Random Commuter Observation (TM)

Ol' Robbo, as regular camelidophiles will know, has been suffering something fierce from the oppressive heat and humidity this summer.

This morning, staggering into the local Starbucks literally dripping with sweat, my eyes fell on a bottle of something calling itself "Metroelectro". It purports to be "micronutrient water" and to contain antioxidants and electrolytes. And it comes in a hip, metrosexual bottle. [Ed. - How can a bottle...oh, never mind.]

Well, I bought a bottle and basically chugged it. And now I feel better. I can't say whether this is due to some actual physiological effect or whether it's an illusion brought on by the fancy advertising, but either way I'll take it.

You don't seem the type easily seduced by placebos. It's quite possible the nutrients in it are useful regardless of the packaging. Sounds like you were borderline dehydrated, so electrolytes were well in order.
