    Drinking water isn’t that scarce in the uk, is it?

    Monarch don’t charge for taking car seats, they also give you an extra 10 kilos if you have a baby on your lap ๐Ÿ™‚

    Surely if you have scarce drinking water you should save it for doing the dishes or something? Chucking it in the cistern in order to flush the crapper seems a bit blase.

    Yes, often it is, why do you think we have hosepipe bans…just for fun? ๐Ÿ™„

    We need a grey water setup like what them Frenchies gone done got. The incompetence of the water authorities in the UK is staggering.

    Why people press two butons to type “@”
    When the same number of key hits will give you “at”

    Similarly – why do we have to say “doubleyoo doubleyoo doubleyoo” and use 9 syllables as an abbreviation for “world wide web” which uses three?

    no it isn’t..

    When was the last time you (or anyone in the UK) had a problem getting drinking water due to it being scarce ?

    why do you think we have hosepipe bans

    So drinking water isn’t scarce.

    This sort of incident (which occur for a variety of reasons but usually related to lack of investment and maintenance) is narrowly avoided a lot more often than you might imagine. Because it’s avoided by desperate last minute scrambling you just don’t get to hear about it.

    This sort of incident……etc

    Does nothing to show that “drinking water is scarce”

    It just means that the delivery method fails occasionally. The product is still available.

    Why do phone and calculators have their number pads laid out completely differently

    Calculator keypads came from mechanical adding machines which usually, because of how the carry function works, have the 9 at the top. Phone keypads came from rotary dial phones which sort-of have 123 at the top and 789 at the bottom.

    Aren’t most of the UK water companies owned by the frenchies now?

    As SST said most of our water companies owned by the French!

    That’s because we don’t have water authorities any more. Their job was to make sure we had a good water supply. Now we have water companies – their job is to make money for their shareholders.

    Ditto electricity, ditto railways. Roads will be next.

    Nobody is saying you need to flush your loo with drinking water. Sort yourself a tank and stop doing it if it bothers you that much. My house came with a collection system built in from new.

    Oh and for the OP, try http://www.bubblebum.co/ inflatable car seat if your kid is big enough.

    Why people type(sp)after a misspelt word instead of relying on autocorrect, or right clicking and “Search Google for …” to check the spelling.

    Ironically, autocorrect tries to autocorrect both “autocorrect” and “misspelt”

    Why,when 17 mtb’rs walk into the pub which is packed does the gaffer sit on his ar8e and watch the barman struggle to cope.

    That’s not fair. NI Water have had to deal a terribly under-invested infrastructure compared to the rest of the UK and that was a result of pipe bursts. Nothing to do with availability of drinking water.

    You want they should send two pipes to your house?

    Anyone who doesn’t like using drinking water to flush the bog should capture their own grey water and send it to the toilet. It’s not the water companies fault, it’s yours.

    But if I stop using drinking water to flush the bog, I won’t be able to drink out of the toilet any more.

    When I posted last night I had had a few beers and broke my own rule about not getting into arguments on the internet as experience has shown it’s a complete waste of time.
    Greybeard – error on my part to refer to them as water authorities and 100% agreement about water companies being shareholder driven. IMO all utility firms should be operated for the benefit of the citizens, privatisation was a huge mistake.
    Some people seem to be confused about potable water and raw water. The availability of raw water may be sufficient but the infrastructure to treat it (and store it) and provide potable water is not exactly robust in many areas. Statements about providing your own grey water tank won’t change the fact that without financial incentive the vast majority won’t bother. A few conscientious bearded STW types doing so is pretty much irrelevant in the big scheme of things. Inclusion in new builds is a good idea but new builds to this standard still make up a very small percentage of UK housing stock (this is a guess, CBA to search for a link to support)
    Anyway, I work in the water treatment and supply industry so I’m not going to jeopardise my job by posting any first hand experiences on here. And I can’t be bothered anyway, I’ve surprised myself by typing this much. Night!

    One s in desert – you pudding.

    Why people without kids are uppity and intolerant of those who do have kids. No-one could argue that stopping having kids isn’t a threat to human existence. Having kids is piggin hard work and will keep the world going for your retirement.

    Grown men wearing croc shoes. I just don’t get it, it makes no sense to me.

    I mean you think their partner would say ‘Really? You’re going out with those on?’

    Crocs are ideal warm wet casual footwear. Ideal camp site shoes.

    If you do a poo in the cistern then the water’s no longer drinkable.

    Hey, my wife actually bought me a pair of crocs the other day for my birthday. They did come with a warning that I could only wear them when swimming (to and from the sea) and general mincing around faffery and the there were no circumstances where wearing them in public proper would be acceptable. I plan on breaking the rule – dead comfy for slobbing. Like slippers for outdoors. I also got my first ever pair of actual slippers for the same birthday (41) – clearly on the downward slope!

    Things that don’t make sense – fruit in food. They put grapes and apricots in the salad at work mixed in with the cucumber, green leaves and grated carrot. Can’t get my head around it.

    convert – cucumber is a fruit, so is a tomato.

    having said that, a wise man knows not to put them in a fruit salad ๐Ÿ™‚

    If it’s digital, there’s no vernier scale.

    POSTED 1 WEEK AGO # REPORT-POST

    As long as they aren’t making any money (I think they are mostly given away for free) the record cos turn a blind eye

    At some point they will probably decide they care enough to take someone to court and people will stop making them
