water is wet
- A statement of the obvious.
2015, Katie Morris & GadChick, A Beginners Guide to Windows Surface, ISBN 1629174351:
- For example, the computer desktop is meant to suggest a physical desktop, and files that contain folders are meant to remind users of plain old filing systems. This may seem like we're telling you that water is wet, but the pre-GUI days involved a lot of command line typing.
Often used as a response when someone has stated something that is obvious.
