  • Why do German cars require so many repairs if they are so good?

    I own a Mitsubishi, I have driven it 50,000 miles and not paid a single dollar in any kind of maintenance.

  • Will baking chocolate spoil if you add water to it?

    I know that chocolate doesn't need refrigeration, but I was wondering if I melted it and added a peppermint extract that has a small amount of water in it, would it then spoil because of the water content if unrefrigerated?

    Non-qualified stock options are taxed on exercise but if I just bought say a standard exchange traded call option and exercised it, I would not be taxed until I actually sold the stock.

  • Why do people make tea with hot water?

    I always hear that your supposed to make tea with hot water. I have always just took the tea bag, bobbed in in a glass of cold water and then drank it. It seems to taste better, is about the same strength and is a lot easier than brewing it with hot water.
