A woman died while participating in a contest to see who could drink the most water before having to go to the bathroom, in order to win a Wii. (get it)

Pretty sad. But that's a pretty extreme circumstance. I don't think anyone drinking at a regular rate could hurt themselves.

My guv'ner gets upset with me if I drink LESS than 4 litres each day. Yes, if you really work at it, water is a poison - but 4 or 5 litres over the day - and visits to the smallest room as necessary - no problem.
