  • Is all UK football governed, at least in some way, by the English FA, and even overall by FIFA?

    I read (on Wikipedia) that the English FA "is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the amateur and professional game in its territory".

    Does this mean they technically have authority over me and my friends playing football in the park?

    What happens if we play with slightly different rules?

  • Do I need a working visa for volunteer work in Canada?

    I'm thinking of doing a volunteer holiday in Canada, where I would help people out in exchange for accommodation/food (E.g. helping someone run their hotel in exchange for a bed and meals). No money would change hands.

    Do I need a working visa to do this, or would a standard tourist visa be OK?

    I've searched for this info online, including on the official Canadian visa website, but it is not entirely clear. I am from the UK, if that makes a difference.

    Thanks in advance :)

  • I have a Samsung phone and laptop. Is there any benefit to getting a Samsung camera?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and a Samsung Series 5 550P5C laptop. It's just a coincidence, I didn't buy the laptop because it was Samsung, it was just the best offer. However, I am now looking for a camera and I was wondering if there is any benefit in getting a Samsung camera, particularly the Samsung Galaxy camera. Thank you!

  • Are TV adverts covered by normal copyright laws?

    If I were to record a TV advert from television and then reproduce it elsewhere, am I liable for a copyright claim? I know the content is owned by the company/companies that produced the advert, but does it make a difference that they have made the content publicly available (either on TV or the Internet)?

    Does the fact that the content has been made public make a difference to the copyright?

    Generally speaking, the point of adverts, I assume, is to try to display the content to as many users as possible. There may be targeted audiences, but any advertising is good advertising, right? By reproducing the advert somewhere else (as long as I don't edit it or show it in a bad way), surely I would be helping the company, rather than hindering it?

  • Should I go to see the Northern Lights in December 2013 or early 2014?

    I'm thinking of going to see if I can see the Northern Lights this winter, but I'm not sure exactly when to go. I believe that March/April is the best time, but I was also thinking of going in December.

    2013 is supposed to be a really good year for the Aurora Borealis, but will 2014 be good as well? Will it make much difference waiting until March/April 2014?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Where can I find statistical data on historical global deforestation?

    I need data on total global forest size since the 1950s on a year by year basis. However, I would prefer to go back as far as possible. I would like to put the data into a spreadsheet, but any source would be welcome. Thanks.

  • Are pub quiz type games legal?

    Seeing as you pay to enter a team, I assume it is a form of gambling. So, under English law, is it legal?

    Would it be legal for me to set up an online quiz between my friends that was based purely on skill where they paid money to enter and the money was split between the winner(s)?

    Thanks, Ian

    PS don't answer if you don't have something to back it up with.

  • Would you play in this arcade?

    If someone created a video arcade where you played games like PES, Wii Sports, Mortal Combat, Street Fighter, etc against other people, would you go?

    Instead of all the games being games that you can't play and practice at home, you would use Nintendo Wiis, N64s, PS2s, etc. Then you can practice and go and play other people.

  • Why do mental people rock?

    I saw and advert with a bear that had gone mad from being made to perform circus tricks for too long. All it does now is sit and rock backwards and forwards constantly.

    This isn't the first time I've seen/heard of someone/animal going mad and rocking. So, my question is, why does this behavioural dispair result in a rocking motion?

  • How were the first Egyptian hieroglyphs translated?

    Where do you start when translating a completely unknown language, especially one made from previously unknown symbols?

    I'm using Egyptian hieroglyphs as an example. This question applies to any language really!
