Oh please. Not again another attempt to deflect into a discussion of
language semantics when i am clearly not talking about the word ocean
but about the abstract physical and language independent concept of the
world ocean as the main reservoir of the global water cycle.
The distinction between a river and the world ocean is real and a
fundamental aspect of our scientific understanding of the geography of
this planet. That digital maps have - based on the precedent set by
Google - almost universally ignored this fact does not change it.
