    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded

    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire

    Agreed. The situation over there is dire. The scary thing for me Ryan is that being the deep thinker that I am, I have long held the opinion that the next truly global war will be fought over access to fresh water. The situation in Capetown just exemplifies how easy it would be for a nation to reach a tipping point. I am not saying that South Africa is about to invade Canada (which has more fresh water than any other country) but I am sure that you get by drift.

    +1 how long till our western island (or any country) realises we just let our fresh water run out to the ocean....

    I suspect the Capetown situation is a combination of local geography and seriously incompetent government. Kiwis have NO clue about corruption til you get to understand what goes on in Sth Africa.

    I heard @Rushy had to resort to using a pay phone. Still couldn't get though, but by the time he got the busy tone his coffee was warm again.

    I read you 5 by 5.




    Cape Town situation is borne out of three main contributing factors in my opinion.

    1. Prolonged drought
    2. An approximately 50% increase in population over the last ten years
    3. Bureaucratic mismanagement at a national level

    Maybe I'm a dreamer but given the amount of rainfall in this country, there's certainly a potential export opportunity down the line. Obviously not bottled water, I mean oil tanker type quantities.

    Yep I have even contemplated that for years now as well. Just park a tanker at the bottom of any one of the numerous waterfalls and let gravity do its work.

    I see that opportunity too, but for the life of me cant understand why they have let it get this far with out some sort of plan 'B'. It looks like they need a desalination plant to complement their normal rain fall and it would really come in handy in drought situations like they are experiencing now. In the mean time importing water looks like the obvious relief option.
    I know desalination plants are hellishly expensive... but without pure water there is no life... their call I guess.
