HotIgneous Intruder: Free clean water is a human right.

Then producing and distributing free clean water is a human obligation. Get to work.

I'll occassionally buy a bottle of water. I'm in a shop, I'm thirsty and it's convenient to grab a bottle. I don't care too much about 17p or 24p (that's about 15c in US money).

The sort of cretins that somehow got enough money that they could afford half a dozen bottles of Evian at £1 a go in each shop deserve to get their money taken from them and passed to someone else. It's not even like there's any deception involved or skullduggery. There's plenty of TV programmes and reports that tell people that tap water is just as pure, just as clean, and still they keep on buying farking water to drink.

Bacontastesgood: HotIgneous Intruder: Yeah, funny right?
I was up in Pennsylvania, in one of the centers of the fracking business, and bought a few bottles of water at the supermarket. The cashier said how great it was that the water was so cheap.
I didn't tell the idiot what I really thought about having to buy water at any price or what I though about the fracking destroying the water quality as we stood there.

And you know the water quality was bad, how?

He drank the Kool-Aid.

Forbidden Doughnut: Glad I live where this isn't a problem

yeah, I really miss Anchorage for that.  And to be clear, I was complaining about the taste of the water, and how it treated my hair in the shower.  We've never lived anywhere that I thought it was a safety issue.  Except for my son.  The fluoride must have addled his brain, as he's now an "anti-fluoride" crusader.

Seussie: This is unfair.  Have you tasted the water in Suffolk, or Cambs?  It's pure agriculture runoff.. with all the calcium and phosphates, when we lived there, we glowed in the dark!

As much as I agree with Penn & Teller regarding bottled water, some municipalities across the US fail hard at providing water that's drinkable, and I can understand why people buy filters or opt out entirely...( at least for drinking)
