Life As I See It

How Much Water Do You Use In A Day?

“I’ve been looking at the water bill. You know we use 5300 gallons of water in one month.”

“Really..”

“That’s like 175 gallons a day.”

“Hm…”

“Do you know how much 175 gallons is?”

“Hm…”

“Where does it all go? An average shower uses 15 gallons. It says so on the hot water heater and there is five of us so that’s 75 gallons. Where does the rest go?”

“Dunno…”

“Its gotta to be going somewhere. Do you know how much that is?”

“Uh huh…”

“Stop reading and listen to me.”

“Well, you have the dish washer, the washing machine and don’t forget the water that constantly runs when I do the dishes that don’t get put in the dishwasher. Oh yeah and don’t forget the gallon of water I take with me to work everyday.”

“But that’s a lot of fucking water. Do you know how much 175 gallons is?”

“Um…one gallon less than 176?”

    Você não deve molhar o gramado.

    Você provavelmente não está fazendo mal, lá na Cidade do Amor Fraterno, a apenas 175 galões / pessoa / dia.

    Pode-se suspeitar que haveria menos amor se todos lavados com menor freqüência e moravam juntos embalados, a água racionada para o povo comum. Como bem sabem os seus vizinhos? Quem, dentre eles está o pomo da água, que vai transformá-lo em Obras Públicas para se ver que sua cota superior Greenie ditado? Pelo menos você começa chuvas de verão ocasionalmente. Você logo aprender a evitar a paixão homem branco para todo o frescor que quando você passar por uma seca com um marginal e assim medir sua taxa de bombeamento diário travando o fluxo do poço em um par de baldes antes do pontapé de saída da bomba.

    Não como o governo baixa flush ditadas banho? Nem eu Tente usar uma latrina buraco no quintal.

    Eu vasculhar o país em busca de tronos porcelana antiga para salvamento e recondicionar, gosto do luxo de 5 galões meu flush. Há um próspero mercado negro de vasos antigos. Você sabia que? Logo estaremos importando-os do México, eu suspeito. Escondido na barriga de um caminhão transportando produzir erva fresca até o serviço de procura na economia pote recentemente legalizada. contrabandistas Same, contrabandear diferente.

    Cheer up, Cappie. Em um ambiente de aquecimento global, não haverá mais chuvas para reabastecer seus reservatórios. É só se os aquecedores estão erradas, e o mundo começa a esfriar um pouco, que a seca vai prevalecer. Então você tem que considerar duchas semanais.

    Apenas me deixe água suficiente para o meu café.

    You must not water the lawn.

    You’re probably not doing badly, there in the City of Brotherly Love, at only 175 gal/person/day.

    One might suspect there’d be less love if everyone washed less frequently and lived packed together, water rationed for the common folk. How well do you know your neighbors? Who among them is the water snitch, who’ll turn you in to Public Works if they see you exceeding your Greenie dictated allotment? At least you get summer rains occasionally. You soon learn to eschew the white man’s passion for all that freshness when you live through a drought with a marginal well and measure your daily pumping rate by catching the flow from the well in a couple of buckets before the pump kicks off.

    Don’t like the low flush government dictated toilets? Neither do I. Try using a pit privy in the back yard.

    I scour the country looking for old porcelain thrones to salvage and recondition, liking the luxury of my 5 gallon flush. There’s a thriving black market for old toilets. Did you know that? We’ll soon be importing them from Mexico, I suspect. Hidden in the belly of a produce truck hauling fresh weed up to service the demand in the newly legalized pot economy. Same smugglers, different smuggle.

    Cheer up, Cappie. In a global warming environment, there’ll be more rains to replenish your reservoirs. It’s only if the warmers are wrong, and the globe begins to cool a bit, that drought will prevail. Then you’ll have to consider weekly showers.

    Just leave me enough water for my coffee.

    3 1/2 fifty gallon drums you moron.
    Move to Oregon and shut the fuck up.
    You forgot to mention your hourly enemas

  3. I’m moving to Hawaii and using all your water. How about that for telling me to shut the fuck up. I will be your worst nightmare. And you’ll like it.

  4. Ant, I probably use half the water flushing the toilet. I forgot about that. I pee like every half hour.

    Other than Atom Ant I’ve never known ants to use toilets.
    And it would be a very very small toilet to boot.
    You could always squat on your garden, sell it to Michelle Obama as organic and an act of water preservation so she’ll use it in the white house kitchen.

    Wanna see something really funny reflecting just how stupid and programable these enviro freaks are ?
