And I'm 80% sure you're right.

The temperature of the sun causes that it shines with the greatest intensity in the yellow part of visible light spectrum.

Yeah, but is the 90% of your brain that doesnt work... or did i get something wrong?

Sushi isn't raw fish, it's sliced  raw fish.
Sushi isn't raw fish, it's sliced raw fish.

I'm pretty sure the sun isn't white.

if it wasn't white there'd be no way to create a rainbow

The sun gives of different energy photons. lets say i have 30 lasers, together they make white light but in actuality there are more red lasers than blue. that is the sun, so i think the argument that the sun is red instead of white is pretty accurate. i'm pretty sure about this
#31 to #29 - alexusapi (03/06/2013) [-]
nevermind i take that back, only stars that are less then 3500 kelvin give off more red photons, the sun is in the middle measuring 6000 kelvin meaning it gives roughly the same amount of different energized photons.

The shaving one isn't entirely true. The act of shaving stimulates your skin and encourages hair growth, it isn't very noticeable but it'll grow slightly faster for a little bit.

Actually, what you're feeling is increased coarseness (it's totally a word) caused by severing the tapered end of the hair. As it grows, the end tapers off again and that's what makes it seem like it's really thick for a couple of days and then "slows down".

Yeah, I was about to say that this "correction" is a bit shady... so shady it makes my hair stand up.

Not bad, but the sun one is wrong. The reason the sun appears yellow is because the most common wavelength emitted by it is yellow.

It's spectrum is also incomplete, rendering it impossible to be perfectly white.

so what this post is saying, is that, a dead body isnt a dead body if it is cut.... yeah sure, whatever yo usay.

No, 5 is just pointing out that Sushi refers to the rice, and Sashimi is the correct term for the dish. You wouldn't call Turkey with dressing, just dressing would you? I mean, the turkey is the main part of the dish.

But yes, it's worded very poorly.

The thing is that you only use 10% of your brain at a time ******** .

"Sushi" actually refers to the kind of rice you use: short grain sticky rice mixed with vinegar.

i dont have energy to actually look up #10, but if we really dont have certain parts of our tongue that sense different tastes, im very mad at the fact that ive only learned this in every biology class ive taken, including college A&P.

Here something for u guys. I was thinking for myself that:
If BRAIN uses 20% of our energy (entire body) for 10%thinking capacity
If you had like even 50% Thinking capacity that 100% of the entire body energy, no?

So, what if the times that we lived by now had something to do with that?
I mean, if you had to work hard, u need more power/energy in the muscles
If you are in some clever ass school, u don't really need to dig holes or something with a shovel. You use much of your energy in the brain.

That was my ideea, that times (like from 1850 to year 1978) changes our brain functionality.
My bad if i misspelled something.

Most life functions including using the brain, breathing, digesting food only consume a small portion of the energy we intake. The vast majority is used for warmth. To keep our body at a toasty 98.2 plus we're not exactly efficient with energy as we only really get 1/4 of each calorie we intake.

twinkies have so many preservatives in them that it takes an extremely long time for them to go bad..

one year, they have a shelf life of one year.

Don't even go there dude. you are so wrong, we here in Iceland can't have twinkies because the shipment would take too long and the twinkies would go bad too fast. my friends dad owns a shop that specializes in american products and he gave me this answer.
