The CDC might disagree...

....." While useful for many things, rainwater is not as pure as you might think, so you can’t assume it’s safe to drink. Rain can wash different types of contaminants into the water you collect (for example, bird poop on your roof could end up in your water barrel or tank). Rainwater can carry bacteria, parasites, viruses, and chemicals that could make you sick, and it has been linked to disease outbreaks 3-4.

Says the man who usually places so much trust in the government.

The link to the CDC uses a lot of "may" and "might".  I agree with may and might.  However, at least hundreds of millions of people have been collecting and living off properly collected and stored rainwater for thousands of years.

I put little trust in the government, but I would definitely put more trust in the medical professionals that work at the CDC than a guy who lives in the boonies of NH.

The same people who are trying to label gun violence as a health epidemic? And get their hand in regulations to bypass legislative measures? Those doctors?

Yes, I read the article.  It mentions, "Some cisterns, which are common in certain areas,  can provide safe drinking water".  You bolded "properly collected and stored".  That's what I said.

Reading comprehension?

So what's your issue?

Maybe @Sniper will quote Pelosi or AOC when they say some snippet supporting his overly blanket statement.

My issue? The overly blanket statement by some here that collected rainwater is safe to drink that comes off their roofs. It can only be safe to drink if it's

"properly collected and stored"

Is that a difficult concept for you?

Who said that?

@JackDaWack I'm pretty sure I'm the one who said "properly collected and stored".  I never said run off from roof was okay.  

Apparently @Sniper has a reading comprehension issue and inability to understand the concept I stated.

Maybe I should type slower for him?

Is it too difficult to scroll back in the thread?

 

 

It's not, and I did before asking. 

 

I asked because..... I couldn't find a statement you were referring to.. no one suggested drinking water from roof run off. 

 

Rain water IS potable... 

Tap water is potable too, I wouldn't suggest drinking out of the toilet tho.

Don't call zeke a troll. He has issues, you should feel sorry for him.

I wasn’t calling anyone names and Zeke is not the guy I feel sorry for. You should be the one seeking pity. Apparently very few like you or your toxicity on this forum.

Well, I opened this thread with good intentions... and 90 percent of the replies were, in fact, very informative - so thank you all for that.

However, now that's it's descended into ridiculous toddler-like squabbling... it's no longer serving any useful purpose, is it? So, I'm just gonna lock it down! Disappointing... I must say. :(

    • Apparently, the rally Monday had ZERO effect on the politicians.. Richmond- The Virginia Senate approved legislation Wednesday that would allow authorities to take guns away from people deemed dangerous to themselves or others, as the state moves closer to joining a growing number of states enacting so-called “red flag” gun laws. SB 240 passed on a party line vote, 21-19, on Wednesday. The move came just two days around 22,000 people crowded Richmond's Capitol Square and surrounding areas to support the 2nd Amendment and protest proposed gun laws, like the 'red flag' law. The bill is one of several gun-control measures the new Democratic majority at the General Assembly is set to pass this year. Also on Tuesday, the Democratic-led House killed several pro-gun measures in a subcommittee meeting. Those GOP-backed measures included a bill to allow people to carry concealed handguns without a permit and to repeal a limit on carrying weapons in churches and other places of worship. https://www.whsv.com/content/news/Virginia-Senate-passes-red-flag-law-day-after-massive-gun-rights-rally-567172341.html
    • The London MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease is estimating there could already be 4000 cases in Wuhan, based on their calculations on how it's spread so far and the reporting by China: ...."Using the number of cases detected outside mainland China with who had disease onset by 18th January, it is possible (see Report 1 [14]) to infer the number of clinically comparable cases within Wuhan City that may have occurred thus far. Here we update our estimates to account for the additional international exported cases (7 cases). Summary We estimate that a total of 4,000 cases of 2019-nCoV in Wuhan City (uncertainty range: 1,000 – 9,700) had onset of symptoms by 18th January 2020 (the last reported onset date of any case) https://www.imperial.ac.uk/mrc-global-infectious-disease-analysis/news--wuhan-coronavirus/
