#1 Lots of questions. Isn't bleach white ? I haven't seen a clear bleach.

Is this where plebs go to feel rich ?

Also, the earlier attacks on people happened at the same place ? the FBI should have issued a travel advisory by now.

#2 Here in the USA, bleach is available clear like water although there is a very strong chlorine smell with it, which makes it hard to drink it accidentally.

#3 So she either had to be already quite drunk, or olfactorily impaired to have had it.

Never seen white bleach, just sodium hypochlorite & water. What do you put in it to make it white?

#5 Re: #3, the article said she just took a sip and spat out most of it almost right away.

#7 Regular bleach is about 5% sodium hypochlorite by weight. If ingested, it is recommended that a person rinse out their mouth with milk or water and then drink a glass of milk or water and call a poison control center. Often, a small amount of bleach is added to water to make it potable.

I doubt that it was household bleach that caused the two deaths.

#8 Tucker may singlehandedly tank DR tourism, and good on him for doing the job the State Department should have been doing.

#10 "I thought the maid service, maybe to not carry the bleach bottle from room to room, would maybe put it into a smaller bottle," Montes told the Daily News. "Or maybe they were trying to take it home to clean their house."

Huh, WTF?!? I mean, yeah, all hotels put unsealed or uncapped bottles of bleach into the mini-bar.

I wonder if those medical records show a blood-alcohol content.

THIS story is bizarre.

#11 They wouldn't have employed a certain Batarian bartender formally of Aria's establishment?
