    Best answer: STORY TIME.

    Your house has tons of water In it like a lot. All the time. That’s because it's in the supply pipes that come from your city’s water tower. There is pressure behind this water because the water in your water tower is up much higher than your house, and that creates what is called head pressure. That's why the water comes out of your faucet with such force.

    But all this water has to go somewhere, I mean, it can't just dump into your cabinet! So we devised a method of sending the dirty water from your faucet all the way to the sanitation services that purify it, and send it back into the system. Instead of dumping on the floor, the water goes down the drain through a system of pipes, and it's usually not too complicated. It will probably go from your sink, through a 1 1/2″ pipe to a 3 or 4 inch “stack,” which is a fancy name for a vertical pipe that all of your drains tie into. This stack flows straight down to the main sewer service line for your house, which usually comes in in your basement, and leaves the house, headed directly to the street at a depth of about 4–10 feet.

    This image pretty clearly shows the vertical stack that is receiving the drainage from all of your house appliances, and sending it right on down to the street sewer line.


    When it gets to the street, it ties into a MUCH larger line, depending on where you live, anywhere between 10 inches to several feet in diameter. This massive pipe carries all of the sewage and drain waste water to your local water purification center. Yes, that means that you are drinking sewage.

  • Am I the only one to have an actual political and moral reason to hate xmas?

    I HATE XMAS! There I’ve said it! I’m an atheist, so Christ is not my saviour and he probably never existed. When I tell people they call me a Scrooge. If I said I was a jehova’s witness they’d just leave me alone. Also, I’m a recovering communist, but still leaning strongly to the left and green and I see xmas as... show more
    I HATE XMAS! There I’ve said it! I’m an atheist, so Christ is not my saviour and he probably never existed. When I tell people they call me a Scrooge. If I said I was a jehova’s witness they’d just leave me alone. Also, I’m a recovering communist, but still leaning strongly to the left and green and I see xmas as the peak of capitalism and consumerism and planned obsolescence: you MUST your hard earned money on goods nobody wants, following the latest trends, every year or suffer social disapproval. We’re made to mindlessly give away our minimum wage back to the companies that employ us. It also encourages the production of unnecessary goods for the sake of it. They call it economic growth. Well this model of economics benefits no one. We can’t have infinite growth on a finite planet with finite resources. It will destroy it. And those Asian workers could be making things THEY need and improve their standards of living (think hydroponic foods instead of a gizmo factory). I’ve had to make it concise here and I could go on and on but it usually bores people to just hear me, so I’ll spare you the long read. Am I the only one to think along those lines?

  • Why are we worried about global warming when it says online we are still in an ice age?

    Best answer: We should be technically cooling towards the next glacial maximum, but this takes tens of thousands of years. It's not something to worry about today. By contrast many scientists fear a warming of about 3-4 C by 2100. 3-4 C not sound like much? Consider that during a glacial maximum, temperatures are only... show more
    Best answer: We should be technically cooling towards the next glacial maximum, but this takes tens of thousands of years. It's not something to worry about today. By contrast many scientists fear a warming of about 3-4 C by 2100.

    3-4 C not sound like much? Consider that during a glacial maximum, temperatures are only about 6 C cooler. 6 C cooler, and the planet was unrecognizable: ice sheets miles thick across many continents, sea levels hundreds of feet lower. We are on track for a change of a similar magnitude -- albeit in the opposite direction, and about 500 times faster. The idea that the gradual natural ice age will stave off global warming is like looking at water rapidly rising in your house during a flood, and saying "well water evaporates, so nothing to worry about."

  • Would you hire a team of goats for weed abatement purposes?

    Best answer: It sure would be easier than pushing a lawnmower and digging out the annual weeds. Besides, my lawnmower doesn't have fertilizer coming out the tailpipe.
