Title: Life's Unanswered Questions...
Post by: ElijahLover713 on April 02, 2005, 10:44:46 pm

There are so many questions that I just DON'T know the answer to. They just stump me! Post yours here, maybe someone can answer them for you.

-What are bowling balls made out of?
-Why do letter grades in school skip E?
-How did curse words become curse words?
-If you had normal hearing and you put in a hearing aid, would you hear better?
-What the heck is styrofoam made out of?
-Why is pink considered a girl color?


I'm done for now. :) If anyone can answer them, please do! If you have some stumpers of your own, let us know so we can rack our brains for the answers.

-How did curse words become curse words?[/quote]
I've always wondered that too! I mean, ok... "offensive" actions/words change... so if it's not a constant, who is to say that it's a bad thing? Society? Use to, if you bit your thumb, it was a terrible thing... very offensive. Now you can freaking bite your thumb off, but if you put that pretty middle finger up in the air, it gets blurred out ::) I, personally, think that it's dumb... that's why i don't really care all that much about cussing.

Because a lot of girls wear it? ??? i dunno.

how is it that everyone in the world thinks their opinions are right? how can we ever know what is really right if no one is ever willing to admit they may be wrong?

how was slang invented?

how were phrases like "Dad burn it." and "Dad gum" come into existance?

i don't see why ppl have to be so inconsiderate of other ppls feelings. like i don't see what's so hard about being nice to one another.

some ppl just wake up in the morning with an attitude, and they just have their mind set to make other ppl upset. i can understand if their having a bad day, but ppl who are just naturally rude. i don't see why they can't modify that. it's healthier to be happy anyway ;)

Post by: PaintedLady on April 04, 2005, 09:23:10 am

- orange rhymes with porridge...well that's the best i can do :)

- royalty began in the beginning stages of society for mankind. when people were brutal and had to take what they wanted even from each other to survive. the men that were the strongest would become leaders in small groups that grew. they would promise to protect the weaker and they stuck together fending off other ruffians. eventually they became lords, and because of all their leadership skills they got the best of everything in the group. when they had children it seemed like the obvious next step for them to be treated the same way. so, royalty began from survival of the fittest.

-superheroes wear spandex to showcase their hot bods!

[/quote]

good thread indeed :D

how does a cd play a song? easy. or well actually not. a cd player contains a tiny laser. the laser sends laserbeams to the cd. the cd contains microscopic little holes. The holes reflect the laserbeams and the cdplayer reads them. What it reads, is getting switched into small electric pulses, wich are sent to the soundboxes. there the little cartons start shaking the air wich makes the sound. sound=moving 'pulsing' air.

because that is what the 'sex smell' comes from (you know, the smell that turns other dogs 'on' ;). and it is how they get to know each other better, by smelling their butts. kinda like, smell each others characters... wow, what if we could do that? I would often get my eyes on other guys' butts hehe:P easy :P Well, ok that last part was just kidding, but the first part i truly heard once!


Quote:
-Why is pink considered a girl color?


Easy. Because! once, a long long time ago ;)(i believe somewhere over the renaissence period, when girls were ought to be sweet and soft creatures) there was this colour, named baby-blue, wich was meant for babies in general. No matter if you were a boy or a girl. But at one moment, people thought: blue is a way to hard colour for girls. Girls are soft and sweet creatures, so they should have a soft and sweet colour of their own. And they chose pink. After a while, everybody was using pink for girls. Believe it or not, but this is a story i actually once heard. I don't know whether to believe it or not.. ::)

[quote] Who decided on the order of the alphabet?

^ And, why is it that order?[/quote]

The old greeks made the alphabet. they put the sounds of their words into a special order. The official greek alphabet starts like this: alpha (a), beta (b), -c i forgot-, delta (d) and so on and so on. that is also why the alphabet is called the alphabet. alpha- bet(a). But why they put it in this order? well, i don't know. maybe you should ask an ancient greek when you see one. You know, one of those who made the alphabet. ;) ;) ;) easy :P

[/quote]

Yeah, I was wondering that, because even if you pluck your eyebrows, it will still grow back. I think the length thing is because each hair has it's own growth cycle, the hair on your head is capable of growing to about 50cm before it falls out and starts again....but hairs like eyelashes don't need to be that long so they would have a shorter growth cycle.

There is something I have always wondered(though never enough to actually investigate it) and I have the feeling someone can actually answer this one. What does S.O.S. (as in the distress signal) stand for. I know it means "Help needed immediately" but what does the actual S.O.S stand for?

ahhh so many questions that will never be answered...LOVE? Well, i think it's just natural to be attracted to a mate...i mean, there's even instinctual "love", or mating...for procreation...animals pair up, and some of them only mate with one chosen partner for life!

