In America, bottled water is monitored as a commercially consumed food, so it would be a federal gov't agency that does it - probably the Food and Drug Administration. This is why you get the FDA label saying "0% RDA" and "0 mg" for all the relevant entries on the side of the bottle.

Tap water is very likely monitored by the local government at the city or state level. These can range from much stricter to much laxer than FDA - and in any case they probably encounter a greater degree of variance from local events such as rainfall and reservoir spumes.

Short version, if you've got the money and your local tap water monitoring agency is a bit blasé, you might be justified in getting bottled water.

This was some months ago but I couldn't post it on a cell phone:

I woke up the other day with a very strong sense of longing and loss.

In my sleep I had dreamed up a girl. She was a very common girl, but I felt strongly attracted towards her (and vice versa, luckily) even though almost everything in the dream wanted to get in our way. Most of the dream was a struggle getting to her but I woke up before I could find her.

No clue what it was about, but I don't think I have ever experienced such a feeling because of a dream. Couldn't get my thoughts off her. Anyone know how to analyze dreams?

Hmmm sounds interesting Daedolon perh......*gets distracted by sig pic boobs*......errmm what was i saying? :roll:

Not sure about dream analysis but I recently had a dream where i had caught a terrorist who was trying to blow up a group of civilians. And in the dream i was really very angry at this bomber and spent the rest of the night basically beating the crap out of him and threatening to kill him.

After this dream i watched the Sci-Fi series Caprica which features very similar acts of terrorisem. What was odd though was that before the dream i didn't really like terrorists but i wasn't too vengeful against them, but after the dream my reaction to the depiction of bombings on the program was much stronger.

So it would seem that if you get a strong emotional reaction in Dream it leaks easily into reality, or perhaps the chemicles released have strong effects on the sleeping mind.

I perceive dreams to relay messages from the sub-conscious, acting as a communicator of potentially important information. This has been predominant wheir I've had a lingering thought in the expanse of my cerebral cortex, which transmutes into a livid and sometimes lucid dream in which I am capable of controlling my direction of voyage, but not necessarily having the means to alter the unfolding scenario.

Here's one lengthy yet concise article I discovered behind the intent of the Sandman's realm

I ate a raw clove of garlic. Not in one go as the taste would be too potent but in small nibbles. Intoxicating, a powerful flavour resulting in an effective grip on the chest cavity.

I see! It would apprea not only do you not mind spiders, you actually revere them! But tell me, do you feel any fear at all towards a bigger one? I know that as much as I respect them, Huntsmans still creept me out a bit if they're sitting in an akward spot such as an entry to a hallways or another room. I still like them though, as I know they will do no harm.

In the forest and city I usually search for them. This actually annoys people. I'm not affraid of them at all since I know these aren't aggresive and can't jump, etc. I even wrote a short dissertation about the many kinds of spiders in the country a few years ago. In a warm weather they run fast though and I don't like if somehow one starts running up my shirt's sleeve. I like to observe they daily life and how they make webs. Usually I make some pictures with my shitty camera too. Once when I was checking out those rare tiger-patterned spiders a nasty centipede bit my finger. Now that was horrible. So yeah, I always liked spiders very much.

I love spiders.

I don't suffer from arachnophobia so i don't have any real fear with regards to holding them or letting them crawl on me, no matter the size. Thing is though, even when the phobia is prominent among the majority of people, i can't quite understand what it is that people fear about them. I have asked several people, they say it's the legs combined with their agility that gives off the 'creepy' vibe, whereas others have said it's fear of their bites and possible severity of them, but i don't see it that way myself.

I give spiders names :3
