#0159: Water! (Suggested by Milen Alem)

It’s the most abundant resource on the entire planet next to oxygen. It is used in a wide variety of different ways. And, without it, there would be no way for any living organization to survive…

That’s right, I’m talking about WATER!!

So, what do we know about water? Well, it’s a clear liquid; it’s a combination of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen; and it has no real taste or odor (unless you live in California, New York or New Jersey, where it ends up tasting like metal pipe and ocean sewage – am I right? Am I right??)

Water has a lot of uses – so many, in fact, that without it this planet wouldn’t survive more than ONE day, if that! Here are just a few things water’s used for:

  • Drinking
  • Plant food
  • Washing things
  • Growing things
  • Fighting fires
  • Cleaning
  • Cooking
  • Balloon fights
  • Ice/Freezing things
  • Clearing up the atmosphere from dust via rain
  • Making it possible for fish and other water creatures to live
  • Generating electricity
  • A prime ingredient in every beverage on earth
  • Flushing human waste away from our living places
  • Filling in swimming pools (what else could they be filled with? Anyone wanna try swimming around in dirt? Rock beds? Wood?)
  • Turning sand into clay
  • Farming
  • Cooling metals when turning them into steel
  • Important element in many daily items (shampoo, lotions, chemicals, drugs, etc.)
  • Transportation (i.e. boats, ferry’s)
  • Helping the body produce saliva & prevent lip chapping

And this is just the tip of the iceberg – which, ironically enough, you also need water for to produce!

Ah, water… now THAT’S something to be thankful for!
