Buy coal

Well, buy up coal shares and you will make a killing.

Now that we have to buy tanks to catch rainwater for our use and recyle our used water, you will need a supply of coal to produce gas for household use.

The power stations are going to give us one hit of the electric per day, so you will need batteries to store it and some electric producing equipment for the luxuries, such as lighting.

Sharpen your shovel for some extra exercise that won't do you harm. You need a nice sharp shovel to dig a hole to bury your body wastes.

At work the other day I noticed that a 44 gallon drum that became a 205 litre drum has now been reduced to 200 litres. 200 or 205, you will need one of these empty drums to incinerate your household rubbish.

If you care to give me some vegies from your garden, I will be most grateful, so long as you can assure me that they aren't watered by run off from you standing in a shower with each foot in a bucket.

Turning the clock back isn't it? Well so is indivdual supply of your own water. What is the point of having a centralised water supply authority if they cannot supply water and our governments are encouraging us to collect our own water.

Did my ears hear correctly? 95% of Australians would be happy to drink recyled storm water? Yet it is a much lower percentage who would drink recyled sewerage. Well, while there won't be much human faeces in storm water, think of what flows down the gutters of our streets.

  1. I don't understand the issue with recycled water. I challenge you to be able to taste the difference between recycled and non-recycled - if you did not know which one was wish. Have drunk it in loads of countries and never noticed a thing.

    Except if I have to drink Adelaide water (shudder)

  2. I have no problem with recycled water. Just wish they would hurry up and get on with it.

  3. if it was bad for us, they wouldn't let us drink it.

    but yes, they (as usual) are much too slow in bringing it in, considering that the sewage plants have been around for decades
