That glass of water in your hand is dinosaur pee, apparently.
Not like it's unfiltered, but a science YouTube video posted this week raises the interesting tidbit that, since dinosaurs were around for 186 million years and water molecules are everlasting, it's a foregone conclusion that every drop of water on the planet passed through the prehistoric species once upon a time.
"While most of the water molecules in your 8 ounce glass have never been drunk by another human, almost every single molecule has been drunk by a dinosaur," the video by CuriousMinds says.
"So drink up and enjoy your dinosaur pee."
It's not the first time this theory has come about.
Charles Fishman, the author of The Big Thirst: The Secret Life and Turbulent Future of Water, told Marketplace Morning Report that, "All the water on earth has been through a dinosaur kidney. Every bottle of Evian you drink from is Tyrannosaurus Rex pee.
"All the water on earth has been here for 4.5 billion years. It's all toilet-to-tap at some level."
According to a YouTube science video, every drop of water on the planet has passed through a prehistoric species. So, that glass of water in your hand is apparently dinosaur pee.
