What I'm Seeing Now

We All Know The Globe We Live On Is Mostly Full Of Water

We all know the globe we live on is mostly full of water.  It's said to be about 72% full of water.  And this water has been on this globe for some time!  Basic geography.

It's true!  And we are similar.  Our human bodies kind of mimic the globe we live on, being, as they are, about 72% full of water. 

The globe provides a living place for everything living on and in it, including us.  It is vibrantly and diversely populated!

The globe in this photo is not 72% full of water.

But it has a lot of water in it!

This is a globe in the basement ceiling of the world around it.

It's geographic location is just under the fridge in the kitchen directly above.

There is no evidence of leaking water anywhere in the kitchen.

There is no evidence of previous or current leaking under the fridge, in front of the fridge, or in the island cabinet in front of the fridge.

This water has been in this globe for some time, as things are living in it!  Microscopic things, living in their own little world.  The globe is providing a living place for everything living on and in it.

Oh, in the kitchen, there was a serious repair on the wall behind the fridge, where the water service line for the ice maker is located.  Hmmm...

Could that have had something to do with the water world created inside the globe?  I think this water has been inside this globe for some time!  It is vibrantly and diversely populated! 

I'll bet it tastes like chicken!

My recommendation:  sometimes the unexplained can maybe be explained, yet remain basically unexplained.  But it's good to have consistency around us!  Even if it appears to be an inconsistency.

The mysterious case of the water in the globe.  Another case solved by Sherlock Markanich!

James - as tempted as I was to taste it, I decided to let the globe inhabitants alone.

Gabe - maybe, maybe not!  But I think so...

Good morning Jay,

A laboratory would probably have a problem figuring out the conglomeration of micro-organisms.

Make yourself a great day.

One basic of gravity is that water flows down.  I would guess the water in the globe came through the opening in the ceiling above. 

As for the organisms, every inch on every inch and in every inch contains millions.  Why not in the water in the globe?

Finally, some things simply ARE.

Hmmmm, if it were clear and had some goldfish swimming in it, I would be all over it!

Wayne - if they even noticed it!

Raymond - would be an interesting petri-tray study!

Lenn - this is about 4' from the fridge, and obviously the lowest point of the ceiling below!  And I agree, there are kingdoms inside of kingdoms inside of kingdoms!

Belize Boy Fred - hard to dip your line in there!

Goldfish Jay... I have never fished for goldfish! That would be a sweet fixture!

I misunderstood what you meant until just now Fred!
