    it was pointed out to me by a friend that it is impossible to own water.
    You can control it to some degree, dam it's flow, channel it into places where gravity will allow, pump it upward and put it in bottles, but drink a bottle of that water and see how long you can keep it.

    Water is the universal solvent. given enough time, it can dissolve almost anything. Given motion by wind or gravity, it will crush and erode the hardest minerals and rust ferrous metals. We cannot make it our own.

    Our own bodies are mostly water, we can't live without it.
    We cannot own water because water owns us.

    I started with nothing and still have most of it left. - Seasick Steve
