brain drain

Australia has a serious water shortage problem.

Seriously though, a 4 minute shower? I tried it this morning, and I made it, but it worries me. Australia is going to become a cultural wasteland if everybody has 4 minute showers.

If everyone in the country has 4 minute showers, no one is going to come up with that brilliant idea for solving the country’s water woes.

    […] While it could be argued that limiting showers to four minutes might be the fall of Western Civilisation, The four-minute shower timer is a relatively cheap gadget that can be ordered online and installed inside your shower recess (unfortunately it’s no longer available in kit form). It’s a patented device, otherwise I would challenge ReadyMade readers to construct one of these beauties from scratch. […]
