Water Please

Water treatment seems like it should be a pretty solidly-researched and standardized thing. Granted, for most of our history obtaining water has been completely different – natural sources (rivers, lakes, etc.), rain, wells.. modern plumbing is relatively new compared to all of that. Even looking at it like that, we've been doing this long enough that water should be – water.

If I can go to a major city and get good clean water out of a faucet, why, here, do I have to choke down water that either tastes overly metallic or reaks of chlorine? I guess most people don't really care, but I'd really like to have easier (faucet) access to water that doesn't taste like other things.

    i'll take good old tap water over bottled water any day. the way bottled water is "purified" just doesn't taste good at all to me, ick. water is definitely becoming a scarce resource. people are fighting over it more and more. now that's really scary stuff.

    Oh yeah, i remember that library water vividly. Maybe waters in libraries are not meant to be good. The waters get tainted by all the old books in the library. I like saying "the waters."

    It's not just the library.. the rest of the town seems to be pretty bad. The water at my home is drinkable, but it's still pretty "bleh".

    maybe the library is infecting the water in the area. THOSE LIBRARIES!
