Flushing Lavatories A Luxury Too Far

Leave the yellow to mellow: it’s time to flush out those toilet water wasters | The Times

Now that drought is upon us and we must all do our bit to save water...Cameron Diaz is out and proud about adhering to the “If it’s yellow let it mellow. If it’s brown send it down” mantra....“Urine stinks so I flush. End of,” says a colleague. But our forefathers coped with chamber pots quietly humming beneath the bed.
Perhaps, if only temporarily, we should forgo the luxury of being so fastidious about our toilette and let it stew awhile. It’s a grim thought for the summer, granted, but we’ll no doubt live....

....hopefully somewhere downwind of me.

They also had to put up with dysentery, smallpox, cold and hunger. Since then we've progressed.
