Muslims like to pretend like their inane laws and regulations have a fuctional purpose of some sort. Truth of the matter is that all they do is really just propagate and mimic Mo's OCD behaviour without question.
I dunno if you guys have heard of the sunnah way of drinking water, which goes like: drink it in 3 gulps not in one gulp and say bismillah before each gulp, you also have to be sitting not standing.
I have at least heard 5 times that a 'scientist', whose name is not mentioned so we can't look him up in this age were information is readily available, discovered that it was the best and most healthy way to drink. And people go subhanallah. Seriously a lot of them need a reality check.
