as long as we're going off on our likes and dislikes, i'd like to take
this opportunity to say, i've always hated running water.  i mean,
why the hell do they call it running water anyhow?  have YOU ever seen
water with legs?  i sure haven't!  and how can something run without

further, have you ever noticed that when you turn the hot water on, it
initially comes out cold?  i HATE that!!  why do they call it "hot
water" then?  instead of taking a shower with "hot water", i think we
should all say that we're taking a shower with "water that will become
hot".  i mean, really.  running water is just so over rated!

the human race has gone for MILLENIUM without running water.  and what
has it gotten us?  polluted oceans.  higher disease rates.  poisoned

frankly, i wouldn't let any water into my house that i couldn't do an
md5checksum on.   who KNOWS what kind of fithly nasty viruses could be
embedded in running water?   and has anyone thought of writing some kind
of cryptographic hash for running water?!?   i think not!

whew.  i'm glad i got that off my chest!
