Going off of the stupid of argument if water is wet, my dumb friends concluded that if water is not wet, that means its dry.?

 Is there a scientific explanation on why water isn't wet but not dry?

    The absence of Hydrogen and Oxygen on a surface could explain dryness.

    One must discern a particular level of "wetness" via chemical experimentation.

    You should research this for quite some time before responding to your "friends". 

    AND...word to the wise! Listen to them more...they know something that you don't ;-)

    3 letter words are the worst!

    Define 'wet', 'man', god', etc. and you immediately have issues.

    What we need is a long word for wet like "surfaceinstantsoakingattribute" or "soakingmacsoakface" then we would know what we're talking about.

    BEWARE 3 LETTER WORDS!!!

      The word "wet" already has a specific scientific definition.
      There is no problem using it.

    Why would there be a scientific explanation why something is true, when it isn't?

    Water is wet.  That is one of its fundamental properties, and why it's considered a "universal solvent."
