DRINKING NASTY SWAMP WATER (to save the world)

    Summary: I used some powder that has a flocculant in it to make swampy water drinkable. This can be used in situations where people don't have access to drinking water. Then I met up with Bill Gates and we talked about why we should help poor countries.

    Places that are underdeveloped or "poor" are that way because of centuries of colonialism. They're not naturally underdeveloped. Western imperialist countries should pay reparations to all countries targeted by colonialism and neo-colonialism.

    Since when does adding chlorine to water make it safe to drink? o.0

      THE TITANIC X Day ago

      yes because there is pee, and other human excrements in the pool. Plus they don't have those other chemical compounds that round up the dirts and particles inside the pool since they don't use those water cleaning packets, and another fact is that, a dirty body of water is different from a pool water.

    • 0MindSwept0

  • Fhiena Browning
    Fhiena Browning Day ago

    Uhh well, i don't care whether the water becomes separated with the dirt and the powder kills bacteria. it's still from that...dirt, i won't drink even jist a sip. Just, no way😱

      THE TITANIC X 5 hours ago

      @Fhiena Browning search up, "where do tap waters come from". They all originate from places that touches dirt. They don't come from places that are 'dirt free'. If you believe the water that you drink is clean and has never touched dirt, sorry buddy but water has touched pretty much everything you can imagine, since it first arrived when the Earth had formed. All the water from your tap, mine and everywhere has been billions of years old.
      I also agree with boiling the water first. But that only rids off the bacteria in the water, which the packet has already done and that most tap water barely have any bacteria in there, but won't get rid of the dirt.
      I see you also understand that people treat the water before it is sold for consumption. And that is exactly what that packet is doing in the video. It is treating and cleaning the water. Just like many water treatments, who treat and clean the water from the fresh body of water. Both have dirt, bacteria, and other man-made products. Both are clean after treatment, but one source is dirty and the other is a bit clean.

    • Fhiena Browning

      +THE TITANIC X THE TITANIC X well, at least you gotta boiled it. My family did hat before drink water from the pipe or whatever it called. Even water in a bottle people sell, they do something to the water before sell it. I don't know about drain in ur country. But the drain water with dirt i see mostly see, got some human dirt in it. So normally, i wouldn't want to drink sth like that. Even some country got this public tap water that we can freely drink. But not all country has that kinda thing. In US, Singapore, and other countries that has a public tap water to drink.. I believe it's clean. But not all country like that, mate.

      THE TITANIC X Day ago

      thats fine. When the world runs out of fresh water, this would only be the most logical option to take.
      Not only that, but the fresh water bodies of lakes like the great lakes in the USA, are lakes. Which means these water touches dirt everywhere. The tap water you and me have, are drained from fresh lakes, river, and even from underground. And they all touch dirt. So... shouldn't you stop drinking water then? :)
