  This mailing list reminds me of a Dilbert poster in my manager's

Except it would be physics and logic.

  Anyway, yes water causes drag but the fact is that massive things
are hard to move anywhere, in space, in water, in air, wherever - if
they have mass they have inertia and they're hard to move.  The more
massive they get, the harder it is to move them.
