Water is wet Water is wet because you can turn water into water vapor which my fellow people is dry. Then you can turn that vapor wet again by either making that vapor come in contact with an object or by possibly freezing that vapor into ice which is dry, until it starts to melt and by then the melting process that basically warms up the ice makes the melt and turn wet again. You can try this at home. Just get some ice and place it in your hand, the ice might be cold but guess what it will be dry. Then the ice will begin to melt and turn wet again and guess what ice is just dry water. This is why water is wet. Also the H2O molecules that make water well, water are in everything. Because if it wasn't, then we would have alot of fires going around. Why do you think wood takes so long to burn instead of automatically turning into ash? Its because of the water molecules in the wood and the heat it is at. This is why some trees can give you fresh water with a spile.
