When we moved here gf kept getting stomach pains. She noticed that they disappeared when she went back to uk and when she visited France so she suspected it was the water. She started buying bottled water and they cleared up but it really sticks in the craw buying something every day that comes out of the tap for free, plus all that plastic... so we bought a filter and it is much cheaper etc and the pains didn't come back or anything. I still drink tap water all the time though, seems fine to me.

In that film "the big short", the epilogue states that Dr Michael Burry, the weirdo investor who first predicted the 2008 crash and bet on it, winning millions and millions, now spends all his time investing in one thing, water.

He's quite funny in the film, played by Christian Bale and depicted as a sort of idiot savant, wears Bermuda shorts and no shoes in the office, listens to thrash punk and carries a pair of drumsticks around.



Also what about this classic. Those ears.

When we went away for my birthday we stayed at a town called... I forget the name, anyway, we went to the huge dam at Castelo de Bode which creates a huge reservoir that feeds Lisbon. Liza kept calling it her nemesis as she believes that there lies the source of all her problems.
Our friend went camping there in summer, apparently there are millonis of crayfish there that aren't supposed to be... an invasive species basically. At night if you turn a light on it attracts them and you can catch as many as you like and cook them. Sounds like fun.

lisa's nemesis is a reservoir? or a big dam?

shouldn't you have gallantly promised to dynamite the dam or drain the reservoir?

Oxygen, one of the constituent elements of water, tastes like ginger beer, according to J.B.S Haldane, but only at pressures of 18 atmospheres and above.

The organic volatiles that give spearmint and caraway their flavour are mirror images of the same molecule, yet have markedly different tastes.
