All hail Aquafina.
I didn't even know this type of mistake was possible. This is why I live by my Britta. From Wired magazine:
Does the tap water in your town tickle the tongue? Some residents in Cape Coral, Florida, got a sickening surprise after officials admitted an awful mistake had been made: Treated waste water -- instead of purified drinking water -- had been piped into four homes in the city. The waste water, which is used for irrigation, is filtered and chlorinated. But a county health official said the treatment would not kill parasites that can cause gastrointestinal problems such as vomiting and diarrhea. "Mistakes were
made," said City Manager Terry Stewart. "The best we can do is make it right." Pass the Evian.
Another story from Wired I found interesting. Apparently Muslims abide by the 'saying-something-three-times-makes-it-true" law:
Muslim men can divorce their wives using text messaging, a religious adviser to the Malaysian government has ruled. The New Straits Times said that Hamid Othman, who advises the prime minister on religious matters, said divorce by short messaging service is consistent with sharia law if it is clear and unambiguous. Islamic law permits a man to divorce his wife by declaring "I divorce you" three times. Nothing unclear about that.
