rivers and seas

Postby HTDS » Thu Dec 05, 2002 5:22 pm

Im really confused...

how come rivers and seas arnt called the same thing?
cos a sea is formed by rivers....thats how they get there water....
so how come a river isnt called a sea? or a sea isnt called a river?
and also does the sea run out rivers as well? or do rivers just run water INTO the sea....and if the sea doesnt run out from rivers....where does all the water go? cos surely the sun can evaporate the whole sea....
Is lake taupo and ocean? its big enough....
and ALSO....where does all the salt come from? wouldnt it be diluted now to just about nothing cos all rivers are fresh water, not salt....and the river water is what the seas made out of....

surely theres some logical answers to all this, but Im in a random mood and I dont understand it all......arghhhhh SO confusing!

not really, because that was made by 2 things, reproducing etc etc....

the river and the sea dont fuck to have an ocean do they....

I dont know, its just something Ive never really understood, and I never learnt it all at school cos we hadnt covered that subject before I moved, the worlds so....soo....weird and confusing, i think I'll just keep being confused

Wha?

Postby Matt » Thu Dec 05, 2002 5:47 pm

They've got different names because they're different. That's how nomenclature works - hell, sometimes identical things have two different names. But just think for a sec - one is saltwater, one is freshwater...some creatures can only survive in one or the other. That's one good reason for giving them different names.

The only difference between a puddle and a pool is volume...and it's arbitrary.

Oh, I give up...

How about this:
Rivers are not called seas because they're both technically oceans called "Nigel".
Seas DO put out rivers, but only in foreign countries.
All the salt in seawater is poured by pixies in the Arctic Circle from big packets they buy at New World.
Lake Taupo used to be called Ocean Taupo, but it was regarded as having too many tourists around it to be called an Ocean, but it is hoping to get some more votes from the Water Bodies Naming Commission to become Big Puddle Taupo.
The Sun CAN evaporate the whole sea, but it has been told to give the water back now and again so yuppies can fill their Pump bottles.

i was thinking the same thing about pisstake??

shit. well seas are part of the ocean (or the 'sea' = ocean). seas are salt water, rivers are fresh generally (estuaries?). lakes are inland, seas are not (i think. hah)

hmm maybe u should listen in science at school. im pretty sure i knew the difference between the sea and a river when i was about 6-7? maybe younger.

hmm i'm pretty sure there is more salt than fresh water as a large proportion of the earth is covered by oceans!

matt maybe u should think abt the dumbest post ever for the punkas awards. :roll:

good lord brain....melting..... are you suffering from some sort of mental lapse?

I mean if the question was the difference in the naming of rivers, streams, creeks, brooks and other minor tributaries then I could understand, but rivers and seas are different.

Compare the Waikato River with the Caspian Sea - completely different. It's like comparing Earth with a meteor.

Actually, i'm with Matt - why do we bother? :roll:

oi, I dont even think it was a dumb post!

and I just wanted to know, cos it all seems so weird and shit....
matt kinda explained it, I wanna go meet the pixies one day, maybe I can be a salt pourer if I dont go back to school 8)

hmmm, but yeah....I still wonder about the whole salt bit....I read a story once and a ship sunk and it was carrying a salt grinder, hence why the sea is salt, maybe I should just go with that myth....

are you suffering from some sort of mental lapse?


I think it runs in the family... :roll:

WoW

Maybe we should move this thread away from the idiocy of river / sea nomenclature and instead steer it towards what the hell happened to you guys today to put you in such volatile sardonic moods, Matt, Ost and idontmatter :rocol:

lol, an ex-boyfriend of mine was a white-water rafting guide and stupid americans would constantly be asking "if we follow this river will we end up where we started?" :roll:


Mind you, I did almost get kicked out of the car in Taupo the other weekend when I asked if there were sharks in Lake Taupo.....

what this post needs is the comedic genius of MisfitKid89....


....or at least OST is Homo. I'll see if I can rustle him up.


What's more frightening is that in a test conducted by the United States Board Of Education, 85% of students quizzed, could not find Canada on an (un-named, not that it matters) globe of the world.
