Haha, you win awesome question of the day!
Let's assume we're not using mass-energy equivalence here (i.e. we're not obliterating the battery's mass into pure energy). We're just using electrical energy.
This site claims that an alkaline AA battery has 9360 Joules of energy.
9360 Joules is 9360 Newton-meters. Let's assume the punch is thrown over the distance of one meter (it's a roundhouse with a big windup).
So, what does 9360 Newtons do to a fist over one meter? First, that energy has to move the whole arm (disregard body movement). This site has an average human arm weight of 3.216kg.
Using F=ma, with F=9360N, and m=3.216kg, we find that the acceleration of your arm is 2910 meters per second squared.
Plugging this into the formula for uniform acceleration (with an initial velocity of zero), we arrive at the figure that the fist hits you at approximately 76 meters per second, or 170mph.
I conclude it will hurt like a bitch, QED.
None of your questions seem like an attack, so no worries.
1) The USA is big (2.5 times the size of Western Europe), varied, and full of interesting places to travel. Also, until very recently (2007-2009, depending on mode of travel), US citizens were able to travel to most nearby countries (Canada, Mexico, island nations such as the Bahamas) without a passport. The US now requires a passport to reenter the country from any other, so US passport use should dramatically increase.
2) This is not true in my experience.
3) That seems to be a very complicated answer involving both poverty and cultural issues. Here's someone else's attempt to answer that.
4) That's probably true. But is it unique to the USA? Very few people seem to like being criticized by outsiders.
5) The USA is very patriotic/jingoistic in many ways.
6) Yes, I think so, despite difficult economic times.
Lighter skinned people have less ability to tan than darker skinned people. Therefore they must tan over much longer periods of time. As a result your skin will be slowly replacing itself at a rate of a new epidermis every 35 days. However the layer of skin which contains the melanin which causes true tanning is five layers deep. So theoretically a Caucasian could continuously get darker for 175 days until the first tanned layer of epidermis is finally exposed and replaced. How dark exactly is that? That depends entirely on the person. The gene which causes lighter skin (humans were originally black) is a mutation that is only necessary in higher latitudes to sustain proper vitamin D absorbency. That mutation is not constant or predictable, so all we can really go by is how long an individual can tan. We'll call it 175 days.
Edit: Correct me if I am wrong.
Or maybe this is more or less what he meant.
edit: If for whatever reason you don't get it.
No, any food product with a sufficiently high sugar content will dry out any bacteria that try to take root and last more or less forever. The prime example of this is standard table sugar; as long as table sugar is kept dry it has an indefinite shelf life. Sugar is so good at killing bacteria it has been used historically as a wound dressing http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Has_sugar_ever_been_used_to_treat_battlefield_wounds
Honey has been used this way as well and even has some additional antibacterial properties. http://www.worldwidewounds.com/2001/november/Molan/honey-as-topical-agent.html
This does not, however, make honey unique among liquids for shelf life. Any thick treacle syrup, such as golden syrup or molasses will also last indefinitely. I'm certain a thick enough maple syrup would as well, though commercially available Maple Syrups tend to be thin enough to allow mold growth.
Getting away from syrups, cornstarch has an indefinite shelf life as long as it is kept dry. http://argostarch.com/faq.html I wouldn't be surprised if other simple ingredients behaved the same way. Flour doesn't, but wheat can still produce high quality flour for at least 20 years if stored properly. I know there have been examples of VERY old grain sprouting, and if it can sprout it still has food value.
There have been apocryphal example of canned goods being edible for a long, long time. From what I've read, it doesn't really spoil, it just becomes a matter of what you consider "edible," as the chemicals in the canned food slowly react and ruin flavor and nutritional value over time.
Well, I found an answer by a geologist that suggests that most of the sand in the Sahara is transient and no more than ~150m deep, and with dunes up to 320m high. However, since large swaths of the Sahara are bare rock and not sand, your answer will vary from 0m to <500m (at the tops of the highest dunes) until you strike ancient sandstone or other rock.

Yup, it's been discussed in a lot of r/aww posts; baths are pretty much unnecessary for bunnies and the stress/shock of the bath has a good chance of killing them, especially for the average bunny owner.

They're apex predators. It's actually camouflage from prey, not predators.

