How many oceans are there? Four, you say? Wrong. (http://www.cia.gov/cia/publications/factbook/geos/oo.html)

I guess I missed the memo.

from wikipedia...

This global, interconnected body of salt water (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_water), called the World Ocean, is divided by the continents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continents) and archipelagos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archipelago) into the following five bodies, from the largest to the smallest: the Pacific Ocean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacific_Ocean), the Atlantic Ocean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Ocean), the Indian Ocean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Ocean), the Southern Ocean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Ocean), and the Arctic Ocean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctic_Ocean). Official boundaries are defined by the International Hydrographic Organization (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Hydrographic_Organization); the Southern Ocean, though long recognized in maritime tradition, was officially sanctioned only in 2000 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000), and is unique in being defined only by a line of latitude (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latitude) with no landmass boundaries.

i bet the number of oceans actually comes up in a discussion i'm in at a later date. then, as always, my friends will marvel at my vast knowledge of so called "useless facts". how can they be useless if they are actually used in a discussion to prove a point or something like that?
