Women don't understand passion for soccer :roll:

Las Mujeres nunca entenderan el futbol
Interesting take there, considering what they say:

"Football (soccer) players are the third sex. They're not women, but they're not quite men either."


:smth043


by the way shouldn't the video rather be called: "men don't care about hygiene (unfortunately)".
:? :lol:

How To Save Water By Taking a Shorter Shower

Who comes up with this "advice"???  :oops:

I never understood how "low flow" shower heads save water, considering the lousy stream you get from them. It just makes it take FOREVER to get a decent rinse from them. Unfortunately, they're pretty much mandatory here in the U.S. now and you have to be rather clever to find a workaround.  :roll:

And what's with the bucket for house plants?  My water gets hot in a split second (certainly quick enough to scald me if I'm not careful).

As for two people showering at the same time... Ok, maybe it's "fun" for certain occasions, but how on earth could that be any more efficient when you're using some crappy lo-flo shower head that can barely keep up with one person?  

Anyway, if you REALLY want to save water, just don't bathe at all. Quite a few people in history have gone this route, with King Louis XIV of France possibly being the most famous:

http://ty.rannosaur.us/15-famously-filthy-people-from-the-pages-of-history


During the 72 year reign of Louis, France established an absolute monarchy, Versailles was built, and The Sun King waged war with everyone. Possibly hydrophobic, he refused to bathe unless his doctors forced him to and took two, possibly three, baths his entire life. He preferred to be dusted with scented powder and washed his face with a rag soaked in alcohol. Louis refused surgery on a gangrenous foot, leading to his death, and would lose chunks of it around Versailles.


Problem solved!  :-D

well, some of those advice might be ok depending on where you live/what kind of shower you have etc.
but some of them - i mean, "shower with a friend"? lol. what kid of video is that supposed to be actually?

of course the truth is that we should all learn to save water, just like all other natural resources too.
but i think the much bigger issues are caused by the way how big industries keep wasting and polluting water resources, often without any penalties at all. :? for instance textile industries consume horrible amounts of water:

1,800 gallons (about 6800 liters) water for one pair of jeans  :eek: :? - well, that's a lot of showers.

Yeah. :eek: I guess that's how they thought of blue cheese and all those other smelly types? :smth100
By the way I just learnt that when the first portuguese arrived in Japan in the 17th century as the first Europeans ever, one of the things they found worth enough to tell about when they got back home was that the japanese usually bathed ever day - whereas the Europeans themselves went on for months and months without a bath.
No wonder that the japanese used to called the portuguese "southern barbarians".

I just saw Donnie Darko again and I think that I will never fully understand what the plot is all about. Great film though and a real nice score and soundtrack.

i just finished watching twin peaks once again, both seasons, all episodes.
took a few days ;) or actually a few weeks as i only watched one or two episodes at a time.

it would have been great if they hadn't resolved the palmer case at the end of the first season and had stuck to the original characters and their transformations and not introduced so many new ones.
nevertheless, the plot is irrelevant, the moments are everything. i still like the atmosphere of the series, the strange kind of "it's all inside your head" feeling, the re-occuring symbolism and characters that are both real and unreal at the same time.