Well in the 13 years that he has known of the existence of that seat, I can fairly certainly say that the school bus was in commission approx. 180 days out of each year for a total of 2340 days before the seat was retired to Jake. Of those 180 days, assuming the bus was near full capacity and that seat was occupied, (I am going to leave out the field trips and other times somebody has sat in that seat, because I'm sure it will balance out the days students were absent and that seat was left unattended), and the fact that a student was sitting on that seat to and from school, we will assume that seat had a human bum on it 4680 times in 13 years, most likely for more than 15 minutes at a time (because why the hell else would you be riding the school bus?)
according to this source The average human farts upwards of 25 times per day, so for the purpose of this equation, I'm going to say once per hour, and to make things easier, I'm going to pretend people prefer farting on a school bus full of people instead of by themselves walking down their parking lots. With this information we can safely assume that seat has been farted on 4680 times.

Holy shit cite your sources and stop making up numbers:
31224 deaths / 58,000,000 gun owners = 0.000538 or 1 death per 1858 ~~guns~~ gunowners
Approximately 350 million guns in the US. Remember that gun registration is VERY recent relative to guns and most guns are not registered.
TL;DR There are more guns than cars, your argument is incorrect, and cite your sources
Edit: also gun ownership in the US is closer to 40% not 25% (http://www.allcountries.org/gun_ownership_rates.html)
Yes. Ladies and Gentleman, the American healthcare system.
EDIT: Of course no one can pay this. Most people would probably have filed bankruptcy. Some would just let it ravage their credit scores and deal with the debt collectors.

No one would end up paying this, because anyone who could afford it would have health insurance.

Yep, I truly regret creating that first Chuck Testa imagemacro (with the shark), simply because of what it devolved to. Memes are only funny in moderation, and it seems Reddit has lost the ability to control the flow of these "in-jokes." They become anachronisms, popping up where they simply don't belong.
For example, I was at a friend's birthday gathering mere days ago, and I heard people shouting, "Nope! Chuck Testa!" The problem was, they simply used this in place of saying, "No," or "No, thank you." Every time they needed to express disagreement, disapproval, or anything negative.
What's more, three or four people laughing at the joke became the entire room laughing, even though only the original three or four understood why. Eventually, everybody in the room began saying, "Nope! Chuck Testa," or some variation thereof—even though fewer than half had ever seen the video or the photomanipulations.
It lost its meaning, and people were simply repeating it to get the approval (laughter) of their peers. This tends to happen all the time with memes. They spread, lose their meaning, and get applied to situations where they are completely inappropriate. It reminds me of the monkey/water spray experiment.
Spiders kill an average of six people a year in the United States.

Most dwarfism is caused by achondroplasia. This means that everything grows normally except for the long bones, such as the bones of the arms and legs. This is why achondroplasic dwarfs have normal sized heads and small arms and legs.
Therefore, achondroplasic dwarfs would have penises the same size as other men. They just look huge compared to the rest of the body.

The problem is with hyperpalatibility of modern processed food, not with 'portion size', or 'willpower'.
There's certain combinations of ingredients (fat, salt, sugar), textures and aromas, that automatically shut down our normal regulatory mechanisms.
"The result is that chain restaurants like Chili’s cook up “hyper-palatable food that requires little chewing and goes down easily,” he notes. And Dr. Kessler reports that the Snickers bar, for instance, is “extraordinarily well engineered.” As we chew it, the sugar dissolves, the fat melts and the caramel traps the peanuts so the entire combination of flavors is blissfully experienced in the mouth at the same time."
Cook yourself a steak, using only salt as a condiment. Try to overeat it - you won't be able to, as even 1lb of steak has the same calories - about 900 - than a large can of pringles. You'll feel stuffed in the first case, and look for a second can in the second.

How can they declare that a black hole is producing sound in space?
There is no sound in space.
We're not even sure if there is love in space:
An amazingly sensitive microphone, in a sense, was used to discover the constant B-flat coming from a black hole. (This found on NASA's website. Based on research from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory."
This comes from the Space.com website...
"Sound can travel through space, because space is not the total vacuum it's often made out to be. Atoms of gas give the universe a ubiquitous atmosphere of sorts, albeit a very thin one. Sound, unlike light, travels by compressing a medium. On Earth, the atmosphere works well as a sound-carrying medium, as does water. The planet itself is very adept at transmitting an earthquake's seismic waves, a form of sound. Space, though not as efficient, can also serve as a medium. If a brave and clever astronaut could safely remove her helmet and shout into the cosmos, her voice would carry."

