Throw away your Nalgene waterbottle! on 04/09/2008 09:14:32 MDT Print View

There was a thing on the news this morning and everyone needs to take a look at their nalgene water bottle.

look at the bottom of it and if it has a 3,6, or 7 in the triangle...throw it away! it has been realized that bottles with those numbers have been releasing chemicals into the water that can cause very bad brain damage!

If you do a little searching, you will find that we've discussed this topic many times before. Some feel it is worth the risk, others don't.

Are you trying to say washing your water bottles in hash is a good thing?

I've never tried that...

If you place a magnet in the bottom of your Nalgene, and then pour the contents into a plastic-coated aluminum Heineken can before drinking, you'll be fine! It also helps to stand on one foot and turn three counterclockwise circles while drinking.

Seriously though, you should probably throw away your Nalgene anyway, because they weigh a ton!!! The L in BPL stands for LIGHT you know!
