Living without Toilet Paper

A Manhattan family is attempting to live for a year without impacting the environment negatively. No A/C, No Electricity, No Washing machine, No Plastics, No Trash and No Toilet Paper. I may not share their views, but damn do I admire their conviction! Let's hope Al Gore Follows suit, I am sure he could last a week. Can't say the same about Tipper* though.

 *Ok, is it just me, or is Tipper Gore the only woman called Tipper in the US? I have never met a Tipper in my life, neither does anyone I know, have you? Who the hell would name their kid Tipper anyway?

    Tipper is a nickname, not her real name.

    My uncle’s nickname for my aunt was Tootie, and we called her Aunty Tootie. I think her real name was Mary. (Just joshing, I know her real name was Mary).

    it sound pretty like a non-sense for the preservation of the world, kind of “anorexie” crisis : too radical !

    I once knew a guy called Tupper, also a nickname, but no Tippers.

    It’s a peculiar Southern habit – hopefully dying out in our generation – of grown women keeping their little girl nicknames well into old age. A former US Comptroller is married to a lady universally known as Puddin’. Seriously. She must be closing in on 70, a very dignified lady, and everyone calls her Puddin’.

    I call my little girl Goofy Butt, but I don’t expect her to keep that name into her adulthood.

    What these people are doing might be a bit extreme for most people but every one can do small things that really won’t impact their daily lives at all but that will help the environment.
