I would like clarification about the post by Tempus Fugit.

(a) Does Canada have special dry water?

(b) Or is it just a picture of what happens if you mix water ice and dry ice and add some heat?

P.S. Some of the arguments assert water is not wet because "wet" means there is water on something, and you can't put water on water. But, typically, water molecules are in groups so every molecule of water would have water on it--specifically all of the other molecules. But, if you had one, single molecule of water, all by itself, with no other water molecules around, would it be "wet"? (Clearly it would be lonely, unless it was an introvert.)

P.P.S. If this thread is going to get to sixteen pages it really should branch out. Otherwise it will quickly be the same arguments being repeated incessantly, and that would be all wet.

I posted it as a joke. Good to take a break from politics and do something a little fun.

How would you know? Are you a scientist or something?

Of course water is wet because if it was not wet it would be dry!

No, it will evaporate. Dry ice consists of carbon dioxide, not water.

A Dutch person would read the title as "water is law".

It just seems evaporated because the water is dry. It's basically the same scientific principle as evaporated milk minus the milk.

One can actually make a powder which "resembles" dry water by encapsulating water in a silica coating:

The water inside is still liquid, though, so it doesn't really count...

This belief that "water is wet" is just another example of the "hive mind" that is so omnipresent on this site.

I am tired of being mistreated by all of you sheeple who have been indoctrinated by the media into believing that water is wet. Just because I am the rare person who is an independent thinker, and who has the courage to question the dogma that water is wet is no reason to bully me!

Ive HAD it! I am LEAVING this site! :( :evil:

WOW! This thread is educational!

I've learned that WAWA is actually an acronym. (I already knew it was a good spot to pick up a quick snack.)

And if you get "wet" enough (three) you get music.

Still a little unclear on whether water is wet, or not. But every time I touch liquid water it seems to be wet, and if I add some solid water it seems pleasant to sip it on a hot day. And touching water that is a gas or plasma seems like a really bad idea.

(Is it sixteen pages, yet??? :huh: )

WE have had enough of your obvious agenda. Plus since you're from the temperate zone, you don't have any business talking about the wetness of water.

I see what you did there.
