07:06 pm - Water, water everywhere ...
Australia is a dry place. Droughts are regular, water restrictions common in many places. Water-saving showers are being heavily promoted, with flow rates around 7 litres/minute.

Scotland is a wet place. Glasgow averages over 1 metre of rainfall every year. The average Australian-style rainwater tank would spend most of the year overflowing. So why on earth does our shower only do four litres per minute ?!

See, that's why there's so much water. They save it, in their showers.

To continue and perpetuate the legend and mystery of bizzare British plumbing.
No one ever managed to explain that other little British bathroom perversion - carpet in the bathroom. Or worse, in the kitchen. As if having a bathroom without a drain in the floor wasn't wierd enough.
