Not to be .. I can't think of the word now, but >_> some places I would rather spend the $1.25 or whatever than drink the tap.. I.E. DISNEYWORLD IS FULL OF NASTY PEOPLE. <_<

I will admit, I do buy bottled water when I'm out, and sometimes at home - but more because it's easier to carry around in a bottle than a cup. It's not any "better" IMO, I just happen to like the bottles. I like bottled or canned soda for the same reason.

I still don't understand why people want to buy bottled water at a fast food place instead of just getting some tap water for free. Everyone is just crazy...

Penn and Teller also proved that a lot of rich American are only too eager to spend their money on frivolous things just to show off.

Penn and Teller actually had an episode on "Bullshit" where they ripped on the bottle water industry. Natural spring water is, in some cases, actually *less* pure than municipal water sources because it doesn't go through the same treatment process.

In other cases, some companies just bottle regular tap water and slap a label on them saying it's spring water. Bottom line - "bling water" is a scam geared toward what's known in marketing as "snob appeal".

Also, what's next are Korova milk bars which serve milk, milk-plus, milk-plus-vilocet, or synthimesc, or drencrom which is what we're having. This'll sharpen you up and make you ready for a little bit of the old ultra-violence.

Yes, Oxy bars exist. There was (is) one in Arundel Mills Mall. And BTW, I won't buy that water. Tap water forever!
