I can hear it now.

PARENT: What in God's name were you thinking!!!!???

TEENAGER: I don't know.

Because whenever any parent of a teenager asks why the kid in question does something incredibly stupid, they can't actually explain why they did it.

It's not like people can't see whether or not they dumped 38 million gallons of water.

I saw this and couldn't help but wonder if animals aren't doing the same thing. Bird's don't poop when they fly over water?
What about the reservoirs that have been invaded by flocks of Canada geese?

If they didn't dump all the water, with everybody knowing that it had been slightly compromised, ambulance chasers on TV would be rounding up allegedly sick people to sue.
The Trial Lawyers Association has purchased a lot of political power.

Just came from the store. One Pur replacement filter is the same price as a three pack of Brita filters.
