Hehe ... yeah cool. My 15 minutes. I like the number 6. Seems like an important number. 12 is cool too. Sometimes I amuse myself by dreaming of us using base-6 or base-12 instead of base-10. And hexagons man, how cool are they? Especially for tile based games.

Depends on composition and how you define "more", either by number or by mass. If by number then glass is usually 60% to 67% oxygen atoms. If by number then glass usually ranges between 45% to 55% oxygen (oxygen being lighter than the metals usually involved). So yeah it's pretty much at least half oxygen. Kinda cool that when you look at glass you are looking at a kind of crystallized oxygen.

Water is fascinating to me. Starring at oceans of liquid oxygen and hydrogen, I can't help but feel some mystical connection with the substance. So important it is to our past, present, and future.

I once saw clouds of carbon dioxide raining down drops of carbon dioxide upon carbon dioxide bergs afloat in a carbon dioxide sea. That was a strange sight indeed.
