Why did the chicken cross the road?
so he could visit the chicken strip mall? *BARF GAG*
Okay I want to talk about a serious problem. It is something that has been around since the 1990's. This particular dilemma has been causing people to become irritable, violent, and even depressed. Psychologists are concerned that the mental health of the general population is at risk.
Wondering what I am talking about? Low flow toilets. More like NO FLOW toilets. When I did some research I came across one company's slogan "Low flow toilets - The Only Way to Go." Really? I have found that low flow is the best way not to go. A standard toilet uses about 13.2 liters or for you Americans 3.5 gallons per flush. A low flow uses 6 liters or 1.6 gallons. Does this make a lot of sense to anyone? Would cutting a car's gas tank by more than 50% make it more fuel effiecient?
Car salesman: "Yes it's a great car! It uses 50% less fuel than a standard car!"
But that is because the tank is half the size, so you fill it up twice as much.
So you end up paying $259.99 for a decorative toilet, which people will try to use because they think that it is a real toilet. To give an analogy, this is the equivalent of a dollar store water pistol that has the hard plastic trigger that cuts you every time you try and use it. Meanwhile, the rich people have the pressure washers that can blow your face off. No comparison.
Indeed there is a growing water crisis, but really should we make sacrifices when it comes to toilets? What about all the water parks opening up all the time? I'm just saying we are going to have many more problems immediately if we don't resolve this low flow problem.
Imagine for a moment that every toilet in the world was switched to a low flow toilet. If it so happened that every toilet was used at the same time. Now these low flow toilets become, how should I put it politely, obstructed. Wouldn't something terrible happen like the world explodes? That kind of pressure build up could cause a rip through time and space, potentially opening up a worm hole that eats the entire universe.
As a final thought, I have someone's personal experience with a low flow toilet. To protect his identity I will call him Wark. Don't ask if it is me because my name is Mark and Wark is completely different. If one is to cause a low flow toilet to become, compromised, out of service, whatever, you will try and restore that toilet to its previous function. So you end up with a garage full of magical tools to try and fix the problem. But no nothing will work and you will end up trying to flush the toilet hmmm maybe 20 times?
WAIT A SECOND! It is only low flow if you flush it once right? A normal toilet uses 13.5 liters and works just fine the first time. If you flush a low flow more than twice you are actually CONSUMING MORE WATER! GASP! Is this all a scam? If you did flush a low flow toilet 20 times it would add up to....calculator....120 liters. OH MY GOODNESS. We are actually depleting the water supply almost 9 times faster than using regular toilets.
I will end my rant here. But the war against low flows rages on everyday. Everyday I am reminded of their pitiful lack of function. Whoops I mean Wark is reminded of their pitiful function.
