did they have union bodies in them?
Please tell me that Michael Moore was in one of them........please.....make my day.
We have people combing the neighborhoods looking for scrap to sell. Vacant lots are cleaner than they have ever been. Occasionally some idiot goes for a copper theft in a power company’s substation but that seems to be a self-correcting situation. So why are cities strapped for cash dumping all that money in the ocean?
Sorry, he wouldn't fit inside them. They tried. Also, the blubber probably would make it too buoyant.
Sorry to break the news, but Moore is still alive. Saw him on Larry King a while ago and he was pissed. But y’know ... that’s a good thing. It means things aren’t going well for his party.
Mayhap riders were aboard go Tony Soprano! ;-)
Can you just imagine the confusion this is going to cause some future scientists, as they try to figure out how all those subway cars and tanks ended up on the bottom of the ocean.
Buh bye, Jimmy Hoffa!
Proves the Darwin theory, they’ll say!
Yes, they’ll think they found Atlantis at last.
When you throw away a banana peel, it is litter, but when you toss a few tons of metal, synthetics, and plastics into the ocean they call it an artificial reef.
When a politician accepts a lunch with a constituent business owner it is called a bribe if he doesn’t report it and he gets run out of town (if he’s a Republican), but when a politician (Democrat) accepts hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes or buys a house at a $300,000 discount because of a crooked real estate deal, it is okay.
I guess Size Does Matter.
So how are those tire reefs working out for them?
Around my parts, utility poles are being chopped down so the transformer case shatters upon crashing. Then the copper is removed. It’s a Michigan thing.
So why are cities strapped for cash...etc...

That is what is becoming of ships also. “they” figure it is cheaper to sink them than to sell them for salvage...Couple of years ago they were TOWING ships from Norfolk and other East Coast “graveyards” to Europe to be scrapped, with some of them being ‘returned’ because they weren’t clean enough..I also think the companies doing the salvage were getting them delivered for ‘nothing’....
I just went to Cape May this summer on vacation, don’t you just love the Garden State Parkway? Gorgeous!
I wonder what marine life will inhabit these empty trains below?
And I wonder if the ghost of Blackbeard will ever take a gander at these very strange vessels now on his surf, er turf.
Subsidized housing for marine critters, who should have no problem finding a place in their own hood...
Meanwhile, we spend money and energy mining and refining metals that might be recycled more economically. Are we completely daft as a nation?
Don’t think the smaller marine life would want to settle in and make Michael Moore their home. They’re scared of whales.
