His ego is big enough to be a sovereign nation. Complete with war powers.

Water is a solvent, so it has the same circulatory/averaging effect on a lot of variables. For example it also allows different elements and chemicals to meet each other more often and to reach more spots on a body's surface.

And it does most of the job of muffling earthquakes. Which means that the Moon, for example, has moonquakes that last a lot longer than you'd expect for the same power of quake in an Earthquake.

This is just hydro-bigotry. Isn't it more likely that we run into Boltzman brains than anything we recognize as alive? Why do we keep assuming that life needs to eat, to respire, to do anything but mutely ponder its own existence free of any concerns that plague organisms like us? There could be trillions of aliens around us every day, completely oblivious to us and our yearning to meet their acquaintances.

The real ttragedy is that scientists ignore the high probability of invisible life we can't detect.

That was one of the best scenes I've ever watched in a movie.  Incredibly tense.

Well, we better not go looking. That would be a violation of the Benthic Treaties, and the BLUE HADES will launch a retaliative strike.

So what you're suggesting is that we move our limited resources from understanding and detecting the forms of life that we know are real to trying to find forms of life that may or may not exist in forms we don't know how to look for. Got it, have fun with that.

That is an incredible leap of faith the missus took in giving him the helmet collar.  No guarantee she's be coming back after drowning.
