Q: Where does all of Beijing's sewerage water go? Used as crop fertilizer?

A similar question, but similarily shrouded in mystery. I asked my Chinese friends where all the toilet water goes and he (half-jokingly) said it gets used as fertilizer in the countryside. This can't be true! What about all the disgusting toilet paper! And we eat those vegetables! Tell me it's not true. Yuck!

the water in some cities goes back to the toilet pipes that's why when a plumber connects your kitchen to the wrong pipe you get brown water

A:Getting my second dose of Moderna in a couple weeks. This is perhaps the only benefit of being in the US now. Then I can go to one of the countries that allows vaccinated tourists. IMO, worth the wait. @Nasboroguy: The Chinese government has already admitted that their two vaccines are not as effective as they initially said. No big surprise. Now they are talking about mixing Sinopharm/Sinovac with Astrazeneca. Covid may be (barely) contained in China, but as long as the billions of people there haven't received an effective vaccine, the entire country will be at risk of continuous outbreaks such as Thailand is dealing with now. If you have access to an effective vaccine (there are a few including Pfizer, Moderna, and even Sputnik V) then I would just get it. Sure, the effectiveness will wane after a year or two, but that's what booster shots are for. Although I don't understand why people wouldn't want to get a vaccine, I respect their decision not to get it. As for myself, I feel as if a tremendous burden has been lifted and I can soon walk into a bar for a pint (just not in the US, haha). -- Quinn68
