  1. Why water? said the Sage. Why air? said the Fish. Why either of you? said the Stone. Why all of you? said the Cosmos. "Why not? What's water but the generated soul?" said nothing, nowhere.

    Besides, it wouldn't have been much fun for JC to have had to supply the party wine from, say, goat's milk or sweaty legionnaire's oil which, as we all know, curdle horribly in the heat.

  3. good question. As a chemist i knew once said, "I have become disillusioned with water. Acetone is a much better solvent." Perhaps it's just that life isn't perfect, so we have to put up with water.

  5. Because otherwise Ribena would be horrid and the Olympic springboard diving competition would be carnage.

    Without water, we wouldn't have most of our greatest landscape painters. D'eau. Oh. D'oh. Everything is three or less degrees of separation from Homer Simpson. Think about it.
