PERHAPS A LITTLE TOO GREEN.

Most of us are 'environmentally friendly' to one degree or another, whether that is just re-cycling our household waste or being more pro-active. Perhaps whoever came up with these ideas was going a little too far though.

In Venezuela, President Hugo Chavez has come up with a plan to cut the nation's water shortage. He's asking people to stop singing in the shower. "People who sing stay in the shower longer then they need to. I only shower for three minutes, and I don't stink." he said.

While .....

In Taiwan, a city councillor has attacked plans by a mortuary in Taipei to convert the energy created by cremations into electricity. "It's too creepy. They'd be pumping air conditioning at mourners that's being powered by the deceased," the councillor complained.

I'm so a green lover and enviromentally consious. Terribly far-fetched thoughts regarding the leadership of those countries.
Have a great and safe weekend!

Asking people to stop singing in the shower - ridiculous.

You would think there are other ways to help with the needs of being environmentally friendly. I really wonder how many people in Venezuela (let alone anywhere in the world) sing in the shower. Any guesses? I don't even know if I would say 1 in 10. That sounds crazy. I guess any little bit helps? *shrugging*
