Or is it just me?


Perhaps the foscheck is making the peeps in california lose their minds?

Many people claim that the fertilizer they spray on fires is harmful to the environment and that could be true in many cases.

I am wondering if perhaps it is not prudent to spread retardation in an electric universe world we may be living in.

Really i wonder why not just water or is such choice just a product of the use of retardant.

In that case i ask is it too late?

Fire retardant works differently than water. It's not designed to necessarily extinguish the fire, but direct it. Water boils off as steam and then it's like nothing was dropped at all. Retardant doesn't.

Californians make me laugh. They're afraid of their own shadows. I read an article yesterday where the Forest Service was appealing to the CA government to allow them to use the same retardant they use everywhere else on the massive fires in CA right now. The concoction they are using is far less effective (because it's mostly water). They're losing the battles against the fires as a result. Okay...burn everything in sight for miles, pollute the air with toxic chemicals from burning plastics, but DON'T use fire retardent because it might make us sick 50 years from now! LOL!! (face palm).

Speak of tha devil


Bacteriophage Virus A bacteriophage, also known informally as a phage, is a virus that infects and replicates within Bacteria and Archaea. The term was derived from "bacteria" and the Greek φαγεῖν, "to devour". Wikipedia

Funny you say that.

There is actually mandatory fire retardant in all furniture cushions per state law in California.

Since they are such a large market, manufacturers found it was easier and didn't cost too much more to just include it in all cushions.

They dont use water because the heat causes it to evaporate before reaching the ground and large fires. Water is mostly used to contain a fire but hitting the outskirts of the fire.

Now who you calling s retardant moron.

I googled foscheck to see what was in it and noticed some articles about how it builds up in the body and is toxic. Didn't immediately see how it made you dumber. I just hope this kind of info doesn't go viral. You have only to watch a few videos of kids eating tide pods to realize this is already the dumbest generation in years - maybe ever. Who knows what they would do if they got their hands on any of this foscheck.

Right?!?! The only thing dumber I could think of is if they ate paint chips! Unfathomable.

You're off the mark here! The flame retardant that is harmful is in the food you eat now and in plastics and kid's toys NOT what's being dumped from the sky to put out forest fires.



In a new study of popular products purchased from grocery stores in Dallas, Texas, researchers found that nearly half of the sampled peanut butter and cold cuts, as well as turkey, fish, beef and other fatty foods, contained traces of a flame retardant commonly used in the foam insulation of building walls.

Measures to remove these chemicals:


Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee in March signed a bill into law that will phase out perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAs, in food packaging such as popcorn bags and burger wrappers.

The law, introduced by Democratic Rep. Joan McBride, requires that starting in January 2022, every food product sold in Washington — whether it be at fast-food restaurants, grocery stores, or any other retailer — must be packaged in materials that do not include perfluorinated chemicals. The state's department of ecology will have to determine by January 2020 if a safer alternative can be found or if it needs to keep searching.

You would have to have way WAY more of that stuff to match the stupidity coming out people now days.


I think the big problem is , were so protected, Darwins law no longer is in effect, therefore stupid just breeds more stupid, and as time goes on, it ends up being just being a huge part of the population that quite literally cant think critically, cant understand the most simple concepts, much less abstract ones, and evade common sense at all costs.

Basically were breeding ourselves into idiots.

If i did think this stuff could be effecting peoples then i would not necessarily believe that it is because we are ingesting it. One thought i have is that we have unseen links to the land itself and that perhaps the healthier the land is the more clearer our minds are. So not any link that we can see or even litigate but it would take a leap of faith to even believe this could happen. electric universe

This is tha games the debol plays

think about it fertilizer makes things grow

Just as one user pointed out there is a reason they want to thicken the water to be more effective in putting out the fire but industrial fertilizer has been a big problem ever since the 40's we have seen these folks search for ways to dispose of the toxic biproducts like the use of fluoride and such.

They could easily just mix a bit of clay or other safe products and achieve the same results.

This sentence doesnt even make sense, if you did think that it was, then how could you not believe it? Also, if you didnt believe it was, then why would you think it is?

yeah, its called balance




So not any link that we can see or even litigate but it would take a leap of faith to even believe this could happen.


Again word soup, what does this even mean? Also "Litigate" does not even fit in this word soup.

What? is this a sentence?

They arent dumping fertilizer or or flouride on fires, so again, this has no bearing on the topic.

No, no they couldnt, its not even close to the same thing for fire suppression, its fun to pretend you know things huh?

Dumb to go all msm.

None of your phonetical dump is relevant and none of it is even a tiny attempt at understanding.

I do not respond well to piles of crap.

It is too bad you can not choose to communicate in a logical manner instead of a divisive manner cause i would love to answer any legit questions you have and you should know i am only theorizing here but you wanna take my words and try to demonize me with them. We are not playing gotcha.
