When explaining molecules what is the difference between them being uneven, weird, polar and strange? For example what would a water molecule be?

Water is a "polar" molecule, meaning that there is an uneven distribution of electron density. Water has a partial negative charge near the oxygen atom due the unshared pairs of electrons, and partial positive charges near the hydrogen atoms.
