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!

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?

It would be quite easy to imagine our century without carpenters; we would simply use iron furniture. We could just as well do without the stonemason; the cement worker would take over his work. But there would be no nineteenth century without the plumber. He has left his mark and become indispensable to us.
We think that we have to give him a French name. We call him the installateur. This is wrong. For this man is the pillar of the Germanic idea of Cultrue. The English were the keepers and protectors of this culture and therefore deserve to take precedence when we are looking around for a name for this man. Besides, the word "plumber" comes from the Latin - plumbum means "lead" - and is thus for the English as well as for us not a foreign word, but a borrowed word.
For a century and a half now we have been receiving our culture secondhand: from the French. We have never rebelled against the leadership of the French. Now that we realize that we have been duped by the French, now that we realize that the English have been leading the French around by the nose for a long time, we are setting up a front of German culture against the English. We did not mind being guided by the French; it was very pleasant. But the thought that the English are really the leaders - that makes us nervous.
