As long as you don't steal our weed, we're good.

There are people here who will never ever let go of the Sonics thing. (Including some who still boycott Starbucks because the CEO initially sold the team to the dude who would take the team out of Seattle).

Me, I couldn't care less about basketball.

Seattle people are perfectly clean and hygienic. You're thinking of the hippies in rural Oregon.

Good times.

The whole western half of the US has been well above average in temperatures and well below average in precip for the last several years.

Unrelated (kind of?) to climate change, but it's tragic that El Niño didn't come online in full strength this winter, at least for the sake of the West.

Parts of Texas where my uncle lives are under such a severe drought that they can no longer water their lawns or wash their cars. In fact he said something to the effect that they are recycling waste water for drinking water.

That would be a good reason to consider moving.

Urine is actually sterile and very easily turned into drinking water. So it's honestly not that bad.

Don't have the equipment to filter it. But if I had the opportunity, yeah, I would. Why not?

It can make the difference between dying of dehydratation and survival in places experiencing severe drought, so I'd say it's pretty brilliant.

Recycling waste water is an excellent idea.

But things are also not so great here in Austin. While the city of Austin has had above normal rainfall for the past year or so, the area just west of it where the reservoirs are has been massively dry really since about 2009, with a break in 2010 because of tropical activity, so our reservoirs are only about 30% full. We keep waiting for big rains in the west to fill them up, but, invariably, when it rains heavily, it's always 20 miles east of where it needs to be, so all the water flows down to the Gulf of Mexico instead of being stored.

I live in West Texas; it never rains here and it's a serious problem. Luckily, we haven't had to resort to recycling water yet where I live. But 2 summers ago we had like 84 days straight of +100 temps. It was insane.
Recycling water is the only option for a lot of areas and is in fact quite effective. But the lakes are drying fast and this area is going to either live or die by the rainfall in the next couple years. They can't keep recycling water forever.
