Ugh. How stupid is bottled water to you?

Before... We turned on the tap, and we drank from it. Now.... Think about this. Something you could get for FREE... originally... Now... Someone, some company in North Dakota, turns on some sort of tap, PUTS IT IN A PLASTIC BOTTLE, AND SELLS IT TO YOU! RIDICULOUS! The stupidity of bottled water! Okay, for those who believe it's convenient... Buy ONE bottle of bottled water. Drink it. Fill it with water from home. Drink it. Reuse. For those who are concerned with the water supply- It's easy to do a quick check on your water quality on the internet, or just by buying a cheap testing kit if you want to. Most people just don't know how good their water is. It's most likely better than you think. I'm taking a more moderate stance, but please, watch this. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfPAjUvvnIc[/url] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] FLpump I buy bottled for conviences because I'm not a poor bum like you OP [/quote] You would certainly know I'm a poor bum. However I certainly know a stupid person would buy A BOTTLE OF WATER instead of TURNING ON THE TAP, AND PUTTING WHAT COMES OUT IN A DIFFERENT BOTTLE [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Bobby Hill Some water(Such as that near sludge ponds from coal mining) is not safe enough to drink even with a filter, so bottled water is good if you are in a situation like that.[/quote] That would be a clear exception. Yes. However, living off of bottled water isn't the way to go, you would then have to shower with bottled water as all sources are contaminated, and the best idea would be to bring out a lawyer. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] General Dripik OP you know there is Iron in tap water right? And you know that forms Kidney stones right? And you know people say Kidney stones are worse then childbirth....right?[/quote] I'm not sure you know what kidney stones are, but ANYWAYS- Please read the entire post. I think it was addressed in one of the replies at the bottom of my OP. And yes, yes, you fact boys can line up, just like at the supermarket and roll your tongue out and give me ALLLLLLLLL of those pesky evildoing elements, starting from "DID YOU KNOW THERE IS HYDROGEN HELIUM LITHIUM BERYLLIUM BORON CARBON NITROGEN OXYGEN FLORINE NEON SODIUM MAGNESIUM ALUMINUM SILICON PHOSPHORUS SULFUR CHLORINE ARGON POTASSIUM CALCIUM SCANDIUM TITANIUM VANADIUM CHROMIUM MANGANESE IRON COBALT NICKEL COPPER ZINC GALLIUM GERMANIUM ARSENIC AND SELENIUM OH GOD! BE CAREFUL OUT DERE MAH BOI!" [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Murcielago00 Tap water is regulated by the EPA which has stricter standards than the FDA, which regulates bottled water. So, I'll stick with tap water.[/quote] Thank you. However there are exceptions. Unless the water that comes out of your tap is [u]significantly[/u] harmful (paranoia does NOT count), the water CANNOT be filtered, OR bringing a water bottle is not an option and for simplicity's sake you just purchased one at the supermarket which is completely okay, YOU DO NOT NEED WATER PUT IN A BOTTLE. Issues with your water such as fracking contamination? Does your water explode when you look at it? Does it turn purple when you mix it with toothpaste? You're definitely an exception. Many of you people are clearly exceptions. Exempt yourselves, you all have the common sense to do so. Living on an earthquake fault line is clearly an exception. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] YouAreBlinking It's useful for when there's no running water. Dumbass.[/quote] Some of you clearly don't understand what the word exception means. Please google it. And yes, bottled water sure does taste better. So does lemon water, lemon juice, coconut water, starbucks drinks, soft drinks, sugar water, more lemon water, pumpkin water, melon water, sour water, green water, and purple water.

  • If you would like to drink from the river, go for it. Yes, the concept of bottled water seems stupid, but in the world we live in it's almost a necessity.

  • Faucet water is putrid... I don't even give that stuff to my dog...... [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dratron What confuses me most is that bottled water in stores has a sell by date on the cap, and then on the label it has something along the lines of filtered through mountains for 20 years.[/quote] Flowing water will never 'go bad', but when it sits, in this situation in a plastic bottle, it turns 'bad' after a period of time... well not really 'bad', just not as pure as it was prior to the date.

  • Tap water actually tastes nicer, IMO. I can understand why someone would buy bottled water, though. Say if it was a hot day, I'm dying of thirst with no access to a tap, I'll get a bottle.

  • It's a waste of precious resources. So many barrels of oil are wasted making bottled water that will probably end up in the ocean.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] JMAN07 It's a waste of money... best to just invest in a water filter and refill bottles.[/quote] That's precisely what I do. Most of the time I don't even filter it. I just pour tap water into a bottle. Bottled water is convenient if I'm somewhere where there's no water fountain or the only water source is a public bathroom sink or something..

  • It tastes nicer, and is usually high in mineral content that's good for the skin. Plus I can buy it when I'm out; if I go for a run down to the gym, I don't have to lug a bottle with me, I can just pop into the shop nearby and spend 50p on a bottle of water. I don't have it at home or anything, but if I'm thirsty and there's no tap around I'll always choose it over coke or coffee.

  • I only drink bottled water when I'm out doing something and I didn't bring anything to drink. Otherwise I just drink tap, and I'm pretty sure my mom fills up empty bottles with tap as well.

  • 1. Buy a filter. 2. Put it on sink faucet. 3. Viola, filtered tap water! Or if you have a fridge that has a little dispenser for water, put a filter in! It is much cheaper, and is probably cleaner, than bottled water.

  • I couple of years ago, I invested in a few BPA free bottles. I just refill these with the filter water from my fridge. I take these everywhere I go. When we do purchase bottled water, its typically when we go camping, go to a sporting event or concert (they let you take in one empty water bottle).

  • I pretty well always drink tap water. Though where I live and where I grew up has some very strict regulations regarding water purity. Much better than they have for bottled water. The best example I have of people being stupid over bottled water was when I was at the Pemberton Festival back in 2008. People were buying bottles of Whistler Water for about $5 a bottle. They could get the exact same water, for free, from a tap by walking an extra 20-30 m behind where it was being sold. All "Whistler Water" was was bottled tap water from a nearby town.
