The air pollution in China is so bad that some days you need to wear a mask to even go outside, yet they are freaking out because they are drinking boiled tap water from a faucet near a urinal?

Am I the only 1 who got interested in reading about the name screw-up that Niko posted right in the middle of the news article?

@ "fear" from going to a Starbucks, yet always going anyway.

IIRC hong kong is that place where there's a whole subcity of decaying high-rise apt bldgs with little or no utilities formerly run by triads. i bet those ppl would love to get starbucks-quality water.

Lol what did I read in the last paragraph?


And yeah it's tap water. A bit annoying it's in a fricking restroom though. There isn't a sink in the starbucks?
