Dumb Question Amnesty Thread

Recommended Posts

Here’s a question that was first asked by the great philosopher, Beavis. I’ve never been able to figure it out.

Why do they call it “taking a dump” and not “leaving a dump”?

George Carlin beat Beavis to that one.

I know that when women of reproductive years get around each other for prolonged periods of time, mainly in the same dwelling or workplace...that their menstrual cycles can (and usually do) synch up after a few/several months.  We see it with women we are related to, in our own homes, etc.  

But my question, to which woman do the rest of the cycles look for synchronicity?  Is it the woman who has had periods the longest?  That's not necessarily the oldest woman.  Is it the woman who has most recently began her monthly period?  Is it the woman who nature knows is closest to the end of her child-rearing years?  Is it the woman who is most sexually active?  or the least sexually active?  Is the woman who is sort of the "leader"?  Say you have four women from ages 25-45 living together, some sort of blended family situation or what have you.  One may not be the oldest, but she's just a leader-type in all walks of life.  Do the cycles rally around her?  

I'm serious, we all see this happen.  But they don't all just suddenly rally around the 17th of the month, they sort of rotate around and around each other, but one force is more centrifugal than the others, and they kinda are drawn to that one.  But which?

I've always assumed that this was the result of a sort of "hormone thunderdome" where the Highlander Uterus eventually strongarms the weaklings into compliance.

Is there a site you can go to, not pinterest or buying a book, that has LEGO builders give step-by-step instructions on how to build big stuff from a LEGO Classic Set?  Daughter got one for Christmas and we've built the little stuff that the "IDEA" Booklet inside gave us.  It's 1500 pieces (humblebrag, ha!), and I "free-built" a little doggy day care center for her and her plastic doggies.  But I want to do something big and bold.  I'm pretty good with this stuff, but there are so many brilliant people out there with Legos and thought a step-by-step directions guide would help her (as well as me).  Any "rogue" lego sites where you just give them what pieces you have to work with and they can give you all kinds of cool and big stuff to build?  Surely, that exists off the darkweb.

In recruiting, what does JAG mean?

I’m sure this has been asked before, but the search function may as well be non existent.

Why does my piss smell like asparagus after eating it?

It’s a tracer element, like corn in poo!

Which brings up another topic, why do all other foods “process”, but corn comes out whole sometimes?

You may have thought that you were purchasing corn in the past, but this is a common mistake. If you had read the contract more closely, you would have discovered that you can only rent corn.

I've dropped in my own 110 and 220 outlets, exhaust fans, switched out car batteries, even did the electrical on my tankless water heater.  I am by no means an electrician, but I am better than most around the house and car.  Having said that, I have absolutely no idea about this...if I leave my DC car charger plugged into the lighter overnight or even while parked and inside somewhere, will it drain my battery?

there are such a thing as "left-handed threads".  For instance, almost all big trucks have LH threads on the wheel lugs (on the driver's side).  Also, many lawnmower blades are held on with a LH thread bolt.  

They are used when the torque of the normal operation would tend to loosen a RH threaded fastener. 

 

One bicycle pedal (I can never remember which one) screws on left handed.

Is the charger actually charging anything? If not, then based on my wife's cell phone charger being plugged in 24/7, then no.

You don't eat corn for nutrition, you eat corn for TEXTURE.

If it’s got an indicator light it’s pulling a juice. Not much but juice. Most do

Depends. The lighter plug  in my truck is hot whether the key is in it or not, so a charger would drain the battery if plugged in. 

The lighter plug in my wife's car only has juice when the key is on, so no drain there (unless the key was in and the car not running).

Your wife’s plug is definitely hotter than yours.

The endosperm of corn is very tough, and most people do not chew thoroughly, so much of the corn eaten just cruises right through without being digested.

Yes, I know: username checks out.  Call it professional knowledge.

I don’t know why I’m struggling with this basic algebra, but: if I listen to a one hour podcast at 1.25x speed, how long will it take to play?

Yes, but regardless of speed playback, how many minutes is 1 1/4 hours?  I mean, not that I'm trying to see if I can fit in more of a particular porn scene in less real-time minutes.  Just asking for a friend.  She goes to a different school.  In Canada.  The University of Canada.

Speaking of Canada....

Do the colleges in Canada that play football play by American rules or CFL rules?

Inquiring minds want to know.

CFL rules (longer field, 3 downs, rouge (1 pt for kicking it through the end zone, etc) and the stadiums are typically smaller than a Texas high school stadium, unless they are share with a CFL team.

If it weren't for Canadian colleges, American football might still be soccer. We got the idea of rugby style play and carrying the ball from them.

Who the fuck is Mookie Betts and why is he being talked about on sports radio. 
 

 

But seriously, knew the name a little bit still had to google him. I’m already going into sports depression without football. And wake me up for playoffs for basketball.

Somehow my kids haven’t killed themselves playing on it yet. They’ve just managed to get some minor bruises and scrapes.
