  • Why does Yahoo Answers not show some of the questions I ask and MOST of the answers I post?

    The vast majority of answers I post never actually show up. I figured this out by opening a window in which I was no logged in and looking at the post and my answer isn't there. This is really frustrating because I can put a lot of effort into an answer and have it never show up. I thought at first I was IP banned or something, so I made a new... show more

This is really frustrating because I can put a lot of effort into an answer and have it never show up. I thought at first I was IP banned or something, so I made a new account on a VPN and it didn't work, but then again you have to input your phone number to make an account so maybe my phone number is somehow banned? idk it's annoying because I see everyone else's answers fun but 1/100 of my answers actually post.

  • I'm using a headphone that's 30 years old. Should I upgrade?

    Yes, a headphone, just 1. And it's plastic, no rubber top thingy, so it's not that comfortable. But it works. And it's from a cassette player made for a computer in 1981.

  • Why do people view media owned by corporations as inherently more reliable than media owned by governments?

    Surely it's possible a corporation might want to twist their media narrative to either benefit themselves financially or to push the CEO's political agenda? Why is it that we all agree government-ran media can be biased in this way but somehow if it's a corporation, that has even less transparency than a government, we somehow view it... show more

  • Why does Yahoo Answers keep hiding my posts?!?

    I'm tired of writing basically a 4-page essay responses and pouring my heart and soul into giving as much detail as possible, only to open the answer page in incognito mode and see I wasted all my time because Yahoo Answers HIDES IT.

  • Why is it that no "pansexual" seems to even know what the word means, and thinks it means bisexual?

    100% of pansexuals I've talked to say that pansexuality is "attraction to people, regardless of gender". But if you have any basic understanding of the gender terms, you'd know that this is, indeed, just a round-about way of describing bisexuality. But then, and I know you're probably furiously typing away at it now, that... show more

But if you have any basic understanding of the gender terms, you'd know that this is, indeed, just a round-about way of describing bisexuality. But then, and I know you're probably furiously typing away at it now, that "PANSEXUALITY ISN'T BISEXUALITY BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!" And I agree with you! They're different! But the way 100% of pansexuals I've talked to define it in a way to mean the same thing as bisexuality, and they're definitions are wrong. Everyone lies on the gender spectrum, even "non-binaries". Because gender is a description of behavior based on whatever society you're living in, it's not some arbitrary thing. Everyone exhibits some behaviors we'd describe as "masculine" or "feminine" to at least some extent (those who exhibit these behaviors irregularly are "genderfluid"). Because of this, a bisexual is attracted to anyone, regardless of gender. It means the same thing, because everyone fits on the spectrum. It's not that bisexuality = pansexuality, it's that "pansexual's" definition of pansexuality is wrong. Pansexuality is "a person who is fluid in sexual orientation". This doesn't mean they're just attracted to anyone, it means their sexual orientation itself is fluid. A pansexual man would go from gay, to straight, to bi, pretty regularly.

  • What are sine and cosine? Where do they come from?

    I'm a senior in high school and they never explain this and it really bothers me. They just say "you can use sine/cosine/tangent to solve triangles"... but why? Like, if I graph y=sin(x) I get a wave, but why? How does my calculator know that sin(50 radians) = -0.26? How does it determine this? I guess my question is, what is the... show more

Like, if I graph y=sin(x) I get a wave, but why? How does my calculator know that sin(50 radians) = -0.26? How does it determine this? I guess my question is, what is the definition of the sine and cosine functions and how were they determined?
