And The ‘Maria Carey Award For Ridiculous Environmental Ideas’ Goes To…

Two students at the University of East Anglia have started a campaign called #gowiththeflow encouraging their colleagues on campus to urinate in the shower to save water.
Eeeeewwww!
The pair are representing UEA in Npower’s Future Leader’s Challenge which encourages students to come up with an environmental initiative on campus.
And they came up with an excuse for students to be slobs instead! Genius!

Let's hope students at such a famous institution have the sense to "do their business" as soon as they get in the shower. Then there'll be a chance for water and soap suds to wash the stuff away...

I think its students from the anti-war group, who encourage the 'piss up winston churchills statue' campaign.
Facebook have blocked it now but it was the done thing to have your photo taken on facebook pissing up warmonger churchills statue

I think Eminem was joking when he said that, or is there another Maria Carey story?

Fresh urine is sterile. When it is stale bacteria break down the urea it contains to release the pungent ammonia smell. If diluted by beer drinking it's good for fertiliser, concentrated by dehydration it will scorch plants. As long as it is washed down the plughole, nowt wrong with peeing in the shower.

Peeing is a lot more hygenic than some other things students do in showers.

As the story refers to the UEA, someone more crass than me might wish to enquire what effect will this eco-widdle have on climate change.

Mariah Carey Award. LOL.

"In East Anglia, saving water is even more important than in other places – the area....has one of the highest rates of housing development."

Just reverse mass immigraion, then. No more water shortage.

I thought the gold standard for 'Stupid, Vapid American Singer with Retarded Environmental Ideas' was Sheryl Crow's.

Pissing in the shower is disgusting and working-class - unless there are two of you in there and she's facing away from you.

Well, I happen to think it's a brilliant idea. Water is scarce and saving all those unnecessary flushes should be applauded.

I will be expanding on the initiative when I wash the car next Sunday.

I can confirm that people in East Anglia are definitely different in their thought processes from the rest of the UK...

You mean it isn't customary to pee in the shower?

I have been on a FEW warrant executions (Drugs/House clearence warrants) where they have shit in the bath for months, if not years.

It is NOT unusual!

"Fresh urine is sterile."

Indeed so!

"Just reverse mass immigraion, then. No more water shortage."

Ah, if only...

"I will be expanding on the initiative when I wash the car next Sunday."

You'll need a long hose... ;)
