The question I've always wanted answered is "How can you tell?" Just because the asker of a question (or anyone else) can't understand how answering it would possibly implicate the answerer in a crime doesn't mean it can't do so.

Because your chances of killing yourself wandering around out here in the summer without water are MUCH higher than your chances of contracting Valley Fever. I've lived in the Phoenix area for 12 years and it's pretty much common knowledge as far as I can tell.

And thirst is not a good guide for when to drink. By the time you even feel thirst, you are already on your way to dehydration. That goes even more for hot dry places like Phoenix.

Their website is almost a parody of corporate websites. Apparently they've won something called the "Corporate Compliance of the Year Award" for 2012. What the hell is that? The words are English, but they don't parse to anything meaningful to me.
