The bottled water craze as gone too far. Every one and their mother has made some types of “bottle water is stupid” comment from time to time. Lewis Black’s is outstanding. Jim Gaffigan’s is also decent. And of course, Penn and Teller completely thrashed the entire concept in their episode of “Bullshit!” on the subject. I don’t need to say anything similar to what they’ve already said.
But a colleague and I were walking back to our hotel from dinner, and we stopped into a gas station to grab some snacks for tomorrow. As my associate went to grab a bottle of water, I was astounded by what decisions lay before him.
Of this entire section of cooler, 85 of 90 different types are non-flavored water.
My associate said “All these choices, I think I’m going to try something different.”
Something different? That’s 85 different brands. This isn’t Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Cherry Coke Vanilla Coke, etc, etc. All of which have different flavors. It isn’t Coke vs Pepsi or RC Cola, which are all colas but taste different and have different formulas.
Every single one of these 85 brands of water have the exact same formula: H2O. Which bottle shape is the most convenient for you?