I don't think so, an apple weighs around 150-180 grams
And gravitational acceleration on earth is 9.81 m/s^2
Then By using Newton's second law of motion: F=ma, we can determine that an apple weighs between 1.47 and 1.77 Newtons
35 of the 55 delegates to the constitutional convention had legal training. 11 speculated on securities, 6 speculated on land, 13 were businessmen and merchants, and 12 ran plantations or large farms. Most of them also had some form of political experience. (source)[http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_were_the_Founding_Father's_occupations]
Other than the farmers, the makeup is probably pretty similar to the makeup of the current Congress (the current Congress is probably more diverse actually). The Constitution was absolutely written with the interests of businesses and the wealthy in mind (e.g. the 3/5ths compromise, only landholders could vote, etc.). The difference is that businesses tended to be a lot smaller and we've either come to accept provisions as normal or revised them.
Please keep in mind this is a declaration, and only the beginning, as was stated above. In 13 days this group of average American citizens -- or seeming "uneducated hippies" with a "persecution complex" -- formed this clear declaration which outlines the plan going forward. It was created faster than the original Declaration of Independence. Our founding father Thomas Jefferson wrote that in 17 days:
So this group of everyday citizens have banded together in the same place and created this document for all us, including all of the skeptics and naysayers among us. For us, because we're not there with them to participate.
I don't want to be negative, because I'm not there with them either (yet), but it's really easy to be an armchair cynic. I urge all of you think about if you want to be part of an empowering, democratic process. Do you have what it takes to be a citizen of a democracy? This might be your chance. And here we are, throwing meaningless spitballs on the internet. I do wish all of you luck and the best, though. I just wanted to take up for these brave people.

From Wiki Answers:
These are called blood spots. Blood spots are the result of broken capillaries in the reproductive system. When a capillary ruptures, a drop of blood leaks out and becomes part of the egg. The presence of a blood spot does not mean the egg is fertile or that an embryo is beginning to form. Egg processors try to identify and remove all eggs containing blood spots before eggs go into the carton. Occasionally one is missed, but if the blood spot is small, it can be removed and the egg used. They are harmless and do not mean the egg is inedible. Small ones disappear when you are cooking the egg. Some people pick them out with a spoon before cooking.
Morning wood is a way to describe waking up with a erection. This is a common occurrence that virtually every male has experienced. In order to understand the reason for morning wood, you must first learn a little about the sleep cycle. When a person first falls asleep they begin in stage 1 NREM (non-rapis eye movement) sleep. As they continue to sleep they fall into a deeper and deeper sleep, eventually arriving at stage 4 NREM. This is the stage where the most restful sleep occurs. After a certain amount of time in stage 4 NREM the person goes into REM sleep, which is a fairly shallow sleep. This is the part of sleep when you dream. In this stage of sleep your body gets temporarily paralyzed and runs a series of self checks. One of those is an erection, called nocturnal tumescence. If you wake up while in REM sleep, you will wake up with morning wood. The body cycles through the different stages approximately every 90 minutes through the night, but as you get more and more rested, you spend less time in the restful NREM sleep and more time in the dream filled (and erection filled) sleep. So the longer you sleep, the more likely you will wake up with morning wood.

Actually, apples are considered a temporary alternative.
Apples are a mildly acidic fruit. Because of their slightly astringent quality, they are an ideal food for cleansing and brightening teeth. The acidic nature of an apple is not enough to make a person's teeth pearly white. The acid needs the help of the fiber-rich flesh of the apple.
Crunchy foods, including apples, celery, and carrots, act like mini toothbrushes when they are chewed. The crunchy bits actually help scrub away stubborn stains. This does not happen in a day but will take a while. The cleansing effect may be noticeable, even if it's very slight, particularly if the apple eater is a coffee drinker who hadn't been eating apples every day to begin with.
After eating an apple, it's still important to brush your teeth. The apples still have sugar and acid in them which can damage the teeth. Leaving the sugar and acid on the teeth will reverse the benefits that eating an apple gave the teeth. Also, it's a good idea to brush away the loosened plaque from the teeth so that it cannot become reattached to the teeth. If a tooth brush is not available after an apple, rinsing the apple down with some water may be the next best thing.
Yet, it's illegal to go down the road and put things in peoples' mailboxes without going through USPS.
> "Whoever knowingly and willfully deposits any mailable matter such as
statements of accounts, circulars, sale bills, or other like matter,
on which no postage has been paid, in any letter box established,
approved, or accepted by the Postal Service for the receipt or
delivery of mail matter on any mail route with intent to avoid payment
of lawful postage thereon, shall for each such offense be fined under
Ed: Here, have a better quote so you can shut up about intent:
> Other than as permitted by 2.10 or 2.11, no part of a mail receptacle may be used to deliver any matter not bearing postage, including items or matter placed upon, supported by, attached to, hung from, or inserted into a mail receptacle. Any mailable matter not bearing postage and found as described above is subject to the same postage as would be paid if it were carried by mail
2.10 and 2.11 refer to multiple-family mailboxes.
Ed2: This is also why many people have two "mail"boxes: one for mail an one for their newspaper delivery. Newspapers pay no post and therefore cannot be delivered into the same receptacle the USPS does.

