    Hey, sometimes in the developing world, it's all you have.

    Have a picture of the ad, or at least what product/company it's promoting?

    Re: Dirty water ad

    i know that the site is funded by the ads and all that, but lately it's gotten a bit excessive. while posting this, i've counted 13 ads on this page lol

    yeah this ad is kind of funny.

    Simple solution: use FireFox with AdBlocker. It makes surfing so much better in general.

    I don't mind the ads. I just think this is one stupid. He's obviously not drinking it, it's pouring out the sides of his mouth, LOL! Of course no one is going to drink water from the bottom of the Mississippi...

    I was watching a little bit of Lawrence of Arabia with my 5 year old daughter and she was amazed and questioning why they were drinking water that looked like mud in the desert. While I was explaining that they had to drink whatever water they could find, I realized that it is time to start showing her what life is like for people in other parts of the world. As a whole, we Americans have no idea how good we have it.

    Oh, I know we are spoiled. I'm not questioning that. But this is an ad for Iowa's Water and Land Legacy. I've never seen a glass of water like that in Iowa...
