InfoWars-brand Fluoride Shield® is now 25% off! As co-developed with the esteemed Dr. Edward Group of Global Healing Center fame! I know, I know. No need to thank me (even though I likely just saved you a minor fortune). I'm just a humble servant of the people, etc. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:53, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Funny, but unlike you, I never fell for Alex Jones's obviously ridiculous fearmongering. One stop to infowars some ten plus years ago convinced me he was a crank selling shit. He just also says correct things sometimes to smear them in the public's eyes.
I only drink spring water. Spring water is the healthiest water you can drink. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

By spring water, I assume you don't mean bottled water, but actual "wild" spring water from what environmental science terms an "unprotected water source".
You claim that, quote:
"Spring water is the healthiest water you can drink."
Once again you oversimplify and overstate your position. TL;DR: It's not that simple, kiddo. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:53, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
"By spring water, I assume you don't mean bottled water, but actual "wild" spring water from what environmental science terms an "unprotected water source"."
No, there's bottled spring water that is bottled at the source. It is purified. Why did you just assume a bunch of shit?
"Spring water is the healthiest water you can drink. It's not that simple, kiddo"
You are truly not an intelligent arguer. Those links attack a strawman - a position I've never claimed to hold. I never said raw water or unpurified water. Do you think you're clever for attacking a position I never claimed? Because from my viewpoint, you just look really presumptuous and stupid.
But funnily enough, I knew you would comment on me saying that, and I was waiting for your moronic reply. You fell into an even stupider trap than the one I set though with this nonsense about raw water.
Spring water is healthier than reverse osmosis or distilled water. Just ask the WHO, I'm sure you trust them.
Now will you admit you were a presumptuous dick, here, or do you not even have the intellectual honesty to do that? (talk) 03:29, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Spring water may or may not be purified. Wouldn't the contents count as being a trade secret anyway?
Also why don't you ask WHO yourself? Just ask anybody anyone X, they support my X opinion. I'm just too lazy to do my own research, so just ask anybody who's smarter than me, they will back me up.—チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 03:43, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
"Spring water may or may not be purified. Wouldn't the contents count as being a trade secret anyway?"
Hm... I think you might be dumber than the Rev. I buy spring water that is purified and bottled at the source. I went to their website and looked at how they purify the water before I bought the product. So, yes spring water can be purified or not purified, but I buy purified spring water. Spring water is the healthiest water - obviously when it's not contaminated. I thought you could figure out that I meant non-contaminated water on your own.
"Also why don't you ask WHO yourself?"
Well, I have no obligation to prove anything to anyone, this is my talk page. The reason I said that is because I already know that the WHO says reverse osmosis and distilled water is worse for cooking and consuming than other forms of water. So you're "you're too lazy to look it up" comment makes no sense. (talk) 03:53, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
If you want pure water(as in 99.9%) you can just make the stuff. But be warned, it does not taste all that good. You have to add a little NaCl and Ca (1part/million)2d4chanfag (talk) 03:57, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Based on my research pure water is not good for you. Also, I'm pretty sure reverse osmosis and distilled water are effectively pure water. (talk) 03:59, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
right like spring water. 2d4chanfag (talk) 04:05, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
What? No. Spring water is not pure water. Distillation and reverse osmosis are intensive ways of purifying almost everything out of water. Spring water that is purified with different methods is not pure water. (talk) 04:18, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Demineralised water is highly aggressive and if untreated, its distribution through pipes and storage tanks would not be possible. The aggressive water attacks the water distribution piping and leaches metals and other materials from the pipes and associated plumbing materials.
Distilled water has poor taste characteristics.