"Classic" brown or black birthmarks may be due to genetic anomalies: some seem to be hereditary, appearing on the same areas of the bodies of different members of the same family; others occur randomly on individuals. "Mongolian marks" (usually bluish/ grey colour) occur frequently on babies of Asian ancestry. Brown birthmarks tend to occur on white people (5-10% frequency in most populations), although black people may have them too: they're most frequently located on the trunk, buttocks & legs; they occur more in women than men, & are most common on blondes/ fair skinned people, and especially redheads. Exactly why this is is uncertain, but it's most probably a genetic cause.

Sociopaths have NO conscience, though they know the difference between right and wrong. So they don't experience remorse or a sense of guilt. Usually they even have great difficulty owning their actions. In other words, they often can't even bring themselves to say, "Yes, I did this" if it's something society disapprove of. Another key characteristic of sociopaths is callousness and lack of empathy, so genuine sadness for others is something they aren't capable of. Many sociopaths are quite good actors. They know how to pretend to show sympathy and so on. Sometimes they give themselves away by displaying exaggerated or even melodramatic sympathy that doesn't ring true. Always look out for uncalled for drama. As for 'feeling bad for themselves', it usually takes the form of aggressive self-pity. As they can't accept responsibility for their own actions, they blame their misfortunes on others.

Whoa whoa whoa wait. ALLEGED suicide? You sir are a conspiracy theorist no better than those who believe we faked the moon landing. I'll use only your example of why it wasn't really suicide.
Kurt Cobain was 5'10" but he frequently hunched because he had scoliosis. Meaning people tend to think of him as short as 5'7" but for arm length we use the 5'10" height. A person with a 5'10" frame has on average 33 inch arms. The gun he used to commit suicide was 45 inches in length from tip to tail. The trigger was approximately 31 inches away from his face.
Result? Long enough arms. No feet required.
Average arm length.
While I won't comment on his music one way or another, to blindly assert his death was anything other than suicide is ignorant.
You do get approx 1 inch shorter at the end of the day
...and more here
> Did you know that every day you shrink a little, too? You aren't as tall at the end of the day as you are at the beginning. That's because as the day goes on, water in the disks of the spine gets compressed (squeezed) due to gravity, making you just a tiny bit shorter. Don't worry, though. Once you get a good night's rest, your body recovers, and the next morning, you're standing tall again!

The opposition doesn't like chavez mainly because he is against the "yankees" (No insult intended) and because they are all (well, most of them) wannabe Yankees.
Besides, if you ask a rich person in Venezuela how it is in Venezuela, they will propably say that it's not good because they are getting "robbed".
And if you ask a poor person how it is, they will probably say that life has changed for their good with special governmental plans and other things...
I'm not saying that rich people are living better than ever but in this egoistic and unfair world we will have to begin sacrificing somethings for us to live in a better and fairer world.

No indication of any. It's known to be able to cross the barrier from mother to fetus, but no effects known (and no reason to believe there would be any in early stages). It's possible that later in pregnancy the fetus could feel the effects of the drug. Also, uterine contractions are a potential side effect, so taking LSD is certainly not advised while pregnant.
The only way there would be damage to the fetus was if the myth that LSD destroys chromosomes was true, and it's not. The fact is that we know very little about LSD, so there's no good evidence to be seen on the subject.

