Potty Humor
No Really
Maybe just potty statistics
Let's take a look at the human toll on the resources of the earth.
I use the toilet an average of 7 times per day. If I live to be 75 years old, that is 27,375 days which is 191,625 flushes. At an average of 1.5 gallons per flush that is 287,437.5 gallons of water in a life time. To put this in perspective the large tanker trucks you see going down the road hold 10,000 gallons. That is 28 of these trucks.

How about the TP? I am a regular guy with daily routines. So I am going to say each day I use 6 squares of TP. A square of TP is 4.5 inches long. This correlates 27 inches per day. This is 739,125 inches in the 75 year life. That is 11.67 miles!!

align="left">The horror of it all, 287 thousand gallons of water and over 11 miles of toilet paper. Okay, this is it. I am swaring off going to the toilet. Think of the savings! Don't even get me started on a female's life time consumption. DMP

Kinda Interesting to See Where You've Been
Some of the states were airport visits. I'm guessing that I might have visited some that are not marked as a wee lad.

Some of the countries are just through the airport headed somewhere else.

I guess I'm not much of a world traveller. I like home and my little family.

My work is why have been where I've been. DMP
