Is purified water bad for you?
People have been telling me it is since I started drinking water all the time and I also heard somthing on the news about some water having cancer causing things in it. Well if it is then what kind of water should I be drinking?

I wonder about this sometimes. I've heard that purified water lacks many minerals that you should and would get from tap water. It really does depend where your tap water is from though, some is far better than others and yes soem tap water can be down right dangerous.. so if you're not sure maybe just drink the purified. Personally I only drink tap(unless I'm out somewhere), it's cheap and the water is fine where I live(I think hehe).

Dayumnnnnnnn, water seems expensive in Canada, I get mine for free, of course, I steal it. :D If I were to pay for water it wont be no more than 75 cents for a gallon, which isnt really too bad, it will last me a day.

Whatchoo talkin' bout Taurus?
I think you got it all bass akwards Taurus, that orgasmic tap water sounds pretty damn good to me.

Personally, I like to drink my water pure, chalkablock full of minerals, straight from the river behind my house. I usually scoop it up in a glass and then add a teaspoon of Sea Monkeys (which I ordered from "As Seen On TV".
1 Sea Monkey = .00001 grams of protein *but hey! it adds up!*

Reality - My wife bought a water machine, and we only drink Culigan's distilled/purified water. It tastes nice, but it costs us about 8 dollars to fill one of those big tanks where I live in Canada.

note: the sea monkey part is still very true

extra note: no, not

Did someone say Samsquantch?
Sasquatch meat is the highest in protein that you'll ever come across. So if you ever come across a resturaunt that serves Sasquatch Sandwhiches, or if you ever have a Yeti in your sites, whilst hunting, I highly recommend ordering.shooting one.

1 full grown male Sasquatch = 100,000 grams of protein.

note: Sasquatches do not mix well in blenders

Extra note: I need to get more sleep.

Oh contrare my Samsquantch friend, I understand you struggle with your thing every night. :D

p.s. - thanks for the compliment, I do look pretty good for a guy who takes punches to the face willingly.

It was in reference to my boxing since I was 6 years old, but I suppose you could also through in that I got married to an Irish chick. So I'm willingly taking punches to the face in every facet of my life.

"The Forks" is the largest financial institution in Canada. I rent a kiosk there. Clearly I have bragging rights. You'd be surprised how quickly the Ukrainians buy up my Sea Monkeys.

My wife is 5'4 and all of 115lbs and she does scare the living hell out of me. :D

I had really doubted that anybody would get the TPB reference, and it put a big smile on my canuck face to see that you did. I should have guessed a Canadian boy would catch it. You have to watch a lot of TPB to catch the "samsquantch" reference though.

1. did you know that Sarah is Lahey's daughter in real life? (seriously)

2. Lahey was drinking nothing but bottled water! (again, meeitng my thread requirement)

note: I just got back from the Dominican Republic a few weeks ago, and if you ever go there DO NOT DRINK THE TAP WATER. They offer bottled water at most resorts, but we found that some of our bottled water had been re-bottled!

Dr X 04-22-2005 02:42 PM

Getting back to the original question. I haven't drank out of a tap in over 10 years. It's always bottled water. If your worried about minerals take a supplement. :D
