Red Fla-Vor-Ice gives you cancer and the green ones make you horny - so I've heard.

I'm not sure about the blue ones, but they are handy to keep in mind when some wise-ass claims there is no such thing as 'blue food'.

Thanks, Andrew, I had considered something like a sport bottle at one point, but disposable is an important consideration for me. If it gets dropped, crushed, or lost - no biggie. And it happens a lot at work. Plus I did throw one down in a bad moment at work when a piece of equipment kept failing whenever I turned my back on it, literally, managed to split it open and send water everywhere, made a really impressive sound though.

Besides drink clear liquid from an unmarked bottle at work inevitably leads someone to ask the obvious question, "Water?" My usual answer is "Gin."

Not always, I think a lot of times problems with things never come out right away usually after 2 to 4 years and after a decent amount of people die.

Yeah, but also a lot bogus health "risks" come out in the news that are wildly exaggerated so they can buy air time.  Like the "dangers" of exploding Bic Lighters which killed a whopping ONE person. 

Meanwhile, heart disease kills about 400,000 people each year, but that doesn't make for exciting journalism.

Is that true?
I love taking my water out of the freezer and drinking it with ice crystals.


i think its bs.  A health risk like this would come out in the news if it was real.

BTW, the email (like most of it's type) is complete BS.  I check it out on snopes.com (a good site to go to the next time you get one of these 'warnings" in the mail.

Heck, after I posted that I got myself one of the purple ones from my freezer.

I buy 'em at the Dollar General Store. I think the 100 pack is $2.00!

Fla-Vor-Ice and ramen...you could feed yourself for about $2 a day.  Isn't it scary how cheap they are?  I'm almost certain that ramen is a weird kind of worm that boils to the surface and is harvested by child workers.  Fla-Vor-Ice must be made from liquefied people or something like that.

Well what I've thought for a long time turns out to be true ... I've stuck to my guns that this was often the case and even in my own house I was told I didn't know what I was talking about as Ms Cheeze stood there sucking on her $2.50 a liter bottle water, 4X the cost of gas. Well Aquafina is the single biggest bottled water brand, and its bottles are currently labeled "P.W.S." The new labels will spell out "public water source."

Anybody remember back in the day when Perrier was busted for selling nothing more than tap water, and all those status hungry folks where is shock? Seems they have benzene in the water, something found in tap water but nothing in spring water.

Meanwhile the healthy seeking bottled water drinkers are creating more waste ...

South Africa's water is, for the most part, the cleanest water anywhere and those that drink EL SPITTO and LOS BACKWASH bottled water locally are probably just trying to show that they can afford to drink the stuff, which is quite expensive here.

No, I'm with Captain Haddock on the mineral water issue: I drink tap water and nothing else resembling H2O, unless I am on the road somewhere, then I will buy a bottle of Eau De Toilette and drink it.  Buggedout

Pretty sure most bottled water isn't even as good for you as most tap water, especially tap water filtered through a Brita jug. I'd assume that's even more true in rural places like where I live where there's very little pollution.

Tap water is, by and large, quite pure.  I drink lots of water daily and it all comes from the water fountain in our building.  I just fill up my big cup or jug and take it back to my shop. 

Brita filters are an activated charcoal.  That means it should capture some chemical contaminants and will improve the taste.  It will not do anything for stuff like bacteria or protozoa.  Still, if you don't like the taste of your tap water, a Brita filter should solve the problem.

I have been drinking tap water that comes from a well everyday for almost 10 years and I haven't gotten sick yet. I see no reason to buy bottled water unless I'm at a jobsite or on the road, otherwise its just a waste of my money.
