More Water Whackos!

So there I was on another forum randomly discussing stuff related to science and why we need people to have more than a basic factual grounding to spot pseudoscience.  Granted it would probably take a degree to have a hope in hells chance of debunking but I’m just talking enough science to spot that there’s something fishy going on.
