• Why do I like a guy, if I don't even think he's cute?

    Let me begin with the fateful words that every girl has spoken with rapture and smiles... SO THERE'S THIS GUY. I'm crushing on him pretty hard right now, but I can't even explain why.

    Let me begin with the fateful words that every girl has spoken with rapture and smiles... SO THERE'S THIS GUY. I'm crushing on him pretty hard right now, but I can't even explain why. He's not anything that I usually find attractive; he's not particularly funny, or smart, or even have a cool personality or anything. He's not even good-looking; we're talking acne and big nose and large ears here. And yet, I get the old butterflies in the tummy when he's around. Has anyone else had this experience, or known why they liked someone who was admittedly unattractive? I think I only like him because he's uber-manly; I've never seen him in anything but camo, and he's always doing rough sports, and has an epic-deep voice. Has anyone else out there crushed on someone JUST 'cause they were manly? (I'm not talking hot and manly guys - Chuck Norris and Thor don't count)

  • What is the proper categorical term for words like "bibliophile," "kleptomaniac," or "arachniphobe?"?

    Sorry, it's hard for me to explain. But what's the technical category for words like "pluviophile?" What do they fall under? It's not like there's a group of scientists formally referring to everyone according to their phobias, or manias; we do that as a culture. I'm looking for something more specific than... show more

It's not like there's a group of scientists formally referring to everyone according to their phobias, or manias; we do that as a culture. I'm looking for something more specific than "nouns." How would I say something like, "Those who study biology are called biologists," but in a more formal manner? Does any of that make sense?

I would rather have pygmies, but if they don't provide me with much I'll have to get a normal-sized breed. If you can answer all these questions, great. If not, that's okay too. Thank you!

  • Is smoking coffee in a pipe bad for you? Also...?

    So I bought a pipe at an antique store, but I think I can use it. I'm not old enough to buy tobacco, and I don't really like the smell, so could I smoke coffee? Also, is it addictive? Or bad for you? BQ: Do you think women can stylishly smoke pipes?

  • Where can I get a 100% flexible and fluffy hat?

    So I had two fluffy and flexy hats, but I had to get rid of them. They are made with a yarn that has pieces of string coming off it, if you know what I mean. It's very warm and comfy. It's....floofy. But I need a 100% one. I could make one, but I would rather buy it as I'm not to sure how to make one. If you know, please tell me!

Lyrics: "Here we bring new water from the well so clear, For to worship God with this happy New Year: [CHORUS] Sing levy dew, sing levy dew, the water and the wine, With seven bright gold wires, and bugles that do shine. Sing reign of Fair Maid with gold upon her toe, Open you the west door and turn the Old Year go; Sing reign of Fair Maid with gold upon her chin, Open you the east door and let the New Year in." Q#1: How is water worshiping God? Q#2: Who is the Fair Maid? The goddess Aurora? Q#3: What are the "seven bright gold wires"? Q#4: What bugles are they singing about? Q#5: Are there any pagan origins associated with this song? Q#6: Why does the Fair Maid have gold on randoms parts of her anatomy? Does it have to do with her identity? If you can answer all or any of these questions, I'd be much obliged. I already know the tradition of boys getting up in the wee hours to sprinkle water on people, so don't tell me that again, please, I've heard it a billion times on Google trying to find the answers to this question. Thanks!!

My other friend and I are like night and day, except we're both girls and both like to draw. I see her twice a week. Meanwhile, I have 2-5 guy friends that I see 2-3 times a week, and we all get along really well. I would say that they're my best friends, but we're opposite genders. So is it strange for a guy to be a girl's best friend and vice versa? BQ: Does "best friend"ship have to be mutual? just wondering.

But recently I heard that your friends can figure out if you like a guy better than you can, or sooner, at least. Question #1: Do I like him if I need to ask someone if I like him or not? (if that makes sense) Question #2: Is it true your friends can figure out who you like sooner than you can? Question #3: Do I like him because I get unbearably embarrassed whenever she asks me?