You should be fine.
It has always been that way... gas prices in London right now.
As many here have mentioned, most people in other countries drive much smaller cars or motor scooters, and not nearly as often or as far as we Americans do. We live in one of the most wasteful societies on Earth (at least where oil is concerned).
If our gas prices were at the level of other countries, don't you think we would all be driving electric cars by now? Yet here we are... in our Escalades and Hummers going grocery shopping. ಠ_ಠ
HUA/hooah is Army
Hoorah/oorah is Marines.
I was in the army for a while. Do not get caught saying oorah :P
Not to mention that lower classes tend to be more religious on average than the middle and upper echelons of society. Poorer families also tend to have more kids than the well off and well educated leading to the rather ironic situation of natural selection now buttfucking the smart in favour of the stupid and the religious.
>And he plead away the right to vote. Forever. Before he could even use it once.
Depends on the state, many will allow you to regain voting rights and even firearm ownership.
Like check out Washington: http://wei.secstate.wa.gov/osos/en/voterinformation/Pages/felons.aspx
"If you were convicted of a felony, your right to vote is restored as long as you are not in prison or on community custody with the Washington State Department of Corrections (DOC). Once your right is restored, you must re-register to vote in order to receive a ballot."
Or gun rights in Idaho: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Can_a_non_violent_convicted_felon_get_his_gun_rights_back_for_hunting_in_Idaho
"To request the expungement of an offense from your STATE (not Federal) criminal record: You must have either been exonerated, acquited, or served the complete term of your sentence - then file a petition/motion with the court setting forth valid reason(s) why your request should be granted. A judge will review your petition and the circumstances of your case and issue a ruling either granting or denying the request. AN EXPUNGEMENT IS NOT A PARDON! Expungement only removes the record of your offense from being available to the public. Law enforcement, the courts, and government agencies will always have access to your actual 'true' record."
I'd take that over the Brett Favre broken fingers
I just looked it up because I was curious how bad it was.
TIL Brett Favre has broken all 10 of Antonio Freeman's fingers.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought one of the draws to having a granite counter top was that it wouldn't be scratched by daily use, or by steel tools/knives. This says what OP just said. This suggests that even though granite is made out of soft materials, the fact that it's a rock that's been heated and allowed to grow new crystals increases it's hardness.
Iron is soft, and so is charcoal, but that doesn't mean steel is somewhere between the two.
Literally took 5 seconds to Google this:
Geographically, Australia is a continent, not an island. As a landform, it could be considered an island as it is entirely surrounded by water and not joined onto any other land mass. For this reason, it is often referred to as an island continent. Australia is too big to be formally classified as an island. The world's largest island is Greenland.
Another reason why Australia is also considered a continent is because it sits on its own tectonic plate. This is different from Greenland, which uses the same land mass as North America. That is why the geological appearances are much different in Australia from anywhere else. A place like Greenland shares the same geologic attributes as North America.
Australia and Antarctica are the only two true Continental Islands. That is, they are separated from all other continents by water. All other continents are connected by a landmass to at least one other Continent. If there are any waterways, they have been artificially created.
Australia is the smallest continent and the 6th largest country, with an area of 7,686,850 sq km.

but not from sexual arousal. i have a 3 year old son. he gets boners when changing his diaper sometimes, but it is not because of anything to do with sex
These are just rough calculations, and are probably completely wrong, but might be a good starting point...
The size of the room is: 12 x 12 x 9 = 1296 square cubic feet = 36m^3
We breath in 0.0005m^3 per breath^1
Which gives you 0.007m^3 per minute^2
Which is 0.007 * 60 * 8 = 3.36m^3 per night
So that is 9.3% of the air in the room, which is
3.36 * 0.093 = 0.31m^3 of the air you breath.
I'm pretty sure that's all wrong though, I'm not too sure that I am calculating the percentages and stuff correctly, since it could be different with volumes. If I'm wrong, please tell me and show me the correct way to do it.
How about Mexico City? I don't know if they deserve it, but it would probably be profitable for the league. I know there are a lot of Cowboys fans in Mexico, but I bet another team could probably survive if the city become safe enough from the drug wars. The largest attended game ever was there.
edit: I know how unsafe it is there. Mexico City won't be safe for a long time with the current policies regarding the drug war.
..........and wrong. it helps with night vision. just like cat eyes.
trololol the one useless fact you've remembered is wrong.
Goats (and most other animals with hoofs) have horizontal slits which are nearly rectangular when dilated. This gives goats vision covering 320 - 340 degrees; this means they can see virtually all around them without having to move (humans have vision covering 160 - 210 degrees). Consequently, animals with rectangular eyes can see better at night due to having larger pupils that can be closed more tightly during the day to restrict light. Interestingly, octopuses also have rectangular pupils.
Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/The_pupils_of_a_goat%27s_eyes_are_square#ixzz1kV2n6V9D
Turns out it’s not just goats, but most other animals with hooves including deer, some horses, cattle, and many sheep have horizontal pupils. Goats generally have a more pale iris, so their freakish pupils simply show up better. Horizontal slit-shaped pupils give the animal increased peripheral depth perception, as well as increasing their ability to freak me the fuck out.
The pupil in a goat's eye is rectangular instead of round like other animals to give goats excellent night vision.
I remember reading about that before I think, doesn't it have something to do with the water table level being so near the surface?

