Nalgene bottle VS HRM bus
Many of you are probably familiar with the Nalgene bottles found in large numbers today, especially on college campuses. I have had one for about 4 years, and about 4 weeks ago I bought a new one. This morning, it fell out of the side pocket of my bookbag as I was getting off the bus, and ended up underneath a halifax regional municipality bus.
Amazingly, the thing survived, with just some damage to the top:
Which ocurred when the top popped off and the bus tire went directly over it.
The rest of the bottle just has a few scratches.
Unfortunately, it no longer seals properly due to a dent in the lid from being run over. So today I went and got a new one. Hopefully I will try not to get that one run over as well.
I dont know if it shows up well in the picture, but the white line not quite halfway across the bottom of the lid is a ridge from being squished.
