    Until the building safety inspector walks up and asks: "where's your plans and permits?"

    Yes, if there is one thing we can have faith in, it is that Humanity really knows how to dig a hole for itself... :pompous:

    I can't seem to find out whether they filled it back up or what.

    Unfortunately, you just can't dig a big hole anywhere. There are too many local, state and federal agencies that either want to prevent you form doing it, or want a cut of the pie.

    All the more reason to fill it back up before it's too late!

    "Hole, what hole? That thing on the internet? All CGI." :cool:

    The EPA fines are what'll get you. They assess fines per day. Retroactive.

    They should just claim they were fracking, then they'd be golden.

    Yeah, but, that would put them in a position where they would need to raise money to pay bribes.

    No, they could get away with it if they're in with the power brokers in the State...

    No, no, that's already been taken care of. IIRC, Dick Cheney and his Halliburton buddies worked it so there's an exemption for fracking in the Environmental Protection Act. Not only is it allowed, they don't even have to disclose what chemicals they're pumping into the ground. Frack away, mateys!! :muted: :hungover: :greedy:

    Someone figured out it was in Illinois somewhere, so yeah.

    It used to be that "greasing palms" was covert. Today? not so much. It's right out in the open for anyone that cares enough to look. Google: "manufacturing consent"

    What is this?
    This is our holiday promotion, Cards Against Humanity Saves America. You’ll pay us
    $15 right now, and we’ll send you six surprises in December.
    What are the six surprises?
    The nature of a surprise is that it surprises you when it occurs.

    What are you saving America from?
    Injustice, lies, racism, the whole enchilada.

    You said you weren’t going to do one of these complicated holiday promotions again.
    We’re liars, just like the president.

    I don’t like that you’re getting political. Why don’t you just stick to card games?
    Why don’t you stick to seeing how many Hot Wheels cars you can fit up your asshole?​

    https://www.originalprongles.com/

    • Is this whole thing for real?
      Absolutely! You can buy Prongles right here on this website and at retailers nationwide.
    • Didn’t you guys just launch a huge holiday promotion called Cards Against Humanity Saves America?
      We don’t do that kind of stuff anymore.
    • Why are you doing this?
      Our research shows that the snack food industry is bigger and more profitable than the board games industry.
    :rofl2:

    The thing is....people will probably send money, and lots of it.

    They way I took that was they sold out of the six-surprise-saving-America stuff and pivoted to the Prongle chip thing.--> ETA: They bought land along the Mexican border so a wall couldn't be built on it without significant imminent domain wrangling.

    My understanding is that the company has used these windfalls to pay everyone xmas bonuses, but I'd have to doublecheck that.--> ETA: At least one year they did.

    What's an X-mas bonus? I've never seen one over a couple hundred bucks.
