Don't waste your money...

Take a few ounces of water. Garnish with an elegant bottle and a large price tag. Convince Americans it's cool. Somehow, in the 1990s, a French company called Perrier did that, and now, America is getting soaked.

Thing is, I still buy bottled water because the tap water where I live and work is hideous, it reeks of chlorine like a swimming pool, especially lately (they must have upped the chlorine for spring/summer I'm guessing). So the bottled water is at least better because it does not taste or smell of chemicals. [img]smile.gif[/img]

I love bottled water....add yeast and hops, even some sugar and a few bubbles. Makes you walk and talk funny every time, you can even get it in cans! Whoever thought of bottled water deserves a beer...

Damn! I was going to point out Evian backwards is naive, but they beat me to it <_<

I like bottled water because it's easier to carry around rather than a sink and it's usually cold. Just trivial reasons really.

But personally I make a point not to buy bottled water, people have asked me for money to buy bottled water from the machines and I point at the fountain right next to it and say "LOOK! FREE WATER!"

Nah, I've never had to but then again I've only travelled in Europe so I always drink out of the tap and when hiking on mountains I drink outa streams.

Well, since the water in DC goes through tertiary treatment, its pretty good. Then again, sometimes storm water gets in there. People say the lead seeping off the pipes in DC is bad, but I prefer 2% lead water over pure water. Theres no flavor, no zest in bottled water.

I'm what people call a water snob! lol I don't drink tap water unless I'm really desperate. It mostly stems from the fact that I grew up on a farm and our water there was from a natural spring and so no tap water can compare to that.

Yay for bottled water!

Yikes... expensive water.

Well here we NEED bottled water. Our tap water is undrinkable. Sucks.

We could purchase purified water for a dollar every 5 gallons more or less...

And bottled water costs less than a dollar
