Re: OT: Self-filling water bottle?

I was referring to the linked article in the op, which said the bike bottle was for use in places with high humidity but scarce groundwater.

Re: OT: Self-filling water bottle?

Re: OT: Self-filling water bottle?

I was curious about this, so I was trying to find a region that has high humidity but low groundwater--my google skills have failed. Do you know of some examples?

Re: OT Flint water...drip...drip...drip

May be cheaper overall to evacuate the city.

Re: Whole World Knows He Said It.

A lot of scientists think that we have already reached the point of no return. Only a few of them will say so in public, because they are hoping that they are wrong and they still want to try to set things right, even if the try is futile. [more]
