To really gain some insight into how impressive water is, use a 3D interactive simulation of water molecules condensing into a hydrogen-bonded droplet. Clicking on the controls at the bottom of the window allows you to rotate and zoom in and out. You can also use your mouse to drag and rotate the 3D model of the water atoms.

If that seems intriguing, you might also want to check out a similar simulation of intermolecular hydrogen bonds in liquid water and in ice. Both of these engaging simulations and others are available by way of Molecular Visualization Resources (all free and open source) collected by Eric Martz.
