Technological Progress

November 18th, 2007

I just got this cool, new thing installed at my apartment. They call it running water. It’s really amazing. I turn a handle, and water just jumps out of a pipe in the wall. It’s pretty awesome. I’ve got like six of these pipes installed, and they all spit out clean water whenever I want.

I just took what I like to call a standing bath, but I think it’s technically called a “shower”, or something like that. I also used this thing called a “water closet” and “flushed” it when I was finished. I even flushed it again just for kicks! And then I washed my hands under one of those running water pipes. Cleanliness is next to godliness, you know.

All in all, it really is awe-inspiring. It’s only the year 2007 A.D., and I’ve already got running water in my house. The future has never looked brighter!

    Wow, the future is totally sweet. I can’t wait ’til we have running water in New York. :)

  2. Derek Park Says:

    I’m hoping to get some of that newfangled ‘lectricity soon.

  3. Jerry Says:

    I remember the first time I had running water in the house. I also remember getting one of those town pots installed and a bath tub.

    It is an inspirational experience.

  4. Derek Park Says:

    I give. What’s a “town pot”? A toilet? The Internet doesn’t seem to be much use here.

  5. Jerry Says:

    When we first got a toilet, that is what I called it because I had only seen them in town.

    He also walked to school in the snow, up hill both ways. 365 days of the year in TENNESSEE.

    That is also quite inspirational…and evidence of global warming.
