Karl Marx… You needed a Water Expert

A good friend of mine and I always get into arguments over the merits (me) and demerits (him) of socialism.  While the “ism” is a long argument to be had, let’s just focus on the downside of socialism, as it pertains to the basic human necessity, water.  Venezuela has been in news for so many reasons, mostly all sad.  This story made me shake my head in disbelief on how a system can get such basic things wrong.  Read on.

Interestingly enough, the country is coming off a drought and is extremely water rich,  but 85% of those reserves are on the opposite side of the country where people inhabit.  Lack of power and infrastructure investment made the situation go from bad to dire.  This story is slightly old but quite depictive.

Not facing the reality?? Then there is this concern about filling up swimming pools.  Talk about misplaced priorities.   Read on.

I distinctly remember the fluids mechanics homework i was working on many many years ago and i thought to myself... "shit... i get this ... water stuff..". Like the right buttons get pushed in my brain and this "flow" business actually makes sense to me. That was the origin of the love story and it's been going strong through all these years. I have been called many things, "Water Chick", "Aqua Girl" etc.. but I settled for "Ganges" as my screen name... I believe it serves the purpose of what i am trying to do here beautifully. I hope to make this place my "Mecca" for all things water. A place where people like me with no other agenda but pure love for water can come and hang out with a cuppa.... water.. lol.... fine... beer, coffee, wine, vodka, what have you!! Knowledge does not need to take itself too seriously... hopefully we will pick up a thing or two while we are traipsing along and stumbling away... that is the plan... we shall see..
