Water store opening on East 10th Street

Here we are on East 10th Street between First Avenue and Avenue A ... previously the brief home to Cowgirl's Bakery... Molecule is opening soon here...


Per the sign on the front window, it's "a better way to buy water." They will sell "hyper-filtered, perfectly pure, eco-conscious" water... looks as if they'll sell some organic, vegan and raw food too...

How on earth can you pay EV storefront rents by selling water?

I like the name and logo, tho, even if it is an idiotic concept.

Hahaha is this some kind of performance art project? Selling water, something that's free from the tap, to idiot gormands and health fetishists by enrobing it in some finely-textured adjectives?* Really? Eh, why should this even surprise me? Isn't there's a place that just makes pudding a few blocks away?

*Don't get me wrong -- I love me some gourmet ice cream and all manner of artisinal blah blah, but WATER?

Fine by me. If people want to get conned into buying "super-water" that is not better than tap, let them do so. Better than another bar or empty storefront.

Next thing you know they'll be applying for a liquor license for that vodka or scotch infused water.

And wouldn't be surprised if oxygen bars will be the next big thing. It's big in college campuses, (e.g.). Some universities even have the oxygen bars as their selling point for college kids to attend their school.

And when oxygen bars do hit the EV, also expect them to apply for a liquor license for that Caipirinha infused O2, and to pair that air with Kir, and that oxygen with Hefeweizen.

Nonetheless, people who are moving into EV have gotten tired of burning their money in The Hamptons.

I'll reserve judgement until the store opens. People spend a fortune on Vitamin Water and other expensive brands. This might make for a locally owned option for people who would otherwise give some corporation $$$.

Because Bloomberg insists on mass medicating us by adding flouride, a dangerous poison and chemical waste, which science shows does not help adults teeth in this form - smart people are doing what they can to remove the Dooomburg poison. Whenever I post this, a flood of Statist lapdogs arrive calling me names like "paranoid" or "Tin hat", but SCIENCE PROVES ME RIGHT.They can enjoy their arthritis and cancer and other immune related diseases. The State is mass drugging and poisoning us and the sheep get mad when I point it out.

I know nygrump would nominate Bloomburg as the root of all evil but fluoride has been added to the NYC water supply since 1964 at a level of 1 ppm (part per million).

In the fifties I grew up in a town where petitions were circulated that suggested our fluoridated water supply was a plot by the dirty Soviet Commies to poison us.
The Reds had infiltrated our government all the way up to Water Commissioner.

Break out the tin foil hats.

Ripper, he KNEW!

"General Jack D. Ripper: Mandrake, do you realize that in addition to fluoridating water, why, there are studies underway to fluoridate salt, flour, fruit juices, soup, sugar, milk... ice cream. Ice cream, Mandrake, children's ice cream. Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: [very nervous] Lord, Jack. General Jack D. Ripper: You know when fluoridation first began? Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: I... no, no. I don't, Jack. General Jack D. Ripper: Nineteen hundred and forty-six. 1946, Mandrake. How does that coincide with your post-war Commie conspiracy, huh? It's incredibly obvious, isn't it? A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual. Certainly without any choice. That's the way your hard-core Commie works. Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Uh, Jack, Jack, listen... tell me, tell me, Jack. When did you first... become... well, develop this theory? General Jack D. Ripper: [somewhat embarassed] Well, I, uh... I... I... first became aware of it, Mandrake, during the physical act of love. Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Hmm. General Jack D. Ripper: Yes, a uh, a profound sense of fatigue... a feeling of emptiness followed. Luckily I... I was able to interpret these feelings correctly. Loss of essence. Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Hmm. General Jack D. Ripper: I can assure you it has not recurred, Mandrake. Women uh... women sense my power and they seek the life essence. I, uh... I do not avoid women, Mandrake. Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: No. General Jack D. Ripper: But I... I do deny them my essence."

In lieu of applying for a liquor license, perhaps Kita the Wonder Dog of East 10th Street can apply for a fido franchise!
