    EDIT: I see as I read on, there are just so many threads here about money and how it cripples society's advancement for better. Here is just another example.

    Jul 24 2013: well, son, my question is how much it costs, and how water you get for your money. It sounds expensive to do and you wouldn't get much water. Maybe you can write to someone who is doing this and ask how much the program costs and how much water they are getting.
