    I was messing around because you are always asking other people for the data. The data. The data. The sky is blue. I want to see the data on that, lol. Take the finger out of your vagaga. You have to be able to laugh at yourself sometimes.

    Here's what I say. Who gives a crap what the tests say? We all know pollution is a real issue, anywhere in the world. We can't say any one area doesn't have it, cause humans are filthy creatures, and humans are everywhere. Let's just all agree to be less filthy humans and encourage everybody around us to be less filthy, and maybe as a result things will imrprove some. Maybe...

    In Brews defense, ALL Engineers want to see the DATA. It's what they do. They analyze data. He's just doing what he's been trained to do. I talk to engineers all day long, and they all want is the data. It's just their nature.

    Ya really. Thus my dislike of the star system. I also ask because I don't have a background in this sort of testing, and it would be nice to know what the "standard" is when looking at water test results. My guess is that the national standard still shows plenty of EColi and other fun bugs.
