    Rainwater is probably cleaner than the water you're drinking. At least there's a guarantee that it's actually been distilled, rather than being labelled tap water.

    Acid rain does not directly affect human health, even if you drink it. It's only harmful to plants, soil, and aquatic creatures. Damage to those things might affect us, but acid rain does not. Even at Beijing levels, it's not going to be beiging your shirts. That's more likely from dissolved minerals in your tapwater.

    Water always contains dissolved minerals, even when it is distilled. Rainwater, having existed as vapor in the atmosphere, is as close to being naturally distilled as possible.

    Only completely deionized water is really 'pure'. We don't drink that. It's only used in industrial processes. Do you know why? Because it corrodes the enamel of your teeth.

    Yeah. Pneumonia.

    A human being will never spend enough time exposed to rain for minute amounts of sulphur dioxide to corrode their corneas or respiratory tracts.

    Right. That's sort of the point of environmentalism is that creatures sharing ecosystems are interdependent, regardless of their relative positions on the food chain. Even urban areas are ecosystems. Acid rain doesn't directly affect humans at all, but the damage it does to buildings, plants, and aquatic animals will eventually affect us if we don't do something about it.

    But suggesting that you shouldn't go outside in the rain because Beijing is polluted is beyond ignorant. The only time Beijing's air is even remotely clean is when there's enough moisture to turn all that dust from construction and the Gobi desert into mud.

    I've been drinking something like two glasses of tap water a week for the last two years that I've spent here, on average. My penis has increased noticeably in size and I can hear your thoughts.

    Well, sometimes I just get lazy and I don't feel like leaving my house to buy water. So, the tap. WATER DRAGON HEAD!?
