Bilge Plug Importance

Guest
It is my humble opinion, as your curmudgeon Amphipoda,
that today's resurgence of the amphibious revolution
could not have happened without the ambiguous invention
of the lowly bilge plug. There are two primary reasons
for this. These reasons are both water; water outside
your Amphicar trying desperately to get in and water
inside your Amphicar successfully hitching a ride. The
absence of water, by default, no longer renders the bilge
plug a necessity. Consequently the bilge plug is of the
utmost importance whilst in the water, suffice to say
without one's plug the water wanting to get in your
Amphicar would rapidly achieve its goal and would then
happily commingle with the water already hitching a ride.
This could have disastrous results if not for a bilge
pump that adequately sucks the water now hitching a ride
and redistributes it back into the water desperately
wanting to get a ride. Assuming this cycle is constant
and steady state then the bilge plug becomes optional.
However, if an imbalance occurs in which the water wanting
a ride joins with the water already getting a ride and
that flow is greater than one's pump can pump... the
resultant will ultimately succumb to a lack of vehicular
buoyancy. So having your bilge plug in is the most
advisable course of action. This bilge plug importance
is not without a certain amount of irony too. For example
it is necessary to actually remove the plug whilst upon
dry land in order to get the water hitching a ride to
come out and yet none of the water wanting to get in can
get in even though the plug is out. However, if the land
you are on becomes full of water then it is again advisable
to keep your plug in to prevent more water that wants in
from getting in and thereby converting to water that is
hitching a ride. It is my hope this bilge plug recognition
posting has been tremendously helpful and may we all thank
our bilge plugs for keeping the vast majority of water
wanting a ride from commingling with the water already
hitching a ride.
