Who Knew Bottled Water Was So Dangerous?

The storm passed without mishap. I turned the weather radio off when the newscaster/robovoice guy began to sound bored. Lots of sticks and some small branches down in the yard, but it's still windy so I'll wait before going on patrol. Everyone's house seems to be where it was yesterday.

I saw a commercial for Snapple's new Anti-Oxidant Water. Normal cute guy drinks some magic water and the world is sudenly covered in bubble wrap so no matter what he does, he can't get hurt. He takes an elevator to the top of some high rise just so he can cannonball off the roof.

And, as he's heading for the edge, words pop up on the screen saying "Do Not Attempt". You know, because some idiot out there will drink this stuff and jump off a building, and his widow/ mother/ girlfriend will sue Snapple because, well, the guy on TV did it.
