Myth... It touches water while it skips so I believe it will get wet where it bounces? :hmz:

Excellent Q, DP. :clap: It is true that the surface tension remains intact as the stone skips over it, but it will still pick up water molecules as it comes into contact with the water. So, myth.

Heksie.... Your IT :thumbs_up:

Like OWN said the surface tension will remain intact for long enough to let the stone bounce. Since no rock is perfectly smooth it will break the surface as it skips and will become a wet stone....

There is a good chance that cheetahs will eventually become extinct despite the most protracted conservation efforts. The reason for this is because almost all cheetahs alive in the world today share 99% of their genes with each other. Fact or Myth?
