Y'all could come up to Canada. Our water ain't tainted with all these fangled chemicals. Hell, just ask the folks in Walkerton, Ontario...

I think even the government admits that there are a few hundred "extra deaths" due to cancers related to byproducts of water sterilization. They recently tightened the standards on the concentraton of THM's that is acceptable, but as is the way with such things, there is no way to make anything 100% "safe". The best they can do is try to make sure it saves a lot more people than it kills.

"I wonder, if a lifetime of drinking tap water can cause bladder cancer, how come I've never met anyone who has had it?"

Uh, they tend to be in the graveyard ... it's not like heat rash that you get over in a little while, or anything.

"Has anyone?"

Yes, I met my father, and he had it right up until the day it killed him.

"If Ted is paying attention, I'm sure he knows far far more about this than I do, and can feel free to tell me I'm an idiot."

Ted weighed in on this the last time it came up - I can't remember what he said, but I don't think it would make either of us idiots. Ignorant (relatively), maybe.

"If you don't like the smell, though, that's reason enough for me."

Thank you. It's worse in some places. The Lake Michigan drinking water that I've had, for example, smells so strongly of chlorine, you'd think it came from a swimming pool. It's pretty nasty.

Back to the fountain; I really like it, but function has to come before form.

I remember a jockey going on and on
about how water sucked because it had
no alcohol in it. How it was a waste of
time and space...

TF: You are probably right about the fountain being too "new age." Oh well, just exercising my weak neurons. I am kind of an electronics dork, so I think it would still be cool to have a "new age" fountain, especially one that was somehow artistic, or integrated into your house or something. Perhaps with IR, or, better yet, ultra sonic sensors for your glass. Ones that work better than in airport bathrooms. I'm also a fan of low-tech, yet elegant designs (hence the siphon thing). BEAM robots, anyone?
