Someone in the office grabbed this Vitamin Water, in hopes of cooling some “hangover hot-pipes” and noticed it was “rotten”. Does water “rot”? What the hell is that floating around in there?
Looks like a kernel of corn. Or a tooth! Maybe it's half of a multivitamin.

Here's how water rots: bacteria festers and reproduces in the bottle over time, eventually giving the water a rotten quality that makes it taste awful.
I buy distilled water now, because when I bought gallon bottles of regular drinking or "purified" water, it would rot after a few days. Distilled water, since it's boiled into vapor that condenses into a new container, rather than run through a filter, lasts a lot longer before it accumulates enough bacteria to rot, if it does at all.

Huh? Most "distilled" water is reverse-ionized, not boiled, and water doesn't "rot". There's not enough bacteria in water to make any difference. Spring water in bottles should last darn near forever.
If your bottled water is going bad in a couple of days, there's something very funky going on over at your house.
Ever seen a reservoir? That water has been sitting right there in the open air for yonks and isn't "rotting". And bacteria isn't bad for you, anyways.
But the stuff in the Vitamin Water bottles isn't water; it's sugar water, which is a different thing. Sugar water might conceivably develop a mold after a while, but it's not going to be small, hard, and yellow.

Given I've had friends who've opened previously unopened bottles of water and found it 'rotten', it's probably not unique to my house and vitamin water.
And by a few days, I didn't mean a couple. I meant like more than a week. That's for opened bottles that were fine the first time you opened them. As for the unopened rotten bottles, don't know what to tell you.

I think that's the earing I lost yesterday. Did ya check the seal on that thing. I was looking for that pink Vitamin water for about an hour yesterday! I knew I left it somewhere in the damn office.

Gomez, I have never had water that is rotted, can you describe the taste? Totally curious here!

A nugget of Kelly Clarkson's cellulite, *free* in every bottle of Vitaminiwater!

Does it glow in the dark?
It's kind of comforting to think that perhaps if life as we know it on the planet were to come to an abrupt end, it might be regenerated from scratch in bottles of vitamin water.
Don't let any fundamentalists see it. They may want to force you to let it gestate.

No, life can only be spontaneously regenerated in bottles of "Orbitz" soda, which I have had the good to have enjoyed:

Fortune. Good fortune. Fucking time for a drink, my eyes are drying out.
What's the concern all about? It's
obviously just hangover backwash.
Enjoy the margarita, Farnf.

It's Fnarf, not Farnf, and I'm not allowed to drink margaritas. Whenever I drink tequila in any form things get set on fire. L'il ol' wine drinker, me.

Kelly, I'm so hungover right now. This picture is that much more disgusting to me today, it made me convulse and laugh simultaneously. Thanks!

Did you notice the finger(nails) of the entity holding the bottle? Pathetic. With those filthy digits, I'm truly curious why they might be
possibly concerned about what might be in the
bottle....they obviously didn't give a damn
the evening before.

It's not dirt, it's racetrack. That's what I say.
