So an average adult human is supposed to drink 2 litres of water a day to stay healthy, not a lot of people do that but for the sake of the math here let’s say you do. If your tap water is so shady you refuse to drink it, that means you burn through two $2.50 one litre bottles of water a day, which amounts to $5. A friend of mine using a portable filter intended to clean 1000 litres of water (I’m not sure what quality of water was used to get that number) said in practical application she got about two months of heavy duty use camping in an area where the water is so thick with decomposing plant matter it’s green and opaque
Assuming in this active, athletic summer camping situation she is also drinking her two litres of water every day, it means her filter cleaned about 120 litres of totally raw and untreated muddy lake water for $20. That same amount of bottled water would run you $300 at $2.50 per litre bottle, so using a filter to treat the dirty water instead of resorting to bottles saved her $280, a hundred and twenty plastic bottles, and 240 litres of wasted water in the “three litres of water to produce one litre of bottled water" exchange.
Bottled water companies are completely devastating California, if you don’t trust your tap water please, please invest in a filter, carry a reusable bottle with you, you will save so much money and help keep California wet enough to continue providing the rest of the country with the produce they grow here.
THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT DOWN
AND REPLACE IT WITH THE BULLSHIT ENDANGERED SPECIES MANAGEMENT SELF-DETERMINATION ACT
THAT ALLOWS STATES TO DECIDE IF THEY EVEN WANT TO ABIDE BY LAWS PROTECTING SPECIES AT ALL
AND DELISTS SPECIES AFTER ONLY FIVE YEARS
DOES ANYONE ELSE EVEN CARE
better question; how do we stop this?
Let me guess, Koch brothers?
forgot to put this up ages ago!
Sketch commission for tumblr user charmander-with-a-tablet of her succubus character. It was plenty of fun.
This is a personal project which I started in February after rabidly purchasing the 1:48 Finemolds’ kit the moment I had finished watching Porco Rosso for the first time.
It was slow as I worked on it as a back-burner project, it wasn’t until June that I actually completed the whole thing and only today that I could be bothered to take the final photos.
The kit is superb, fitted together like a dream. I was pleasantly surprised to see Gina included, but because I wanted to portray a very specific scene, I totally resculpted her with Milliput so that she would be wearing accurate clothes.
The base is teak, with the balcony being made from MDF coated in Polyfilla, and the sea done with clear silicone sealant. I used the decals which came with the kit for the plaque
i think this may just be the greatest string of tweets in the history of mankind
TO BE COMPLETELY HONEST I REMEMBER EVERYTHING BUT READING THESE TWEETS AGAIN AFTER SO MANY MONTHS IT ALMOST FEELS SURREAL LIKE “I CANT BELIEVE THIS PERSON IS ME”
god bless you grawly
