    Why does mineral water that has “trickled through mountains for centuries" go out of date next year?

    This is NOT a stupid question. This is a serious one in fact. Water that flows always stays fresh. When it stops, it starts to get “rotten”. This is called stagnation. This is actually also a law of the universe “Law of Vibration” everything is constantly in motion, anything that doesn’t keep moving eventually dies.

    @ #47: Nothing “happens” to it. “Frozen” water (snow) refracts the light in such a way that it looks white to our eyes. This is because of how the molecules are oriented. The liquid form doesn’t do this to the water so it appears clear.
