Peter: Apparently an algae bloom in Perth's Swan River is a big problem. It has been advised that no fish/crustacean/molluscs from the river are to be consumed for risk of serious poisoning.

WolfDen: Damn, that must have happened fast. Wonder where? Read article a month ago, Maylands/Bayswater sections, where I live, were voted the best sections of the Swan River for cleanliness and quality of water.

norseman: I've read the manifesto and viewed the footage. He was no "nutter" he knew what he was doing! Not condoning his actions but you can see why the politicians and lefties are trying to shut down any alternate discussion of this tragic event!

There are people living in the Todd River in Alice springs who rarely if ever wash or change clothes. They seem to survive ok. The smell is pretty wild though. If I recall my history books correctly: Europeans barely washed between the 600's and 1800's ... and also smelt rather bad.
I personally believe that hot water bathing is one of modern lifes great luxuries. I certainly enjoyed cooking up 80 litre batches of boiling water in our wood fired copper, hauling it inside in buckets and having nice hot bath during the 3 night blackout we had a couple of years back.
Went to the Henley on Todd once when I was a kid. Awesome. Loved the radio controlled bomber dropping lollies until I found out it was a distraction to get the kids out of the way so the wet t-shirt competition could be held.
Not shower for a year..... Won't happen here.. With the nose my Sweetie has, if I try to recycle a T shirt the second day I'm in for it... Poor dog or I can let the tiniest toot, even in the next room and there will be consequences.
In the times they didn't bathe, I think they used a lot of powders, perfumes and what not. I have no idea how they kept from dying of rashes and such... ICK...
Wet T shirt competition... I saw that once... Same girl won 1st and 3rd....
