this is also interesting from another sense: if we assume that you're remembering right and that aliens do actually call us 'water people', it
suggests that they're not composed of nearly as much water as we are...food for thought I guess, especially if you flip through some of the earlier
threads on alien biology (which I suggest you do...just google ATS with that phrase to see what's 'known' about grey biology).
as a comment, the reason earth life (including humans) are mostly water is because life on earth originated in the sea (so far as we know, with lots
of evidence pointing to that and not much contraindicating that hypothesis) and thus most of earth biology's basis biochemical toolkit works best --
really, at all -- in a saltwater environment. the land animals more or less carry around mini oceans with them: your bodily fluids are, in some sense,
a little replica of a sealike saltwater environment to keep your basic bodily functions working.
thus, continuing our thought experiment a bit, if aliens are really calling us water people it suggests that the development of life on their
planet(s) took a radically different path than on ours, which would certainly be interesting. I'll wait for comments from the expert ufologists on
this forum to see if there's any further verification of this 'water people' stuff...potentially a very nifty find for its implications.
