And I use a Brita water filter, to get rid of the chemicals in the tap water. :)
PS: As soon as I saw someone picking seperator, the first thought that popped into my head was WHITEFLAGS! :D
Brita filters are awesome http://www.vvork.com/wp-content/uplo...b_vader_sm.gif
matsp I always knew you were a classy man... but tropical aquarium fish, you outdid yourself!
It only let me select wine once =/
I like to drink barleywine while programming. It puts a healthy limit on the amount of time I spend writing code, because after a while I can no longer see the keys properly.
(Of course, I don't drink beer while coding at work.)
Coke and fruit juice most the time. At home I stay away from caffeine by consuming copious amounts of ginger ale. I'm convinced that the growth of beverage-related industries is directly proportional to the growth of software companies. :)

Ahh? Get a hip flask for Christmas?
haha let's see if I will be able to do that by the time I finish my engineering degree.Quote:
I usually choke down the last cup of the day right before bed
It seems more people drink coke than water. :p
I've been trying to find separator, but no one seems to sell the drink :(
On the other hand, there appears to be a number of recipes online for a cocktail named separator.
Speaking of filtered water, some people stick a magnet to the side or bottom of their water jug.
The theory is that the magnet pulls the metals(copper, lead, zinc, mercury etc) out of the water.
Makes sense to me. :)
One that I could myself debunk was a "magnetic fuel efficency improver", where the claim that CO2 emissions was reduced by adding this thing to the fuel line. But what they didn't explain was why the CO and NOx emissions on the same (after) test-run was INCREASED - my explanation to that would be a difference in ambient temperature (higher in the second run), and since the car was using carburettor and not computerized fuel injection system, it would end up with less oxygen in the engine, causing less efficient burning of the fuel, and of course, less CO2. You can prove almost anything by selecting appropriate data!
I agree about non-ferromagnetic materials. :)
I think the theory is to pull the tiny bits of solid metals in the water, not metal ions.
These metals may have broken off from rusting lead and copper pipes, or are in the water for whatever reason.
But that may be a bit too paranoid. :D
EDIT: Ok, a little research shows lead and copper are non-ferromagnetic(not magnetic). I thought they were
non-ferromagnetic because they were ions, not solids.
Well, that theory goes out the window! :D
