The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Hey Pyrrho, do you know about Linndale, the "speed trap masquerading as a town"?

It's in Cuyahoga County so I figure maybe you've heard about it. Was recently featured on This American Life.

So all of this was because you didn't like well water?

Since the construction of new sewer lines, the well water is no longer potable. The contractors cut into the acquifer.

I gotta admire that you ran the connection yourself but you should really find the engineer that fucked up your well and have a talk with him.

I will call them up and give them a good talking to.

615 mg/L total dissolved solids

24.65 mg/L Calcium
1.11 mg/L Iron
0.27 mg/L Manganese

Good for what ails you.

No chlorine or fluoride, though, so my precious bodily fluids will now have to take their chances.
