My parents won't let me drink ice water. They say it's "unhealthy". Whatever

Well that's what I thought. Then I imagined "how on earth would iced water be bad for you?". That's a rather strange thing to be banned from drinking haha. It's alright though, go crazy when you start uni and drink all the water with ice that you like!

    I think that it's not so much "ice water" but "cold drinks" in general, which extends to pop with ice in it too, slushies and so on. I know my mom and some people get headaches beyond just a brainfreeze from drinking cold stuff like that. They need hot drinks at all times.

    Or his parents believe there is truth in one of the studies that found an apparent link between liver failure and ice water or something to that effect. Yes, such studies got media spotlight time.

    How would Ice water cause Liver Failure, it's just water with frozen pieces of more water if you want to get technical. I need my cold drinks in the summer when it's 95 degrees, a hot drink just wont do, though hot drinks in the winter are lovely.

      I do try to minimize the soda, but a nice cold Sprite on a hot day is wonderful.

        Ice water is the cause of greenhouse gases and global warming. It also caused Hurricane Sandy and thus the lives and homes of many innocent people.

        Don't drink ice water kids.

          Once I ate fudge and a similar thing happened to me. I love Mountain Dew though. Especially Voltage. Voltage is my favorite Mountain Dew flavor.

          I always associate Mountain Dew with gamers, like my brother and all his gamer friends when they used to have parties and there would be at least 10 bottles of the stuff around.

          That must be why I love it so much. They need to bring it to Ireland. All they have is Mountain Dew energy, which is crap lol.

          It's more rather that my "balance of life force" will be upset and my stomach will shrink and stuff (it sounds a lot less cult-ish in Chinese though :p). I'm not sure if it's true but it kinda seems to work.

          Mountain Dew is the most disgusting soft drink ever manufactured. I associate Mountain Dew with those mid-twenty year old gamers with really long dirty blonde hair who don't wash and sit around with an Xbox 360 controller at hand all day, everyday and rely on their parents for money because they don't have jobs.

          Which is probably why mountain dew is so disgusting to you. Associate it with butterflies and rainbows and ****

          I drank Mountain Dew before I made that association.

          Regular Mountain Dew is just so disgusting. I don't mind High Voltage.

          That's a rather large stereotype to associate with a soft drink lol. It's down to personal tastes. I quite enjoy it, but I don't think I'll be one of those guys.


          Besides, I'm a PC gamer, don't play no xbox.

            What's so bad about Mountain Dew? None of the sodas I drink really taste bad at all.

            On that note, I'm baffled that people even think that Pepsi and Coca Cola have two distinct tastes. They taste similar enough to me that I don't give a **** which I'm drinking.

            I do like that stereotype you used though. Too perfect.

            For me, it's the taste (which I don't like at all) and the feeling I get after I drink it. In a way, it's the perfect soft drink for me because it represents everything soft drinks are doing to your body, because I feel like crap (the things it does to my stomach uuugh) after I drink any amount of Mountain Dew.

              Hey man, at least I'm not as fragile as a twig. I could walk into you and you'd just break.

              I'm going to force everyone to drink water once I rule the universe and ban all soft drinks. Bring on the hate.
