How many gallons of water for Noah's Ark myth?

Has anyone ever calculated how many gallons of water it would take to increase the sea level so that it covered Mt. Everest? Besides the fact that the water couldn't drain into anything, I would think the number would be quite funny.

I remember watching the

I remember watching the History channel were they did a show about Noah's flood story, and they said that the Bible didn't say anything about the flood being global. Basically, they spent the whole show explaining how the flood in Noah's story was actually a local flood.

I don't know. I'll try to look for the videos on google or youtube.

The better question is where

The better question is where did all that water go? Melt the ice caps and take every once of humidity out of the air and you still won't flood everything.
