Bottled Water Is The Biggest Waste Of Money Ever

 

 

 

How did bottled water get so popular? It is ridiculous, unless you have a well, the water out of your sink is as dangerous as the water in the bottle. Neither are any healthier than one another (unless you consider the fact that tap water has fluoride for your teeth) so what is the only reason bottled water exist?

 

TASTE! Yes, some water is absolutely terrible, such as Geneseo tap water, but some water is EVEN WORSE, like Dasani and Aquafina. How do they even sell a single bottle of those terrible concoctions? They're atrocious and disgusting. People are dumb enough to think that some how bottled water is good for you and healthier, but I'm going to let you in on a little secret...here's the source of your spring water:

 

 

 

Yeah, it comes out of a tap. It comes right from the exact source your tap water comes from: some stinking pipe under ground into a factory that shoots practically free liquid into a plastic bottle. Springs, being nothing more than the water table intersecting with the surface, are nothing terribly special. A spring isn't some sort of magical fountain with angels flying around it granting the water magical powers. It is just plain old water. However, people buy it, even though they don't seem to be disgusted from the tap water in ice tea, beer, soda, and in cups of water in restaurants. Whoever came up with the idea to mass market such a free resource is a genius. I mean, that's almost as close as the guy at the nursrey that sells dirt or the businessman that sells ice to Eskimos.

 

Selling tap water (turn on your faucet, you got it) is like selling air to the people. It is like that episode of Captain Planet, when the evil guys who for some reason want to make pollution take over the world (the Bush Administration?) sold rain forest air to cities...will we get to that point? I sinecerely hope not, but you know 80s cartoons, they are always right.

 

I can only wonder what can be repackaged to the people and sold for more. Left handed baseball bats? Geyser water? Sunlight? The possibilities are endless.

 

 

 

Runners up for "Biggest Waste of Money Ever":

 

Social Security and Medicare

 

 

 

Hmm, give the government money, they give you less back...what an awesome idea!

 

 

 

Global Warming Research

 

Okay, I'm going to settle it once and for all. All of these guys with PHDs can now save their time and work on more important research. Does CO2 increase world wide temperature?

 

 

 

World Temperature (from NASA sattellite, read more here: http://www.ghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/MSU/msusci.html)

 

World CO2

 

 

No.

 

 

Diamonds

 

A relatively UNSCARCE resource, but debeers jacks up the price.

 

 

 

The War On Iraq

 

 

 

Didn't accomplish anything, pissed people off, and costed a lot of money.

 

 

 

Derek Jeter

 

 

 

18.9 million dolalrs a year for the worst defensive shortstop in the majors and only a .850 ops? You got to be kidding me.

 

 

 

High Definition TV

 

 

 

Hmm, many just burn out and the image on a normal TV looks "real" and the image on a HDTV looks "real" but people have zits and stuff. Big whoop. I have 20/15 vision, I don't see this incredible difference that makes me ejaculate in my pants. I have watched HD programming, and all they do is show glass blowing in a slow methodical manner. If you did the same on normal TV, there would be no difference.

 

 

 

Honorable mentions: 2002 Mets, Roger Clemens (on the Yankees), Vietnam War, 10 billion Nuclear missiles, tax cuts, giving money to Palestine, prescription drug care coverage, massive stereosystems, and shoes.

when i have to get bottled water, i just get a bottel and carry it around until i find a water fountain

 

someone said its not healthy but im like paying 3.50 for water isn't healthy either

lol! That's true. If all the money invested in bottled water went to other things, we would all be healthier.

I laugh at people retarted enough to whine about bottled water.

 

Jeez, if you don't like the price, don't buy it. It's that simple.

 

But for people who live in areas where drinking water can be dangerous because the water sucks, they need the bottled water to have save drinking water.

 

I'm sure people who have got cancer from bad drinking water wish they had "wasted" their money.

It is not a matter of price. It is that drinking water is just tap water. I just think people who pay for it must be stupid. If your well is next to a toxic waste dump, I think you have a good excuse.

A growing number of cities have water getting dirtier and dirtier.

 

 

But using a Pur or Brita water filter is 1000X more cost efficent.

 

 

 

Again we see SorianoFan rambling on about crap.

 

 

And its not costed...its cost.

Hmm, the illiterate seem not to know what "bottle water", the water you BUY IN A BOTTLE is.

because where do you think the water you drink in a restaurant or the soda you drink the restaurant comes from? the tap! You really only need to filter the water unless you have old pipes.

 

Obviously, the dangers of water are overally exaggerated, because we drink tap water all the time in the shape of fountain drinks and so on. Dependence on bottled water in thus stupid.

 

So I "kno" this: if you cannot understand the above, I cannot help you.

 

On an unrelated note, the best water I ever had was from this well in the middle of the forest near a stream. I don't care what was in that water, but it was a cool 40 degrees and it was good.

Actually, there's an episode of Penn and Teller's bulls*** that is very similar to this and goes into some pretty good detail on the subject. And it also makes some people look stupid in the process (P and T go to a fancy resteraunt and put hose water in a bunch of different bottled waters with fancy names the customers can "taste" the difference).

 

This thread is very similar to that show, actually...

I would rather drink bottled water than soda.....so it's convenient to bring a bottle along. Now I agree Dasani and others charge a premium penny and that is ridiculous. There is probably more cost associated with the packaging and distribution, than the actual contents of the bottle anyway.
