Matt Damon Does Ice Bucket Challenge With Toilet Water! (Video)

Matt Damon was challenged to do the Ice Bucket thing… and he responded. Boyyy did he respond. Y’all do ice water. Matt does cold TOILET water. WHY????

“It posed kind of a problem for me, not only because there’s a drought here in California, but because I co-founded; and we envision the day when everybody has access to a clean drink of water — and there are about 800 million people in the world who don’t — and so dumping a clean bucket of water on my head seemed a little crazy.”

So…how about genuine toilet water? Ewww, right? Well, toilet water in the West is still cleaner than much water billions have to drink! Get it now? Great video showing Matt accepting the challenge…and challenging three friends to do the same. Clooney, Bono, Brady…it’s on you now!

Texans Will Soon Be Drinking Treated Waste Water. Who’s Thirsty? (Video)

How thirsty have you EVER been? Would you ever consider toilet water? What if it was guaranteed purified at a higher quality than the tap water you drink now? What if local authorities made it so that, very soon, treated waste water (including that reclaimed from sewer reservoirs) was pumped directly into your home’s water pipes? Businessweek reports that that is the deal in Wichita Falls (Texas, USA) now. The nightly news telecast clip above, from a while back, talks about another Texas town about to do the same thing. Okay, get all your ew’s out now… Done yet? Good. Drink up! It’ll be alright.

“You can take any water and turn it into drinking water. There is the technology out there to take out everything.”

Joseph Cotruvo, Washington water consultant

Now, I grew up drinking well water (still do, when I get home to Tuskegee) with a basic filter on the capture tank and another on the faucet… no treatment, chemicals or nothing… I have also had the “cleaner” bottled water. I suppose I could get used to something in between. I know I could if I lived in constant drought conditions and there was no other choice (especially once demand for bottled water drove its price higher than gas at the pump).

How about you?
