Is Water Wet?

The decades-old debate has been going on to answer the question; is water wet?

by BookBolts, March 17, 2021.

In a RC Times survey, 73.3% of people said that water is wet. When you put even one water molecule on a sheet of paper, that paper is wet. So, say you have an 8 oz. glass of water. In that glass of water there are TONS of water molecules. All of the water molecules are attached to each other. Using that logic, if there is even 1 water molecule on something it is wet, you could say that since one molecule is surrounded by others, then it is wet. Therefore, “water is wet,” says one student. Seems reasonable, right? Well, it depends on what you mean by wet. Wetness is the form of being covered with water, or any liquid that can stick to solids. But if we define wet as a sensation that is caused by coming in contact with water, then water is definitely wet to us. Also, if you define wet as being liquid or made of moisture, then water is definitely wet, but let’s see the other point of view.

Water saturates a napkin to make it wet.

Let’s go back to the definition of wet. Wetness is having the ability to stick to solid surfaces. Water is not a solid, therefore, from this point of view, water is not wet. The word wet is defined as, “Covered with, or saturated with liquid (such as water).” Using this definition, we will attempt to prove why water cannot be wet. ... Since the word wet is defined as being saturated with a substance, it is impossible for water to be wet,” says one eighth grader.

So where is this going? Well, both opinions are correct, based on what definition of wet you use. Now you know the other point of view!

Why There is NO WAY to get Free Robux

By: Winter Doe, January 26, 2021.

If you’re a Roblox fan, you know that Robux will let you buy special abilities and upgrades for your avatar. Have you ever seen links to websites that say you can get free Robux with just one click? Well those are scams, these sites can hack your account. How?
These websites typically ask for your username and password, which is a dangerous idea. If you give them your username and password they can steal all your items in your favorite games, steal your email and IP address, steal your limiteds, and if you’ve purchased
Robux before, they can even get your parents credit card information. Roblox even states that there is no way to get free robux. Despite how tempting it is to use these sites to get free Robux, don’t risk your safety.

How to Handle Quarantine... tips and tricks!

by M, October 6, 2020

Quarantine is hard on everyone. It's tough not being able to see your fellow humans, but there is at least some good that comes from it. So here's a list of things to get you through quarantine

  1. Get into that one hobby you were too cowardly/lazy to try. You may have to bother your parents to get stuff. If you're painting make sure you have a proper sealant. You don't want to curl up on the floor crying when your project starts falling apart! (You can't spell painting without pain.)

  2. Try to find the closest possible thing to human interaction. Whether it's online games or just texting. You have to stop being a social hermit crab.

  3. Try not to watch the news. We already know this year is horrible, there's no need to have another reason to lose all hope.

  4. Cry

  5. Try a silly "inspirational find yourself" thing, I don’t know, I just paint on dinomasks and I’m having the time of my life.

  6. DIY... DI WHY DO YOU DO THIS!

  7. Do that thing you said you would do but never got to it, there's plenty of time for it now.

  8. Read Reedy Creek Times (100% recommend)

  9. ORGANIZE!!

  10. Spend time with your pet.

  11. Write an article about what to do during quarantine, and realize you've already gone insane.

  12. Pat the moose.

  13. Watch cute animal videos or whatever makes you happy, to be able cope with the fact everything is horrible right now.

  14. Read

  15. Naurto-run across the globe and then realized you broke quarantine and get a mandatory quarantine issued by the government. (Wear the cone of shame.)
