The reason is plain. There was a sale on Powerade at Smart and Final and so I bulked up. I'm very sure that I'm getting at least 40oz of hydration a day by drinking two bottles. That and my Red Bulls.
So it occurs to me, as I'm running through Charmin that in countries without toilet paper, the squirts must be an order of magnitude more.. umh, well shitty. Especially in those countries where young children dehydrate and die from diarrhea. So if I didn't have Handi Wipes handy, I would probably want to drink a lot less water and eat a lot more meat. If I gotta poop and hand-wipe, I want to poop out pebbles.
So there's my Freakonomic question for the day. Does the diet in poor countries skew towards foods that make pooping more round, firm and fully packed, or maybe do they prefer a more liquid consistency? Or does the left hand not even enter into the general vicinity of the question?
