Here’s one that has GOT to make you laugh. The million inhabitants of Rome in Augustus’ day two thousand years ago enjoyed a comfortable, civilized and refreshing 200 gallons of water a day per capita, free of charge for almost everyone. Juxtapose that with the parched, burned-out, electricity-less residents of Los Angeles, eking by on 78 gallons per day and paying through the nose for it. Don’t feel too bad for them though; here’s the real joke. I published an article about them today—they’re out in the streets protesting again in LA, but not because they want more water, they’re complaining because they want LESS. Indeed, they're the first people on Earth ever to have come down on the side of thirst, filth, dehydration and death.
