Ted Brewer once had a comment on that subject. He said in effect that God had chosen a perfect viscosity for water - any thinner and seas would get so huge that we couldn't sail on it and any thicker and we wouldn't be able to move through it.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
