I take wood from the IL river which is all of Chicagos poop water flowing South If you boil it first it should be fine.

Yes, I think its the background. It shows up mostly blue in pics but its mostly white in person. I always have to adjust the color on those pics. I have several extra backgrouds around here so it will be an easy fix......if I ever get off the computer

Yes! Win! The only place I've seen it being sold is on the aquaforest website but they have a minimum order of $50 before they will ship live plants and IDK what I would buy other than that.

Maybe I will do that. I don't really see much on the beaches of the lake though. I think this weekend I am gonna go hunt some down at the little ponds in the burbs.

Lol. Poop water.

so next time you take a big dump cable, you can think of how it will be travelling by chads house. maybe you could leave a message on it.

i actually thought most of the waste water was pumped into lake michigan from the offshore treatment things that you can see while driving down LSD.


edit: a quick google told me it no longer is pumped into the lake but the the shipping canal into the des plaines.

ROFL!!!! Wait till Sara sees this. Lol.

I have a silver marker, I could write something on it.

It used to be, but you are right. That is why I will never go in the Cal Sag. I don't see how people can swim and boat in that mess.

This is a moment when women call men "boys." That is all.
