Clothes (or tumble as they are commonly called) dyiers are commonplace.

Many are combined in the same machine as the washer itself and use a condensing system so no tubing required to vent them.

That said there is something just nice about clothes that have been dried naturally in the sun and breeze on a good old fashioned washing line
Those are easy to find- they are the long, narrow slats that one drapes the wet clothes over..... Clothes driers are rare in Europe and I assume this is true of the UK also (yes, I know the UK is part of Europe but it is.... a different part where the mainland European 'rules and methods' often do not apply).

That is pretty neat.  I think I have only seen one "all in one" machine before.  Good for saving space, but doubles the time to do laundry.

Eeew.  Towels that are rough and crispy.  Colors faded from UV.  Clothes full of pollen allergens.  Clothesline marks.  Bird mess.  Squirrels running across.  Humidity.

I'll take a dryer :)

Only if you have a second load to do whilst the first load is drying ;)

Very true.  But I suspect most or at least many of us do....
Speaking of which, I am washing three loads this morning.

I finally found it..... the reason for the 'face-palm' emoticon. We do not seem to have one around here, which is rather amazing IMO. Anyway, it is used a lot and often fits pretty well but I finally found the absolutely ideal, perfect 'thing' for that emoticon.....

https://www.facebook.com/lchaithesis/videos/364837930674880/

What makes it so special is that this happened at Cornell, not Springfield Community College (on the Simpsons) during a night class. Oh no, this happened at a REAL school and as it appears to be a dissertation, it means that this person is a graduate student, having already received a Bachelor's degree and gone on with at least another 1 1/2 years of formal education.

Yep, these are certainly the people I want tinkering around and 'improving' my Constitution. (the next word suggested by my spell- checker after 'constitution' was 'constipation', and I had to think about that for a moment as to which one applied best)

It was painful to watch.

1.  Because she’s a terrible speaker.
2.  Because stripping down to her underwear didn’t help, it was just sad.

That was my point- sad, miss- directed, a foolish response, not much of a point about others criticizing any person's clothing. I think I understand her motivation, I just do not agree that what she did was an effective way to respond. In fact, I think the best response would either be 1) no response, or 2) a quiet (i.e., NOT FaceTwit!!!!!) but firm statement, probably best in writing, to the president of the University.... with all her clothes on.

Some of these newer 'responses' to perceived or perhaps even real insults are strange and again, IMO, not nearly as effective as they could be. I am speaking generally here; no doubt in cases such as Harvey Weinstein, someone had to run the proverbial flag way, way up the flagpole at personal embarrassment, personal criticism and attacks, and very likely damage or even outright loss of the whistle-blower's livelihood.

Makes me wonder if the same person had a stranger visit her domicile and commented on it being too cold there if this woman would set herself on fire to 'teach him a lesson'?

edited to add words to make the last sentence make sense. :-(

That poor human being has issues. I suspect primarily caused by disinformation poison disguised as education.

Me neither.  I zoomed to see her undress and then aborted.

I just read more about this video. Apparently she was presenting her senior thesis at Cornell University. I looked it up and on average, Cornell costs $67,000/year or $280,000 for a 4 year degree. I think she should demand her money back as they obviously didn't teach her anything of value.
