Every caulkhead (Isle of Wighter) has to know how to create a makeshift tube to stick dirty water up their bottoms in case of being stranded at sea.
But you ARE all stranded at sea.

Re: Drink water!

It's hailing.

Can I collect it, add some gin, and count it towards my daily water requirement?

It is almost as if he has sat on something which has (not unpleasently) surprised him.

I think it's a play on words. The French do like to medicate, how can I put this, using the dark side.

Re: Drink water!

If yáll dont mind going back on topic. Its possible some people are excused from the x liters/day requirement right? I know some people (me and one other girl) who just dont like to drink water. Or to drink anything maybe except coffee or green mango shake which i really miss. Reminding me doesnt help either. Not even when the water comes to me now that im expecting and its turned into a big deal.

Re: Drink water!

I've just eaten lunch - and it isn't that warm out today - I feel a little thirsty - but I don't know whether that is genuine thirst.

Should I drink some water?*




















*or beer?

Re: Drink water!

Beer is mostly water, so no need for water as well!

"“If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”

Ukip MEP Paul Nuttall said the ruling made the “bendy banana law” look “positively sane”.



He said: “I had to read this four or five times before I believed it. It is a perfect example of what Brussels does best. Spend three years, with 20 separate pieces of correspondence before summoning 21 professors to Parma where they decide with great solemnity that drinking water cannot be sold as a way to combat dehydration."

Great!

Tom

Re: Drink water!

Why does no one think it's stupid that the water makers feel they have to put "prevents dehydration" on the bottle?

As I heard it explained, if you're in the desert with only one bottle of water, it will not prevent dehydration. It may "combat it", but it does not prevent it.
