Interesting Question of the Day – 26 November 2018

Imagine the earth was a globe 1 foot across.

If you were thirsty, what container could you fill with all of the water on earth?  A beer jug, a pint glass, a schooner glass, a shot glass, or none of the above?

The first new player to comment on the website with the correct answer wins a free drink at their next iQ Trivia show.

    (Having double checked the question)

    It would be a fairly miserly pour into a shot glass, I would think. It may be 70% of the surface, but the surface is pretty shallow.

    In any case, it wouldn’t help if you were thirsty – it would be a shot of brine.

    (Of course, the oceans being briny didn’t prevent Thor having a go at drinking them all.)

      Double checking is good. Especially given your history!

      And yes, you would wind up with just a briny half a shot glass worth of water.

    A foot across, none of the above. It amounts to about 0.6 fluid ounces.

    (Well, maybe that’s a shot at a really, really, REALLY stingy bar?)
