Oh My, the way things are going it will be here sooner than later.  It will be a major trick to make the stomach hold it down.  But I have seen people drinking the toilet to tap water on the news at test sites and they said it was tastless and orderless.  I think this is natures way of getting back at us.  She is saying, "You wont treat and convert your own waste, so eat it"!

Re: Hilarious!
Again I'll say that I'm pleasantly surprised to see how much support the concept got in our recent Future Cities poll. However, it's totally fair that people would be taken aback by this concept. I mean... it's an unappealing thought, plain and simple! But necessary and safe? Yes.

As for this cartoon, when I suggested the toilet-to-tap topic to our cartoonist, I had no idea how he'd pull it off. And I was, again, pleasantly surprised. Well done! I totally love this.

Haha! Who hasn't seen or heard the family pet indulging in a long, cold drink in that big porcelain bowl?

And who hasn't had to work with themselves just a bit to overcome an initial reaction to the toilet to tap concept?
