The topic of the night is why bottled water has an expiration date, or some such nonsense.

Does it really go bad?

High school chemistry kids, help us midlife-crisisers figure this out! We need you.

Chris, what age is midlife to you? In my culture, all women get married. I know zero adult Indian women who have completed their educations and aren't wed. When I was a teenager, I remember that we had a family friend who was getting married at 27, and we thought she was ancient...

I said midlife crisis in the last thread then corrected myself saying 1/4life crisis. XD But in my culture people get prego at 15 now these days....which is really bad to say the least. But I think getting married around 22 is not ancient. And Meenu you are not ancient.

Bottled water tastes awful even before the experation date!!!!! I can't stand the stuff. When we lived up North in the country and had well water it was great and I real miss it. I can't drink any bottled water and the tap water here in Texas is even worse. I have lived in Texas for 9 years now and have never drank the water here without something mixed in it.

How about a middle-school biology kid?

Apparently, bottled water comes straight from springs, and has no or very little chlorine added to it. The bacteria inside the natural water slowly grows and builds up in number until all nutrients in the water are used up, and then they start to die.

As you can imagine, dead bacteria tastes pretty nasty.

Where's Jaysee? Shouldn't he be here already?

Tell us tell us tell us tell us...

Whoops...double-ninja'd

Jaysee: That's weird...once when I was trying to start the gravel vacuum I got a big gulp of tank water, but it tasted like normal water. Okay, maybe a bit grossly warm.
