    I'm all for it if it stops the bottled water industry making people carry a half litre bottle around with them at all times. It's all tosh, I barely touch the stuff myself.
  6. If we left 100 scientists in the middle of the hotest desert with no water, what alternative would they ask for?
  7. How long before this one hits the Euro myth site?

    The ruling says that you are not allowed to claim that your bottled water is better at treating dehydration than anything else.

    Anything, bread is 33% water, a cucumber about 98%. So a cucumber sarnie would do just fine (crust optional).

    The Tuareg seem to have managed for centuries on very little water.

  12. My Gran told me only dirty people wash.
  13. As a lad I sailed with an old chap who drank little but Pernod. Sent below to pour him a glass mid-Channel, I made the mistake of asking if he'd like water in it. He spluttered and snorted before saying ''What? Are you mad? Have you seen what the ******* stuff does to kettles?''
