Dear living peeps,This is the Dead Sea[attachment=1230]It's like well salty !!I've had the pleasure of floating in it and I can tell ewe that it makes ewe...well buoyant !!...In fact, I believe it is also the lowest (above ground) point below sea level on the planet....which is nice !.....i've also been told that (pending being attached to a lot of weights) it's impossible to drown in it because ewe simply can't stay beneath the surface !!....Confirmation of this would be nice.I would like to know how salty it is ?..if you removed all the salt how much volume would there be ?...how did it become so salty ?
Maybe I can go and not worry about sinking.. I should be able to keep the head above water eh?
what did he suggest??? did I miss it?
Sparse rainfall + traces of dissolved minerals in water flowing into the Dead Sea + no outlet + high evaporation = lots of salt (around 31% if I remember correctly)
Actually, you can drown in 2 inches of water. You cannot submerge your whole body, but you can still immerse you face in it, and so drown.
