    Ask me anything... SCIENCE

    OK - Here are the rules:

    1) Ask me anything about science.

    2) I will answer your questions -
    ... a) With deep thought and accuracy, if I know it;
    ... b) With a whole-hearted attempt (and guess work), if I'm not sure;
    ... c) With humor and lateral logic if I really don't know; and
    ... d) If your question is NOT a science-specific one, please don't post it here, as I am a dunce in all things NOT science (except Disney, of course). I emplore you to seek guidance elsewhere, most notably from our dear friend as mentioned below in point 3.

    3) In a similar fashion as Dear GrumpyDude™, I will try my best to answer every question in a timely manner; I'm usually on every evening unless I fall asleep watching exciting NBA highlights.

    4) Disclaimer - I don't claim to be expertly knowledgeable in ALL things science, but I've got a pretty well-rounded background, from astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, geography, materials science, mathematics, medicine, physiology, physics, and zoology. What I don't know I'll make up - you may not be able to tell the difference.

    Note: If the question you ask is from a homework assignment or for a project presentation, then please proceed cautiously. I make no claims to legal accuracy, but if you can arrange partial credit for me at your end, then let's work together for fame, fortune, and of course... SCIENCE!

    I can't think of anything right now Craig, but I sure hope this thread survives! Read your disclaimer, but I sure think you could come in handy in the next couple of years when Parker has Science studies on a more regular basis!

    Why do schools teach the same thing over and over, year after year? My son just had a test on matter and it has to be about the 3 year in a row to have a test on this stuff...

    you're in the wrong thread!

    it is due to the warmer liquid rapidly transferring energy to the ice cubes.

    blue eyes could've been a recessive gene in both families.

    you're in the wrong thread!

    schools teach the same thing over and over because they've devolved to minimum security institutions.
