It's 2016. Why hasn't there been a marketable technology for cleaning yourself that doesn't consist of copious amount of water? People spend fucking 25 gallons of water in one shower.

not me. I take baths. :)

>literally bathing in your own filth

>>52516561
since water is so cheap(for now). My roommate did math on how long it would take for a low-throughput shower-head to pay for itself and it was like 2 years at the play we were staying.

Testicletea isn't better, you nasty cunt.

forgot to mention that the shower-head was like $20

That's not people. That's fat landwhales the size of webm related, or women.
Both creatures are not people. These creatures are simply animals. They waste the resources of society solely for pleasure, and they do nothing to produce it.
They are leeches, parasites, human trash. And they must be purged.

My guilty pleasure is letting the shower run while i sit next to it right after i wake up for like 20 minutes. Sometimes i wont even take a shower.

Am i going to hell?
>>
>>52516561
Might become useful if we had to go to a planet that wasn't 70% water.

For now, it isn't.
>>
>>52516735

Yeah, but they got all the fun things down there anyways so it's ok.
>>
>>52516777
S..see you there bro.
>>
>>52516561
See international space station.

We are perfectly capable of using as little water to clean as we want.
>>
>>52516561
I definitely do not use 25 gallons. I'd say 3-5 gallons is about a correct estimate.
>>
>>52516561
Rub yourself with oil
>>
>>52516617
low output heads just mean longer showers since it takes longer to clean yourself
>>

its cold in space hence no sweat

Whenever I take a bath I like to think of the less fortunate in under developed countries who don't have access to clean water, people like those in Flint in America, I always feel superior and somewhat lucky for having clean drinking water on demand 24 hours a day.

What is so hard about this? Could do this with less than a gallon of water.

Water is recycled everyday. You're only paying for the costs of infrastructure, distribution, filtering, cleaning etc.
>>
>>52516617
you can keep the stupid showerhead and take it with you when you leave that place.

Showers are way more than just washing yourself.

Showers are a great way to wake up. A great way to get warm on a winter morning. They feel wonderful. They're relaxing. I crank up the heat, put the back of my neck and shoulders into the stream, and massage my weird spastic muscle (left trapezius area).

It also softens my whiskers. I shave in the shower. No messy crap all around the sink and a much smoother, easier shave.

Hell, I'd be fine with a switch that recycles the drain water right back into the shower head. Get in, rinse off, turn on the recycler, enjoy getting blasted with heat for ten minutes, then turn it off and do a final rinse. Hell yeah, I just saved the world AND our collective sanity.

This :3 Is so comfy :3 A nice warm bath after a you come home in winter nights with temperatures of -10 degrees Celsius. Nothing compares with that :3

>>52518120
which is better anon, using 20 gallons and sending it all to be recycled, or cycling 5 gallons through your shower-drain loop four times and sending those 5 gallons to be recycled
>>
>>52517077

hey baby, let's h2ohhhh
with this sensually and strategically positioned white model
in the shower there's no such thing as a "politico-media" complex
we should let the water run as long as we want
>>
>>52518120

I mean immediate recycle and reheat. I'm saying that after my initial scrub-down, the water is staying clean and mostly soap free for a significant portion of my time in the shower.

The load on infrastructure isn't free.
>>
>water
>expendable

Nice meme
>>
>>52517983
That's actually a bright idea. I'm gonna start doing that.

I already stopped using shampoo. I don't have to worry about rinsing off much more than a thin layer of soap from my body.

Yes, astronauts sweat in space. And when they do sweat, it doesn't fall away from their bodies, it just sticks to it.

Unless they are exposed to a vacuum of course. Then the water instantly boils off before it can even form sweat. It just boils out of their skin, nose, mouth... Basically every single hole in their body.

I takes like 1600 gallons of water to make 1lb of beef. I don't give a fuck how long you shower.

its 2016 why is there no new technology to sweep a chimney
>>
>>52516561
i dunno but i spend about 30 minutes in the shower

20 minutes just letting the water run over me and the other 10 washing myself
>>
>>52516584
You do realize baths use more water than a shower right? Unless you're planning on showing for over twenty minutes that's just not a reasonable response.

But baths are comfy so fuck op who cares water is cheap in the US

A steam shower would be an alternative. Get in the shower on the regular setting, your body gets wet and then the shower turns into steam mode. You soap up, put shampoo in your hair and when you're done, then turn on the water stream again. Probably could do the whole thing with five gallons. The steam doesn't take much water and would keep you warm while soaping.

how much surface area do you have to wash?
