I cannot get clear answer on this as it seems to be broad variety and a huge "no/avoid" :rolleyes:

Cave with clear water with zero visible lifeform(any sort of fish, snail, etc) but yet clear blue water.

Ef it, jumped in, swim, dive. Tasted fresh, much better than tap I tasted my whole life. Did I discover Kung Flu Killer? :flipoff2:

Apparently, I read sign after the hike/cave about some parasite and bacteria in the cave/water. Guess the alcohol must've killed them. Oops? :grinpimp:
 
Hence, the question for why the water is clear without any algae, lifeform in the cave water, but yet taste fresh.

That water dollars to doughnuts has things you cant see in it they would be called parasites.

If you consume it you will get very sick and hate life, think cdiff stomach cramps etc.

Thanks for the details, time to countdown the hours/days before this kicks in.
 
That water is not clear. You can see the cloudiness in it.

Why did you drink it? Why not just play in it and drink normal water like you do every other day of your life. I assume this was not a survival situation.
 
Giardia and cryptosporidium are a mother fucker.

My FIL caught a super gnarly variant of Giardia in Alaska and spent a month in the hospital. It almost killed him and he was in his 50's and in really great health at the time. He said it was the worst abdominal pain he's ever felt in his life. He fortunately recovered and is in his mid-late 70's now.
 
I thought that your other senses were supposed to be heightened?
If I did that I'd drink bleach to kill the parasite. :flipoff2:

I would definitely take a picture of the sign and show it to a doctor to see if I should be on antibiotics or getting my affairs in order, good luck.
 
you just tainted the pur water by going in there.

Swim first drink later, dudes drinking his own ass juice :lmao:

If I was dieing of thirst I would drink it, I occasionally have a sip of water from random streams that look clear. :homer:

Landowner at the last shop I worked at had his legs amputated below the knee and arms below the elbow, digging around in his garden he picked up some funky bacteria. Didn't seem to slow him down much :usa:

:confused:Holy fuck this place is slippin

Jesus Christ man, algae can't grow without sunlight:rolleyes:

Your taste buds also cannot detect micro organisms in the water. There are plenty of life forms in that stagnant gross ass water. You will died in days. Please give your wife your login info here to give us minute by minute updates of the excruciating pain you're going through(because you will not be able to)
 
Is there another alternative besides drinking bleach? Tetanus shot to save his life?
 
Here's what I know about this type of stuff from watching shows on 1990s History Channel:
  • Don't jump into a surface pool of water anywhere near a hot-springs area, without testing the temperature first (I think I got that from Dante's Peak but it really happened)
  • There are deadly dissolved gasses in stagnant pools of water. Such gasses are released by disturbance, Lake Nyos in Cameroon kills people, some by deadly gas, some by explosive gas.
  • Cave water can travel in a column 100s of meters high in just a few seconds. You could be sucked into the earth or shot into the sky and you would be dead just from the water pressure. Basic hydraulic principles at work here and monitoring cave water is one way to measure seismic activity.
  • There are cold-water parasites that hang out in pools of cave water for literal thousands of years, at one point the oldest organism on earth was some type of ameoba in a cave pond, and it was thousands of years old they figure. Brain parasites fucking suck.
  • Hillbillies could be dumping toxic waste down there as part of a deal with the local city-slicker politician. I got that from a Seagal movie but again it happens in real life
  • Lost soccer teams down there
 
This is why whiskey was invented. Back in the olden times- you're thirsty, you drink that shit, you finish it with a shot. Necrotizing Fasciitis is not a good time.

:laughing:Don't forget the hundreds of drunken rednecks that also pissed in that water before smart guy jumped in and drank it:homer:
 
Take a sample and bring it to a lab or buy a cheap USB microscope.... you might begin to feel symptoms soon.
 
Get a life straw. You can drink from just about anything with it. They cost like $20.
