What?
boats float, metal does not: surface area.

Ice always floats, regardless of its form. It floats on water, because it is less dense than water. Believe me.
or because it is comparably dense and solid enough to have a surface area, as well as the surface tension of water.

When water freezes it expands. That is why pipes burst in winter. Thus ice has a larger volume for the same mass of water. Larger volume and same mass equals lower density.
and you do not see a relationship between surface area and density?

There is no relationship between surface area and density. Two objects may have the same mass and density but different surface areas. Consider a cube of modelling putty, if that is reshaped into a sphere the volume and density remain constant but the surface area decreases.

This thread was fantastically entertaining!

Ski is truly the hero the FES deserves.

Here are two examples of dinosaurs exhibiting vestigial boat building instincts:

He's all outta gum.

there is no reason to think the harnesses are complex. they might be no more than common vines. a simple diagram would be:


Bringing back the diagram.

Someone should make a poll. Dinosaur Boat Theory vs Dinosaur Tourist Theory.
Here. This diagram says it all.

The amazing thing is, we went through all this just a few posts back. I even explained why ice is less dense than water. It just doesn't seem to have sunk in to JRowe's brain.

He lets nothing sink into his brain. His brain is the source of all knowledge.

I thought it was the source of all density? A black hole so dense no rational thought can escape.
Turkish joke. A prisoner goes to the jail's library to borrow a book. The librarian says: "We don't have this book, but we have its author"

It is the best thing on the internet.
