# Curly on Recycling

By Murray Bourne, 25 Feb 2005

I find Koizumi's weekly mails interesting and often amusing. His latest on recycling in Japan (Koizumi Cabinet E-mail Magazine) pressed a button. I found the bit on toilets quite something (you should see Japanese toilets...!)

Actually, Japan is terribly polluted - I am always amazed that visitors say what a lovely green country Japan is. Crap. It's all concrete and the bits that aren't are because it's too hilly to build there.

Sure, they have recycle bins everywhere - but if they didn't produce so much useless packaging for absolutely everything in the first place, a lot less resources would need recycling.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
