At 50 cents per cubic meter (roughly $0.00189 per gallon) -- which is our municipal water rate where I live in Michigan -- it'll take about a hundred years to pay for that toilet in reduced water bills. A quick Google search turned up rates for Tucson (I'm taking a guess here that water rates in the Southwest are at or near the highest in the country, and Tucson was the first city that popped into my head out there) of about double that, so the payoff out West is maybe 50 years. Save water because it's the right thing to do, but don't pretend these toilets are going to pay for themselves anytime soon. They're not.

Did anyone else notice the date on this story? cl
You got the "he" part right. The antennae are a dead giveaway -- male moths have huge feathery antennae like that so they can smell the females' scent. I believe what you've got there is a Polyphemus moth, but it's really hard to tell without seeing the upper surface of the wings. It looks too light to be a Cecropia moth, but that's another possibility. cl

I am so terribly disappointed that neither this story nor the version I sent in had audio of the 9-1-1 call. My mind, however, is reading the 9-1-1 operator's lines in Sir Alec Guinness's voice: "You want to stop right now." cl

Anyone seen Paris Hilton lately? cl
That's OK at the airport as long as it's in a clear one-quart resealable plastic bag, right? cl
bonmot: May I introduce you to Xzibit and the "Yo Dawg" meme? (Which might actually be a good name for Xzibit and his 'posse', not that anyone would ever call it that now.) cl
