100% Pure!

Almost everyday I visit a juice corner to have freshly made fruit juice. While the shopkeeper makes the juice I stand at the counter and engage in some idle banter with him. When I ask him jokingly how much of the juice is pure fruit, he claims: "100%" while adding half a glass of water to it right in front of my eyes.

One day, the juice tasted more like water than fruit. The next day I told him that I would pay him extra if he did not add any water. He said: "70% of everything is water. It is good for you to have it."

Excellent general knowldge indeed! I found myself humbled by the awsome force of nature and 100% natural fruit juice containing 70% water...
