Too much water in the oceans. Too little water in the deserts.
the thought of swimming in the ocean (or, naturally occurring bodies of water in general) freaks me out because of microorganisms, and to a lesser extent, hostile/dangerous sea creatures like jellyfish, so i'd rather not.
this might be only tangentially related, but people who say we should be exploring the deep ocean instead of space get on my nerves. i don't care about the abominations living 100,000 miles under the sea, nor do i think funneling money into making equipment that can withstand all the pressure so that we can take dark, blurry pictures of these freaks of nature is a good use of time or resources.
>Nature shows and even video games really make underwater areas seem so cool to explore, like an alien world.
paradoxically, considering what i just said about the deep ocean, i agree, i love underwater areas in games (though funnily enough i hate beach areas in games (and anime) because i think they're uninteresting)
it's unlikely that sea creatures are intelligent
I used to vacation on the Great Lakes and swim there. They're basically in-land seas. I liked swimming around a lot, and for the most part the lakes were fairly calm near the shore. Rivers freak me out though. There's too many stories both historical and recent of people swimming in rivers and drowning due to the river currents for me to feel safe in anything stronger than a shallow creek.
Ever see any Michigan Fresh Water penguins?
I'm going to bury all the ocean-hating kissuers neck deep in the sand
