Adventures of a Thought

I thought to myself — it’s weird there are no ocean fungi.  There are lots of animals in the ocean — fish and whales and such — and many plants in the ocean — sea-weeds.  But there seem to be no fungi in the ocean.  Is it, I wondered, because salt kills fungi?  Is it just an inexplicable fact?

So I asked twitter why there are no fungi in the ocean and I received the following reply — a list of the species of higher ocean fungi:

    If you were playing Ocean Fungus Scrabble, you’d be hoping for Hs and Cs and not Us because there are actually more Cs and Hs than Us here and obviously they’re both worth 4 points whereas U is only 1. As and Rs would also be very valuable since although they’re only 1 point each, 25% of the letters in Ocean Fungi are As or Rs, as compared with 15% of the letters in the bag. I haven’t run the stats on how many of these words are longer than 7 letters actually. It might be hard just to get a starting rack.
