Sparkling water fountain
It's been a while since I've been willing to show you this. This, ladies and gentlemen is a public fountain, and like all public foutains it gives water, except that this one sparkles... Don't go thinking it dispenses fancy sparkling water like Badoit or San Pellegrino, but just Paris tap water in which they put gas. Only in France? No, not really, apparently the idea comes from Italy where it's pretty common! Shame they don't plan to extend this to our taps... Like they thought it would happen back in 1957 (see this funny little video, especially at 1:05 minute).
