What's wrong with blue water?

:ask: :whine:

Well, it's not just the fact that it's blue, and appears to be water. There is no way to know (without analyzing the liquid from EACH vial) what else might be in there, dissolved in the "water," or living in it. Granted, it'd likely be somewhat cloudy rather than clear if there were microbes in it, but the bottom line is that you do not know what's been put in there, and even a "sniff test" may not be diagnostic of the contents. Ingesting it would not be a good idea.

But... but... if it looks like blue water, then it must be blue water, right? I mean... I mean... what if I'm thirsty and that's all there is?

(please note... I'm purposely being a douche because this topic doesn't deserve seriousness, IMO... :mrgreen: :P )

Oh, very well then . . . lost in a desert . . . and faced with a choice between the who-knows-what water-like mystery substance with the ghosts in there --- and death. Then I'd say, "Quaff on, my lad, but don't say I didn't warn ya!"
