Dolphins

Cool fact for the day. Did you know the ocean is more gel than liquid? Closer study shows your average drop of ocean water to be a sugar colloid of long-chain polysaccharides, which have trapped water within them; that’s even on top of a list of microorganisms from plankton to bacteria to viruses. So maybe we should call it the world’s largest Jell-O rather than “the drink.”

Guess it’s a lot easier to see life originating in the ocean when it’s viewed as a teeming gel of sugars and proteins, rather than just seeing it as the world’s biggest assembly of hydrogen, oxygen, and sodium chloride.
