if i say "I want water" then water would be the object of the sentence.
clever teaser.

Jun 22, 2007

I think that was very easy...considering the fact that i have heard it before, that would make sense! lol!
dsheboAus
Jun 22, 2007

I agree that water isn't an object, but I think that if you thought hard enough and eventually came up with H2O you would have said that anyway. What I'm saying is that evryone's making a big deal over something that probably didn't even effect your answer anyway. If they said something like "which liquid?" it would have been too obvious. I thought it was a very good and creative teaser!

Finally... a rebus I could solve (and within 3 seconds). Then again, I placed out of the chemistry requirement of MIT, so it may be my scientific education and mindset that made this rebus particularly easy for me.

I enjoyed it... why can't H20 be an object? Ever heard of an ice cube? Or a noun within a sentence? I think it would be ashame to simply give away the answer in the teaser. I can think of several other possible teasers for this, such as:
"Flowing Letters"
"Alphabet Tap"
"Sea of Letters"
"Drink Up"
"Fish Tank"
etc.

Good rebus...
I think david blaine once posted this on his website as well as the O T T F F S S E N one....

this is a VERY well known rebus, BUT water itself is not a substance though an ice cube is...
acthatsme91Adj*
Jun 22, 2007

That is stupid H2O is not an object, it is a substance or compound. It would have been clever if it had been reworded.

I think it was really good. I also don't think it matters if water is an object or a substance or whatever. You could get the same answer anyway.

An oldie but a goodie! I had forgotten this one!! I guess it's not as old as the hills, but I do remember reading it in a joke book I had in the early 80's, and my parents hated that book... heh heh!

Great! But is water an object?
doeheadAus*

Old,old old,old.

I don't get all the fuss over the word object for water. In my dictionary "object" has many definitions, the first one being "something material that may be perceived by the senses." I can see, feel, and taste water. One can also hear it running (in the shower, brooke, waterfall, etc.).A substance is defined as matter of particular or definite chemical composition, which also fits "water." To say that water is a substance but not an object is like saying water is a liquid, or water is a compound--but that doesn't mean it is not an object.
I liked this teaser, but found all the the negative remarks annoying.

Also, my Thesaurus (Roget's) lists "thing" as a synonym for object and "something" for substance.

The website is awesome and its content is the perfect brain awakener.. I LOVE IT and more people need to be grateful for how this modern technology has enabled intenational sharing of knowledge thanks a bunch Braingle and all the wonderful contributors

Whether old or worded wrong, according to all the "know it alls," it was a cute teaser. I never read it before and the wording did not bother me. I just enjoyed the teaser. Thanks for posting!

It is an old one, and I guess if you've never seen it before it is cute. I liked it the first time I saw it too, but it is usually told as a joke about a smart-aleck kid who answers that way on a test when asked "what is the chemical symbol for water?"
When asked why he answered that way he replies "You told us it was H to O".
cutebugAus*
Jun 22, 2013

GOOD ONE IF YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT, BUT IT IS SO OLD IT COLLECTS SOCIAL SECURITY.
gaylewolfAus*
Jun 22, 2013

Thanks, Habs. I think this is much cuter, more clever, and I liked it much better told as a joke. Otherwise, the letters HIJKLMNO mean nothing to me. The fact that it's old doesn't bother me at all. It's bound to be new to people new to braingle. The best thing about it being old is reading the comments of disgruntled people who are miffed because they have seen it before!

I love Braingle for any stimulation I would not normally have gotten, and without stress-I enjoyed that it was easy-and it was fun!
