if i get to go to as BAMA game, the only thing i'll buy from the concession stand is a drink in a souvenir cup. that's my 1 memento from a game (other than the experience, of course).

but holy hell at those prices in the op. i've paid less for meals at a ruby tuesday or logan's steakhouse.

On Netflix, check out Rotten - Season 2 Episode 3. It's a story on bottled water.

On average Americans drink 42 gallons of bottled water every year each, it's a $35 Billion business per year. Americans account for 1/8th of the bottled water consumption in the world.

which is why i drink water from the tap. i fill up my water bottle several times a day; and several people have told me i need to use bottled water. why do that and add to the plastic bottle problem when i can get the same water from a tap and keep using the same metal, insulated bottle every day?

The extremely rural area where I lived for the last 25 years is on a county water co-op. Worst water I've ever seen. We washed and cleaned with it but it was shit to drink. We either used bottled water or used our filter pitchers fro years. Now I am in the city. Water is better but I still only drink it from the refrigerator filter system

$250.00 or so: reverse osmosis system.

The biggest issue with it (aside from changing your filters which isn't hard, just a little more cash) is cutting a hole for the spicket in a stainless steel sink.

No more tap water here and there's a definite taste difference not only in drinking water but cooking as well.

I still buy bottled water...easier to grab one when you're about to head out in the car.

**There is a distinct difference in bottled waters in my view. Some of them come in the cheapest containers they can use...crinkly, loud bottles I can't stand.
