I’ve taken tests like this before. Very interesting to see where people end up.

Here’s the test:

I love bottled water.

Oh well, if you want to pay big bucks for something I and millions of others pay little or nothing for, it's your choice/money.

All the questions concerning sex are calibrated according to American puritanism that seems laughable to most people here in Europe, so you automatically collect many left/liberal points for something that sounds just common sense here (few people here would understand how what happens between consenting adults behind a closed door could possibly be a matter to somebody else, same goes for pre-marital sex, etc). All these questions have a strong medieval scent for people from my country.

Quoting ZombiesRus5, reply 165I love bottled water.

Wow, some of you are really humorous. 

So here's the deal, if you are really getting your water for free make sure you boil it for at-least 5 minutes. It won't taste as good due to the oxygen loss but it will be safer. I'm assuming you'll be using wood to boil too so as to make sure the whole process is free.

There's some other filtration or distilling processes you might try too though I'm sure some cost will be involved in setting these up.

All our drinking water is boiled... then filtered... then refrigerated. 

Not that I drink it straight myself.... well not any more. 

Not since ma told me fish f**k in it.

I guess you people who live in third world countries don't have clean tap water like we do

I saw a rather hilarious Penn and Teller episode (That's Bullsh!t was the name of the show) on bottled water.  They used a garden hose behind a fancy restaurant to serve 'bottled water' to the guests.  Nobody complained and the waiters would even get complements on the taste.

 

Coca Cola (and Pepsi for that matter) take the exact same water they use to make their soft drinks, and sell it in bottles.  For more money then the equivalent size of soft drink.

I get clean tap water, but the water board puts in additives [fluoride, etc] that make it taste like crap... thus it's boiled and filtered to make it taste like water from the purest spring.

I guess it's a personal thing. I grew up on flouride, and I don't much like the taste of water without it.

I guess it's a personal thing. I grew up on flouride, and I don't much like the taste of water without it.

It's not just the fluoride, though.  There are other additives that make the water taste awful, though worse in some areas than others.  My daughter lives about 15 minutes away and her tap water is far nicer than ours.  My sister lives 35 minutes away in the opposite direction and her water is positively foul straight from the tap... so much so I refuse to drink it. 

It depends on the storage facility for each area, I think, and how heavy handed they are with the chlorine, fluoride and other stuff added to keep us healthy.  Frankly, I'd rather take my chances and just have straight, clean water without the additives.
