Holy crap.  I think I need to go get my morning coffee.  Those comments were from another dimension...

Instead of buying bottled water...just about every home/apartment/trailer as something call a faucet...which water comes out of. It doesn't cost anything and there's no additional polluting as with plastic bottles.

Fixed.  I take it you've never been responsible for a water bill?  It changes based on how much water comes through your faucets...

Depends on the city.  I've been drinking tap water in my city almost my entire life and have never had a problem with it.  It wasn't until I temporarily moved away for a few years to a smaller town that I couldn't drink the tap water because it tasted disgusting.

In some municipalities, you pay a flat rate, or it's built into your local taxes.

Unless you have your faucets running 24/7, your water bill doesn't go up that much, if anything noticable, for drinking a glass of water a day.

Most people who live in an aparetment get their water included in their rent.

If you own a home and are worried about the extra dollar your bill might go up per month from drinking some water, then maybe home ownership isn't for you.

Ayup. Never had a problem with water in the places I live, but if you go to certain parts of Coon Rapids, MN the water is really heavy. It comes out of the tap white and tastes disgusting. You need to get a filtration system or buy jugs of water at the grocery store.

No problem with Daytona Beach water either... oh well, I feel bad for people whose cities/towns don't give a fark about their water systems.

It's pretty silly for the First Lady to up and decide this is a problem. If there were mountains of data across years of studies reflecting either a chronic underhydration in the US populace (due to overreliance on sugary substitute beverages for example) or some sort of health benefits to drinking it then she might have a point.

Other first ladies took really bold stances on cutting edge issues like saying no to drugs and being learnt to reading. It's clear that Michelle is just being uppity. How is it racist to point that out with disingenuous mocking?

NY City water consistently rates as some of the best tasting even above most bottled waters.

That was the funniest episode of BS ever.

(for those who never saw it) Penn and Teller made up a bunch of fancy looking water bottles and then held a "High End Water Tasting Experience" in a fancy looking setting. Various "taster" extolled the virtues of various bottles, comparing and contrasting them to each other. Some tried to buy bottles to take home.

Then they cut to a scene of Teller in the back alley, filling ALL of the bottles from a garden hose attached to the faucet on the side of the building.

Pure comedy gold.

Go to some remote part of a Third World country sometime, were, if there are pipes, what comes out is brown and any water you drink without boiling gives you parasites or dysentery. Then you can complain about the water supply. Until then, enjoy your nearly perfect, low cost public water system.

Most best-selling bottled water actually comes out of city taps, which is why it's such a rip-off. And, as numerous blind taste tests over the years have shown, water from the taps of some of the nation's largest cities consistently tastes better than processed bottled water.

It's true.

We have a private well and it is quite tasty too.

Speaking of water:

I'd suggest this to anyone curious about the current state of our water. More or less, there is no way we'll be able to have water as cheap and readily available in the next 50 years as we do now. We can, however, use it smarter while we can to make it last longer.

Actually the health benefit point is that all the pre-diabetic hov-a-round bound fatty fats prolly don't need that sixth big-gulp... put it down and drink water instead. But you knew that.

No, I don't think that was his point.

Unless you think "potable" means "tasty", which it does not.
