Water is a chemical compound with the chemical formula H
2O. A water molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms that are connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquid at standard ambient temperature and pressure, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, ice, and gaseous state, steam (water vapor).

Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface.[1] It is vital for all known forms of life. On Earth, 96.5% of the planet's water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of solid and liquid water particles suspended in air), and precipitation.[2][3] Only 2.5% of the Earth's water is freshwater, and 98.8% of that water is in ice and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth's freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products.[2]

Water on Earth moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation and transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Evaporation and transpiration contribute to the precipitation over land. Water used in the production of a good or service is known as virtual water.

Safe drinking water is essential to humans and other lifeforms even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients. Access to safe drinking water has improved over the last decades in almost every part of the world, but approximately one billion people still lack access to safe water and over 2.5 billion lack access to adequate sanitation.[4] There is a clear correlation between access to safe water and gross domestic product per capita.[5] However, some observers have estimated that by 2025 more than half of the world population will be facing water-based vulnerability.[6] A report, issued in November 2009, suggests that by 2030, in some developing regions of the world, water demand will exceed supply by 50%.[7] Water plays an important role in the world economy, as it functions as a solvent for a wide variety of chemical substances and facilitates industrial cooling and transportation. Approximately 70% of the fresh water used by humans goes to agriculture.[8]. It tends to be wetter than non-water things

Incorrect.
"The equivalent proverb in German (originally: Blut ist dicker als Wasser), first appeared in the medieval German beast epic Reinhart Fuchs (c. 1180 'Reynard the Fox') by Heinrich der Glîchezære, whose words in English read, 'Kin-blood is not spoilt by water.'" -Wikipedia

I don't know why, but I think that sentence sounds incredibly awesome.
And for me it is very difficult to say. But still awesome.

This is the article that most people take this "fact" from. Cracked, while entertaining, should be taken with a grain of salt because even though there are source links, many of those sources are not verifiable. The link in the section of the article in question is this one.

The article being referenced sounds nice, but it has no original source for the different version than a vague sounding "older phrase". As much as I agree with the supposedly original version (family members can be assholes; you don't owe them **** simply because you share genetics), it really has no point of origin before just recently (if someone feels like digging further feel free to let me know, I would enjoy being 100% on this).

They're two distinct sayings. To assume that the one mentioned in the post inspired the more popular modern saying is ridiculous. Just because two sayings have similar themes doesn't mean they have anything to do with each other.

100 billion people in the history of the world. You can't expect everyone to agree. There are bound to be conflicting worldviews.

There are those who have had great friends. There are those who have had great families. Just because some edgy tumblr teenager hates their families doesn't mean you should follow suit and forget all familial bonds.
