Saturday afternoon I was drinking a bottle of water (and eating a brownie…) when I noticed an expiration date on the bottle.
Which started me thinking.
What happens to water when it expires?
Does it no longer taste like water? Do the chemical bonds weaken and burst, leaving a bottle filled with separated hydrogen and oxygen gas? (For the record, Tesla kind of hopes for this, largely due to the increased flammability quotient.) Do water-bottle-Oompa-loompas appear and carry away the offending beverage? (Or the consumer, for proper de-oxygenating at some Wonka-esque underground facility?)
I was half-tempted to close the bottle and leave it, just to find out.
But then I got thirsty, so I guess the world will never know.
