|I have seen
leaking faucets and leaking roofs many times. It is
still amusing and interesting to see how the drops of
water form, slowly grow, and finally fall.
Obviously, there is
some sort of stickiness between the water molecules and
the leaking object that keeps the water drops hanging
Later in a camping
trip I saw mosquitoes that land on the water. I could
see that their weight has actually pushed the water
surface inward. I wondered why they didn't get wet and
why their legs didn't go under the water.
