Thought for the Day 8/23/05
When you take a bath (as opposed to a shower), you are soaking in your own filth.
The Japanese have found a way around this. In Japan, you wash before you get in the bath. They sit on a stool and wash themselves and then they relax in the tub. This also lets them re-use the same water over and over. They fill the tub, and then use it many times before having to put fresh water in. Entire families share the same tub of water. In fact, it's not uncommon for familes with young children to bathe together all at once.
Perhaps the saying should be, "The family who bathes together..."
