comment How can I tell when water is contaminated with industrial chemicals without any special equipment?
"so that you don't get sick from hand-to-mouth contamination with their gut flora, which your own body doesn't tolerate like it tolerates its own." -- OK, gross question, but are you saying your own feces won't make you (as) sick? I always assumed that lower GI germs introduced to the upper GI tract is what makes the fecal-oral route especially dangerous. Are you saying instead that someone might prepare food for the group with dirty hands and make everybody else stick, but not himself?

@Blackbear I'm glad you found my answer helpful. I added my response to your follow-up question to my answer because it became too long for comments.

comment What mountain is it?
@Liam It would seem to infringe upon your ability to use Gmail if you are unable to share a snapshot of your screen. Unless Gmail terms specifically forbid that action I'd say this is fair use of the image.

comment How to pick a trekking/hiking shoelaces?
I don't do much hiking so I refrained from answering myself, but I also like flat laces; they seem to be easier on the fingers and as you stated easier to un-knot. (+1)

comment Shall I buy a Large size shell if I am wearing Medium size Down Jacket?
I am voting to close this question. It really depends on the sizing of the specific shell that you are talking about; some brands leave more room than others. You do not want the insulation heavily compressed or it will not work correctly. You really need to try on the combination to see how it fits.
