Love It, Hate It: Drinking Fountains

You know what I love?
Drinking fountains.

You know what I hate?
Drinking fountains.

The way I see it, there are two types of drinking fountains. There are those that are warm and unsatisfying, and then there are those that are ice cold but taste like iron.

It is so insanely difficult to find that perfect fountain that is both cold and tastes at least somewhat like regular water. I'm sure all of you know what I'm talking about.

It must be something about the materials that go into making a fountain. Obviously they are connected to pipelines just like regular sinks would be, right? So it's not the pipes themselves, because sink water is normally reliable (even if most people do prefer to run it through some sort of filter.) With that fact in mind, it must be something about the fountain itself that destroys the potentially awesome H20.

Potentially awesome H20
(which also ended up being terrible)

A quick Google search to try to find the materials used in making a drinking fountain produces no helpful results. This can only mean one thing: The companies that manufacture these fountains are HIDING SOMETHING. Are they purposely making these fountains produce terrible water in hopes that we will purchase water from other places? Do companies that make drinking fountains own stock in bottled water companies?

That must be it. They must not want us to have free and delicious water. It's one or the other, people.

If you don't hear from me any more after this post, it means I've obviously begun unraveling a gigantic cover-up here, and they have probably already killed me.


But if they don't kill me, I would really appreciate suggestions for Free Topic Friday.
