In a car, you can mess with the radio and pick the stations if you're in the front.  In a bus, you have more privacy from the driver in the back.
That makes sense, that really wasn't an unawnsered question...

-If you were going pee and all of a sudden you died, would you still be peeing after you were dead or would you stop all of a sudden?

*had this explained to me once... errr it wasn't fun and was def. more graphic*
no, you would 'keep going" and when you die your muscles relax, so errr yeah, everything kinda goes out.

Haha, thanks Emmi. When my cat died, er..."everything" went. I didn't know if it happened for people, too.

-Why don't any other species menstruate?
-When were pads/tampons invented?

Sorry, my questions have been quite weird lately.


Quote from: Glinda on April 02, 2005, 10:44:46 pm   

-What are bowling balls made out of?

Woohoo, I can answer my own question! (Thank you, Google)

"The ball itself evolved. The balls had been made out of wood until the early 1900s then the Brunswick Company came along and made a ball out of a substance called "Evertrue", which promoted a strange "rubber-like" quality. The balls continued to evolve and Brunswick is still a large bowling ball manufacturer."

Source: http://hypertextbook.com/facts/2002/ZacharyCampbell.shtml

And Timmy tried to convince me it was made out of plastic. I showed him that, and he said "So basically it's plastic." Isn't he Mr. Smarty now, lol.

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.

Closed captions are the words that appear on the bottom of your television screen that display dialogue as you're watching. Like subtitles for people who can't hear. I dunno why they call them that though. *shrug*

Important question: Is there ANYTHING that will wash out charcoal?

Why can't those kids give that Silly Rabbit some Trix?

Why is "abbreviation" such a long word?

How do "Do Not Walk on the Grass" signs get there?

Why is it that when adults have multiple personalities it's schizophrenia, but when a child has imaginary friends it's cute?

That makes sense, that really wasn't an unawnsered question...

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.

Love always jessica

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.

Plus, on school buses, they are always crowded (mine were anyway) and so no one could see the people at the back (apart from those stood close) and so, they could smoke.
*Shakes head in disgust*

So yeah, the "cool" people.

Why can't you move your toes as easily/freely as you can move your fingers?

Where does the saying "mind your own beeswax" come from?

EDIT: OK, I did a search for it...


Quote:
This came from the days when smallpox was a regular disfigurement. Fine ladies would fill in the pocks with beeswax. However when the weather was very warm the wax might melt.

Yes, but not very strongly of it.
