    As a plumber, the general public's bathroom habits are no surprise to me. Most people are disgusting slobs........

  3. You got that right. I've seen first hand a sewage and septic tanks messes. I'm sure you've seen worse though.

    Bathroom habits are nothing compared to some of the pranks pulled. Ever heard of an upper decker......

    The act of defecating in the upper tank of the toilet. When the next poor unsuspecting person flushes the toilet they get a bowl of beef stew...

    Forgot to mention to the original poster, since I unintentionally derailed his thread. Thank you for providing the video and posting it here. It's amazing how many people would poop near a water source, whether it's potable or not.

    Given how many Americans aren't able to squat for more than a second or are too fat to reach around and wipe, I'm betting the majority of them will just go into the nice, gravity suspending water source to do their business.

    Post apocalyptic starvation may solve that problem (morbid obesity), but I guess many will still use water courses as an "au natural" bidet out of ignorance.

    And that is just another reason to guard your water sources. Whether it's a spring, seep, creek, or lake, without potable water, you are dead man walking.

    With water supplies in mind, How are folks without wells planning on getting water post SHTF?

    I mean, you live in high desert, no well, you've been bringing in water to fill your cistern and now fuel is prohibitively expensive to bring in water. What's plan B and C?
