@ETHYLMERZ: That hose wasn't dangerous. Don't remember what they were made of back in my day but the hose was our salvation during Summer. We drank from it when the adults wouldn't let us back in the house and were left to our own devices. The hose was a great relief when we needed to cool down. Nothing like a squirting hose to make us happy!

We girls riding our bikes out in the country, without a care in the world! Stopping at a farmhouse to ask if we could drink water out of their hose....never thought it was dangerous.
