We have dry ice, but that ain't water {CO2).

Water comes in many shapes:

Rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow, ice, hail, vapors, clouds, rainbow.

If air contains less water, it would be drier.

Fresh water, because the salt in ocean water makes it less water and more something else.

It depends on how pure water is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical ... nductivity

Quote:
Electrical conductivity of water samples is used as an indicator of how salt-free, ion-free, or impurity-free the sample is; the purer the water, the lower the conductivity (the higher the resistivity).

No, I think it's actually dihydrogen monoxide. You know the dangers of that stuff, I take it . . .

Sorry . . . couldn't resist. :P :D

That stuff can kill you, in more ways than one.

Is water wet? Toss a bucket full over the head of your spouse and ask 'em... I think you'll have your answer (and maybe a visit to the Emergency Room).

Wet can be defined as consisting of, containing, covered with, or soaked with a liquid.
Water consists of liquid.
Therefore, water is wet.
