Drinking may have several possible effects. First, you could become less thirsty than you were. But not necessarily: drinking salt water will make your thirst worse. Second, you could become less able to eat than you were; that is, you could fill up on liquid. This is not necessarily a good idea in the long run, unless you're trying to lose weight. Third, there could be one or more intoxication affects, if the liquid is alcoholic, drugged or poisoned. Fourth, there could be one or more nutritional affects, depending on the type of liquid. Whew! - makes you want to kindof watch what you put down your throat, doesn't it? Good, that's the idea.

Because the command is enabled for "natural language" parsing, you can use all kinds of variations and still be understood. "Drink from the fountain", "drink from fountain", "drink a bottle", "drink the second bottle", "drink 2.bottle" and many others will all do fine.
