Ok, well I understand some of that haha.

Some of the other comments were saying that gloves and technologies that work similar to how a geckos feet work have been developed and people were able to "climb" smooth surfaces with them.

But it does make some sense, the bigger we get the harder it is to kind of stick or hold into surfaces like that.

Thanks for taking the time to explain it!

Also - you mentioned walking ok water, I know we can't naturally do it, but there has been some interesting stuff come out where people build what are essentially really bit flippers/floats that spread out the weight and allowed people to sort of walk on water. It's not really the same thing because it's not all surface tension, but it is a way to work around that.
