    Fun Friday Fact

    ...courtesy of Neil DeGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist:

    There are more molecules of water in a glass of water than there are glasses of water in all the world's oceans. Therefore, it is statistically true that some of the same water molecules you drink have passed through the kidneys of such people as Abe Lincoln, Socrates, Genghis Khan, etc.

    I've heard the same thing about breathing air. Something like every breath you take, you breathe the same air through your lungs as Julius Caesar/every other major historical figure. Kinda cool if you think about it.

    Thank you so much for this fact. I love those useless facts and then telling my wife so she thinks I am uber-nerd.

    But water molecules can be created and destroyed as well so it's not necessarily the exact same water molecules.

    But the chance that some of the molecules are Lincoln's et. al, is a virtual certainty.
