Thousands sign up to drink rancid tomb water

Don't drink what's inside this coffin... seriously... Image Credit: Facebook / Egypt Ministry of Antiquities
A petition has been launched to encourage people to drink the water from a 2,000-year-old sarcophagus.
The ludicrous petition concerns the recent unearthing of a large, black granite coffin at a dig site in Alexandria, Egypt which contains three decomposed skeletons submerged in sewage.

The individual who launched the petition, who goes by the name 'Innes mck' on change.org, maintains that the sarcophagus is 'cursed' and that drinking its contents will help people 'assume its powers'.

"We need to drink the red liquid from the cursed dark sarcophagus in the form of some sort of carbonated energy drink so we can assume its powers and finally die," he wrote.

The liquid is of course raw sewage that has been festering in the coffin for centuries. Attempting to drink it would almost certainly make a person extremely ill, if not extremely dead.

Incredibly, despite this, the petition has so far managed to rack up over 18,000 signatures.

"I just want to try the juice," wrote one user. "Thirsty," another quipped.

Suffice to say, the entire thing is almost certainly little more than a trolling exercise.

This smacks of 4chan.

Click on the link. This petition is real, unfortunately.

I arrive very late to this thread. I've enjoyed reading it .... it's fascinating! Thank you to all the posters who've brought so much background stuff to the story.

Its real; I was meaning to point that comment at the high volume of respondents smacks of either 4chan or reddit users having a laugh.

Drinking the Sarcophagus Soup kills you. Or gives you amazing superpowers. But mostly it kills you.

This sarcophagus was opened two weeks ago. Surely the analysis of the liquid found inside is finished by now, or at least a lot of it. Still, no release of information from the Antiquities Dept. My curiosity is overwhelming. I wonder when they will make this public.

So far none of them have been giant.

I'm not sure I buy that it is sewage water. If there was sewage water in the stone sarcophagus, then wouldn't there have been signs of sewage all around the sarcophagus? It looked like regular hard dry packed desert dirt to me. You'd think at least there'd be red tinged dirt/sand surrounding the sarcophagus.

Seems like the "Egyptian Scientists" called it poop water and everyone just decided to say, "Well, OK then....."

I know. I just can't accept this as sewage. It would have been in the soil around the sarcophagus also if that was the case. It wouldn't have only gone inside it. That makes no sense at all to me. They must really think we're stupid.
