Rainwater Collection and Gravity Well Systems: How to?

Birch sap can be made into wine that is quite amazing.

Trees are a most useful arrangement of atoms. They can provide food, water, heat, shelter, and a good vantage point from which to spot approaching Big Bangers. They can even extract gold from the ground!

Rainwater Collection and Gravity Well Systems: How to?

drugs in water

The amount peaks on Friday and Saturday, sampling by the Lisbon-based European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction showed.

Then it falls off as the drug-using population recovers on a Sunday, and continues to go down as they return to work on Monday.

The research found levels in London slightly higher than those in Amsterdam, with 737 mg for every 1,000 people in the British capital compared to 716 mg in the Dutch city. The next city in the league was Antwerp in Belgium, at 632 mg.

They did not correct for differences in water use and efficiencies. If one city simply uses more water per capita, it's drug concentrations would be diluted.

I have the same issues, albeit on a smaller scale (connect 1/2 inch to 1 inch).

Police slammed over manhunt for careless driver who splashed mum and her kids when they drove through a puddle


I'm surprised ppauper didn't spot this one, but maybe he doesn't do UK puddles, only NZ ones.

it does seem odd. I wonder whether the lady who got splashed was the police commissioner's mistress?
