PEE IN THE SHOWER, SAVE THE EARTH.

Or, maybe just some water.

Do you pee in the shower?  Yes?

You nasty.

But science says you should, though, if you want to conserve water.

A lot of it.  1.3 trillion gallons, to be exact.  Here's how they break it down.

"An average flush for a modern, Western-style toilet uses 6 liters (1.6 gallons) of water, and the average adult pees about seven times every 24 hours. That means that each day of weeing takes 42 liters (11.1 gallons) of toilet water to flush away. Assuming that people urinate the same way every single day, this means in just one year, the average person uses 15,330 liters (4,050 gallons) of toilet water.

There are 319 million people in the US, so assuming they all pee the same – which they don’t, but we’re making broadly accurate assumptions here – that’s about 4.9 trillion liters (1.3 trillion gallons) of water flushed away in the name of urine every 365 days."

Here's a link to more of the story, but that's enough toilet learnin' for me today.
