Posted May 08, 2018 06:10:18The drinking game ‘drinking the water’, invented by a young man who was on his own for two weeks in the late 1990s, is being revived.
In a video posted on YouTube on Wednesday night, a young girl shows how to play drinking the water.
It’s part of the ‘Drink the Water’ series, where young Australians are encouraged to play with drinking water for two to four hours.
Drinking water is a common part of Australian culture, but it can also cause diarrhoea and lead to dehydration.
The drinking water game involves drinking water from the tap, then sitting in a bucket and watching as a person drinks.
One of the videos on the ‘Water Challenge’ website encourages participants to play for two hours.
“What is the drinking water?
So how does it get to your mouth?
The answer is by sucking.
You know that’s true.
But how do you get that water to your drink?”
Participants have to make sure they’re not spitting or getting a “bad taste” from the water, and they can’t touch the water before they finish.
They can’t put their hands into the water because they might get a nasty taste, and the water is cold.
Participants are told to watch a video to find out what happens when they put their water into the bucket, and then they’re given an ice cube.
Participant Emily Loynes is a 21-year-old Australian of African descent, who was diagnosed with a rare form of CJD at the age of 18.
“I’m a black girl from Africa, and I was born in Australia, and it’s really hard for me to go out and have fun, and to have fun is when you’re having fun,” Ms Loyne said.
She said she’d play the drinking game with her friends, who she said were all “from different backgrounds”.
It’s been so good. “
You just get to know your friends and you’re like, ‘This is what’s going on, I’m so happy to do this for you’.” She has been using the game since the summer and said it’s made her feel like she was a part of something bigger than herself.
“It’s been so good.
It’s really good to be part of this, because it’s fun,” she said.
Ms Loyns said the game had also helped her focus on school.
