Aren't Native Americans famously unable to grow body hair? I'm wondering if you have some interesting ancestry.My doctor always asks me if I had alopecia since my body is basically hairless.
I'm American, and I have wonky teeth, but I also have English ancestors. (And I drink tap water because I'm too cheap to pay for water that's more expensive than gasoline.)I heard some American podcaster speculating (in a playful way) that UK tapwater probably isn't fluoridated, which would explain our wonky teeth.
Your hair moves on its own?These days it's long, 'cos Techy likes it, and I wear head-tubes and clips to stop it moving around.
You can, and i have in the past, get fresh water from animal troughs that are mains fed with a stopcock. Like this one.I am overwhelmingly astonished on a daily basis by the number of customers who buy bottled water in our shop. Not Perrier level, just the cheap Co Op's own still water which is, I always assume, just water bottled from a giant tap somewhere; hardly hand-filtered through lovingly selected purest minerals. Why? This is Yorkshire, the water is hard but perfectly drinkable. It can, after an extended period of rain, taste a bit chlorinated, but mostly it tastes of nothing. Yet there are people in every day buying eight pack bottles of 2 litres of water. Apart from the blokes living in a caravan with no accessible water other than a horse trough, why would anyone waste money on water that is going to be pretty much identical to the stuff that comes out of the tap, only with added leached plastic goodies?
Well technically it's not really a scam since nobody is forced to buy it, there are plenty of other choices and presumably people choose to buy it over other bottled waters. Why anyone would buy bottled water in a country where the tap water is completely safe boggles me.It is, yes.
Yup, it is a scam because it's marketed as having special qualities over tap water.Well technically it's not really a scam since nobody is forced to buy it, there are plenty of other choices and presumably people choose to buy it over other bottled waters. Why anyone would buy bottled water in a country where the tap water is completely safe boggles me.
In the U.S. Coca-Cola puts out a popular water brand called Dasani which actually comes from the public water system of Hamburg, Pennsylvania.
I seem to remember it was less healthy after Coke had got their hands on it than when it came out of the tapAh yes! Dasani! They tried it in the UK too. Has it sneaked back I wonder?

Which leads to the joke about an Englishman never saying goodbye, just leaving, while the Russians make long, often lachrymose farewells, and plenty of them. And never bloody leave!Another new one. Tonight a Russian told me - thinking I was familiar with it - the "saying" 'to leave in the English way', which is apparently doing a moonlit flit ..leaving somewhere , be it a party or an apartment, without saying goodbye. He thought it was a universal saying.
You live and learn.
This absolutely matches my experience.For what it's worth he insisted the Russians never smile.
