Another snippet

"I remember during the first oil shock in the early 1970s, when oil rocketed to US$40 (RM152) a barrel, many countries took measures ・some drastic, some innovative to reduce oil usage. Air-conditioners were turned up a few extra degrees, cars were allowed on roads on alternative days depending on whether their number plates end with an odd or even number, many countries promoted cycling to work and young couples were encouraged to take cold baths in winter together! Come to think of it, it can be quite fun. " -

Now if Malaysia would actually try these ideas, what will they think of next? My best bet is to start or encourage car pooling I guess, but taking cold showers together? That idea leaves me freezing.
