    Silicon Valley elites are spending $60 for less than 3 gallons of dangerous, unfiltered water — and it's flying off the shelves


    Jan. 2, 2018, 9:39 PM 206,003

    People in San Francisco are spending up to $61 for untreated, unfiltered water - and it is so popular that stores are apparently having a hard time keeping it in stock.

    Other Silicon Valley insiders are gathering and storing untreated spring water, The New York Times reported.

    But food-safety experts say that consuming "raw" water can lead to infections such as cholera, hepatitis A, and E. coli.

    Silicon Valley is developing a "raw water" obsession.

    In San Francisco, "unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized spring water" from a company called Live Water is selling for up to $61 for a decorative 2.5-gallon jug - and it's flying off the shelves, The New York Times reported....

    It's probably because spring water -- of whatever quality -- goes through natural 'vortexing' motions which reduces the clumping of the water molecules, making the water more permeable through cell membranes, for much better hydration to the body. (Water transported through pipes doesn't benefit from any vortexing motions because no vortexes form in this way.)

    One can do the same thing by simply vigorously stirring a cupful of water with a spoon for about a minute. You'll notice that the resulting water is noticeably *thinner* in texture, 'sparklier' when held up to light, and is much more refreshing when drunk.

    Here are some relevant videos:

    Dude, I thought you *liked* this kind of stuff.... No?

    Oh, that's right, you're the one who stays in your cave most of the time, emerging occasionally only to berate others on this forum for perceived personal transgressions, and to try out a little social engineering as well.

    You should have a diploma in 'Ignoring Content' since you haven't addressed any of it here.

    For some reason the title of this thread made me think of this song:
    If we have no business with the construction of the future or with organizing it for all time, there can still be no doubt about the task confronting us at present: the ruthless criticism of the existing order, ruthless in that it will shrink neither from its own discoveries, nor from conflict with the powers that be.

    Given that not only myself but many others have addressed your "content" many times on this forum and you've shown yourself to be unable to listen I think the content can be safely disregarded.

    The barrier to entry is incredibly low for this dynamic -- if one vigorously stirs a cupful of water with a spoon, a vortex is created for that quantity of water. Do that for a minute and you'll have 'structured' water that you can then try for yourself.

    You can't complain about the process because the cost is *negligible* -- if you're not willing to experience this different type of water then you have no grounds to say anything about it.

    It's objectively not a different type of water chris. It's just water. Source me a peer reviewed scientific article that says that after you stir water vigorously for a minute and you have a different type of water.

    Structured water lawl. You know, it might just be better if they actually die.

    Yeah, it doesn't work that way -- this is d.i.y., since you haven't noticed.

    Also, water is a *crystal*, even in liquid form. It tends to clump up at the molecular scale, which is why vortexing water has a real physical change on the substance.

    did you know a great way to cure butt cancer is to insert a tsp of cayenne pepper into your rectum. I don't have to prove this, it's DIY.

    You wouldn't pass high school chemistry. There's a lot wrong with this but seeing as you aren't sourcing your claims with peer reviewed articles I won't bother sourcing mine. The burden of proof here lies on you.

    Congrats on your recovery.

    Sure, you don't *have* to acknowledge facts, but then you're just being abstentionist from this particular topic, as with all others here -- you simply use aggression-passivity instead of actually addressing the content.

    The burden of proof here can be satisfied by stirring a vortex into a cupful of water with a spoon for a minute.

    I went ahead and did the water experiment, and I have no idea what the hell you're talking about ckaihatsu.

    It tastes exactly the same. I tried a glass of normal water for comparison and I can't tell the difference. I forgot to check if it was more sparkly, so I'll do that tomorrow.

    Still, even were I to notice a difference, that's not enough, since there is supposed to be a theory underlying why it is different. And here I am with BIXX, that has to be demonstrated, peer review and all the rest.

    It's not about the taste, it's about the *texture*. Optionally one could fill a bottle with marbles or beads, add water, and then *shake* the bottle (30 secs - 1 minute) to do the same thing. Best, I've found, is using the 'Tornado in a Bottle' plastic toy coupler on a pair of 1.5L SmartWater bottles -- 4 times per batch. There's also the technique in the first video at post #4, and one could also buy prills to do the same thing, effort-free (~$20).

    Well, I brought it up because of the original topic ('raw water'), but I'm not trying to *tell* anyone what to do -- either you *want* to try this out, or you don't.

    Taste, texture, whatever. Couldn't tell any difference.

    Right. I got the impression that you countered BIXX's request for evidence with claiming that they should just do the experiment and see for themself, as if that would be enough evidence.

    I can't be arsed to go through the article right now, but I wonder how trustworthy this Rustum Roy guy is. He has co-authored an article with Deepak Chopra for fuck's sake. That at least signals poor judgement.
