What the hell did i just read?
She doesn’t seem too smart
Isn’t cactus juice super poisonous though?
only if the cactus is poisonous
in some cases it’s merely psychedelic
in other cases it just tastes like cactus (generally a disagreeable taste)
At least it’ll quench ya. Nothing’s quenchier. It’s the quenchiest.
On second thought, I’d be entirely okay if all her rich celebrity friends got themselves poisoned as fuck.
If we’re talking poisonous cactus juice and dehydration, someone had to quote it.
But water is delicious though
How tf can you dislike the taste of water when it does not even taste??
I think water tastes awesome. Different waters can have a really different taste.
Also true. Water is magnific.
Actually if you tried distilled water, it tastes awful.
So taste of “waters” (which indeed can be excellent) is the taste of what in them is not water.
Correct. It’s mostly the dissolved minerals that give water its flavour. For tap water, the disinfection chemicals (namely chlorine) also contribute to the taste, with some people saying they associate it with being refreshing while other people claiming it to have an off taste (either way the tiny amount of chlorine is perfectly safe in case anyone is worried).
Why is there chlorine in your tap water? Definitely wouldnt drink that.
It’s a standard disinfection chemical that prevents bacteria from growing in the pipes? Pretty much all tap water have it. Bacteria in the drinking water is way worse than a miniscule amount of chlorine, just ask 18th century London.
It is my understanding that chlorine is only used temporarily, when there is a problem with bacteria in that region. I found the site below which seems to support this. In any case, wouldnt you be able to smell and taste chlorine?
I’m in Canada and chlorine is used regularly in our tap water.
I thought we don’t taste it because it’s such a small amount, while I obv still taste it in a public swimming pool.
I did read the same source, but you left some out… Also if I read the table correctly it states that most countries in Europe use chlorine for water treatment.
Worse, the tap water could have been fluoridated !

Yes water is fluoridated. No it’s not harming you.
Is that link supposed to convince me to drink chlorinated water? Afaik we dont even have that in Europe (just like we dont have chlorinated chicken).
AFAIK most European nations chlorinate their water. At least in Norway it’s forbidden to fluoride the water.
Drinking water is chlorinated in Europe I think. But I am also sure that we use way less of it!
I don’t want high levels of it, I want the best drinking water of course ;)
Of course european water is chlorinated, like any public distribution water in the world afaik.
