    This is a quick poll question:

    If you were walking on the streets, particularly on a hot summers day and you passed a stall/stand offering free water, would you take one?

    If you have the time, also reply below what other free drink you would want to have at the stall from these options:

    A lightly carbonated isotonic sports drink.

    Orange or mixed fruit power drink - Refreshing, energising drink with added vitamins and offered in two flavours - orange or mixed fruit.

    Low calorie lemon iced tea - Lightly sparkling carbonated iced tea drink.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: THE BOTTLE IS SEALED LIKE REGULAR WATER AND IS FROM AN ORGANISATION WITH SEVERAL PEOPLE GIVING OUT THE WATER IN PROMOTIONAL T-SHIRTS.

    I'd be slightly suspicious, but if it looked reputable then probably yes. I did a couple of summer ago on the tube when it got hot

    You have to take any freebies! It's basically an unwritten rule.

    Yes, I'd take the water. For the 2nd drink I'd take the mixed fruit power drink.

    id take it if it was bottled and the lid hadnt been removed. if not it could be dirty so id keep going and buy it (well it actually really depends on how thirsty i am!)

    i would like to try lemon iced tea as i havent yet but as im in the middle of the street id just take orange drink.

    EDIT: and it mustn't be volvic as that water is nasty. evian or vittel for me :yy:

    If it was hot, I'd probably go for water. It would hydrate me the longest.

    I was forced to do something along the lines of this with my church but I couldn't be bothered / chickened out and ended up putting a few bottles of water on a wall and wandering around aimlessly for 2 hours until I found some other guys who were in my group and were actually doing it.

    I can't just hand random bottles of water out to random people, could be poisoned or some ****.

    If you were giving anything out for free, I'd take it. Even if I didn't particularly like it (e.g. I hate iced tea) then I'd just give it to someone who did like it.

    There are plenty of people who do this in various city centres - and yes, I usually take what's given. If I don't drink it, I can usually give it to someone who will back home.
