    Now I can tell my wife I'm just conservating

    http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.co...-by-urination/

    According to the Brazilian environmental organization SOS Mata Atlantica, a household that flushes its toilet one less time per day saves more than 1,100 gallons of water per year. So the organization has launched a TV ad campaign encouraging Brazilians to avoid a flush by peeing in the shower. The ad shows cartoons of everyone — from aliens to King Kong — urinating in the shower and ends with the slogan: “Pee in the shower! Save the Atlantic rainforest!” (Hmm: another Pareto improvement?)

    So my old neighbor wasn't being a drunk jerk when he yelled at his 5 year old to just pee in the bushes at their house, he was preserving Gaia.

    So, if I may talk about such indelicate things...

    Does shower water drainage eventually go into the same sewer lines as toilet water? Does it really not matter what receptacle you pee into inside the house? Besides the sanitation of said receptacle?

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I think this topic was covered in a Seinfeld episode.

    Jerry: "Do those medical journals say anything about standing in a puddle of someone else's urine?"
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Useful rhyme, I'd constantly forget without it.
