    it will be water and what or who gets it. I can only hope I live to see the day when live-turf golf courses are outlawed and all of those "cement ponds" in Beverly Hills are filled in.  

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

      Applying for a patent for something, and can't discuss it until the application is in.  

      But all the water conservation in the world won't make a difference if population keeps growing, so at some point we have to just call a halt to the insane mentality of growth.

      The way I put it these days is, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.  The claim that you can get unlimited growth on the surface area of a Euclidean solid is as extraordinary as a claim for perpetual motion.  So where's your proof?"  

      In other words, throw it back in the growthists' faces: it's up to them to prove that growthism is possible, in the same way that it's up to someone who claims to have a perpetual motion machine to prove that it actually works.

        above comment, I was still thinking that the what, 35 golf courses in Las Vegas will someday not only be dead, they'll either be underneath some godawful subdivision or they'll have reverted back to desert.

        I don't understand why people can't see that we cannot grow anymore and must get the numbers down.