Well, where does love come from? I could say religious but for some people that doesn't fit the bill. I think it just comes from someone caring so much about another person that they want to committ their lives to that person..just that undying feeling that you found someone so much like you, in your world, so understanding of the person YOU are....that attraction that you can't explain, that I don't think we necessarily want explained...well...that's an amazing thing isn't it?

Around here, when I was in Elementary school, we had a different grading system, and E stood for excellent. So, when you switch to the middle school grading, they skipped E, so kids can't be like, "Look mom, I got an excellent," when they're really failing the class.

Yes, but all cows in the Western Hemisphere were originally domesticated. Cows, horses, and other work animals were brought over by the european settlers, and they thrived so much here that we tend to think they've always been here. You might find wild cows in Asia.

I figure the shaving thing came about because women traditionally wear more skirts, therefore used to show more legs way back when. Because men wore long pants, they never needed to shave. (During the winter, I don't shave because I don't show my legs.)

Why is the sky blue?
[/quote]
Since I know you hate science, the color is due to visible light wavelengths. The light is refracted and crap, and blue is the lowest frequency, so it shows. ...Physics isn't my strength.
[/quote]

First, yes, there are links to S.O.S. and Morse code...

S is . . . (short short short)
O is - - - (long long long)
S is . . . (short short short)

Hope that helps...

AND

What I always learned is that the reason we see colours, any colour, is because of absorption and reflection.

When we see black, what we see is an object absorbing ALL colours of the rainbow spectrum. This is why darker objects are generally hotter...they absorb heat/light energy.

When we see white, what we see is the "abscence" of colour, in other words, the object is not absorbing ANY colour of the spectrum and is in reality reflecting that colour. That is why lighter objects are considered "cooler", because they do not absorb heat/light.

Thus, when you move from concrete to asphalt, there is a definite temperature change. The whiter concrete is cooler then the darker asphalt.

Finally, the sky is blue because the "atmosphere" absorbs all colours of the spectrum except that wavelength of blue..it is reflecting back to earth the colour blue...so in reality the sky is every colour BUT blue...the reason why we see blue is because it is reflected.

Sorry to go all scientific on you guys!

The braille on Drive through ATM is so that a blind person has the same opportunity to get cash out of their account as a sighted person. It is then possible for a person who is blind to have a sighted friend drive them through, with out them having to give their sighted friend their account information.

It also promotes a non-discriminatory environment (aka the bank would be sued to high heaven if they didn't put braille there, and a blind person/ lawyer looking for that kind of case came a cross it)

It dosen't really explain the why so much... but the use of depilatories (waxing and such) became highly popular in France during the 1700's among the female aristocracy. Sexuality was a very powerful (and the most easy to wield) tool for them to use to gain power. And bare legs etc. was sexy and, incidentally, much safer and generally less painful than body piercings.

"The ball itself evolved.

The balls continued to evolve and Brunswick is still a large bowling ball manufacturer."

Dogs menstruate, but it's a yearly thing. It's called 'being in heat'. We had to pin my dog up in the kitchen before we spayed her.

pads were invented in the 1920s. Tampons in the 40s or 50s.

I think it really has to do with "status"...when you're driving in a car, the front seat next to the passenger is reserved as a sort of "rite of passage"...it's usually where the other parent sits, so it holds some sort of "holy grail type sacredness" or something when you're little..i think it's subconscious but all the same, that seat is revered, and it's why kids bicker over it all the time...when I'm driving with my friends I always get "shotgun" though, because i have awful knees and they start hurting something awful if i have to stay cramped up in the back (i have a medical reason!!!)

Also, in the bus, the "status" thing is being in the back of the bus where kids can do things and get away with them more easily. Plus, traditionally, it's just where the older grades always manage to sit because they have the most "power" (hah!) then the younger grades who are forced to sit in the front of the bus....it's just all about the dynamics of "status" and who holds the power...at least that's my observation.

I think I can actually answer this one - yay! I heard this in a tavern at Williamsburg one year, during a New Year's festival or something: The story of Yankee Doodle is that he's kind of a poser, wants to be 'cool' like the other settlers or something. And the fashion at the time was very Italian posh - they named the style after the first Italian word they could think of, "Macaroni." Yankee Doodle wants to be cool and Macaroni savvy, but all he does is stick a feather in his hat - so it's not the same. It's rather silly, but that's what I heard. ;)
