It's cool how they drink fog but what would that taste like and I didn't even know that FOG was drinkable.

I can understand why they net the fog to gather water to use for bathing and cooking. Especially since they don't get that much rain either. Even though it is all around in the air over oceans and and dirty areas but they need to do it for their families and their selves. I would do it if i had to.
