Unorthodox freshwater acquisiton ideas I have (serious discussion)

People with way too much money, some looking to create the next silly trend and make more billions, others looking to spend on it.

That Juicero fiasco should have led to that idiot getting banned for life by VCs.

Too bad they didn't take it one step further and analyze some different samples of this "raw water" to see what is in it.


My favorite part...
"Francl, the chemist, said ozone gas is used to remove bacteria and other things from water and then the ozonized contaminants are strained out, leaving clean water. She also said ozone does not change the molecular structure of water, as Live Water claims; if it did, the liquid would no longer be considered water."

that's because it is impossible for a suction pump to lift water beyond about 33 ft, since the atmospheric pressure at sea level can't support a water column that is more than 33 ft tall.  Upping the pump's voltage to 120 V, 1200 V, or more won't fix this.

I take it the "raw water" morons have never been backpacking. A few days of Giardia might change their minds.

First it was fluoride in the water, then it was vaccines, then it was cooking, now it's water treatment. I wonder what part of modern life the crackpots will wanna reject next. Electricity? Fire?

Disruption for its own sake has been attractive in our political-economics for a long time, for a certain type with too much money and hubris.

Taking advantage of the (IMO very valid) belief that the whole mess is rigged against the welfare of most people

making ever greater fortunes for the scammers

and at the same time distracting and redirecting that anger and energy toward outlets that won't effect any real change.

I'm old enough to remember how the phrase "one of the first ones to be put up against the wall and shot" ends

and it wasn't just an ironic meme.
