    people waste time on stupid research

    means that u not meant to be fish and it s time for you to go get dry,
    your skin is made up with 75% water,so it get soggy and wrinkly because the dead skin on your hand have feet absorb water and expand faster than live skin,and will eventually start to break in the water after some time, and so will the rest o your body
