Now I'm going to have to keep some marbles next to the bath. For science!

Rubbish! Pruney fingers never work in the bath when I drop the soap.


Obviously we need thousands of test subjects sitting in bathtubs for extended periods while trying to grip a wide range of household objects and popular brands of soap. Just to be sure the effect isn’t confined to wet marbles and fishing weights.


You monster!


Damn, I was hoping that was finally settled. We're still agreed on opening eggs from the little end, right?


Great work, scientists! And yet, I still don't have my flying car or personal jet pack... *sulks*


Note the obligatory conjectural link to evolution that gives a requisite intellectual lustre to the project and forestalls any suggestion these scientists have lost their marbles.
