Why drink any water or ice made from New Jersey water?

The bottled water sold at SFGAdv is far superior to crappy New Jersey tap water.

Do you have any idea just how many people put their mouths on them or spit in them?

When a tree falls in the forest, and there is nobody around, does it make a sound?

Falling trees don't normally cause dysentery though...

Or radiation poisoning...

well guys, a new article has come out recently:
http://jtown.us.com/?p=244
Chang coming to Six Flags Great Adventure

Jackson, NJ – It is now almost certain that the new ride which will be built in place of Great American Scream Machine will be the coaster which was named ”Chang”. Last week, Six Flags submitted a site plan to the Jackson Township planning board for a new steel roller coaster. The overhead rendering of the new ride however matches 100% with “Chang” which was in operation at Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom from 1997 to 2009 when it abandoned the theme park. The theme park was taken over by the Kentucky State Fair Board, but part of the agreement allowed Six Flags to take one coaster.

The ride was originally rumored to be headed to Six Flags Great America, but site plans submitted by Six Flags all but confirm that the new steel rollercoaster which will replace the Great American Scream Machine is most likely Chang. Six Flags is expected to officially unveil the new coaster in the spring of 2010.

You can see a picture of Chang before it was dismantled at Coastergallery.com. You can see the diagram submitted to Jackson Township’s planning board [url="http://jtown.us.com/?p=239"]here[/url].

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

you would be surprised. the quality of the ground water in the majority of new jersey is very, very good. except for the area around the meadowlands and pompton lakes, and toms river, water in the aquifer (especially south jersey) is contaminant free.

the bottled water is probobly just tap from an industrial city elsewhere.

MOD EDIT by larrygator: I have never had a good glass of tap water in New Jersey, and I've been pretty much all over the state (Newark, Trenton, Sparta, Jersey City, Hoboken, Parsippany, Hackensack, Edison, Lakewood, Howell, Atlantic City, Wildwood, Ocean City, Seaside, Belmar, Breille, Keansburg, Atlantic Highlands, Hazlet, Perth Amboy, Woodbridge, Cherry Hill, All the Brunswicks, Old Bridge, Wall Township, Brick, Manahawkin, LBI, Tuckerton, Tinton Falls, Mantoloking, Lavalette, Morristown, GGalssboro, Hoptacong, Somerset, Matawan, Waretown, Point Pleasant, Asbury Park, Brigantine, Long Branch, Cape May), no good water.

Why did the mod feel the need to edit that post? Who cares what the water in New Jersey tastes like. Everyone has different opinions. Talk about the park...not the freaking water. We don't care all the places you've been to in Jersey.

MOD EDIT by larrygator: because I didn't want to post for posting's sake and agree we should be talking about the park and not the water
