Desalination

Someone needs to tell Wally that just because pepper is black, and salt is white, that does not somehow make them spice opposites with the power of canceling each other out. In fact, together they can be quite intense. Personally I’ve become somewhat desensitized to spices. These days I add lots of salt and pepper to all my food (often garlic powder too) because otherwise it just tastes too bland to me. Guess I just like my food spicy, my favorite dishes are hot Thai, Cajun and Mexican dishes.

The actual process of desalination is becoming more and more popular, places like the Middle East have been using it for quite some time, with ocean water more readily available than fresh water sources in that region. Since pepper doesn’t work, desalination plants rely mostly on the techniques of reverse osmosis or multi-stage flash for making saltwater drinkable.

Wally and Osborne shouldn’t be too concerned with desalination in Antarctica… over two thirds of the world’s fresh water is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps.

    hmm, what if you tried Tabasco sauce in that….

    i guess they have this huge thing where they get tons of stuff like donuts.
    or maybe it just washed up on shore

  • As to not running out of fresh water any time soon those polar caps are melting more and more each year so for the time being they are (pardon the punn) swomming in the stuff!

  • Todd

    Mmmm…. Spicy Thai is just about the grandest thing that has ever graced the the surface of the Earth. I must agree with you, Tyler, foods that aren’t spicy aren’t nearly as good. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Rob H.

    Osboarne’s face in the last panel needs to be an emote. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • Lee

    If there *was* a cheap way to distill fresh water out of seawater it would solve a lot of the world’s environmental problems. Probably create a whole lot of new ones, though, the human race being what we are

  • Metroplex

    if you look very closely at osbourne you will see that he has a bright light surrounding him because of the flame! ๐Ÿ˜• ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ’ก ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ โ— :mrgreen:

  • somebody

    dude, if you like spicy food you should definitely try Indian. (if you’ve got a dining partner who fears the spicy, get them chicken tikka masala–no one doesn’t like it. you should try vindaloo. it’s tastey.)

  • Metroplex! Good eye! I usually see stuff like that! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy (Early) Birthday, Penguin Boy !
