So as I was staring at the running faucet in my bathroom waiting for the hot water to actually be hot, I started thinking about all the times I was told as a child to not waste water because it's bad for the environment. I used to blindly believe that, but then I started thinking: Back in middle school we learned about the water cycle, how it's in liquid form in bodies of water and how it evaporates and turns into clouds and then into rain and then into lakes and ponds and oceans. K, well, we get our water supply from either A) large bodies of water, B) rainfall, or C), water treatment plants, and water from treatment plants come from A or B originally. So how do water treatment plants get water? From sewer lines, etc. Well, the water I run from the faucet into the drain goes into the sewer (or in my case, a septic tank, where it's absorbed back into the soil and eventually drains back into the waterway/ocean). SO all that water I just "wasted" really just went back into the water cycle and is going to be reused eventually. It's not like the drain magically disappears water. So what's the big fockin deal with waiting on hot water to come outta the tap when my bathroom is cold to begin with? I think it's one big conspiracy put together by cheap parents to cut down on the water bill. I'M NOT FALLING FOR YOUR DIRTY LIES!!!!! Oh and Diesel4me, on average, how long does it take you to type a response?
