The microbes have been proven to shorten human life expectancy by 1.2 days for every 12 quarts absorbed in the stomach. With hotel room cups, depends on the hotel, but roughly 1.4 days


12 quarts of microbes is a lot though.


If you do it right, you will strengthen your immune system. #FirstWorldPussies


Don't drink the sink water!!


^quarts of tap water :)

You're not paying for the $5.00 bottled water in your room...why not drink that?
