Video: Taste Testing 60-Year-Old ‘Emergency Drinking Water’
OutdoorHub Reporters 03.15.18
What will happen if you drink 60-year-old “emergency drinking water?”
This sort of experiment seems perfectly suited for the Crazy Russian Hacker. In the video below, he cracks open a can of Cold War era H2O, and gives it a taste test.
First, in order to make sure he won’t keel over and die after consuming the water, he runs a couple quality tests. Then, it’s bottoms up!
Watch the video to see what happens:
Turns out, other than a “stale taste,” this 60-year-old water is still good after all these years.
Obviously, in the case of a serious emergency, you should seek something more refreshing than a can of water from the Cold War era, but if there’s truly nothing else and your dying of thirst, these apparently will do the trick.
