  • Why do many teens wear glasses with those thick plastic frames?

    I personally cant think of any benefits from them. They are relatively heavy which can lead to facial strain. The lens look really thick and heavy too which further adds weight. They're just generally not efficient eyewear. Personally, I prefer the thin titanium ones because they wiegh much less and you can choose the thin lens. So why do people chose the inefficient one?

  • Why is it that the more expensive a restaurant is, the smaller their dishes become?

    I really don't get it. At a reasonably priced restaurant ($20-$30 total spent) each food dish you order seems like it has a good amount of food on it; probably enough to feed 2 people. The customer can be satisfied that his/her money was worth it. I then looked at some advertisements from expensive restaurants (~ $200) and it seems that the dishses look small and unsatifying. To give you a picture, think of a $100 steak platter, except that you're getting a cell phone sized piece of steak with some broken pieces of celery thrown in drizzeled with a scant amount of dressing. The whole dish just looks like leftovers on a plate. Why are expensive restaurants like this, and why do people keep coming to them just to get ripped off?

  • What type of Blog makes the most money?

    I am thinking about starting a blog to make money online. I know that I must increase traffic to my site with my blog content. However, I am confronted with the question of whether I should write an amalgam of diverse articles (personal thoughts, celebrities, tech, politics, etc.), or should I stick to 1 single very elaborate subject? Which type of blog makes the most money?

  • Could this have been an evil paranormal experience?

    Im older now, so this was when I was 1 or 2 years old. There was a small 6ft hallway that connected the living room and a small bathroom. There was a larger than normal rusted shovel leaning on the wall that was facing straight towards the hallway. I was watching my mom wash clothes in the bathroom, and my body was not quite in the bathroom, only halfway. Suddently, an unexplainable fear came over me. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw that something was not right with the shovel, so I looked at it. There was a face on the rusted shovel, and it clearly looked evil. Think moth-wing eyes with a menacing grimace. The face itself was slightly darker red so that you'd have to look at it with some effort. I suddently tried to scramble all the way into the bathroom to hide but my mom's legs were blocking the entrance, and my mom was facing away from all of this and unaware, so I ended up wedging myself between her leg and the side of the bathroom entrance. When I looked back at the shovel, the face was gone, and I know it was NOT my imagination. Nothing I could imagine could have scared me enough to seek total cover from a shovel.

  • Could I make an FM Transmitter from a controller?

    I want to make an fm transmitter becuase they are too expensive to buy. I found a radio control from a rc car that I could use. It is rated at 49 mhz, so if I could find the capacitor (i think its a capacitor that controls frequency, tell me otherwise if I'm wrong) that controls the frequency, I could increase the frequency to the FM range by replacing it with a variable capacitor. Im going to put in a audio input jack into the controller too. The controller uses a 9 volt battery. Would this idea work with a regular radio, as in actually being able to play music?

  • Why do women talk as if they think you know what they are talking about?

    Lets just say that you wanted to find a certain tool. You ask a woman and she will say, oh its in that cabinet, except that there are not one but several cabinets. Needless to say, those directions are very vague.

    Another example is when you ask what day a certain event happened

    on. She says something like: That day, I went to the fair and bought these things. But she acts like you know which day it is.

  • Why do people automatically assume you are religious when you tell them you work at a religious program?

    I specifically told them that I work there. Are people too stupid to consider the fact that just because I work at someplace religious, I myself might not be part of that religion?

  • What to do with 419 Nigerian scams?

    Im thinking of a way to scam the scammers themselves. I have heard that in some rare cases, the scammer actually does send money. I will set up a separate bank account just for scams, and tell the scammer what the bank account number is. If the scammer tries to rip me off, they lose because I don't have money. If the scammer does send money, I will keep watch and immediately transfer the money to a real separate bank account. Also I will mail heavy weight useless objects like old washing machines so that the bill will be placed on the scammer. BINGO! The scammer gets scammed. So what do you think?

  • What would be a good statistical test for this data?

    I did an experiment and collected 2 sets of data. Each subject basically answered 2 questions (each questions contributing to each set). I want to find out if these two sets are correlated or not.

    What would be a good stat test for it? Thanks.

  • Will my plan help me grow taller?

    This is not something I bought, just one that I thought up.

    - Takes place during 3 months or so, maybe during low stress times.

    - HGH pills. I will use less than what the instructions actually say per dose.

    - balanced diet to create influx of nutrients, but more of everything, even vegetables. I will eat to the point where I feel uncomfortable. I will take a vitamin/calcium supplement with every meal.

    - sleep no later than 9 every night. sleep flat on my back with no pillow.

    - excercise: jogging, swimming, pullups, pushups, jumping.

    - always walk as if I am feeling someone is pulling me apart like noodles, keep body very straight.

  • Are Asians actually smarter, or is it something else?

    studying world history right now, and I am comparing the Europeans and Asians (including muslims) during the time period of the european medieval times. It seems that while the western regions where all obsessed about fearing God, witchhunts, and that even a little rebellion against religion would get one beheaded, the eastern countries were already developing the most advanced technologies in the world, and did not have so much heavy emphasis on a dominating religion (it would help if this could be explained as well; why europeans looked to religion so much.) So it all sums to this: are the asian countries just smarter?

  • Why don't girls "get" jokes?

    So, in a typical group of people, I'm telling a joke. The guys all seem to get it, but MOST of the girls are always like "What you do mean?" or "I don't get it." I also tried this with other groups where there was about an equal ratio of girls to guys, and I found the same result. Why is this?

  • How weird do you think this dream is?

    In this dream, I was the president Bush walking down a highway with no cars on it. Suddenly, a big dinosaur like godzilla appeared, except it had spikes driven into its skull and eyes, and the dinosaur screamed and started chasing me. I ran as fast as I could down the road, but I could not go any further because there was a very high fence, and behind that fence was a slightly taller wall. So I stood looking at the monster in horror. But suddenly, two Mexican men with guns crawled over the wall and fence. First thing they said to me was: You see, we ARE your friends! while smiling, and I smiled back. Then the three of us all started to shoot the monster.
