What ever happened to personal responsibility?  I know it's hot, I
know I'm going to be fighting/supporting fighters, I know i should
bring stuff to hydrate with.

The waterbearers are amazing, but I don't think it should absolve folx
of having to take care of themselves, too.  No, people should die
because they're dumb, but seriously, there is something to be said for
folx having to step up and realize they're adults and responsible for
their own health and safety too.
