Water is wet, it's impossible for it to be dry. Water is wet. It is not dry. if it were dry, it would be all evaporated.

We're autistic so that means we like facts, we shouldn't deny water is wet. Don't pretend to use critical thinking to deny it's wet and coming up with reasons why it's not wet. Water is wet. :wink:

Not on planet Venus!

Its 900 degree F, on the surface of Venus. It never gets bellow the boiling point of water. So water is never wet on Venus. But lead flows like water flows here on Earth.

So on Venus lead is wet, and water is not wet.

So...THERE! 8)

I maintain that if you fill a cup with dry ice, you will have a cup of dry water after it melts.

But is it truly wet?

Or for a slightly unusual approach to the "water is not wet" theory:

This should explain both sides of the debate...

I got a packet of powdered water once.

I wasn't sure what to add to it.

It's called snow.

Wine can be dry.

From a scientific perspective, water is wet only in its liquid and gaseous states (as a gas, it will turn liquid upon contact with other matter), but not in its solid state (Ice). If it is then cut into a cube or made into tea, it subsequently becomes a rapper, but it only becomes wet in the latter case.

Someone with a better grasp of physics than me may check if water is wet in a plasma state, but please conduct such experiments far away from flammable sources (and more importantly, far away from me).

In fact, it may be the case that the vast majority of water in the universe is *not* wet, since it may predominantly exist in the form of ice due to the average low temperate of 2.73 degrees Kelvin.

I expect water to dissociate in plasma state, so it wouldn't even really be water - rather a mix of oxygen and hydrogen ions and electrons.

So ice isn't frozen water then?

Or ice is wet.

But I thought there was such a thing as 'dry ice'?

Well, dry ice is carbon dioxide, not water.

Carbon dioxide can be wet (liquid), but not at atmospheric pressure.

Wit can be dry, btw, but wet cannot be dry.
