With all of the tumbleweeds in the desert, couldn't we attach water bottles to them in case someone gets lost?

Or maybe gene mod them (when we advance far enough) so that the have a water reservoir in the center.

You never know, the life it saves may be yours!

       You forgot to provide a link, but I'm willing to guess it's the one I put up. I'd like to see them painted green or red, or even glow in the dark, for easier spotting in the vast desert.[+].

       Ahhhh! Thanks for the link. Yep! It's the right one!

       wouldn't heavy water bottles inhibit tumbling?

       [po], heavy water bottles might also be used to develop nuclear weapons...

       Ah, and insidiously enough, they are their own delivery system!

       My luck mine would come with a message inside.

       instead of message in a bottle... its a message in a tumbleweed! so much more practical for those who are landlocked... and cheaper too.

       An oversized tumbleweed dispenser with water-filled tumbleweeds could be used for putting out desert fires.

       [phundug] you'd need to make those water balloons (ok, a water balloon like container)... otherwise the water would fall right our

       GMO tumbleweeds with brandy filled centers might eventually replace St Bernard dogs.

       I don't think I recall this. It's a classic halfbaked unidea. +
