The root cause of most famines is human involvement. For example, if we respond to famines by shipping in shiploads of food, it greatly undercuts the local farmers growing food. They no longer have a market to sell their produce because they have to compete against free food. So they end up joining ...

Also, watch out for people that try to turn all your co workers against you. When I was in the hospital last January, one of my co workers was hoping I wouldn't come back so she could have all my hours. I was out for a couple of weeks and this chick was pissed that I came back. There are people who...

I generally just get gifts for the kids in the family (now nephews and nieces kids) Some years they don't go over so well. Last year was a home run. For the two oldest boys who are now in high school, I got shaving mug and brush kits. They love them. I think that their father (my nephew) was a bit j...

This has been bugging me a lot today for no good reason, and I feel like I should be able to figure this out, because the pattern is obvious. When x = 0, y = 0 When x = 1, y = 50 When x = 2, y = 75 When x = 3, y = 87.5 I'm looking for an equation whereby by plugging in an arbitrary value for x, I c...

There are a number of "Count By" threads in Computers, Math, Science, and Technology that would probably be better in the Games section.

There is a "Counting to 1031 on two hands" that is actually in the correct section.

You can count to 31 on one hand and 1031 on two hands by using binary. Each finger has a value as a power of two Right thumb = 2^0 Right index = 2^1 Right middle = 2^2 Right ring = 2^3 right pinky = 2^4 same on the left but 2^5-9 and add them all together I think that you mean 1023. The 1031 is pro...

Find something that you enjoy that people will pay you to do. I used to know a biologist in Houston who had a great job in a medical laboratory, but she soon realized that it was boring. She lasted two years. Guess what she did after that. She washed windows and worked at the door of a night club ad...

That these threads are starting to get old. Just now starting to get old?

So essentially what you're saying is you would happily push someone off a cliff if you knew you could get away with it, because you experience constant boredom and that would make you entertained, as you have exerted power over an individual? Or you look for people who are weaker so you can expand ...

My totally wild guess is I sometimes wonder if Trump has a mild disorder of the corpus callosum where the two brain hemispheres connect. This is because in weird way it sometimes seems like there are two 'voices' in Trump interrupting each other trying to offer different points of view. It almost s...

I think it's definitely an important piece of the puzzle, along with raising endorphins and getting rid of cortisol. A lifetime of being overly stimulated would easily lead to cortisol buildup. There are other uses for oxytocin that just might present problems in some cases. For one, it is given to...

My dog, Whiskey, had to be put down toward the end of August.

He was a big dog and still managed to live 12 years. I was only expecting him to live about 7 years considering his size.

I'm not the one taking sides, I'm just being logical and reasonable. I look at the evidence and the claims from both sides. I showed that the US is hardly a 'free' country if it's going to try and take down media that reports alternative views and facts it doesn't like. So you tried to turn it on m...
