If you weren’t aware, an adult body is made up of about 60% water. We are told to drink about eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day (sometimes more) to replenish our bodies so we do not dehydrate, especially in hot weather or after heavy activity. One estimate is that we drink 200 billion bottles of water globally per year.
Water also makes up about 70% of the Earth’s surface. Ironically, this makes the majority of the planet inhospitable for us, but it serves other purposes that we are reliant on – such as rain. I’m not going to go through the whole process as to how that happens, so you’ll just have to trust me.
The bottom line is we need water. And we need it clean. But, this is not a post about the Trump administrations efforts to kill us through ignoring climate change. This post is about an asshole named Peter Popoff who actively sells “miracle water” that, after imbibing, can heal you, send you money, get you a job and find you a love match – so this douchebag claims.
I’m torn on who to blame for this. On one hand, I think that Popoff should be flogged. Maybe, even have his nuts removed for being such a low-life scumbag who preys on the weak-minded. On the other hand, I want to slap the shit out of the people who try this stuff and actually believe it works. It’s fucking water.
These people, Popoff and his idiot followers, are allowed to vote. They are allowed to hold jobs, maybe even teach your children. They can’t be trusted to take their own lives seriously, so how can they be trusted to be out in the world and affect others?
Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking. Everyone has a right to be a moron and I shouldn’t be an elitist. Well, fuck that. If you are being stupid, I have just as much of a right to let you know as you are to be so.
Don’t be a moron.
