I remember reading an article about making ice very quickly:

Ice created in nanoseconds by Sandia's Z machine
Not expected at your local 7-Eleven anytime soon

I recently saw a show (maybe on Discovery) where they said there are huge reservoirs of water under the surface of the Earth, not just the oceans.

Actually, according to a Far Side cartoon by Gary Larson, the dinosaurs furtively smoked cigarettes, and that's why they died out.

I once had a doctor tell me the 8 glasses a day recommendation is overkill for the average person. He said drink enough to keep your urine a pale yellow color and you'll be fine.
