Summer is in full swing and it is important to drink a lot of water.

What is your favorite brand? There are subtle taste differences. I like Poland Spring the best.

Mid-central Pacific is the best.
Don't be swayed by the Mediterranean-coastal fans, it's awful.

Buying a $60.00 video game from a water bottler: one luxury car with generous features

It's a bit of a no brainer. I almost wish I'd had the idea of bottling and selling water at markups stretching all the way to 1,000% and beyond and was able to get investors to actually believe that it would work, but I don't think I'd be able to live with myself. I know there's costs of transportation and stocking to be taken into consideration, but these guys must be fucking rolling in it.

If your thing is convenience on the go, just fill up a bottle or two at home next time and skip the ridiculous store cost. If it's a long trip, use some gallon jugs. If you care about quality that much, invest in a home-wide purifier. Then you can shower in liquid gold.

It's interesting that asking for a glass of water has changed a bit over the years. Instead of nearly guaranteed acquiescence, people sometimes now look at you like you've grown a third head.

I asked a glass of tap water all day for a drink and never got anything.

5 Gallon jugs cost like $6. It is actually pretty affordable.

Overpaying but affordable is still overpaying. Poland Spring is a bit on the acidic side, testing from the upper 5's to mid 6's depending on source. You might be better off with tap water.

So many people have been convinced their water is poisonous though that I'm fairly sure the bottled water industry's cynical future in overcharging for one of the fundamental building blocks of life on Earth is secure.

All water on the east coast is slightly acidic. Our soil is acidic from acid rain due to industrialization.

i like my water heated and poured through ground-up coffee beans, brewed with barley and distilled, or  . . .  i see why it takes me longer and longer to come back here. Really, "Favorite brand of water"? it's a couple of hydrogen atoms that have a commitment to an oxygen atom and somehow became a topic.

I've never tasted the sterile water for injection from work, but I'm told it's remarkable in how little taste it can have (obviously because there's fuckall in it). It's apparently somewhat disconcerting.

yes, water.

today we are gathered to mourn the passing of water.

i wake at two a m to pass water into a bowl that passes water into a water purification system that passes it on to Nestle that bottles it for millennials. Fucking Nestle© is making millions for taking the piss out of old men like me to bottle it and sell it back to you young motherfuckers for your hydration. i cannot believe i've lived to see the day that reclaimed water made it as a topic on a gaming forum.

And that the moderation staff didn't have a snide remark about trolling the membership about an affiliation with a cult because the members were stocking up on filtered water in the event of a world wide catastrophe, where the only things to to survive would be the moderation staff of a gaming forum and the people that bought Obama's guns. . . .
