Heh. You mean like the existing flapper seals on a normal tank fail? Or like the refill valve in a normal tank fails? :)

I didn't attempt to take the one in our toilet apart, but I poked around a bit, and the overall concept seems pretty simple, almost as simple as the flap/float sy…

Although this is true in a literal sense, I think the analogy with electricity generation seems apt: for years, there's been advocacy and even a policy based on the idea that saving "one generating station's worth" of electricity is equivalent to building a new generating station. Conserv…

I ABSOLUTELY do NOT support a growth at all costs strategy. I'm not actually sure whether I support growth at all - it seems to be a complex question, and I don't think the answer is at all clear. When my wife and I moved here, we deliberately bought an existing house that had been on the…

On a technical note: although it obviously would save much less water than the move from 3-5 gallon flushes to 1.6 gallon flushes, everyone should know about the wonders of the current generation of 0.8 gallon flush toilets. I installed a Niagara pressure-assist flush toilet last year aft…

My wife and I typically use around 1000 gallons a …

In the late 1980s, I lived in Seattle. It was fashionable to say things like "Stop Californication" there, back then (and for all I know, it still is now). This piece needlessly utilizes Californians as proxies for what is actually a policy argument, which is both unnecessary, and unfair.…

This is a reply to Amber Espinosa-Trujillo, rather than Stefanie Beninato.

There are people in the world who are very much attached to whatever they perceive as their own history and culture. Not just here in New Mexico, but all across the world. Some of these histories and cultures…

Wait, you are seriously advocating for a position that anyone not born in a given place can never be "in any kind of position that affects what this [place] becomes"?

Do you call yourself an American? Do you not understand how fundamentally opposed what you have just suggested is to…

The article says nothing about teenagers actually getting vaccinated. The vaccination process in NM, for better or for worse, continues to happen via registration at the state's vaccine website, and then you get notified of openings/the possibility of getting a shot.

That's why the …
