    Sometimes I see a cloud and try to envision the water the cloud contains condensed. I want to envision this accurately, so, community scientists, would the cloud contain enough to fill a swimming pool? More or less? I'm talking like your average cumulus cloud on a sunny day. Sorry if that's not enough information.

    Couldn't you google this?

    I'd say that since clouds vary dramatically in size etc... it would be fairly hard to get a fixed result on this.

      Why should I when I can ask someone here, all the while igniting a potentially interesting conversation? Conversations like this are how people are able to consult google for things in the first place. I was hoping not only to spark a curiosity and wonder of an amazing feat such as clouds here, on this forum, but to get a broad response on the topic as a whole. In my dreams that could happen. Commence with the boring "lol google" answers.

      I actually live with someone who could probably answer this to some extent - it sounds right up his alley with the kinda work he does. If not then I'll take a stab at it if I can. But I can tell you now that it'd depend on the density of the cloud, it's volume, and the volume of the swimming pool - all of which are absurdly variable. But I'll ask him a bit later and get back to ya because I'm interested in this one too now, haha.

      By the way - I'm alright with this thread, for anyone who thinks it should just be googled and closed or whatever. I don't know exactly what sort of discussion's gonna form here but something interesting at least will hopefully come out of it and I imagine we'd all learn something. I wanna give this a shot and see how it does.

      I've always wanted to live on a cloud...

      And that's an interesting question, actually. I'd assume it could though. Clouds are massive. Don't take my word for it! Also, the thread title = awesome
