Could a planet made completely of water exist? - Worldbuilding Stack Exchange
To be clear what the properties of this water planet should be:

The planet is completely made out of water (that is, any non-water substance makes up a negligible amount of its mass). There may be a non-water atmosphere above, but there's no stone or metal center; the water goes down to the center.
Most or all of the water on the planet's surface is liquid (there may be polar ice caps, but they shall cover less than half of the planet).
The planet is held together by its own gravitation.
Is such a planet possible? And if so, could there be a plausible mechanism how it could be created naturally?

Donny the Drone
The world’s first sentient machine goes on stage to accept a prestigious “Person of the Year” award as an auditorium of humans are confronted with his emotional and controversial story.

Donny the Drone (voiced by Guy Pearce) has just been named the “Person of the Year” by World Times magazine. Donny takes the stage to dramatically tell his story of how he came to have real human emotions. His anecdotes are portrayed with highlights from his world-spanning adventures that have shaped who he has become. As the ceremony goes on, Donny’s vision becomes grander, more ambitious and potentially concerning. Will Donny be able to freely pursue his dream of helping all over the world—or will mankind’s darker, paranoid instincts intervene before Donny achieves ultimate, worldwide control.

Why So Many Men Hate the Last Jedi But Can’t Agree on Why
SPOILERS: "I don’t think every human who disliked The Last Jedi is an evil, evil misogynist. I do think that we have so deeply internalized sexist narrative tropes that we see them as 'correct' and 'good filmmaking' while seeing their absence as 'flaws.'"

My Hero, Luke Skywalker
SPOILERS: “It is a beautiful fantasy and, I thought, a particularly resonant message for the anxious and depressed about what you can be capable of, the kind of peace you may be able to find if you dig down deep enough and push yourself emotionally.”