Preliminary evidence was available that some substances present in water could have beneficial effects on human health as well as adverse effects. For example, experience with artificially fluoridated water showed a decrease in the incidence of tooth caries, and some epidemiological studies in the 1960’s reported lower morbidity and mortality from some cardiovascular diseases in areas with hard water.[1]
How about that shit? So you agree with WHO on distilled water being bad, but not on the fact they agree with health benefits of fluoridated water?—チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 04:13, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
You're an idiot. I think the WHO is full of shit and never said otherwise. I told Rev to ask the WHO because I know HE would trust them. The reason distilled water is bad is verifiable from many sources outside the WHO - though the WHO is correct in their mechanism of why it is bad. I also have never said fluoridated water would not help someone who has no tooth care, or said that fluoride doesn't help teeth - it does when applied topically, there's no reason to consume it. (talk) 04:18, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
distilled water is the olny way to go. You know whats in it and you can put anything that you like it. + we humans mead it. There is just no choice. Distilled water is master race water.2d4chanfag (talk) 05:34, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
From what I read, adding minerals or other things to distilled water doesn't work, and those minerals end up accumulating as kidney stones. Spring water is naturally hard water that once purified has all the benefits of added minerals or electrolytes without the kidney stone risk. (talk) 17:08, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Ah I see, in addition to believing water fluoridation is evil. from what you've read spring water is naturally hard therefore better. Christopher (talk) 17:23, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Another presumptuous moron appears - the others have all quickly left after their assumptions were proved wrong - let's look at your dumb post. Did I say naturally hard water is better because it's natural - no. Adding minerals to your water is not very effective because those minerals are not as bonded with the water. Your body ends up separating some of the minerals off and depositing them in your kidney. Naturally hard water is very stable and your body will have a harder time separating out those minerals. I'm not 100% sure this is true, but from the months I spent studying which water is actually healthiest, I saw enough evidence to convince me of this. Also, it's hard to totally trust the source of the minerals that you add to your water - and from I read it's hard to verify what you're actually being given. So even if those minerals are not deposited in your kidney, buying high quality minerals is expensive and hard to verify.
Now you could have politely asked me to elaborate, but you're much like the rest of the people here - not actually interested in being rational, you just want prove your superiority by laughing at people you think are dumber than you - an activity enjoyed by alt-right trolls, anti-fat people trolls, and liberal trolls, or more concisely, people with insecurity issues and small minds. (talk) 17:33, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Let's get the obvious one out of the way: "But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink! You often say "from what I've read" sources would be nice. Christopher (talk) 17:45, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
I had to do this: "But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink fluoridate water!チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 18:23, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Remember when you said "Spring water may or may not be purified. Wouldn't the contents count as being a trade secret anyway?"
And you were wrong - not only is that not a trade secret for any major bottling company, I know how the spring water I buy is purified. So you were totally wrong. Remember that? And then you just didn't reply. I remember. (talk) 18:36, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

You run every time you lose an argument. (talk) 20:52, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
I don't need to source claims on my talk page. If you disagree and care, look it up yourself. You came here to insult me, not discuss - so no, I'm not looking up sources for you. Also, you didn't address the fact that I never appealed to nature, and that you were just being a presumptuous cock. (talk) 17:52, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Hey 221, have you tried dehydrated water? Its really good. Also if you don't have a source for your claims then why do you say that you do?.2d4chanfag (talk) 18:04, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
What claim did I say I have a source for? I said I read certain things while researching what is the healthiest water. I'm not here on my talk page saying everything I post here is true and backed by sources. I said what I drink and what I read. I don't care to debate this subject, I have spent all the time I care to researching the subject. If you having something to add, great. If you don't, why are you acting like my talk page is an article page? If you want to prove I'm wrong - go ahead. You came here to my talk page. I don't owe you sources on anything. (talk) 18:16, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
Hmmmm... Form the way you are posting, sounds like you are unsure about your findings and just trying to reinforce the idea in your mind. I think you don't want to post the source because we will cut it apart. Also this is not your talk page, its the the talk page for the ip address you are using. So its free game. 2d4chanfag (talk) 18:45, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
I read tons of different websites, many that you would not trust whatsoever. There are so many claims about water, and though many seem like BS, many others that aren't currently backed by scientific findings may very well be valid. I base my answer to you on hundreds of websites, many of which I agree you would think were BS. I have no one source to give you, I made up my mind based on all the information I read. Yes, this page is free game, but I don't owe you sources on my statements. (talk) 20:52, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
(edit conflict) basically saying the same thing: We're not Conservapedia, "your" talk page isn't "yours" "If you want to prove I'm wrong, go ahead" the burden of proof still lies on you to prove spring water is meaningfully different to non spring water. "I didn't come here to debate" well then what did you come here to do? Christopher (talk) 18:49, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
I have already told you that spring water is superior to distilled or reverse osmosis water, just ask the WHO (who you all will likely believe since they're mainstream). So why are you asking me to prove something I already proved?
And I wasn't aware I had to debate my every opinion. This isn't an article page. I came here to argue about 9-11 (which you have all not joined in on the discussion about) not whether or not my decision on water is backed by sources. I don't care to prove that to you.
"the burden of proof still lies on you"
What? I'm not trying to prove anything here, so why would I have a burden of proof? Do you ever think before you type something? (talk) 20:52, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
