10^-8 is really not the same as the actual distance... Electrostatic repulsion is strongest between 0 and 1 femtometres (10^-15m) and the graph to show this is asmyptotic, meaning you get infinitely close to an object, but the repulsion just gets stronger. fyi: 1x10^-15m is about the radius of a proton.

Explain finger prints then

Fingerprint have unique pattern.
When given a force, those pattern will indented perfectly on a surface, mainly solid since the atom vibrates highly with little displacement.
That, with what hanyouvale said, gives the definition of "fingerprints".

the indents in your finger still push slightly further away from your body then the rest of your finger? or maybe its something to do with the oils on your fingers. idk

Knowing trivial bits of information makes you better than people who may not know it, because **** logic.

MFW people try to explain why this is wrong because they can feel stuff and see stuff touching.

What if we all are like King Midas but since we actually don't touch anything it doesnt work

Also if we never touch anything explain how a needle goes in our arms? the force of electrons alone wouldnt pierce our skin,

The needle repels the atoms around it. When you cut something, the atoms are simply being pushed apart. You do not destroy atoms, they just rearrange themselves.

In short, needles make the atoms in your body rearrange themselves.

What would happen if you were to actually touch something? Would your skin just be sensitive to the material? Would nothing happen?

If you cant touch anything, how would you see ******* streaks on your hand if you touch dog ****. And if someone wwas shaking your hand totally encasing it, then thte atoms in your hand would repel theirs from all sides so it would have to be pushing theirs or vibrating yours, but that doesnt happen. (like when you try to connect 2 magnets. Also When you bleed if you touch the blood to anything, it will show up on that. And friction requires 2 objects to rub together, and if we never touch anything we couldnt create friction and obviously we do when we drag our feets on the carpets and touch the doornob

You should not forget chemical bonds. cohesion, adhesion, gravity fields, are somewhat connected in making those ******* stain on your hand.

Gravity is pretty good, at keeping stuff together and gravity affects everything in the universe, i would imagine that the force repelling is less than the gravity's force so the objects stays but is not completely repelled. That is what i was thinking anyway.

So if I go outside right now and grab a piece of dog **** why would it still be all over my hands?

It wouldn't be on your hands but hovering slightly above them. the dog **** molecules would be attracted to your hand but still be a little bit above them and never actually touch.
