Everything taken too much is bad for you, too much water will wash away essential nutrients from your body, Oxygen is actually poisonous.

flouride is the problem, not really the tea.

I might use 7 teabags for a gallon of good stuff, and distilled water. :p

distilled water isn't good for consumption either since it lacks minerals that are found in good drinking water(not city/tap water). what happens with distilled water is that it will take minerals from away from your body rather than putting minerals in your body.

Teeth deformities? What do you mean? Fluoride is put into the water to prevent tooth decay. Water fluoridation is pretty closely monitored and maintained, at least where I am from. I haven't heard any of ill effects because of it.

*takes sip of fluoridated tap water*

I don't know about how often they test your municipal water for acceptable levels of anything foreign to water (fluoride, Chlorine(by-products of chlorine) and other toxic chemicals. In the U.S municipalities The FDA requires them to only have to test drinking water once a month. Thats why i stay away from consuming tap water. Bottled water companies have to test daily and their acceptable levels are significantly less than city water.

Once a month might be entirely sufficient. If you are already closely monitoring and regulating amounts testing more regularly might not be useful.

You're welcome to pay for bottled water, but frankly I think it is financially wasteful and environmentally harmful.

man, wait till you hear about dihydrogen monoxide, it's used in everything from industrial acid to biological weapons research. Thousands of people die from it every year, but virtually every company uses it as an ingredient in food products, and it's not even declared on the ingredients sheet! In fact, we're using so much of this stuff that there's a global shortage!!

Good thing most normal people never approach anywhere near that level.

Everything in excess is too bad for you. When I was in Afghanistan I saw a guy get hospitalized for drinking too much Water, it flushed all the nutrients out of his body, which is why I always had a can of Coke after every litre of water.

      Waymo will set up shop in Michigan to build self-driving vehicles
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Waymo announced today its plan to manufacture self-driving vehicles in Michigan after the state's authorities granted permission to set up shop in the region. The company has yet to pick a specific production facility in Southeast Michigan, but its selection of the state comes as no surprise given its important role in the country's auto industry.

      In a Medium post announcing its plan, Waymo said it will hire engineers, operations experts, and fleet coordinators over the next few years as part of efforts to expand its manufacturing presence in the area. The company added:

      It has already been testing its self-driving vehicles in the state since late 2017. The Alphabet-owned company will collaborate with auto industry supplier Magna to bake its self-driving software into different vehicles.

      Waymo's fleet of autonomous vehicles includes Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Jaguar Land Rover. Earlier last year, the company purchased 62,000 Pacifica minivans as part of an expanded partnership with the automobile maker. This was preceded by a long-term strategic deal signed between Waymo and Jaguar Land Rover a few months prior for the development of self-driving electric vehicles.

      Apple's Michigan Avenue store opens in Chicago
      by Paul Hill



      Apple has opened its latest store in Chicago. Apple Michigan Avenue, the company’s “newest and most ambitious store”, is situated along Chicago’s riverfront and acts as a connection between North Michigan Avenue, Pioneer Court, and the river. The store will aim to enliven the Riverwalk with year-round Today at Apple educational programming.

      Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail, said:

      One of the key features with the new store is that it reconnects Pioneer Court with the riverfront. It has granite staircases on both sides of the transparent store, opening up a view from the plaza to the river, and beyond, giving locals of the area easier access to the river from the plaza.

      If you’re in the area you can attend ‘The Chicago Series’ which builds on existing Today at Apple programming. Each program in the series is co-created with local non-profits and creative organizations and focuses on a theme or project designed to make a positive impact in the community.

      PLYMOUTH , Mich., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- A woman in Michigan discovered a box full of 19 puppies while out for a jog in a park.
      Julie Newman found the open urine-soaked box filled with 4-week old puppies underneath a tree approximately three feet away from the jogging path in Hines Park in the city of Plymouth at around 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, according to the Humane Society of Huron Valley.
       
      "I could hear little yelps," she said. "And then I saw a box that was moving."
       
      Newman, who owns two rescue dogs herself, called her sister to help her bring the puppies to the humane society.
       
      "I'm just heartbroken," Newman said. "I just don't understand how anyone could do this."
       
      The nine male and 10 female puppies, believed to be pit bull terrier mixed breed, received medical care upon arriving at the humane society and will be available for adoption once their treatment is completed.
       
      The Humane Society of Huron Valley is seeking information about the person who abandoned the puppies.
       
      "It's hard to say why someone would dump puppies in a park. But there is no good reason for such a careless act. This is exactly why animal shelters exist -- to provide safety and care to animals in need," HSHV CEO Tanya Hilgendorf said. "We don't ever want to see animals, especially babies, abandoned in the cold, left to fend for themselves. Thanks to a compassionate community member willing to take action, these innocent puppies will get the help they deserve. When they're ready, they'll be adopted into loving homes -- but first spayed or neutered to help ensure this doesn't happen again."

      Five bicyclists were killed and four injured Tuesday when a pickup truck seen driving erratically moments earlier plowed into them just north of Kalamazoo, Mich., police said.
       
      One neighbor who saw the truck after the accident told The Detroit Free Press that it "looked like it hit a brick wall."
       
      The driver tried to flee on foot, but was nabbed shortly after the 7 p.m. incident, said police. The horrific scene took place near a park in Cooper Township, and local prosecutor Jeffrey Getting said the bicyclists were pronounced dead at the scene.
       
      Neither the suspect nor the dead and injured were immediately identified. Authorities said the driver was a 50-year-old man from western Michigan, and that no children were hurt.
       
      Getting said police had received multiple calls warning were made about the pickup earlier Tuesday "over concerns" about erratic driving. He said authorities had been searching for the driver, but there was no active pursuit at the time of the accident.
