To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine. And those who don't.

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo ofEscherichia coli, (E. Coli) - bacteria found in faeces.

In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poo. However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember: Water = Poo Wine = Health.

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing this as a public service.

Our municipal water is some of the best filtered in the land.

However, any excuse to drink beer is a good one.

And THIS is why I spent forever trying to convince people to drink distilled water. It's delicious and poo-free.

I should like to point out that no one is drinking poo. It's a bacterium, okay, okay a whole bunch of them, but let's put it this way - if you ate a monkey, you didn't eat the whole banana tree it was sitting in.

You people are making me cry.

NOOOOOOOO.

FALSE LOGIC IS GOD.

WE ARE DRINKING STRAIGHT POO.

Just like when you eat fruit snacks, you are eating tires (they both contain some of the same kinds of rubber!) DUH. Straight tires.

We're drinking water that has had poo in it.

We only drink water from the big water cooler thingies because there's LOTS of poo in the water down here.

In support of the wine option, one of my favorite quotes (I forget by who, but a writer) is: I feel sorry for people who don't drink wine. When they wake up in the morning, that's the best they're going to feel all day.

I heard that in a movie, this drunk was saying it to this tea-totaler. Can't recall what movie though.

Do you live downhill from a sewage treatment plant or something? What on earth does your water "taste" like?

Like little droplets of heaven flowing down from Mt. Olympus...like sweet, sweet nectar flowing from a land rife with milk and honey...like the smell of a baby's feet after a warm bath and lotion.

Also, one of the rumors about why people put limes in Corona has to do with the water used.

Well, living here I'm told people use limes to clean whatever nastiness is on the bottle. A lot of Mexicans wipe the bottle with a lime, then with a napkin, THEN squeeze lime in the beer. And they put several limes and salt, so really you barely taste the beer. I'm more of a Victoria girl myself.

A radio announcement I once heard: "Because of the flooding, people are advised to boil their water, as there may be harmful orgasms in it."

I don't know about wine making, but in beer you BOIL the water. Thus sanitizing it. (which is why it's ok to drink Mexican beer but not the water. And Melanie already explained the lime thing)

I never heard of the distilled water thing. Most breweries are located near a water source and simply use that.

That's basically what distilled water is. Water that's been boiled, the steam collected so the impurites are left behind, and then reclaimed.

No. It isn't.

Distilling is taking the steam and cooling it back into water.

Boiling simply keeps the water in the pot.

Not sure why you're getting argumentative about it. Sheesh. We're talking two different processes.

Yes, to make distilled water you boil it, take the steam, cool it, and VOILA! distilled water.

But to make beer you boil the wort. You don't then take the steam and make beer with it. Unless it's Anchor Steam beer, although I'm not sure exactly where the steam part comes in.

Boiled water and distilled water are still two different things.
