Baby Body Water

by Sam Mortimer

Various sources say how people need to drink about 2 litres of a day. Various others say how this is complete nonsense.

According to this, I need to drink about 3 l

itres day, since I’m a large physicist.

Humans are about 60% water, nearer 70% at infancy([1]). A baby is about 3.2kg at birth, on average, so contains 2.24kg of water, or, by the wonder of the metric system, 2.24 litres.

Thus, I need to consume around 1.3 babies a day to sustain my hydration needs.

Or if you’re out for a night and have 8 pints, that’s about 2 babies.

Just FYI.
