Is the water in our bodies actual H2O? Would it be possible to somehow extract this water using a powerful enough purifying system for example?
Well they're definitely wrong. A person perspires a lot of water, you're doing it right now. If you put a person in an oven, water from your body evaporates, find a way to collect the water vapor, using some kind of condenser, you can collect the water from a person's body, leaving a dry crispy left overs.
Link to thread? I want to see how retarded they are.
Also keep in mind that a lot of the water will me mixed with other crap so it will require some serious distilling and filtering
I just assumed the possibility that people might be talking about other non-h2o liquids when talking about water in the human body, /vg/ fogged my mind and I was blinded by the dark side.
Actually 7.4 billion humans have consumed dihydrogen monoxide without dying.
Compared to the 100 billion humans that have died after consuming the chemical, that isn't a very good rate of survival. But it's certainly not 100%.
I think it's amazing that in this day and age, someone with access to the internet has such a shallow world view. That person has never realized one bit of the implications of atomic theory. It's probably close to how alchemists viewed nature. A living relic.

Steps for making gold:
Have rock. Have gold leaf. Cover rock in gold leaf till no rock surface can be seen. Chant rhythmic gibberish that sounds like angry chimps speaking Latin. Boil rock. Rock has now become solid gold. Profit heavily, write book.
Lead to gold, a universal solvent, and an elixir of youth, were never the goals of alchemy. All three of these things were used as examples of what someone with a perfect understanding of everything would theoretically be able to do, and as such the pursuit of these things was the 'goal' only insofar as to use as proof of your understanding, not as the reason anything was done. The purpose of alchemy was to understand how the universe worked.
