    Now I know the special diet behind the chemical process within cows that let them produce milk.

    Sounds amazing. Can we get bathroom lights that stay on a little longer?

    Or better yet, a bathroom structure that incorporates this new concept thingie called a "window".
    It's a pretty wild invention actually, and I don't believe that many are familiar with it.
    What it does is basically takes a wall that has no passage for light or ventilation, and puts a hole in it so that both light and air can go through it.
    The usage is a bit limited and might not work for a bathroom structure that stands in the sun all day and suffers from severe lack of ventilation, but sometimes you gotta gamble on that wild card and just put some holes in the wall.

    Dude we so wish it was that easy. Or to take care of it with a BB gun. The problem is that since a GKR was found, it subjects the land to being part of an "endangered habitat". This is where it takes the time and $$$$$$$$$ lots of $$$$$$$ once we figure out what Fish and Wildlife says we must do.

    The pooping in Buttonwillow cartoon makes me laugh every time. If you have been here recently, you may have noticed the motion sensors are gone and have been replaced with a standard switch. Many people are still learning to turn them off when leaving.... I spend some time before I go home at night turning most lights off. :head scratch:
    But hey, at least people can see while pooping now
    In all seriousness, we would love to rebuild the restrooms, they were after all the first structures built 20+ years ago. If we had a clean sheet of paper, they would be different with maybe a window or 2

    The restroom design plans were approved by an open cockpit driver. They never think about windows.....

    Wow that is some very exciting news about the track expansion. Will it for sure have links to the current Buttonwillow track to create a supertrack like Thunderhill's Thunderschleife?

    Really unfortunate about the endangered rat. I normally side with environmental issues but somehow the world seems a better place without rats lol. They spread the plague after all.

    Well, it's good on you guys that you reported it. I think everyone realizes that jokes aside, without some care for the environment we won't be able to race. Always helps to try to preserve what little of endangered species can be saved.

    The question is- did the state or the local gov't mention anything about buying back the land / exchanging for another 185 acre strip if the GKR's end up staying?
