    Spaghetti jars have a large mouth to make pouring and filling easier. Being made of glass made them easier to heat on the stove.

    Some people will never have their water turned off for lack of payment yet they still hoard water in food and everything else just because in case of emergency a disaster they are a prepper there's lots reasons why people would do that because they Want to be prepared. But whatever they do it for, I think there very smart because there not gonna do without because they made actions to make sure of it

    I work in a public water system. I do have to lock peoples meters when they don’t pay there bill. When you get a water bill everyone says water is free why am I having to pay for this. Look at it this way. your not paying for the water your paying for what it takes to get that water to you safely. The water system is responsible for everything in that aspect. Power to pump, pipes to transport, workers to fix and maintain everything for you to have safe drinking water. Yes water can be free if you want to go to a creek get buckets and boil it yourself.

    So it’s a human right to automatically have clean drinking water show up to your house through a pipe? Wtf 😂 everyone before modern plumbing must have been having their human rights violated.

    Acquiring clean water is everyone’s right. Having clean water provided is no one’s right.

    Our pond sat on top of a small hill,so in the summer we would put the garden below the pond and run a syphon hose from pond to garden. We hauled water in big water cans from town,and poured it into smaller more manageable containers. We had 5 gallon buckets of water in the bathroom to flush the stool,and a rain barrel outside we used for bathing and laundry. It wasn't really bad when your equipped for it,but turning on a faucet is a whole lot easier lol. Good times.
