comment How to deal with a rifle scope where the relief is too short?
It's not that it's too close, it's that my next is straining forward, such that I'm no longer fully relaxed while I shoot. It's resolved now, as far as I'm concerned. I was able to move the scope back a little by tinkering with the mounts.

comment How safe is drinking distilled water?
Water, purified enough, cannot be distributed through stainless steel pipes. Instead, they use glass pipes to transport it within the plants where it's made. Obviously, the purified water that most people will encounter is quite harmless, because it's not really all that pure.

On the caustic part, no. My Dad's a chemical engineer who used to make calls on a plant that made lab-grade distilled water. Here's a description of the Z machine, with links to distillation and de-ionization that's used to prepare the water: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Z_machine

comment When to kill and bleed a fish
That should be fine. I'm not a doctor or microbiologist or anything, though. :) Besides, you're cooking the fish later, and that should kill anything that does grow on it.
