The shirt is kind of the opposite of a wetsuit: it whets water away from the skin very effectively, and dries almost supernaturally fast.

A dry suit keeps water from even touching your skin, and is used in extremely cold water diving.

This is kind of a... whet-suit.

I think you mean "wick" when you use "whet."

Thank you O Wise One! The BBCodes are very nice indeed. That Hylas fellow certainly had an affinity for naiads. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hylas Looks as if Jim is about to have a classical moment... (Of course Mary is rather behind on the news at this point on the time-line.)

And, on an off-side note, I bet the water tastes quite tentacular too!

Hey I understand that. Tis possible. My tap water gets the taste to it now and then and you most definitely can tell. Tastes like stagnant water and algae smells, at least

Actually, I think there is a secret octopi back story that view is keeping under the surface.
