  • Why don't people fall off the earth in Australia?

    I'm planning a trip to the "land down under", and my mom started making jokes about stuff falling out of my pocket (because I'll be on the bottom of the globe) and such. This led to a discussion about why people DON'T fall off the bottom of the earth. I Googled it and found several scientific explanations, but I would like... show more

I Googled it and found several scientific explanations, but I would like someone to explain it to me in simple layman's terms. Thanks in advance.

  • What size is plus size?

    I'm not sure what size is plus size anymore. I'm not talking about models, I'm talking about regular women. At what size does "plus sized" start?

  • If I filed for a DBA in California, but not conducting business, do I HAVE to get a biz license??

    I filed for a DBA last year (mostly so nobody else could take the name), but I haven't actually started doing business under the name yet, and have no plans to do so right now. I just received a letter from some outside company saying that I have to pay to get a tax certificate. Do I have to do this if I am not conducting business??

  • How do I clean the palette that I am using to mix oil paints??

    I just started painting with water-mixable oil paints. Getting the paint from my brushes is a breeze (comes out with soap & water). The palette?? Not so simple. I can't seem to clean it completely. Other than using turpentine (which aggravates my asthma), is there anything I can use to get the wooden palette completely clean?
