Giant Lego Snow Sculpture

This is cool (-pun rep) and awesome. Now all they need to do is get some paint.

It also reminds me of the lego ice brick maker.

I think the Government will owe more to us then us it...all that water that they don't collect that goes down the storm drains, for not collecting it there should be a penalty...

Taxing the rain in the rainwater tanks looks like a great way to encourage the use of rainwater tanks...

I wonder if I could get a deduction if I pissed in the gutter.

"If 1000 homes were to install 5000-liter tanks with an annual yield of 57,000 liters, this is 57 million liters that would not have reached a river or ground water system, or - viewed another way - is taken from either the environment's entitlement or another productive use."

haven't they realised its not been raining that much lately, also it assumes you use all the water in that 5000L.

If they really wanted to make some money taxing things, why not tax people that horde money. When they really should be spending it...

Banned Hiroshima Pictures

The Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed about 250.000 people and became the most dreadful slaughter of civilians in modern history. However, for many years there was a curious gap in the photographic records. Although the names of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were incised into our memories, there were few pictures to accompany them. Even today, the image in our minds is a mixture of devastated landscapes and shattered buildings. Shocking images of the ruins, but where were the victims?
