Who decided on the order of the alphabet?

^ And, why is it that order?

I always thought it was in the order that the letters are used most...but that's probably wrong!

- 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.

Good thread 

How does a cd actually play a song?

good thread indeed

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.

Why do dogs like to smell eachother's butts?

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 Well, ok that last part was just kidding, but the first part i truly heard once!

-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..

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

Harry Potter is about WIZARDS who go to SCHOOL. Whereas the X-Men are MUTANTS who go to an ACADEMY. In contrast, the little Lord of the Thingy dudes are totally unschooled. A bunch of dropouts. All they do is run around in the woods, singing songs and eating special bread.

Wow, Nijntje! You really know your stuff. I always wondered why it was called baby blue, too! Awesome. Thanks.

Why are they called 'apartments' when they are stuck together?

Why do traditional (not scientific) calculators only let you enter eight digits?

Because they are stuck together, but from that big mass of houses every little house is apart. wich is an apartment. easy

And i'm very very sure there are wild cows... i never looked for them though... but if you want to check my words i'd better take a long long holiday finding out.. because i believe they won't be easy to find

oh i feel really really smart, i know *not* the problem with human brains is that they only remember the things they want to remember. I don't want to remember crap but only interesting things... but my brain wants to remember *not useful* things and forget the things i should know for my tests at school... But interesting things like biology *at least that is what i find interesting* is luckely what my brain finds interesting too

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?

I don't know what S.O.S. stands for, but if I actually took the time to look it up on the internet I'm sure I could figure it out.

I know, if someone is a Douglas Adams fan, can answer this one (a big inside joke...and Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy movie is coming soon someday! woohoo!) What is the answer to life, the universe, and everyhing?

Love always jessica
