The amount of water consumed by a bovine is only to some extent wasted, the majority ends up as urine that completes the cycle of returning nutrients to the land where the grazing occurs.
I'd wager that 100% of the water consumed by a bovine returns to the environment.
I may get accused of being a sexist and all for saying this, but it's been my experience that a feminist vision of "equality" is very different from my definition. "Equality" in their mind is getting all the perks of being a woman (men fawning over you and buying you free food and drinks, sexual power, the taboo on physically attacking you, etc.) while simultaneously also getting all the perks of being a man (higher breadwinner pay, political power, etc.)--and all without having to suffer ANY of the downsides of either gender.
In short, they want it ALL, they want it NOW, and they want it all for FREE.
well, speaking as a man, i also want to get paid as much money as i can, be fawned over, and get free food all while not being physically attacked.
still, as someone who has both inhaled some water from time to time, and someone who has been burned form time to time, it seems that inhaling water is really far removed from burning on the gradient of most painful ways to die. Being slowly digested over a thousand years in the belly of a sarlac is probably between them.
I'd still pick "eww" over drowning, as drowning is supposedly one of the more painful ways to die.
painful? i haven't heard that. I do some free diving and have a respectable ~2ish minute breath hold under water. I personally have never experienced shallow water blackout, but i know people who have. it doesn't sound like they ever were in pain. they just blacked out, had someone not rescued them they would have drowned, but the last thing they remembered was peacefully swimming under water. maybe i'm not drowning right.
on topic, i'd chose drinking the helmet water over drowning too.
One word will explain why the LEAF is not popular:
The tesla is probably not taking leaf customers away. it's not really in the same class. However, if you compare the cars to other cars in their price range, you see the difference. The model s has all the bells and whistles you'd expect form an $80k sport sedan. It's a damn fine looking car compared to the bmws and lexuses out there. the leaf looks like one of the ugliest cheapo hatchbacks out there, but it costs twice as much as any of those. (the volt suffers from the same thing if you ask me)
to even make out the screen. i had to adjust it constantly. it would always slip on my face so everytime i needed to look at the screen that meant more fiddling with my hands. for something that's supposed to be hands free, it sure did occupy my hands a lot. Then the crummy resolution results in a hard to see result.
if you think you are going to get useful navigation information while you bike or drive, like google implies, thing again. if you think you are going to suddenly exhibit superhuman cognitive abilities as the whole of the web flashes before your eyes and your friends marvel at your ability to recognize everyone and everything, think again. if you think you will look like you are paying attention while secretly watching something in glass, you won't you look like a catatonic idiot.
However, it's not like it holds no promise. this kind of thing is probably the future. And i want a cool wearable hud in the future so i'd honestly like you to buy this piece of crap now and help fix it.
1. "It Is The Tools (Stupid)." And by that I mean "the tools" I mean the software used to watch and participate. None of this is exactly "user friendly" or easily discoverable. I don't play "League of Legends" but I do play "Dota 2" a lot and you have to actively follow reddit.com/r/Dota2 and know where to look for the information on the software let alone matches. It is difficult if not impossible to even use social "share" mechanism. And even using the hooks offered from Twitch.tv into FB/G+/Twitter just means your "regular" page becomes a spammy mess.
hard to find games to watch in dota2? maybe you never clicked the watch button right there on the title screen.
