Minecraft water is not wet seeing as it is virtual! xD
Water is wet I could explain but I don't want to spend the next day explaining why
could you go a bit further bout this?
Water is wet, agreed with @Heptic
I’m not really sure. I just love the guy in the video’s exaggeration.
Water is not wet because it makes things wet and the definition of being wet is being covered in liquid
Liquid is not covered in liquid itself because it is called “Water,” not “Waters.”
I know that is probably a terrible explanation but yeah, water is not wet itself
Alright, let me cover this. Something being wet is the act of water or any other form of liquid, making contact and successfully allowing surface tension to draw the liquid to the solid. This is also why you get water that stays on you, even when you hold it upside down. Water itself cannot be wet because it breaks the one rule that requires something to be wet, a solid.
As such, there's many paths we can take with thinking about water in Minecraft. While acting like a liquid, water's data still acts like any other block, but just has a few special effects. If we're thinking in relation to the real world, then yes, Minecraft water being a representer of real world water would still be not wet. If we're talking about in game code, the gray area begins to appear. It could be just considered a special solid, or a gel of nature. We also have no physical way of determining the matter scale of such items, as they are imaginary, so you could argue that it could also be wet, due to there being no real liquid to wetten something with.
I guess the answer you come up with really depends on everyone individual perceptions of how the laws of the world could be interpreted.
