The Wonderful Washing Machine

I’ve been captivated by this video of Hans Rosling, a professor of global health at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, singing the praises of the washing machine.

Who knew that the humble washer had such far-reaching influence on society? For while people concerned with the state of the environment would willingly give up their cars (or at least use them less often), who among us would surrender her washing machine for a tub and washboard?

Next time I do the laundry (which should be this afternoon) I’ll do it with pride and respect.
