A small water bottle is around 12 ounces. Common sense says if I drink 43 water bottles (4 gallons), it will probably be a problem. Just like if ate 43 cheesesteaks or drank 43 beers or took 43 vitamins.

I was in a Burger King yesterday and saw a kid around 14 years old trying to figure out one of the new style coke soda machines. You select the drink you want then hold the push button to pour it. He stood there for 3 minutes with a confused look on his face, then walked back to the counter, but seemed too embarrassed to ask the cashier how to work the machine so he walked back over to it. I considered explaining to him how to use it, but I figured it'd be more fun to see how long it took him to figure it out. 2 minutes later, still confused, he couldn't figure it out, and his Dad walked over to see what was taking so long. He asked his Dad, "how I do dis?"

He was tripping out because there was two kinds of orange drank.

He was cramping during football practice Tuesday night because of dehydration. The teen drank 2 gallons of water and 2 gallons of Gatorade.

Oliver couldn't drive home after practise and when his mother came to pick him up from school he seemed to be doing better.

He later collapsed at home and was airlifted to the hospital early Wednesday morning where he died at 1 AM.
4 gallons is a lot. don't know how he managed to drink all that in such a short time.

this woman drinks more but that's over an entire day.
