Why do random socks go missing?
It doesn’t matter how careful you are to always keep your socks together in pairs – inevitably you will find yourself hanging up the washing one day, get to the bottom of the basket, and be left with odd socks whose match cannot be found.
How old is Wakko from the Animaniacs? The song ‘Hello Nurse’ tells us that Wakko is “only seven”, but the internet claims the writers said he wasn’t really seven when he sung the song.
On his blog, the show’s creator Tom Ruegger shows a scene that got missed out of the original show as it was considered inappropriate. It does however prove that there’s no way Wakko was intended to be “only seven” as the song might claim. Read the rest of this entry »
Is it possible to use time travel to create an entire army of clones and take over the world?
For clarity of method, here’s the question in full:
After watching the documentary ‘Looper’ at the cinema recently it got me thinking…
When time travel is invented, if I was to transport myself 5 minutes back in time I would meet myself from 5 minutes ago. So there are now 2 Mes. If the Me from 5 minutes ago waited for 5 minutes like before, then transported himself back in time 5 minutes… There would now be 3 Mes.
So using this time cycle is it possible to create an whole army of 1000′s of Mes which I could use to take over the world?
Yes, this is possible. However, it’s not as fantastic an idea as it may seem at first. Let’s use some diagrams to wrap our heads around this.
Do ants poop?
Ants are so tiny, and their little segmented bodies joined together by next-to-nothing. It’s hard to imagine digestive tracts running down through the length of an ant. But surely everything that lives must eat and excrete – that’s at the core definition of life. However, there’s more to an ant than meets the eye.
What would happen if you ate a cloud?
In case you missed it, I’ve already documented the makeup of clouds when describing how they harvest helium. The TL;DR version is that helium rises from natural gas in the earth and forms clouds by supporting the water in the atmosphere, so clouds are mostly helium, water, and a little unbound hydrogen and oxygen. We can work out what effect it would have to eat this. Read the rest of this entry »
If power stations are there to generate heat, why do they have cooling towers?
We’ve all seen power stations… Big hulking beasts on the landscape spewing out fumes from the cooling towers. But if the point of them is to produce energy, why waste it by cooling everything down? Read the rest of this entry »
Special Feature: Introducing celebrity guest, @horse_ebooks!
Well, the first two questions are fairly straightforward. You can buy a device to test your batteries here, and specific gravity is explained by Wikipedia.
As for the golf cart, though, this is a rather subjective question. There are pros and cons.
