Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Are there any other salt water lakes in the world besides Utah's Salt Lake? Why is it salty?
- The Little Mermaid

A: Dear Mermaid,
Uh, how 'bout the Dead Sea? There are other smaller salt lakes in the world found in arid climates that have rivers flowing into them but no rivers flowing out of them. The water goes in, it evaporates, and leaves all the salt behind. Over a few millennia, it starts to make a big difference.
