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.

How is that surprising? It's already a well-known fact that the water each of us drinks has already been drunk by someone or something else.

Oldest water in the world found in Ontario by U of T scientists

2 billion-year-old water won't kill you, but would taste 'absolutely disgusting,' U of T researcher says

A team of University of Toronto geoscientists has made a discovery that could lead to a new understanding of ancient life on Earth and other planets: two billion-year-old water, believed to be the oldest H2O ever found, in a mine in Timmins, Ont.

"We thought, 'Wow,'" said Oliver Warr, a postdoctoral researcher and leader of the team.

"Everything about the water is brand new. We are seeing signals in all isotopes that we've identified so far that we've never seen anywhere else."
