians will start also, just to stay "In" and revoted. Or not ?
This is, of course, a product of our capitalist legal system. Homes are supposed to be unproductive places of pure consumption. If individuals are able to make their homes productive then they would be less reliant on corporations, and "we" wouldn't want that now would we? This all goes back to zoning practices that began being pushed at the turn of the 20th century by corporations and well off local heavyweights under the guise of "community standards"...
Most of the boxes you see in these pictures are not bee hives. They are worm boxes.
Hey everone in Memphis - get out there and generate complaints - Everyone - go to this neighborhood (or any) in Memphis, write down a house number and find something you don't like about it and call it in as a complaint. Generate a 1000 complaints this weekend!!! How about someone with a perfect lawn with 2 inch blades of grass and no weeds - the toxic chemicals (herbicides) used for such a lawn are certainly a nuisance! How about someone with ugly shrubs???
COMPLAIN MEMPHIS, COMPLAIN!!!
