BBC.com has a video of an unbelievable fish farm right in the middle of the desert. It uses clean salt water that was found in an aquifer a couple hundred meters deep.

The fish are sea bass and the farm makes a fortune exporting to Europe. The water is cleaner than any ocean and all waste water is used to grow salt tolerant plants.

Very good use of all natural resources proving that it can be done. Good vid.

Hap... Buddy...

If you are going to continue sharing stuff like this with the forum, here is what you do:

1. While you are reading the story click your cursor in the address bar of your browser.

2. Hold down the "Ctrl" button on your keyboard and hit the letter "A". This selects the entire address of the article, story, etc...

3. Then while still holding down the "Ctrl" button hit the letter "C". This copies that address to the virtual clipboard in your computer.

4. Then browse over the the forum and post your impressions of said article and at the appropriate point in your post, select a clean space in the post and hold down the "Ctrl" key and hit the letter "V". This will post a link to the story into your post.

The whole process take about a half a second once you get the hang of it.

Be patient with HAP. He's still getting used to using a phonograph.

Whay to much work for an old man's feeble mind.

Well hell, I thought you were holding me up for money like any old blackmailer. I am about 185 miles away. When they get her up and going come on. We have the room and besides we got Jonks room all cleaned and ready to use again.

You're invited if you don't blackmail me for that slight old age admission I made.:D

HAP is easy to blackmail. He actually thought Mark and I were starting a bar.

Hey, go easy on the old guy. He's probably exhausted from shoveling the coal to keep the steam up in his computer.

I don't believe you uncleal. HAP has a very efficient computer that only needs one hop of coal per month; no extraneous shovelling required.

Folks, I really have to admit to having stretched the truth about the old computer. It runs on gas and the addition of grain corn alcohol has clogged the carbs something fierce but still is faster than the coal powered one.

Lefty. Did you and Mark scam me????

Joe. All I have left for folks to ride is a 1948 Triumph 150 Terrier. It is a 4 stroke though.
