Water Water Everywhere

Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.

Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, Coleridge.

There’s water in them-thar hills! Or, maybe I should say asteroids! Yes, the clever folks down and over at the NASA Infared Telescope Facility have added another good find to their impressive list of findings.

So we’ve got water in asteroids.

Water on Mars.

Water on the Moon.

Maybe we can get around to making a couple of pure doses of homeopathic remedy. Maybe… monkshood – a poisonous plant that supposedly cures… Brontophobia, in homeopathy.

Like cures like – except that actonitine, the active poison in monkshood, causes respiratory paralysis, not fear and sweating. So even if we do manage to find enough water in the solar system to actually make an effective homeopathic dose, maybe that one isn’t such a good test to try.
