Well....... If the U.S. Corps of Engineers allow them to transport all the Wyoming coal they got for cheap, for hundreds of miles along the Columbia River & the Salish Sea(Puget Sound), peabody is telling us they will start spilling coal into those waters, beginning as quickly as they can.

Thirty coal trains derailed in the U.S. in 2012. One coal train derailed in Washington state, about 20miles from the Columbia River. Peabody hopes to improve their accuracy & the number of coal train derailments at the Columbia River & Salish Sea.

Presently, the rail line along the Salish Sea is closed....... because of mudslides that closed the tracks. What an excellent place for a coal train to derail. Everyone taking bets on peabody coal train derailments, needs to place their money on those cliffs south of Everett..... just an excellent place for a quarter mile wide mudslide to take dozens of coal cars into the Salish Sea.

One piece of information tho, that may lower your odds....... two train derailments occurred along those cliffs, pushing train cars into the Salish Sea..... in succeeding days!

Yeah, your take will be low. But that's where your money should ride!

"phudd feces face" has big plans. Tho the bet will make him small change, "phudd feces face" wants to see some splashing coal in the Columbia River & Salish Sea. If he lays off bets on both bodies of water, maybe he'll turn more profit.

You can dunk & dissolve a thousand tons of coal in your families' lifetime supply of drinking & cooking water. Instead of beef or chicken broth, you can cook up lumps of coal in every sauce, & boiling mixture. Instead of salad dressing, texture your salads with coal shavings.... excellent replacement for peppers, seeds & nuts. Grind up some coal in your wine glass for your dinner. Also, continuously burn some coal in a large pit upwind from your house. Your kids will thrive.

Well folks that explains why the "pinheadlitesout" responds with a usual dumb ASSumption answer. Take the advice from the best toss out that coal thing you do it really really isn't good for you.
