    I was checking my son Jacob's social studies homework and found out there is another ocean-instead of the 4 I learned about in school now there's 5-the Southern Ocean. How do you just create another ocean?!

    Here's a site of them all and a few facts.

    huh! Learn something new every day. I can't believe I'm a decade late, though!! I only learned the four in school.

    I think it's a plot to force the schools to buy new books--LOL! BTW--Wouldn't it make more sense to name their new ocean Antarctic Ocean or change the name of the Arctic Ocean to Northern Ocean? Obviously this society needs more work to do if they have to add another ocean and then give it a name that doesn't really relate to any of the others. Maybe that's what their next big announcement will be.

    I learned about Artic, Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific oceans. The Southern Ocean is news to me-I'm a little slow on the uptake apparently-I googled it and it was named in 2000.

    Well if they can take away a whole planet (Pluto) they can give us another ocean. :P
