I think glass is more mystifying than water.

The things we take for granted eh

Because you can see through it

Atoms are mostly empty space. I find it harder to get my head around why we’re not clipping into stuff constantly.

That’s not a why, sorry

Ok

So that you can see through it.

Imagine if you could swim through anything see-through, and the only difference was relative resistance - so, for example, water would be the reference point, and you could swim through glass but it would take longer/more effort. Just imagine that.

I’m imagining the converse now. That anything not see through, you can’t swim through. And imagining going for a nice swim then some git chucks a load of dye into the water, now I’m stuck. Thanks shiggs

Is ice moving, then?

Just feel like it’s relevant to my username, is all.

I’m really enjoying imagining this, thanks!

It’s a good question to be fair. I don’t want to get all “fuckin’ magnets” but the existence of water is pretty amazing really
