The Fishbowl Sink Urges You To Conserve... Ooooooooor Kill A Helpless Goldfish

This is a sink that uses water from a fishbowl to wash your hands. If you drain too much, you kill the fish. HA -- LIKE ANY OF YOU WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER USING THE BATHROOM ANYWAYS! I'm serious ladies, most guys are disgusting. If you did a survey of what percentage of men walk around with penis dust on their hands all day it's easily over 100%. Except me, I scrub till I bleed.

As you use the Poor Little Fish Sink, designed by Yan Lu, the water in the fishbowl slowly drains away. So if you use too much the goldfish will meet an untimely demise. According to Yan the "Poor Little Fish basin offers an emotional way to persuade consumers to think about saving water, by making consumption tangible" though I'm sure there are still a lot of people who would value clean hands over the life of a small fish.


Of course thanks to some clever and hidden plumbing in the base of the sink, the water that comes out of the faucet doesn't actually come from the fish tank, nor will it ever drain out completely. And when shut off the water in the bowl does slowly refill so the fish is never in any real danger

Hoho, very clever! But a couple things: 1) I would never use fish-water to wash my hands in the first place so congratulations -- conservation: 1, GW cleanliness: 0. Unfortunately, 2) this would actually prove an effective way to get men to use MORE water because they want to kill the fish but 3) boy are they gonna be disappointed when they can't until 4) somebody stands on the sink and pees in the bowl. Basically, that fish is f***ed.

Poor Little Fish Sink - Conserve Water Or The Goldfish Gets It [ohgizmo]

Thanks to david, who pees in the sink and washes his hands with a Wet-Nap like somebody who actually respects the planet we live on. Good lookin', david.
