How exactly is this even legal and not fraud?

I thought that. "Relieves stress, cures unhappiness, brings back memories".

Medical evidence to support?

I'd be interested in an opinion from an actual scientist on the veracity of the claims. Paging @ChinaHand.

It's called "feelgood factor" - for the gullible. RS has probably bought a case of the stuff... :flowers:

There must be lots of other opportunities?

MHK in a bottle.

Rover's Return toilet air freshener.

Endless possibilities......

Geoff Corkish (and one or two others) in a bottle would be a better idea...with the cork firmly secured by a wire thingy like a Grolsch bottle's got.

The water across is medium I think.

It's very varied depending on the area and such as limestone deposits etc.

Isle of Man water was always excellent. Due to the Chlorine  in it these days, it's maybe a bit yeughh* for some. I was told by a former Chief Exec (Smithy) of Water Authority that it needs to be sat in the fridge to allow the chlorine to evaporate off. Others have told me that is the usual bullshit and I am inclined to agreed. (How to remove Chlorine from tap water).

It's a sorry state of affairs when people are buying bottles of drinking water.

1.Back in the day I never heard of people being ill from drinking tap water

2. Tap water is fine and clean to wash your car and that. And for having a shower

I have started boiling my tap water and letting it cool because sometimes there is a strong taste of chlorine.    Would not dream of buying bottled unless traveling through airport or abroad.

But that's the point sid. The hassle of boiling water so you can drink it. It used to be a case of drink it straight from the tap.

(ps does boiling it get rid of Chlorine? It certainly tastes very different after boiling and I doubt nicer)

Well I also let it lie for a while so it could be that but sometimes it is really strong.

Can't you buy an inline filter for your cold water if it's that bad?

It will taste sort-of flat because boiling it removes the dissolved water air.

Pour it from cup to cup a couple of times to aerate it.

Quality f-up!

I've bought some crap in my time, and been bought it too, as my three extendable back scratchers will testify. But even I will not be buying this, I'm sorry.

Nothing new under the sun, I well remember Deans gift shop on the corner of PE prom/Church road selling canned Manx air in the 1950's
