The body of liquid is next to the construction site of the sandcastle. Its existence is first confirmed as Cueball dips his foot in it on Frame 16. Cueball and Megan decided to swim in it from Frame 170 to Frame 175, which ended as Megan got something in her mouth.

The liquid Edit

The body of liquid is a hypersaline lake. This was implied after the location of the comic was revealed in frame 2901.

Before this revelation, there were arguments over what the liquid is. Although most agree on water, few insist it's other substances, such as coffee.

Level Edit

The liquid level has changed over Time
