Jokes on us though, we still buy the shiat from Pepsi Co when in reality those 'spring' waters are prolly some guy named Buck filling them up in his bath tub.

Did you know you're supposed to drink 64 glasses of water per day and the human body is 97% water?

Sorry, I still do Diet Mt Dew, and a fair amount of Crystal Light iced tea, or lemonade. I must have screwed up tastebuds or something because to me plain water just tastes bitter as hell.

58 gallons of water + 44 gallons of soda = 102 gallons per year

So 35 ounces of water a day?! Are most people walking around severely dehydrated all the time?

I remember the crys of alarum and the wailing of mothers in the night when the soda bottle went from 8oz to 16 at the direction of Big Sugar.
And then the calorie lies began.
Good times.

I still don't get bottled water, or filtered water so much.

When I'm thirsty I have this little knob I can turn. Water comes out and I drink it. It's so cheap sometimes I just spray it all over myself.

Apparently it's more tightly controlled than the stuff on the shelves, and it's piped right to my house.

What *are* these electrolytes? Do you even know?
They're... what they use to make Brawndo!
But *why* do they use them to make Brawndo?
Because Brawndo's got electrolytes.

Ahh, the power of marketing propaganda vs stupid people.

If you buy expensive "imported" water in bottles, all you are doing is supporting the privatization of the worlds water supply. People are being arrested and jailed for tapping into aquifers that have been monopolized by the soda pop companies, even from their own land. The world bank manufactures a debt in a nation like Fiji or Argentina or Nicaragua by exploiting natural disasters or using the United Nations to put pressure on those countries to upgrade infrastructure, then demand those nations borrow money from that World Bank, and the politicians of those countries in their efforts to pay off those "debts", privatize and sell off the entire country's water supply to a soda pop company in return for lots of cash money for themselves.

Farmers who were once able to pump water for their crops from their own wells, now have to pay for that same water, and pay a LOT.

It's WATER, people. WATER.

Tap water is filtered water.  You can tell by it not looking or tasting like lake water.  Bottled water is only tap filtered once more.

Our tap water is fantastic. Once, however, i went to Philadelphia and literally gagged drinking a glass of tap water, and I now know not everyone has it as good as me.

Don't drink lake water.

I had to buy bottled water when I lived in Philly.  The city water was like drinking out of a swimming pool.  It was disgusting.  The filtered water out here in the suburbs is good.

/can easily drink a few gallons of water a day

Not just imported, either. Let's take "Ice Mountain" as an example. The perception: water from a spring somewhere in the mountains. The reality: water pumped out from under central Michigan on an industrial scale, with massive tax breaks from the state.

I remember when and why I got into the habit of bottled water.

I moved into a new apartment.  It was in a kinda-old building, maybe 40 or 50 years old.  The water had a funny, foul taste to it.  I would have coped with the taste, but I used it for watering my plants.

My houseplants began to die, rapidly.  Turning yellow and sickly within just a few days, with the only change being the new city water.

I stopped drinking the water, and started buying bottles and jugs of water at the store for drinking and watering houseplants.

Last Christmas I got a Pur filter for the sink.  Not perfect, but I can tell it's gone a long way to making the water drinkable.  I tried using it on the plants.  Whatever was in the water that was killing the plants was filtered out.

If you've got really good local water, good for you, but water for others may well be horrible.  Even if it's officially okay, once it leaves the water mains and goes through old pipes into old buildings, it can be pretty nasty.
