I’m a 24 years old music school graduate, currently living in San Francisco. Born in Wisconsin, lived in Beijing for 9 years of my childhood, have an unhealthy obsession of taking pictures of every moment of my life and putting them online (for some kind of subconscious validation), developing an insatiable appetite for performing and being successful with music, don't have an easy time keeping emotions to myself, I believe everyone is beautiful, boys with pretty eyes an innocent faces really get me, good food is a total weakness of mine, and I cry a lot. I care too much about things but sometimes have trouble showing it. As a result, I’m an asshole, but I think my blog is decent and hopefully you'll think so too. Just be sure you can handle someone else's opinions. Don't take me too seriously. Hit Counter

How Much Water is On Earth?

In this illustration, the blue ball represents the volume of all the water on earth, relative to the size of the earth. The tiny speck to the right of the blue ball represents Earth’s fresh water. CREDIT: David Gallo/WHOI 

If Earth was the size of a basketball, all of its water would fit into a ping pong ball.
How much water is that? It’s roughly 326 million cubic miles (1.332 billion cubic kilometers), according to a recent study from the U.S. Geological Survey. Some 72 percent of Earth is covered in water, but 97 percent of that is salty ocean water and not suitable for drinking.
“There’s not a lot of water on Earth at all,” said David Gallo, an oceanographer at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Massachusetts.

Scary…

Just finished a photo shoot for Fash2on Tees.
Have you ever had water thrown on you outside at 8am in 22°F temperatures?
