3. Can't they airdrop bottled water? It floats doesn't it? Just drop it

How many 12oz Evian bottles can a BUFF
hold? Maybe carpet bombing from 50,000ft.

Dropping water bottles into nasty water seems like a good way to cause people to get sick.

Actually, most of the water would be brackish/salt in NO, Doesn't fresh water float on salt water? Not to mention the little air space in the bottles.

But... That is a dumbass idea. Can you imagine thousands of 1 lb H2O bombs coming in at terminal velocity?

The sad thing is there are members here who want to do the same thing.

Great WKRP reference though.

Exactly! Typhus and cholera don't care that the INSIDE of the bottle is clean. Let's hope these people don't work in hospitals!

Actually, it's a great idea...but not to help people. Use it as cover to fight the looters.
Fly Hercs on CAP patrols around the city loaded with water bottles and when see roving scum drop the stuff on them by the ton.
