If a child poops in the local swimming pool the entire pool has to be emptied of occupants but if you put a freakin' corpse in a hotel water supply for two weeks there isn't a problem - according to the tests.
Well I'm not really all that big on govvamint either but I might agree with them somewhat here.
If you were a floater in a water tank, I'd be happier to drink the water than if you dropped a floater in it.
According to the government teh small amounts of chlorine in the drinking water killed off all the bad bacteria whereas the eye-redding levels of chlorine in the local swimming pool doesn't quite cut it.
Entire corpse rotting in a tank of drinking water for two weeks: No problemo.
Toddler poops his diaper on the other end of the pool: Run for your life.
When the Columbia was still in orbit, NASA on the ground had a pretty good idea that the reentry would end in catastrophe. They chose to keep them in the dark. They didn't want a small crew on a small ship to panic. If that calmness was worth keeping them in the dark, do you think the government would do everything they could to keep the public from panicking (unless it fits their agenda).
