  • Nobody likes to have to manipulate a faucet first thing in the mkrning

    WASHINGTON—The Environmental Protection Agency launched a major new ad campaign Monday encouraging people to conserve resources by turning off their showers when they’re not showering. “We estimate that Americans waste up to 20 billion gallons of water each week by leaving their bathrooms with the shower still on, heading off to a full day’s work followed by a full night’s sleep, and then waking up the next morning to step into an already running shower,” administrator Lisa P. Jackson said of the EPA’s advertising effort, which includes TV spots that touts the benefits of turning showers off, such as not having a steamed-over bathroom mirror and not running out of hot water. “Nobody likes the inconvenience of having to manipulate a faucet first thing in the morning, of course, but we want to show people how the pluses of not leaving the water running all the time really can outweigh the negatives.” If the ads are a success, the EPA plans to launch a follow-up campaign in the spring urging people to conserve fuel by turning off their car engines when they return home for the night.

      You don't? Makes it so much easier to get to sleep each night with the sound of gently running water from the next room.

        it would stop the pipes freezing up and keep the house humidified though i guess.
        Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

        when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

          Um, seriously? Wow.

          At least the Poms only bathe once a week which must be a terrific water saver. Maybe they could start that campaign in the USA.

                      News just in

                      An American man choked to death after downing dozens of live cockroaches during a contest in which the grand prize was a python.

                      Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach died as a result of "asphyxia due to choking and aspiration of gastric contents", according to the report released by the Broward County medical examiner's office.

                      Lab tests for drugs came back negative. The death has been ruled an accident.

                      Archbold died after downing the bugs as well as worms in October for the contest at a reptile store north of Miami.

                      Archbold became ill shortly after the contest and collapsed in front of the store. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
