Kyleray Katherman of North Bend, Oregon wanted to stick it to the man when his school banned water bottles in class. Some students had been using water bottles to bring alcohol into the school, while the rest of the kids had been using them because they knew the drinking fountains were filthy.
Sick and tired of foul drinking fountain water, Kyleray embarked on a scientific mission to prove to school administrators that the drinking fountains held an unacceptable amount of bacteria. While other children who wish to humiliate their authority figures pee on walls or bring tin snips to school, Kyleray used his mind and set to swabbing several drinking fountains in the school along with a toilet, just to compare.
His results were staggering: the water in the toilet was leaps and bounds cleaner than what was coming out of the drinking fountain...and he even swabbed the rim of the toilet during the sample.
School administrators were quick to have the drinking fountains cleaned, but not to lift the ban on bottled water. Kudos to you little Kyleray. You're a regular little Nancy Drew.
