Four-Minute Hourglass Shower Timer for Drought-Stricken Georgia Folks, Smelly Hippies

Illustration for article titled Four-Minute Hourglass Shower Timer for Drought-Stricken Georgia Folks, Smelly Hippies

Unlike the rest of the Giz crew (especially Chen), I shower daily. But I'm also currently located at ground zero for god's wrath. Despite the governor's public missive for divine relief, Georgia's still got less moisture than scarecrow, which is really the only reason this four-minute shower timer in hourglass form interests me. It's only three bucks, and I'd probably mostly ignore its silent screaming, but I feel like I might shower just a little bit faster. Every drop counts right?

@shiftyeyedgoat: Okay, I hope you were joking.

As for the short-shower concept, I started turning off the water when I am scrubbing (I am a stinky guy and need plenty of scrub-time), and that cut my showers down under the 4 minute range without much effort. It works well, but I must admit that I hate how cold it is. Plus, there is something particularly degrading about standing in a shower, completely wet and cold, and not having water running. Maybe in a few decades I will get over it, but I doubt it.
