The dangers of drinking water

December 14, 2011 § 1 Comment

My Mum just sent me this in an email.

How cool is my Mum? :)


To my friends who enjoy  a glass of wine..and those who don’t and are always seen with  a bottle of water in their hand.


As Ben Franklin  said:


In wine there is wisdom,

In beer there is  freedom,

In water there is bacteria.


In a number of  carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated

that  if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year  we would

have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli,  (E. Coli) – bacteria

found in faeces.


In other words, we are  consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that  risk when drinking wine & beer

(or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through

a  purification process of boiling, filtering and/or  fermenting.



Water = Poop,

Wine =  Health

Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk crap, than to drink water

and be full of  crap..


There is no need to thank me for this  valuable information:

I’m doing it as a public  service

I used the Autostitch app to do this which, due to multiple images ends up making any moving figures sort of ghostly.

Pic was taken from the choir stalls while I wasn’t required.

You can now see this concert online, on demand at iiNet Freezone

Open letter to Stephen Smith MHR Member for Perth

Wed 7th December 2011

Dear Stephen

I would urge you to share the following video and transcript with your cabinet colleagues and by doing so, to make representation on my behalf.

Remarks in Recognition of International Human Rights Day

Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Palais des Nations
Geneva, Switzerland
December 6, 2011

I have many friends on both sides of this debate but as a heterosexual male, I would like to see my gay and lesbian friends and colleagues treated with equal respect and dignity in this country to those rights which I am afforded by marriage to my partner.

Many of my friends with deeply held religious convictions are of the belief that marriage is a sacred rite, and as such, civil unions would appear to be a way to pay equal respect to these concerns.

I would add that if we are keen to follow America’s lead in matters of selling uranium to India, then surely we can also follow Secretary of State Clinton’s lead on the issue of human rights in our own country.

I thank you for your attention to this matter.

Yours sincerely

Alex Millier
