California Is Full Of Sh*t

By Wyatt Earp | September 24, 2009

Ventura County fireYeah, I realize that it’s a pretty harsh thing to say, but it is true I tell you! California is truly full of crap, and that crap is threatening to destroy the entire state.

Don’t believe it?

You will after you check out this story that Code Monkey sent me:

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said a 1,500-acre wildfire threatening homes in Moorpark started through “manure spontaneous combustion from a local ranch.”

Officials did not disclose exactly where the fire started or how. But spontaneous manure fires are fairly common in farm communities, often occurring during conditions of extreme heat. Temperatures around where today’s fire started near Fillmore topped 100 degrees.

In 2005, it took months to fully contain a manure fire that broke out at a feed lot near Lincoln, Neb. A man was killed earlier this year in Texas on a fire later blamed in part on animal waste placed in bags in a truck. (H/TLA Times)

See? I told ya.

    That is why manure is supposed to cool before shoveling it and when it is shoveled, it is supposed to sit longer before bagging it. If it is not going to be bagged, spread it across the garden or spread it in a field. Piling (or bagging) is the problem. Methane is flammable.

    You have solved the mystery of spontaneous human combustion Wyatt. Some people must be full of it.

    I don’t know. If what you say is true, the State Capitol would have burst into flames long ago.

    I have actually fought a few manure fires. It was a crappy experience. No sh*t.

    That darn methane gas will get ya every time. Wonder if there was some cow out there with a lighter trying to get flaming flatulence? Quite a visual.

    Fires start by spontaneous combustion. It is the fact that we no longer burn off the excess brush in controlled fires that cause large fires to burn out of control. Have a couple of wet years in a row and California will burn damn near to the ground. MUD
