Nope. I'm not going to do your thinking for you.

Just watch the video again. Note in particular the imagery and language used. Pay very close attention to the statistics with which you are presented. Think about the circumstances in which people buy bottled water, and what else they would be drinking if they weren't drinking bottled water. Ask yourself whether Perrier can be considered in any way equivalent to tapwater. Ask yourself why the presenter deemed it necessary to fly all the way to India to find out something which she could have researched at much less cost to the planet with a bit of googling.

Then turn off your computer, turn down the heating and go and have a look in your fridge.
And the award for the most condescending post of 2012 goes to......*drumroll*.......

I wish you would, instead of following me round like some kind of syphilitic puppy.

You're "drumrolling" a fellow poster? A fellow contributor? Seems pretty condescending to me.

Mate, you've been a condescending person since the day you joined EF. Don't crack on like it's something new for you.

Anyway, haven't you got some newbie to shut down? Or perhaps you might even like to contribute to the actual topic of the thread? Quite a departure for you, I know, but it's always fun to try something different...

I don't care about negative rep. But I always mention it. Weird.

Yes. Because rep is apparently important to you. And you are diverting this thread way off topic with your slightly embarrassing personal vendetta.

Now. Do you actually having anything of any value whatsoever to contribute to the discussion about tapwater, bottled water or the critical analysis of green propaganda? Or are you just looking for a scrap again?

Yes please - back to where it belongs. Where you chose to take it in the first place. Not enough people to insult there any more?
