Battery Water Announced today!

To help out during the Covid-19 emergency, from today the UK government has introduced battery water as a free initiative.

Until the emergency is lifted, householders will receive pre-charged mains tap water.

Here's how it works:
from 12am to 12pm beginning today, positively charged water will be delivered and from 12 mid-day until midnight, this will be complimented by negatively charged water.

The water is totally safe to drink, but to be used as a source of battery power, it should be kept in separate containers. Two small glasses will be sufficient to operate a low wattage light bulb for 20 minutes, while several gallons are needed to power a toaster.

Note - boiling the water neutralises the effect.

       These waters, not run through a coiled pipe that has magnets and wiring attached, are they? I wouldn't want spoiled water.

       Would a sip from the first delivered batch improve my personality?

       Isn't it a bit late for you to consider getting one ? You've managed perfectly well so far...

       What if you shower at midnight?

       You turn into [21Quest].   

       If you then feed him after midnight, you get [UnaBubba].   

       Be warned.

       For those who failed to take up the opportunity of the Water Battery initiative yesterday, there was such a drain on the UK’s reservoirs, that the entire scheme was switched off at midnight. This means there is nothing to be gained by way of electrical storage as a result of any future timed water fillings.

       //battery water as a free initiative.//   

       So you’re saying that this battery water was free of charge?
