uhhh yeah, mercury, bromine, hydrogen, oxygen, gallium, there are many liquids that are "waterless". Just look at the periodic table.

 

not to bash you, but if you were trying to be clever and ask a hypothetical question, you failed horribly.

Liquids as you would find them in earth's temperatures and conditions?

 

Mercury is probably one.

 

What about oil as it floats on water but I think it still contains some water?

 

Could molten lava be classed as a liquid?

it could be also called liquid plasma :P. but lava is a liquid. it becomes solid after it erupts.

 

edit:

uuuughh i don't think that oil can mix with water. putting oil in water is just a physical change. it doesn't change the oil itself(chemical chamge).

 

edit2: but then again, you can't really separate oil from water once it's already in there since...it's near impossible.

Mercury, sure. Some of the others are gases, and can be turned into liquids but most require pressure/very cold temperatures.

 

Mercury is the quickest example.

I'm afraid I'll have to agree.
