It's a fresh experience.

no no no no no! You have the wrong idea here. Sewers are for ****, DRAINS are just for storm-water. It's clean, for the most part. And hella fun.

Oh, for heaven's sake! I swear, it's clean down there. All a storm drain is is a creek with a roof on it. They empty out directly into local streams. You never see a sewer do that.

It's so clean, because it gets washed out every time it rains, that I wouldn't hesitate to hug my own grandmother after walking through there. So say what you will, but you're missing out. Wuss.

You realize the water washes everything else on the ground down there too... what you think is clean water is actually full of dirt and everything else you find on the floor.

As a wise man once put it:

"In life, you make choices. You can stay in bed and take no risks, or you can go out and get a life. This involves the taking of risks, telling of yarns, breaking of silly laws which restrict your freedom, finding out things of an unusual or interesting nature. Now, some people take drugs, some people watch TV, some people drive cars faster than the posted speed limit, some people get heavily into teletubbies, some people play golf. Since we find these things not very interesting, we explore drains."

Go out and get your boots dirty, wuss. It's worth it.
