If a thread is derailed by an argument, please finish it off here where no one will have to see it.
  
I think you will find that most people don't think their arguments are pointless.
  
Then why don't you find someone to ague about that with, and I have the perfect place to do it!
  
Seems as if they already have, lol
  
f(x) = f(x) is an argument with no points
  
No, f(x) = f(x) has points everywhere!
  
f(x) = x/0
f(x) = sqrt(-x)
f(x) = ♾

Unless f(x) is undefined. Undefined cannot equal undefined.

f(x) = f(x) V x : f(x) E C.

(I can't do mathematical symbols, so you'll just have to parse it yourself).
  
This is rather pointless.

What is the C? I think I've got all the rest of it.

is lava wet???

get some sleep when you feel the need to, titanlord.
or after about... 15 minutes?
  
lava is the opposite of wet
  
Lava doesn't contain water, therefore, lava is not wet.

I see this coming, so I'll just say it: Water is wet. Do not argue otherwise.
  
Not the wettest thing though

Water is not wet.

The statement that something is wet implies it can be dry. yes, you can dehydrate water and get dry "water", but that shit isn't water. Water can't be dry, therefore, it can't be wet.

Also, if you got oil on your shirt, for example, you'd call the shirt wet, even though it doesn't contain water, therefore your argument for lava not being wet is invalid.
  
Wouldn't the shirt be described as oily rather than as wet? Those are two distinct sensations.

Are there liquids other than water which can be (or make other things) wet?
  
I mean I'm not a liquid but...
  
I'm primarily liquid.

All you need to know
Is you were born of water
You are made of water
You are merely water water water

C is the set of all complex numbers.

"f(x) = f(x) for all x such that f(x) exists on the complex plane."

If f(x) does not exist on the complex plane, then f(x) is undefined, and f(x) ≠ f(x)

Ice is pretty dry, when it's not melting. :)
  
How can water not be wet?

How I see it is, for something to be wet, is has to come in contact with water, one way or another. And water is constantly in contact with water. Therefore, water is wet.
  
Water is not wet for the same reason fire is not burning. Water wets, fire burns. Water is not wet and fire is not burning.
  
You are not arguing about whether water is wet. You are arguing about the definition of wet.
