Normally the panic-buying and shop emptying/hysteria over lack of bottled water all happens in the immediate run-up to a disaster. Then everyone gets rekt after the disaster.

So I really dont see the reason not to bottle as much of your own tap water leading up to a hurricane/flood. Just why wouldnt you?
If you have a filter that works as the water comes out of the tap true. But I dont, and the water that comes from my tap unfiltered tastes like crap so I run it through a brita pitcher a few times which is slow so I probably would be buying bottled water if I was in the same situation the people in Florida are in as well.

the water here is so drinkable that you could piss into any lake and even your piss would become drinkable in mid-air

Pretty sure piss is drinkable as it is.

Possible that the hurricanes were caused by the nuclear bomb testing?
That'd be fucked up - not an atomic winter but radioactive wind.

nah I was quite shocked as a kid when I found out that drinking water wasn´t ordinary in every country, it should be

Is it still free? Few summers ago there was some promotion or something, you could drink it freely as much you wanted. Many tourists (myself included) filled their own empty bottles. No need to spend 80 eurocents on a 500 ml bottle.

Yeah, that was the best water I've ever tasted. Can't remember name of the company which had that promotion, would gladly pay for their product but I doubt it would be as good because bottled water stays in the store for some time while those spots were connected to wells directly, it was like you drink it directly from the source.

no, it´s not free anymore, once you dare to refill your bottle at the next lake, stream or fountain you´ll either be fined with a fee of 1200 Pesos or instantly shot on spot, the drinkwater stasi is always watching

Nah, it´s free, it would be an outrage if it was otherwise. Funny to hear that they even promote that

Can't really blame Floridians for not drinking their own tap water, that shit is seriously poisonous. I went to FL on business a few months ago and was stuck at my hotel with a broken vending machine... nearly died of thirst as the tap was such ass. Didn't think the same misfortune could possible happen twice in one trip, so during my second night at a different hotel (pretty far away from the first, so you'd assume the tap would taste at least a little different) I ran into the same issue... broken vending machine and toiletbowl-tasting water. I think it was most definitely some sort of government conspiracy to make me gay, but jokes on them, I've played crpg.

"Increased levels of prenatal fluoride exposure MAY be associated with lower cognitive function in children, a new study says." May, tbf, but still lol. THEY'RE PUTTING CHEMICALS IN THE WATER THAT ARE MAKING BABIES RETARDED.

Wait, what the fuck? That's the most Orwellian thing I've read about the US. They're seriously putting in completely unrelated chemicals into the drinking water, stuff that has nothing to do with the function of water, because "they know best"? And the best part is that they haven't even studied the effects of fluorine before doing it. "Let's secretly give Americans a nice little dental health boost in their water, whether they want it or not!"

Quote
Because the study evaluated samples that had been collected for other studies, researchers weren't able to determine specific levels of fluoride exposure.
"That's a big unknown. We don't have the whole picture," said Dr. Angeles Martinez-Mier of the Indiana University School of Dentistry, another researcher involved with the study.
However, despite these limitations, this is one of the most rigorous studies to look at fluoride and neurodevelopment, Hu said. It is the largest and longest study to evaluate fluoride exposure and its impact on the developing brain.
A crappy study is the "most rigorous, largest, and longest" study to evaluate fluorine, yet they've had it for 75 years. Nice. What the fuck. Wonder what else they'd feel comfortable putting in the water for the "greater good of The People." If they're good with putting neurotoxins in water to slightly increase dental health, maybe their next step will be something snazzy that decreases aggression. Or something that makes people want to work more...
