I only drink pure water, mostly.
96% of what I drink is pristine and totally pure, treated, and certified.
Of course I am no absolute purest.
3.7% of what I take in is gray water.
I am careful to limit my consumption of raw sewage to less than 0.27% to protect my health.
I am also careful with my mental health.
I am careful to invest my efforts in meaningful work and relationships, in order to make the world better.
I only allow myself to indulge in amplifying the pain 3.7% of the time.
These activities involve: seething in anger, cowering in fear, wallowing in sadness, and skulking in shame.
I have a hard limit (of 0.27%) on how much time I spent planning murder, adultery, and exploitation.
After all I seek to be mostly pure.
