The Golden Shower.

Pancake Land and I were talking last night and she was telling me about this article she read a while back.

PL: “In the article they stated that all the water in the world has been here since forever, and that no new water is made or destroyed.”

SC: “Right. The water cycle via the Law Conservation of Matter. Sure, I can buy that no new water is made in nature, but I am sure they make it in labs.”

PL: “I’ll give you that. But the article had a different point it was trying to make.”

SC: “That’s why it is important that we remove the cap from plastic water bottles before throwing them away. Recycling is great and all, but sometimes you’ve just got to throw them away and when you do, remove the cap.”

PL: “Why is that important?”

SC: “Because a few drops of water are still in the bottle. By leaving the cap on, we trap them in the bottle, in a landfill, and they are removed from the water cycle.”

PL: “Oh. Weird.”

SC: “Sorry. What were saying about the article’s point?”

PL: “Oh, it was just saying that a little part of every drop of water has traveled the world for all time. You might water your garden with some water molecules that fell in Asia a while back, but the point of the story is that every time you drink a glass of water or take a shower, some of the water that you are using is the same water from the river Jordan that baptized Jesus.”

SC: “Wow. I guess by that logic you could say that every time you drink a glass of water or take a shower, that some of the water molecules that you are using were once in Jesus’s pee.”

PL: “Um… I guess.”

SC: “It is like Jesus is giving you a golden shower or peeing in your mouth.”

PL: “We are so incredibly different, it’s amazing.”

SC: “Yeah. You are amazing.”

PL: “Oh, Jesus.”

Yeah. This is what P.L. and I talk about. Well, when we’re bored, it’s what we talk about. Last night was the season premiere of Top Chef: D.C., and unfortunately we had to miss it. We would normally have watched it over at White Chocolate’s house, but last night was Ari Bari’s birthday, so W.C. recorded it and we’ll just watch it next week before the new episode comes on. So, that said, nobody tell me about it. I am avoiding most of the innernet until then, so as to not spoil it. Luckily, the Top Chef crowd is a little smaller than, say, the Lost crowd. If you weren’t keeping up on that show, you might as well not go online because everywhere you turned were spoilers. With TC it’s not so bad. I think I can probably wrangle up a photo of the new cheftestants. Hold on one second. Nope, still nothin’.

Well, I’ve got one more day of chemistry this week. I need to go review my notes before the morning quiz. Um, there was something else I was going to tell you, but it has slipped my mind. That’s what I get for not taking notes. I’ll let you know if I think of it. More soon. ~SC
