Water + You Drinking It = What!?Science brain teasers require understanding of the physical or biological world and the laws that govern it.
"Hello folks, I am a man with a weird situation. Every week I will give you a situation in which you will have to find the answer to the question. Okay, here is the scenario:
"Two men were talking about water. One man was a chemist, and the other was a doctor. The doctor said, 'If you have pure water and drink it, it could potentially kill you.' But the chemist said, 'That's ridiculous! If you have pure water with nothing else in it, it won't kill you. If that was true I'd have been dead for years.'
"So which man was correct?"
HintIt is only pure water, and it has not been tampered with.
AnswerThe doctor was right. If you drink enough water in a short period of time, it could potentially cause you to drown on a cellular level, resulting in death.
Don't worry, it would take a lot of water with no bathroom breaks!!!
