Are There 5 Oceans or 6?

Got into a discussion with my sister about how many oceans there are in the world. I thought there were 6; Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic, Antarctic and the Mediterranean (sea, I know but figured it still counted. My sister insisted that the Mediterranean is not counted in the oceans list. Well, we looked it up and sure enough there are only 5 oceans in the world.  The Mediterranean is a sea and technically the Antarctic Ocean is now known as the Southern Ocean. gallbladder stones

So, that’s the end of that debate. It might never come up again, but at least I know the answer now.
