    I smile at the obligatory bottle of water that people carry around now.

    I also sometimes tear my hair out when an otherwise interesting lecture on YouTube is interrupted by the speaker carefully unscrewing the lid on his bottle, awkwardly upending the bottle so we get to see his adam's apple, noisily glug gluging down some water, then carefully rescrewing the lid back on his bottle.

    I suppose it gives him thinking time, but it looks and sounds awful.

    When the world was slightly more civilised, conference organisers would provide the speaker with a decanter of water and a glass, and a skilled speaker would just take a little sip every now and again without anyone hardly noticing it, and a skilled speaker could do this without pausing for breath or interrupting his flow of words.

    Yes, I have a real bee in my bonnet about this...
