Wednesday is World Water Day – a day to remember 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water that's contaminated. Dirty water poses a risk of disease, like cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.

So this year, people have been raising awareness by bringing back that bottle flipping thing that was all over the internet for a while. (If you've somehow managed to erase the bottle flipping craze from your memory, here's a refresher.)

The GoMN team decided to get in on the action, and we did ... OK. Especially considering most of us didn't have any strategy, whatsoever.

This year's World Water Day theme is wastewater, or how to reduce and reuse water. For a bunch of wastewater facts, click here.
