Chart of the Day

Via Radley Balko and Pat's Papers, comes this chart on Canadian water consumption during the Olympic Hockey finals.  As he asks, what happens when everyone in the country goes to the bathroom at the same time?



  1. MJ:

    Are the consumption units in megaliters?

  2. John:

    Eyeballing the chart, it seems that hockey causes a net reduction in water consumed. Of course, this number doesn't include the, er, outflow of processed beer.

  3. mmmwright:

    I remember reading years ago that in NYC all the high rise buildings had to be able to accommodate the flushing that went on at 9:00 p.m., when all three networks had a commercial break at the same time.
