    Shit like this is moronic. The word "wet" only means anything in the context of human experience, so of course humans can feel wet, because we created the concept of wetness.
    Just because a bunch of gay nerds redefine 'wet' to mean some super-specific technical thing that only makes sense in their own insular nerdspace doesn't mean you can run around foisting horrible "truths" on people without explaining anything, especially when the shit you're talking about has literally zero effect on anyone's daily life beyond the unpleasant effect of homosexuals trying to depress them with irrelevant information.

    You can tell something apart then you can feel it tho, thats the definition of feeling.
    Saying you can't feel wetness due to a very very specific scenario not normally found in nature is like saying you can't see because there are times when the only light that reaches you is UV ir IR.
    And saying thats not actually feeling wetness is like saying you can't really hear a frog croak, just the sound the air made in reaction to the croak.

          It's difficult to tell if your clothes are fully dried out of the dryer. I would just get a towel perfectly damp and warm to where it is impossible to tell how damp it is then show you it is quite damp with a moisture detector.

          It's also very trivial to heat water to a precise temperature using an inexpensive sous vide machine...

            I have never had this issue. I find it really easy to tell based on how the fabric moves, along with the extra weight the water creates.
            But I WAS wrong in that I thought anon was talking about putting water on someone's skin, not having them test whether something else is damp or dry.
            >It's also very trivial to heat water to a precise temperature

                That's the whole point is that it wouldn't be difficult to create a scenario that would show you that you aren't feeling literal wetness. There are sort of context clues that we use to without thinking to know if something is wet, but you could be fooled because you don't actually feel wetness.

                Another one is if you get your socks wet and use a blow dryer to dry them off quickly. You need to check very carefully if they are actually perfectly dry.

                Wow, you have fully debased yourself by spewing verbal, dialectical, and rhetorical drivel akin to the infantile musings of someone who believes they can feel wetness. Truly and undeniably sad.

                I am simply stating that I could trick most ,if not all, people into believing that a damp towel is dry validating OP's claim that humans cannot really feel wetness. It is a validation of his assertion, while you are merely crumpling up an astute and truthful fact and tossing it into your trashcan. Happily furthering your ignorant and myopic worldview, and understanding of what it truly means to be human.

                Please take a step back and think deeply on your extreme digression whilst being challenged on your thoughts, beliefs, and worldviews. This can be a growing experience for you.

                >humans cannot really feel wetness
                "Really" is a weasel word because you know humans can in all realistic situations, determine the presence of water. And again you lie because you bring up water in cloth when OP never mentions that, referring only to skin.
                >what it truly means to be human
                What it means is efficiency. There is no reaon to have an entirely discrete set of sensors when in all realistic situations water can be detected.
                You are going into levels of autism over this that humans have no ability to detect.

                Aside from not actually feeling wetness, I believe the ability to recognize our own misteaks, and make a concerted effort to change and grow is a large part of what it means to be human. If we rely solely on instinct and emotion what are we but beasts?

    What a load of horseshit. Just because I don't have "humidity receptors" or "hygroreceptors" in my skin doesn't mean I can't feel wetness. I can feel the texture of the water or water vapour on my skin and that's all that's needed to know that I'm wet or feel wetness. I cab easily tell when something is dry or wet based on smell, pressure, temperature, sight, touch sound, etc. I DON’T NEED HYGRORECEPTORS. And that isnt "sour grapes" either because I know one of you gays will say this. Probably an insect hand typing that. It's just a simple fact I don't need them.

    Only some invertebrates have hygroreceptors anyways. So it's not like we're missing out on something that other mammals have.

              if you're talking about between your fingers, sure, but what they're talking about is that I can drizzle water on your skin and if it's perfectly matched to your skin's temp and there's no wind, you won't notice it unless you notice the water impacting your skin.

                Your body doesn't accurately determine temperature, just how cold or hot the environment is in relation to your current temperature, so you cannot tell when something is hot. Your brain processes what your rods and cones detect so you don't really see.
