Posted:dehydrated water... Believe it or not you can buy this. Well it is more thickened rather than dehydrated but it is still 100% water just thicker, it is used in hospitals for when people have trouble swallowing tables.

to be fair the people selling it must be geniuses if they can get people to buy it, like selling ice to eskimos (are eskimos still pc?)

Although reading it, it's actually not just water, it's meant to contain fruit juice so it's like that volvic touch of fruit stuff they charge 1.50 for 250ml

swallowing tables would be the greatest magic trick ... ever! laugh3

Posted:bottled water IS selling ice to eskimos!

its selling water and chemicals to a person for three dollars when they get FREE water and an apple for like 20 cents. such a joke.

there was a town in australia that is actually planning to ban the sale of bottled water to prevent a factory being built. and of course it will be good for the environment as it will stop the industry chain that uses energy to make an essentially useless product.

Posted:Bottled water does have uses, in bars and clubs for drivers or at festivals where there is limited water supplies and you want a drink. but people who buy it and leave it in the fridge at home worry me. I watched richard hammond's - "should I worry about... tap water" and he found that it was extremely healthy and any thing that says - bottled water on the label is just tap water anyway. he even tried selling tap water from a jug - no buyers at all. he then put it in a bottle with a label and still told people it was tap water and sold every single one.

Posted:They use a product called Thick-it made by hormell believe it or not, its a powder almost like a cornstarch made for tickening cool liquids so people can swallow it. It comes in everything from slightly thick to pudding thick... imagine drinking pudding. Ew. But when the alternitive is inhaling normal water or having it drool all over because you can't swallow, its better.

Back on topic. Bottled water has its uses, but ever since I got a pretty refillable one, I've never looked back and the cash you shell out to get one is made back so fast, its amazing.

The ones making the product aren't idiots, now, are they? They are making money off of idiots. And I consider that to be a noble cause.

I choose not to purchase such products because I fancy myself other than an idiot.

Posted:I love bottled water drinkers...
Well, I actually love to mess with their heads.

At work we have this guy who only drinks "Spa Blue". He doesn't like tapwater, het hates it.

So yeah right, like we'd get expensive water for in the fridge. Now what we do, we just take a bottle of "blue" and keep filling it with regular tap-water. The guy has been working with us for about 3 months and still thinks he is only drinking "blue".

Oh if you want to copy a joke like this, here's a tip. Fill the bottle and poor out one glass, otherwise they might get cautious when they see the label is broken ;-)
