I laugh at this, Japan does it with high tech dunnies that flush and blow dry your bum, India and much of Asia does it with a hose or pot and you need to dry your own bum. And we panic because there may be a run (sic) on toilet paper.

i fly the flag of haiku, rather than the white rag of surrender:
news infested with rumors
begets more rumors:
plain truth drowns in memes
sharp pain: homeopathic
remedy for the
dull ache of habits
between in, out: the middle
of nowhere where we
sort it out, or in
might as well go fly the kite
made you the loose string
you forget you are

True enough: Not all Dutch dialects are equally bad. As far as I known, that hawking when speaking is most pronounced in the dialects from the northern part of the country. I was mostly in contact with people from the very south (without learning the language), who you meet face to face with without regularly wiping your face.