>As the German soldier stabs Mellish to death, he says:
"Gib' auf, du hast keine Chance! Lass' es uns beenden! Es ist einfacher für dich, viel einfacher. Du wirst sehen, es ist gleich vorbei."

I once calculated the words to hours conversion on LOTR and found out with the same number of words per hour of movie (and hours per movie) for a WoT movie series, I don't remember exactly, but I think I ended up with 27 movies or so.
Edit: I will just do the calculations again.
According to this there is roughly 525.000 words in an electronic copy of entire LOTR series.
According to this the extended edition is 718 minutes which is about 12 hours.
which gives us about 43.750 word per hour movie or roughly 44.000 words.
The entire WoT series (that have been released so far) clocks in at 4.012.859 according to this source, which for ease of calculation is about 4 million.
So we have 4 million divided with 44 thousand which ends up giving about 91 hours.
Each extended movie was on average about 4 hours long. So we divide 91 with 4 and get 23.
That is an icosikaitrilogy!
So yea, it would have to remove quite a bit of "fluff".
But I agree, WoT is on the top of my list of movies that should be made.
What? Pretty sure a thumb normally has only 2 joints, while the other fingers have 3.
The hand outs are problem? Do you think that maybe forcing a western civilised society, with things like alcohol upon a tribal race could have something to do with it?
Australia is only 223 years old. That means we are only at the third or fourth generation of the Aboriginal people since we forced our ways on them.
Alcohol is a major problem as well, Aboriginial people didnt have it until we introduced them to it. Europeans have had centuries to adapt to alcohol, Aboriginies have not had that luxury hence they end up with drinking problems.

Subs generate their own oxygen, pretty efficiently, it sounds like. And nuclear subs have, if anything, an excess of electricity. So drag-inducing gills on any underwater vehicle just don't sound like they would ever be practical in comparison.
On a fixed underwater lab/base... well then you have to move water through them (or position in a strong current) vs. using existing electrical infrastructure to do it the easy way... and maybe making use of the bonus hydrogen too!
My question is why don't we have a permanent awesome underwater research base yet? If some of NASA's cut funding went to that I'd be OK with it...

...and lets not forget the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
>The average spreading rate for the ridge is about 2.5 cm per year.
So the tunnel would have to telescope and stretch constantly with massive pressure differentials between inside the tunnel (in vacuum) and outside the tunnel which is about ~500,000 psi. All while dealing with upwellings of magma along the ridge as the tectonic plates slowly split apart.
Hahahahahahahahahahaha! Sounds very feasible!
Sexual Battery in the state of Louisiana
"A. Sexual battery is the intentional engaging in any of the following acts with another person where the offender acts without the consent of the victim, or where the act is consensual but the other person, who is not the spouse of the offender, has not yet attained fifteen years of age and is at least three years younger than the offender:
(1) The touching of the anus or genitals of the victim by the offender using any instrumentality or any part of the body of the offender; or
(2) The touching of the anus or genitals of the offender by the victim using any instrumentality or any part of the body of the victim."
Basically, it involves the man's genitals touching the other person without their consent.
The last four Harry Potter books average about 200k words. So it would take you about 83 minutes to read one of them. In other words, you could read the book faster than you could watch the movie (way faster in the last book's case). You were flipping a page every 8 seconds. Also, assuming "weeks" means two or more, that means you could only handle an average of six minutes or less per day.

