Soaking the public...

No singing in the shower? Strewth

Australians may want to celebrate England's latest cricketing disaster, but they shouldn't do it by singing in the shower.
EnergyAustralia, one of the country's largest electricity suppliers, says exercising the vocal cords in the bathroom adds an extra 9.08 minutes to a normal scrub.
Singing, daydreaming, shaving and other "non-essential activities" in the shower are adding to the average family's power bills and also contributing to global warming, it says.
With the nation in the grip of its worst drought in 100 years and state governments warning of harsh water restrictions in the summer, the shower has become the latest target for energy and water-saving ideas.
"You use enough electricity during one minute of showering to run your television for four hours," said Paul Myors, the company's energy efficiency expert. "If the average family cut their showers by two minutes they would save just over $100 (£40) a year."
