Sometimes people say that there are no silly questions. I wonder. . .
Here's a thought I had recently. How much would the water level drop at the coast if all the ships in all the oceans were lifted out of the water? Every time a ship is built and put in the water, a good deal of water is displaced. In fact, that is how they often measure ship size by the weight of the water they would displace, or that would spill out of a completely filled container.
Here's another question. How low was it before ships were ever put in the water? How about one more. If a ship is put into the Indian Ocean, would that have even the slightest effect on the Pacific ocean?
Sometimes a guy just wanders through the day with silly thoughts and silly questions.
