    the toilet?  Specifically waste water.
    I've heard before that this is where the planet is heading given how our clean water supply is shrinking.  I still don't think I want to drink that kind of water though...

          Wait, is it already happening?  I thought it was 'something for the future' regarding bringing it to reality.

      Yes of course I would, if it was thoroughly purified and tested.  When you think about all the mud and debris and animals and fish that have been pooing in our water before it gets to us now, what's the difference?

      Sure... it's hardly the worst that you can expose your body to.

    A minority of people get their fresh water from clean rain, wells, aquifers, or pristine melting glaciers.  The rest either don't have clean water, or it's purified from lake/river water or waste water. A lot of people are already drinking that last option and they're fine (and fine with it) so there's no cause for alarm.  The filtering process is really thorough.
