Question The "I Wonder" Thread

Like eyeryone else, I see, hear, smell, taste and feel things that make me say " I wonder" . We all have these thoughts and maybe if we share them we can come up with some answers. PLEASE, no politics or religeon!!!

I'll start it off:
When you flush a toilet in Venice, Italy, where does it go?

I wonder,

Sewage facilities have condom extractors and the some actually send the condoms for recycling. I wonder if the piles of condoms could be made in to a superball. From a ball to a ball.

Looks like they have had to navigate the turds!
Plans are afoot as well to improve Venice's treatment of sewage, which for centuries has been dumped directly into the canals.

Have you ever been to Venice? The water already looks "cesspooly" as it is...doubt anyone would notice anyway.

Wonder if New Orleans should just give up on the levees and be renamed "New Venice" instead...

Plans are afoot as well to improve Venice's treatment of sewage, which for centuries has been dumped directly into the canals. Venetians are now installing septic tanks as buildings and market areas undergo renovation, and authorities hope that within the next two decades, traditional sewer pipes can deliver the city's waste to mainland water-treatment facilities. Finally, St. Mark's Square, the city's lowest point and most frequently flooded area, is slated for a $50 million project to rebuild its drainage system.

I wonder what they do with all the plastic bottles they encourage you to bring in for recycling? Word is little of it is recycled. No market apparently.

Plastics brokers send them to China on freighters in 40' containers in loads of 20+ metric tons where they are recycled into other plastic "new" stuff that people buy at WalMart...and loads of other places.
