[09:33] <FireFly_9> I have found a product that summarizes Hollywood in a nutshell.
[09:33] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> What's that, Hotaru-chan??
[09:33] <@Dr_Xadium> Oh god no she's going to want to buy it
[09:33] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Urusai, baka
[09:34] <@SpeedRcrX> LOL domestic friction there X
[09:34] <@Dr_Xadium> Look to yourself Haruka
[09:34] <@SpeedRcrX> What about me, I'm in post-nuptial bliss here
[09:35] <FireFly_9> Then why has Michiru-momma locked you out of the house? Why are you texting to us from Mo's tavern?
[09:35] * @SpeedRcrX is away: I'm not going to talk about the incident with Hard Gay
[09:35] <FireFly_9> Anyway, this is what I found:
[09:36] <FireFly_9> Bling H2O
[09:36] <Mizunomics01> "Bling Water?"
[09:36] <FireFly_9> It's the invention of Hollywood producer Kevin G. Boyd. It;s water in a frosted glass bottle with a cork and emblazoned with Swarovski crystals.
[09:37] <FireFly_9> It sells for $24 a 750ml bottle.
[09:37] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> And wait this is just water? In a bottle? With diamonds on it??
[09:37] <Mizunomics01> Swarovski crystals are not diamonds.
[09:37] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Nani
[09:38] <@Dr_Xadium> WHAT
[09:38] * [gTV]C'est_la_V looks at the Swarovski crystal-covered phone she made X-chan buy her for her anniversary.
[09:38] <Mizunomics01> Swarovski crystals are simply cut pieces of lead glass.
[09:39] <@Dr_Xadium> . . .
[09:39] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> OMG how much did you pay for this again X-chan???
[09:39] <@Dr_Xadium> T_T
[09:41] <FireFly_9> So Ami-san, you're basically saying that if a rich elite "celeb" simply smashed the safety glass side windows of their "Benzo" or "Rolls", they could have hours of elite fun rolling around in all the pretty, shiny pieces?
[09:41] <Mizunomics01> Basically yes.
[09:41] * [gTV]C'est_la_V can't believe this
[09:42] <flame_SNIPER> I did a paper for some logistics chapter in one of the business courses I took last year
[09:42] <flame_SNIPER> It turns out that for a bottle of regular "premium water" the costs to society are immense
[09:42] <FireFly_9> How so?
[09:44] <flame_SNIPER> Delivering one liter of "Fiji water" to the North America market costs one liter of petroleum, twenty-three liters of water used in the industrial processes, and it releases about two pounds of Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere.
[09:44] <Mizunomics01> Rei-chan, it's bad to switch from metric to imperial like that.
[09:44] <flame_SNIPER> Ami-chan...
[09:44] <Mizunomics01> You may think I am being pedantic, but this is how Mars Orbiters are lost.
[09:44] <flame_SNIPER> ><
[09:45] <flame_SNIPER> Forest for the trees here
[09:45] <@Dr_Xadium> You know. Tap water through a filter is pretty good.
[09:46] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> X-chan! you don't know where that water's been!
[09:46] <@Dr_Xadium> Of course I do! The municipal water system!
[09:46] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> But water in a bottle is from the most pure springs in the natural wilderness!!
[09:47] <FireFly_9> Pissing in the natural spring that supplies Bling H20 would have to be one of the most satisfying experiences that a human being could ever enjoy.
[09:47] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> HOTARU-CHAN SAID "PISSING" :O
[09:47] <FireFly_9> MY GOD I am an ADULT, Sempai!
[09:47] * [gTV]C'est_la_V corks her ears
[09:48] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> I don't want to hear about the adult things you do!!
[09:48] <FireFly_9> D:
[09:49] <@Dr_Xadium> Mina I thought you fostered the illusion of drinking elite water by reusing the bottles.
[09:50] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> I did but then someone told me that wasn't good because the bottles would disintegrate into the water because they were made to be recycled so now I just buy fresh new bottles every time
[09:50] <@Dr_Xadium> ... god woman drink from the tap
[09:50] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> T_T X-chan wants me to DIE
[09:50] <FireFly_9> There's NOTHING wrong with tap water, sempai ><
[09:51] <@Dr_Xadium> I don't want you to die ><
[09:51] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> IF there's nothing wrong with tap water, why are so many bottles sold??
[09:52] <@Dr_Xadium> Tap water is not good EVERYWHERE. But with a simple filter, you get the same thing as what's in the bottle.
[09:52] <flame_SNIPER> For the love of god what's next, DESIGNER OXYGEN!?
[09:52] <Mizunomics01>
[09:52] <flame_SNIPER> ...
[09:53] <flame_SNIPER> Some days I just want to give up on the world
[09:54] <flame_SNIPER> Bottled water is for idiots. Expensive bottled water is for rich idiots. So the only thing to glean from all this is that we are all poor. Which is precisely what Bling, in all its incarnations, is supposed to tell us. Mission accomplished.
[09:55] <FireFly_9> Daisani and Aquafina basically are filtered tap water. I don't know what this is, but sub-moronic doesn't seem to cover it.
[09:56] * [gTV]C'est_la_V is away: "I'm blingin' it!"
