Swimming Pools and San Francisco

Did you know that if someone collected all of the water in swimming pools in the US that all that water would be enough to cover San Francisco?

Now you do!

Does this posting have anything to do with the drought and water restriction in Australia? Being a stupid Indonesian who doesn't know how to fix stuff or do anything to do with home improvement, I just learnt yesterday that rain water tanks get its water from the gutters up the roof. I had always thought you just leave it up in the open! Turns out that you much more rain water because the surface of roof is way larger than the diameter of the tank. Yes, stupid.

Hey KD...

Nope had nothing to do with the current drought or water restrictions in Australia.

I used to have a rain water tank when I was a kid. So, I know about that stuff :D One of the benefits of growing up in the bush.

Not stupid, but learning!

SF is a great place and perhaps I did, but that would be another post entirely :D

Been in Singapore and too lazy to post on a regular basis.

Not writers block either.

I will get back in to the swing of things over the next couple of days.

Thanks for being the only one that has noticed me as MIA!

Thanks but I am not really into intel launch parties, particularly when I am invited anonymously through a comment on a blog entry about swimming pools in SF.

But if you reveal yourself then perhaps I will reconsider. Are the drinks free at X2?
