Comment on Polafish

Hey, how come the salinity of the stretch of downstream river from a "desalinisation" plants increases? Isn't' a dealinatisation kind of plant used to decrease the salinity of a stretch of water?!I don't have any problem in identifying the one statement that strengthens the argument the most, but I do have this minor problem with how the two premises are connected in the first place.

The desalinization plant isn't there to remove salt from the river, It's there to remove salt from pretzels ("pretzel desalinization plant"). I know there's no such thing as a pretzel desalinization plant (yet!). The term is somewhat tongue-in-cheek. So, once the plant removes the salt from pretzels, it appears that some of the salt is making its way into the river.

Haha, this is a funny one. The silicon valley yuppies are surely working on such an idea and will receive much needed seed funding.
