@Paperduck ~ I think it is the fact that it would take only 5 seconds for ALL of the hydrogen contained in all the worlds oceans to escape into space that is the amazing part.

I don't get the oxygen one. Is he saying if all the oxygen gas in the atmosphere disappeared, water would break down? no it wouldn`t... why would it? or does he mean all oxygen including the ones bound in water molecules disappeared for 5 seconds, oceans would lose hydrogen to space? Duh... Is that a revelation to anyone?

Well, I knew all of these... Robert A Wilson discussed some of them at length in his books... Still time well spent *smiles*
@Gerry1: I can tell you from both experience and discussion with others: Smiling and acting happy does make depressed people "feel a bit better" it's true! But like a caffeine high? When it wears off (and it quickly does) you feel a LOT worse than before...
