Queensland set to drink own urine

Queensland Premier Peter Beattie has ditched a referendum on whether the state wishes to drink recycled waste water. Like it or lump it, the Sunshine State faces strained yellow water in their taps as early as next year.
"I think in the end, because of the drought, all of Australia is going to end up
drinking recycled purified water," Mr Beattie told ABC Radio.

If there's one thing to be thankful for during this liquid summer in NZ, we'll not be short of a drop or two of properly precipitated water.
