As long as you've "come clean" about that I'm going to admit that back
in my road warrior days I did eggsackly the same thing, carrying a
fairly small shower head I'd drilled the restriction out of, along with
a small pair of slip joint pliers to install it with.
I gave that up after 911, when having those things in my carrion luggage
frequently caused me delays going through security.
Way back when, maybe in the seventies, I'd also carry a 75 watt light
bulb cushioned inside a pair of foam rubber blocks. That was needed
because lots of hotels had put 40 watt bulbs in their bedside lamps to
cut their electric bill, which didn't give near enough light to read by.
Now, most of the hotels I visit have switched to CF bulbs so that
problem has gone away.
Thanks for the mammaries,
Talk about missing things? What I miss were the amenities on airline
flight back when I started traveling that way in the late 50s.
Even in the lowest class seats you got free alcoholic drinks, free
smokes, and delicious meals including shrimp cocktails, steaks and such.
And, a lot more leg room too.
Course, everything has its price, and the price of airline tickets
relative to the cost of living was a LOT higher back then. But, what the
heck, it was my employers who were buying my tickets back then. <G>
The whole thing is stupid. Not only is the regulation overreaching
and control-freakish, I find that I take MUCH shorter showers when
using non-low-flow shower heads.
Oh, and Consumer Reports has been a joke for some time now.
You mean.... you don't want the government to control your
shower head? Next thing, you'll say that you don't want the
government controlling your toilet. Where would we be if we
all had unregulated toilets?
Just imagine the founding fathers, creating a nation of
great liberty and freedom. And a couple generations later,
people are reporting their neighbors for having illegal
shower heads, and high flow toilets. They would be rolling
over in their graves with shame.

They'd be much more ashamed of an over-populated land that in no way
shape or form would ever have enough resources for its people to
independently live as their extravagant desires would like. Face it,
when the country was 1% full it was a lot different than it is now.
We could price water at its true cost in the west, but then what
would we do with all the refugees?
The country is much less than 1% full.
Assuming everybody was jammed together like at a rock concert - 4 sq ft per
person - the 300,000,000 of this land would take up 1.2 billion sq ft., or
about 43 square miles (about 1/8th the size of New York City).
Do you mean the Star Face Mole, the Tasmanian Tadpole, and the San Fernando
