Number 4: What a waste "I live in a very small town in the middle of nowhere. The town is run by a bunch of old people who don't give a * about anything that causes them trouble. The sewage lagoon for our town is dry, nothing but weeds. The people in charge say that it's a good thing that the water is just sinking into the ground!
