My class watches a current events news show on Fridays. This particular segment dealt with the disaster in Japan. The reporter showed how a particular aircraft carrier was using water from the sea, through a sprinkler system, to hose down the ship. This happened next:

Mr. H: Well, they're in the ocean, so they probably suck it up from there.
7th Grade Student: But what do they do if the suck up all the water?
Mr. H: What?