Maybe I am reading this wrong but 400 households have $1.37 Trillion, while the bottom 60% of U.S. households have 1.26 Trillion.
~~2010 estimated population stated as 311,792,000
60% of 311,792,000 = 187,075,200~~
2010 estimated households stated as 114,825,428 60% of 114,825,428 = 68,895,256.8
~~so 187,075,200 people share a little less than 400 hundred people get to share. Lets try this~~
so 68,895,256.8 households share a little less than 400 hundred households get to share. Lets try this
$1,370,000,000,000/68,895,256.8 = $19,885.25
Averaging out, the bottom 60% has about ~~$7,323.25~~ $19,885.25 and for fun lets:
So 400 homes in the bottom 60% (average) have about $5 million. The top 400 have $1.37 trillion. Does that not concern you?
Anyone that wants to correct my errors or call me out in bad math or concepts please do. I sometimes make crappy conclusions.
EDIT: Adjusted numbers for households not total population. Still paints the same story.

Originally, if any player was ahead of the last line of defense when the pass is played, even if he didn't receive the ball and it was passed to someone else, then it is offside. I don't know if I did a good job of explaining it:
Dog's are not colour blind.
"Dogs are not color blind - they see color, but their chromatic acuity is significantly less than humans'. This is for two reasons: (1) dogs have far fewer cone cells in their retina (cone cells are responsible for seeing color); and (2) dogs are dichromatic (they see only two primary colors - blue and yellow) whereas humans are trichromatic, meaning we see three primary colors - red, blue, and yellow.

UV tattoo ink is pretty much 100% chance of skin cancer.
UV ink, White, and the Glow in the dark ink all are strongly linked with cancer and have only been around for maybe 14 years? so imagine how many people have it and have yet to get to be reported as statistics.
or google it.
have some common sense and read this.
Hmmmmn, why are they uv activated???? Because they have an iridescent factor.. Most things that have an iridescent factor are known carcinogens....That means a cancer producing agent....Let's take a cancer producing agent and pound it into an open wound!!!!!!! I dont think so...Besides if you want the ink that you can only see when it's under a black light, that will only last 6 months before it fades away.....But dont worry the cancer may hang in there forever.....
Remember Kids!!! <b>There is no federal agency that checks out tattoo inks...</b>When a new line of ink comes out, there are no inspections or tests....They will re-call it if enough people complain......Be carefull!!!!! Hope this helps

This only applies to bad pet owners or cats that are a bit too wild and are untrainable.
Most cats clean themselves very well and know how to use a litter box. There's zero smell from them.
Some cats need baths occasionally, for various reasons. Some cats are simply too stupid to know how to use a litter box and/or don't care. Some owners don't solve those problems when they arise because they're also too stupid and/or don't care. That's where the smells come from, and it's pretty uncommon.
Think about it. Why would cats be such a massively popular pet if they smelled so bad? There's your answer.
Edit 2: This also applies to every single pet animal in existence, as well.
I can't find any evidence that this actually happened. This wikianswer states at the top of the page that "the experiment is real", and then proceeds to outline an experiment basically identical to the video, but at the bottom, the experiment it cites is actually quite different:
>"Stephenson (1967) trained adult male and female rhesus monkeys to avoid manipulating an object and then placed individual naïve animals in a cage with a trained individual of the same age and sex and the object in question. In one case, a trained male actually pulled his naïve partner away from the previously punished manipulandum during their period of interaction, whereas the other two trained males exhibited what were described as "threat facial expressions while in a fear posture" when a naïve animal approached the manipulandum. When placed alone in the cage with the novel object, naïve males that had been paired with trained males showed greatly reduced manipulation of the training object in comparison with controls. Unfortunately, training and testing were not carried out using a discrimination procedure so the nature of the transmitted information cannot be determined, but the data are of considerable interest."

I had to re-read that a few times to make sure you actually said that:
Things you eat don't take 2 days to pass if they are non-digested (hence why eating fiber makes you have to poop quickly, not two days later).
If something is going to tear through the epithelium of his stomach or intestines, he isn't going to become symptomatic until it actually tears through, meaning they'll have to go in surgically at that point. If they monitor it and make sure it doesn't get stuck, he isn't in danger of having something perforate.

some plastics ARE dissolved by stomach acid. It only needs to dissolve enough to have a sharp enough point to damage his internal lining.
