    It's such an annoying question because there is ALWAYS a huge argument over it, especially since my class is SUPER competitive and we always have to be right. But I really want to know people's opinions and reasons behind why they think water is or isn't wet.

    Ok THAT is awesome. Thanks.
    Now if only I could learn that whole thing to prove everyone who says it's not wet, wrong.

    I don't think water is wet.
    Well, because when you use the word wet, you use it to describe how there is moisture in another object or space, like the cloth is wet. The word wet is inherently not meant to be used with water. You could argue that since water has moisture in it, it is wet, but it's a circular argument, like it itself is the characteristic of itself, like 1 is a prime number because it has factors of 1 and itself, which is 1.

    Seriously? Why are people still so obsessed with this? Let it go. I've seen so many posts about this.

    You pour water on the table, the table is wet.
    You pour water on the bed, the bed is wet.
    You pour water on the spoon, the spoon is wet.

    It only follows that if you pour water on water, the water is wet. The water is wet, case closed.

    Even though literally speaking water is wet, it's pretty weird to describe a liquid as 'wet'.

    If you freeze water and make an ice cube, the ice cube can still be considered water, just in its solid state. If you dip the ice cube in water, the ice cube is wet. Since an ice cube is water, and the ice cube is wet, water is wet. XD
