There are many things we pour down the drain that can cause mayhem in household pipes,septic systems or municipal severs.

Well, I try to never have money going down the drain.

Seriously, I live in New York City, and most homes do not have garbage disposals (for a long time they were illegal), so we don't usually send anything down the drain except liquids.

We don't have a garage disposal. I haven't looked out right but, I don't think they are available here. At least I never noticed any for sale. No one I know has one either.

That said, very small amount of some of the things mentioned go do down the drain, most often that would be rice. Not a lot a few kernels here and there, like from rinsing off a plate. Any left over in the rice cooker are mixed up with other left overs and dog food for the dogs.

LOL.

I don't watch much TV. Here is why. Watched about five minutes of Lost Gold of World War II on the History Channel a while back. What a bunch of garbage. The amazing thing, they never found it. Duh...

I've watched it also and found it quite entertaining, the research done and the logistics/planning required for such an expedition.

I also enjoyed watching Hunting Hitler on History - I thought the premise reasonable and well put together. Whether or not you believe it, it's food for thought.
