So this is where people get this stupid idea from. Let me tell you that I am sick of people not flushing their toilets, everytime I walk in I am greeted with the horrible smell of urine or feces. I'd rather "waste water" than contract some disease from this unsanitary practice. You tree-hugging hippies should be ashamed for proposing insane "tips" that ironically harms the environment and human beings more than it helps. All you do is whine about non-existant problems and create drama for yourselves, please stop dictating how we should live our lives.
I think this is 100% true that zoo kills the animals in it by loosing there freeness and placing them in a cage leaving nothing to do fr them.
I swear I saw one of those knit necklaces once in the shape of an alaska salmon. It was interesting. I was at a gift shop in the North West, though, so it was part of the local culture. I guess the jewelry motifs are also going local, these days?
No, alas. It went. I'm not sure when.
Is there still a Rumplemeyer's in NYC??

I had the same idea. I tried this out after reading the article. Just fill up the bucket and pour it into the bowl. It flushes. That simple.
I spent a week showering with a bucket (will get 2 more soon) and collecting runoff. Then I used that water to flush the toilet. Using the 'when it's (light) yellow it's mellow' standard and my grey water bucket I literally pushed my toilet handle 1 time in a week without any inconvenience or stink. Was surprised how simple this is.
hmm, not sure about the peeing in the sink thing. kinda sceeves me. but i'm wondering....how do you flush your toilet with water captured from your shower? pour it in the bowl, or back, or what? great article :)
good one, brennan!
Terrific...a friend taught me the trick of the sink-pee (male-specific for bowl-only lavs): in the case that in a more conservative establishment a left-behind yellow bowl might inspire the next pisser to flush your yellow, piss, then flush his yellow -- piss in the sink (cupping your jewels, boys) and rinse with a fraction the water the bowl uses. I've now done this countless times.
Sprinkling some wheat germ on top of just about anything is an easy, no energy way to add some nutty flavor to a meal. Plus it's full of good-for-you shtuff such as vitamin E and thiamin!
What I meant was - why are they NOT on the front page. This is an issue we should all be made LOUDLY aware of again and again and again.
Why is this article and others like it on the front page in large, bold letters????
Have you ever thought that the experience of viewing exotic animals in up close proximity could be educational for old and young alike?
You may have gotten your fill of seeing lions and rhinos in captivity and feel that their confinement is inhumane, but what about all those poor kids whose visits to the zoo on school field trips encounter for the first and possibly only time, these gorgeous creatures? Doesn't experiencing the majesty and scale of zoo animals promote sympathetic conservation-minded animal lovers? Sure, conditions can and should be improved but zoos are still vital tools for disseminating fundamental information about all types of animals and environmental/habitat conservation.
Thank you for your eloquent and insightful piece. I have protested all forms of animal incarceration – the circus, rodeo, racing - since when an animal is used, it’s more likely, abused. Agitated orcas, rocking and ultimately rampaging elephants, or for that matter, any "beast" that suddenly “turns on” its “trainer” is merely rebelling against protracted suffering and unnatural confinement. If, as you observe, the Internet could so readily disseminate public awareness of this tragedy, why then can’t this very medium be substituted to project the natural images and lifestyle of these animals for childrens’ amusement or education? In the 19th century, this exhibitionism brought an exotic wildlife world to the untraveled, untutored masses. Now the virtual world should ethically supplant this industry and permit humane eduction through viewing these creatures in their habitat for everyone's greater good. Many thanks.
NYC zoos are run by the nonprofit group Wildlife Conservation Society. The animals you see at the zoos are, more than likely, there because they were injured in the wild and would not be alive otherwise. WCS employs vets and research scientists who devote their lives to keeping these animals alive and happy.
Thanks for calling attention to this. The very nature of consumerism demands our ignorance of where products come from and the damage they cause on the way to the chain store shelf. Our economy must not leave a wake of sweatshop casualties and polluted landscapes. -Michael O'Neil, Green Party Of Brooklyn
Oh my god -- she totally is, broski.
Are you trying to suggest that lonely people should have sex with animals?
