In the interest of conserving thread space (happy Nick?), I’ve compounded the following three questions to a single thread. This should be confusing as hell.
Uno: Why do things such as carpets, cardboard and dogs ('specially dogs) stink when wet? Yes, I know there are more but I want to know WHY, dammit!
Duex: Why does a fresh ice cube from the tray stick to my fingers? Oh, and, uh, yes, my hands are clean.
Drei: The slowing of the Earth’s rotation is said to add one second to the day every 62,500 years. Now I don’t have my calculator nearby but can I assume that eventually the Earth will cease to rotate altogether. If so, will this not lead to the death of at least half of the planet? And, assuming Strom Thurmond is still around, is it possible for him to calculate which half?
