My co-worked brought this up today and I was like this has to be satire. Sadly it’s not.

What in the world is this crap?! This is what 23 year olds thing of? This country is in a world of poo if these are the future leaders of America. I can’t wait to get off this continent.

Berkeley-

The new and only acceptable use of manhole cover is when in public transportation, if men wish to man spread, they must wear an apron, or manhole cover.


I would LOVE to go there and sell men's underwear under the brand, "ManHole Covers".

Far canal man, this is getting ridiculous beyond measure. As if some #wit wanting to change the name of manhole is going to stop folks from calling it a #ing manhole.

Unbelievable!!

You know, and I could be wrong, but I don't think I've ever seen a woman go down into the sewers to perform maintenance of any kind.

Pretty soon we will be able to see through people because their skin is getting so thin.

Fyi people..

Make sure you set your explicit search terms to preschooler before you search this topic.
The results can get a little hairy if you don't.

Exactly.
When I think of the name Berkeley, I think of a 6’5 man, with Half his ear missing from a pit bull attack.
(An idiot I know named Berkeley)
Therefore I’m offended by that gender specific name.

Hell I better get myself a gender neutral haircut soon.
I don’t want to get #metoo’d

He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don't know what you're missing
Nowhere man, the world is at your command
He's as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere man, can you see me at all
Nowhere man don't worry
Take your time, don't hurry
Leave it all 'til somebody else
Lends you a hand
Ah, la, la, la, la
Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don't know what you're missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
Ah, la, la, la, la
He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

Between the iron gates of fate,
The seeds of time were sown,
And watered by the deeds of those
Who know and who are known;
Knowledge is a deadly friend
If no one sets the rules
The fate of all mankind I see
Is in the hands of fools

youtu.be...



Confusion be my epitaph

No less, here is the cities namesake.



A convinced adherent of Christianity, Berkeley believed God to be present as an immediate cause of all our experiences. He did not evade the question of the external source of the diversity of the sense data at the disposal of the human individual. He strove simply to show that the causes of sensations could not be things, because what we called things, and considered without grounds to be something different from our sensations, were built up wholly from sensations. There must consequently be some other external source of the inexhaustible diversity of sensations. The source of our sensations, Berkeley concluded, could only be God; He gave them to man, who had to see in them signs and symbols that carried God's word.[20] Here is Berkeley's proof of the existence of God: Whatever power I may have over my own thoughts, I find the ideas actually perceived by Sense have not a like dependence on my will. When in broad daylight I open my eyes, it is not in my power to choose whether I shall see or no, or to determine what particular objects shall present themselves to my view; and so likewise as to the hearing and other senses; the ideas imprinted on them are not creatures of my will. There is therefore some other Will or Spirit that produces them. (Berkeley. Principles #29)

The whole city belongs to God, how ironic.
