exactly. people have been drinking straight from the tap for many years and nobody has died from it.
well, i guess i should have said it's not unheard of but it's uncommon. in the link LenMiyata just posted i noticed this "Bottled water is not necessarily any safer than tap water. Often, it is nothing more than tap water that may or may not have been filtered."

This's a very interesting topic ,lol ,well for me i'd go for tap water without problems ,lacks of those minerals in bottles water can be substituted by hundred ways ,and i'm not going for bottled water because it'll be bothersome to add another thing on the list of my needs in my daily life!

In here in the Philippines it costs PhP12 for a bottled water by PhP9 for Coke of the same weight (mL) (too lazy to convert to dollars and you might be surprised about the conversion). I'm just saying that in here, it is a rip-off if you buy a bottled water instead of Coke. You might as well buy 5 gallons of water (which is as much as 1.5L of Coke) and have water jugs.

If people are dumb enough to pay that much water for something they are already paying for (and will cost them less) then by all means they can keep doing. They are making someone rich. Not me but someone.
I Usally Buy Bottled Water...Cause I Think It Tastes Better Than Tap Water... I Can Drink At Least 10-12 bottled Waters, Because I Play Sports And I Love Bottled Water
I don't buy bottled water but my mom thinks the tap water is making me sick...
but I made her change her mind (she still thinks this) so I just use the re-usuable bottle and fill it with tap water.
Sure bottled water tastes the best but tap water isn't that bad.
