Bottled Water - Where Does That Water Come From?
The economic value of "special water" was first cultivated in Europe during the late 1700s when people began visiting natural springs to drink the water or bathe in it. Then in 1767, Jackson's spa in Boston began bottling their water. picked by AutumnLotus 4 years ago

When firefighters get bored...
These firemen rig a contraption that lets them lift a car up in the air using water pressure from multiple hoses. I guess this is what they do when there arent any fires going on, where do I sign up? picked by WeeBeastie 3 years ago

 How Much Water Does Pasta Really Need?
How Much Water Does Pasta Really Need?
SOME time ago, as I emptied a big pot of pasta water into the sink and waited for the fog to lift from my glasses, a simple question occurred to me. Why boil so much more water than pasta actually absorbs, only to pour it down the drain? picked by Bornbad 2 years ago

 Another Bloody Water
Another Bloody Water
According to Jay Dillon, the director of Subgroup: "It tends to stand out on the shelves, by not standing out. Whilst all the other brands are fighting on the shelf with the same old cascasding water falls and water droplets etc. Our clear invisible bottle makes a focus of the water inside. Because after all it's just another bloody water, right!" picked by AutumnLotus 3 years ago

 Gullies Mark Most Recent Water Flow on Mars
Gullies Mark Most Recent Water Flow on Mars
Water is present on Mars today, but it is entirely bound up in ice because the surface is too cold for liquid water.

But evidence has been mounting that shows water once flowed across the Martian surface, potentially supporting life. While water does not mean there was life, it's a key prerequisite. picked by AutumnLotus 2 years ago

It has been proven that no firearm can penetrate 14 inches of water, not even the magnum .50 cal sniper rifle with steel-jacketed bullets, so this means that if you want to be safe from any bullet just stay under 14 inches of water in a river or lake. picked by maxriter 3 years ago

Martin Mustapha found a dead fly in a water dispenser bottle in 2001 and brought a $300,000 suit against the suppliers. At appeal, Mustapha, who never drank any of the water, didn't get the result he was after. Not by a long chalk. picked by pocksucket 3 years ago

 Water shortages in a world of plenty
Water shortages in a world of plenty
Subtitled 'Water shortages are a growing problem, but not for the reasons most people think', this article in The Economist of 11th April 2009, was an eye-opener. Not telling us how we have less water, but rather how we use (and abuse?) it. Very interesting statistics about water usage! picked by rambler 2 years ago
