"The average woman should aim to consume 2.7 liters [11.4 cups] per day and the average man should aim for 3.7 liters [15.6 cups] per day," he explains.

Now we're up to 15.7 cups per day, from the previously made-up eight cups a day?  This is all a plot by Big Water to get you to drink more. At this point, I have to drink while I'm peeing, just to meet my quota.

I thought that Farkers already drank plenty of water.

From RackHouse Whiskey Club:

"Just three ingredients are needed to make whiskey: water, barley (or other types of grain) and yeast. The kind of grain used varies with the different types of whiskey being made, but all whiskeys need a small amount of malted barley to begin the fermentation process. The water you use for whiskey is often considered the most important factor in making a good whiskey. Clean, clear and free of bad-tasting impurities like iron are the driving factors in selecting water for whiskey. Kentucky, as well as Maryland, Pennsylvania and Indiana, is an area rich with limestone so water there contains carbonates, which can alter the flavor. Scottish water, known for making fine whiskey, is famous for mysterious reasons. Because of the importance of water in how whiskey is made, a large number of distilleries are located next to a river or lake. "

Not long ago I heard or read something from some health "guru" that said you should drink an ounce of water for every pound of body weight per day. I'm at about 205-ish which would mean I'd have to drink like 13 bottles of water every day. Seems excessive to me.

Well...if butt-chugging gets alcohol into your bloodstream faster as claimed, Wouldn't butt-chugging water hydrate you faster too?

So as usual, the answer is, in the butt.

If you don't have a water bottle, pack a bunch of celery and head out.  Sure it's like eating wet hair, but it hydrates, and you'll escape the clutches of big  BPA-free plastic oligarchs!

I'm well aware. The water in my town is especially hard. The mineral buildup has the bathroom faucet half clogged, and the stock pot we use for canning has turned white inside. The knockoff brita filter (changed monthly) at least gets rid of the pool water flavor.

Ah yes as it works off evaporation. Really you cold probably just use an inline carbon filter for drinking water on the cheap.

It's basically just charred coconut shells.

It's also pretty easy a rig up a reverse osmosis into a holding tank. But you'll waste 2/3rd of the water you actually drink.

If you do RO, you really need to hook it up to a charcoal filtered greywater system and water your garden/  lawn with the returns. Or brew Burton-on-Trent style ale with it.

A lot of the "crud" the distiller leaves is probably good for you. Some people pay for mineral water.

Chlorine will outgas from water overnight, if you just leave it in the fridge without a lid on the container.

Oh absolutely. But I spent time where my job was to rig up RO straight to the water feed for companies.

I'm central texas... where ya probably shouldn't waste water.

"Best water the office ever had"

Somehow all my work in thr last decade is basically in water or hvac or refrigeration. Killing the ozone or purifying water and wasting it. I just drink from the tap and I don't believe in AC.

Yeah, pretty much nothing better. In my dumber days, I had a couple hangovers that got the IV treatment, and I will attest, by far the best and fastest solution.

But assuming you don't have a bag of lactated ringers hanging around, coconut water is pretty impressive. Look for potassium, in my experience, and few bevidges out there can match coconut water.

Degassing works, but if you're impatient, toss in a vitamin c tablet or a few squirts of lemon juice. Ascorbic acid neutralizes chlorine and chloramine.

I installed one of those dual canister water filter thingies on my kitchen sink years ago when I was in my tropical fish period.  I replace the filter cartridges once or twice a year and it removes the particulates & chloramine completely, and it's what I use for making stocks, etc.  Far cheaper in the long run than buying bottled water.  Americans have been trained by years of advertising that municipal tap water is somehow unsafe to drink and that they should only buy tap water in bottles from the store, which is of course pure bullshiat (certain neighborhoods in Detroit excluded).
