Well, if there's so much *good*
in us being "wasted", how about
advocating a return to the days
of at least 'thunder mugs' -
and even promoting composting
toilets instead of wasting all
that good water *and* polluting
by "washing" our excretions
before they go out to sea by
way of sewage treatment plants ?   <g>
