  • Why doesn't hydrogen exist in pure form on Earth?

    Hydrogen is supposedly the most abundant element in the universe. So why isn't it found in its natural state on earth? I mean, Oxygen's here, so is Carbon. So what's up with Hydrogen?

  • My girl only kisses me when she's drinking?

    OK, I have a sorta/kinda have a girlfriend now. We've been dating for about a month. I like this girl a lot, and we haven't gotten REALLY physical into the relationship. But, she only seems to kiss me when she's drinking. All other times I get a longing *hug* and a peck on the cheek, if anything. So, seriously. What gives? ... show more

We've already ruled out bad breath (I asked her directly and she said no, and then asked me if her breath smelt bad. I told her the truth, which is no). What's her deal? Does she like me? Is this cause for concern? I mean, seriously. What the hell?

    Okay, I don't want to admit that it bothers me, but I have to get it out somehow because it's been on my mind. A white guy who used to threaten me with physical violence and call me nasty racial epithets (I'm Asian) in high school found me on Facebook. It's been ten years since we've graduated high school, and he sent me a nasty message saying to me, "You were a punk bich (sic) in high school, and you're a punk ***** now, and you KNOW I mean that." What's this guy's problem? Geez, I moved on and forgot about it. I blocked him on Facebook and reported the comment to the Facebook team. But now, I can't concentrate at work because I start having fantasies about torturing/murdering him to death very slowly. Last night I dreamed I was stabbing him in the testicles with an icepick, repeatedly, over and over, and it actually EXCITED me (use your imagination, yes, THAT kind of excitement). Those feelings and fantasies disgust me because they offend my sensibilities and they remind me that I am capable of brutal violence if pushed the wrong way. I hate this guy so much because he brings out the worst feelings in me. Fundamentally, I am a kind, loving, hardworking person with a beautiful girlfriend and a great career, but this guy got to me in the nasty, ugly way that only high school hate can do to you. I DON'T want to murder this guy, but I would if I were assured I would get away with it, scot-free. So, now you know that I'm a psychopath who takes enjoyment in torturing people I hate, my question is: 1. What's this guy's problem? 2. What should I do about it? 3. Any emotionally healthy coping skills?

  • How to fight/neutralize a threat with a size disadvantage?

    A 5-7 160lb guy is going toe-to-toe with a 6-5 180 guy. No weapons for either. the 5-7 guy knows a little bit of Krav and Jiu-jitsu. The 6-5 guy was a wide receiver/wrestler in high school, unknown if he knows any sort of MMA. So, any advice for the 5-7 guy? Does he even stand a chance? What can he do?

  • How did the chicken end up in the guys' suite in "The Hangover"? SPOILER ALERT!?

    I love this movie. I've seen it four times already this summer, but one question bugs me: There's a free-range chicken wandering around in the suite when they all wake up the next morning. The first time I saw it, I totally thought they were going to feed the chicken to Mike Tyson's tiger at some point (missed opportunity, I guess). ... show more

The first time I saw it, I totally thought they were going to feed the chicken to Mike Tyson's tiger at some point (missed opportunity, I guess). So, the movie explains the following through the course of the movie: Stu's missing tooth, the baby in the suite, the tiger in the bathroom, the naked Asian man in the trunk, the police car, but WHAT'S THE STORY WITH THE CHICKEN??? Anybody have a clue? Ellaborations and embellishments are greatly appreciated. Funniest answer wins.

A millionaire has told you that he will give you approximately $5000 in cash if you can capture, sedate and deliver the former heavyweight champ to him unharmed. He will give you $1000 in expenses to assist you in your quest. So, how do you capture and sedate Mr. Tyson? A dumb question, but I'm really going to select the funniest answer as the best. So this answer will be voted on the basis of its laugh factor, of which I am the sole judge.

Several times she's waited on me to walk out to my car with me when I get off @ 5pm. She is unbelievably hot and is always wanting to show me her tattoos. She always wants to chat and is contuinally poking me and making jokes about getting "poked" herself. Of course I can't resist her. But I looked in the backseat of her car and saw a child seat. She also has a very large kryptonite ring on her finger, however, she refers to her husband in very unflattering terms. Um okay? So, should I go for this "broad" or not??? I am conflicted because I am very attracted to her but I fear the consequences. Someone help!
