Here, I'd like to discuss a very controversial question, which has been debated many times over recently: Is water wet?
By definition, wet is an adjective, used to refer to something that is "covered or saturated with water or another liquid". This is the traditional definition that most people use. Now, in order for water to be wet, it must be covered or filled with...water! Now, that's quite confusing, so let's look at this on the molecular level. Each water molecule consists of two hydrogens and one oxygen. Each one is polar, with the negative side with the oxygen and the positive side with the hydrogens. And these molecules are held together with hydrogen bonds, with four hydrogen bonds for each molecule. Now let's look at the definition of covered: "put something such as a cloth or lid on top of or in front of (something) in order to protect or conceal it". For now, let's disregard the cloth or lid part and the protect and conceal part, and focus on "to put something on top of or in front of". The water molecules are certainly on top of or in front of each other, and as such the water is in fact covering the water. Thus, technically, water is wet. If that's not enough to convince you, let's look at the definition for saturated: "holding as much water or moisture as can be absorbed; thoroughly soaked". Now to find out if water itself is saturated with water, we must focus on what "holding" means in this context. It means "to keep or sustain in a specified position". Now, since the water molecules keep each other in a specific position through their hydrogen bonds, water technically is holding itself, and, as such, is also saturated. It fulfills both parts of the definition for wet, and, as such, is definitively, without a doubt, wet.
Today, I would once again like to discuss a very controversial question: What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Now the definition for "come" I'll be using is "occur", so the question is really asking: "What occurred first, the chicken or the egg?" Now obviously the egg part is referring to a chicken egg, so there shall be no loopholes there. A chicken is "a domestic fowl kept for its eggs or meat, especially a young one", with fowl meaning "a gallinaceous bird kept chiefly for its eggs and flesh" and gallinaceous meaning "relating to birds of an order". To sum up, a chicken is a type of domesticated bird we like to eat. Now chickens are said to be descended from the red and grey junglefowls, with red junglefowls and the domesticated chicken part of the same species, while grey junglefowls are classified as a different species. It is generally thought that domesticated chickens were the result of interbreeding between red and grey junglefowls. While naturally found in generally the same area, these two different species look similar, but have a number of different gene combinations and phenotypical traits. As such, any egg that laid either a red or grey junglefowl must not be factored in to this question. However, when the breeding caused the first egg of the domesticated chicken species to be laid, there was no live chicken at the time. Therefore, the egg conclusively came before the chicken.
