Why is the sky blue?
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.
Something tells me I used to know that, actually....
Probably, I learned it in 6th grade.  I figure you were probably told somewhere down the line.
I think the year I learned about photosynthesis was also one of the years I was in a fundamentalist Christian school, and consequently I may have ended up blocking out a lot of the things I learned there. (Which is really too bad, because they were okay in the academic department.)

Are there wild cows?
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.

No one likes photosynthesis.  Plants neither

To give us balance.

More to the point, why do women have to shave more of themselves, period, when we're naturally less hairy than men to begin with?

why do men consider themselves hot and more "masculine" if they're really hairy... i mean, come on, that is really gross if they're overly hairy.

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.)

A page in a novel I was reading was all in braile.  No, it wasn't raised either.

SOS means: Safe Our Souls and it is indeed used to ask for help...
It also has to do with the Morse code, i think.  Apparently those letters are very simple and easy to repeat so the signal doesn't get confused.

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.

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!


P.S. If you spin an Oriental person around really fast, do they become Disoriented? (sorry, a pun on words of sorts)

Love always jessica

Okay, I've done this twice in the Evolution thread, but since it looks like you haven't been in there yet, I'll let it slide: Man did NOT evolve from monkeys and apes; monkeys and apes and humans ALL evolved from some other, earlier species that bears some similarities to all three.

I guess because all ATMS machines are made by the same company, so there's not much point in the making one without braille just for the drive through ones.
