- isn't- isn't it to prevent the noodles from sticking
you know what else it prevents from sticking? your sauce to your noodles. Makes for some bad pasta yo.
Doesn't work. Mix oil with the pasta after removing the water, or just put a bit of butter in there.
Doesn't do anything. Oil and water don't mix. you can prevent the sticking by mixing the pasta while its boiling a couple of times. Adding oil after straining it WILL prevent the noodles from sticking as they dry though.
From what I've heard, this is actually kind of bad if you're making sauce with the noodles. The noodle's shape is apparently designed to catch and hold the sauce it was made for, and adding oil doesn't help.

guessing the movies that use 2 liter bottles are totally fake then?
improvised silencers are more like 'location hiders' because it redirects most of the sound forward. the guy you're shooting and hopefully hit still hears the bang, but people a good distance away (hopefully) can't tell where it came from
that's quite informative thanks
They just make it quieter. If you clap your hands as loud as you can, that's about how loud most guns are when silenced (in terms of decibels). It's a little more complex than this because silencers will also affect the tone/pitch of the noise, which can affect how loud it sounds to a human ear (a high pitched crack will sound louder to the ear than a low pitched thud, even if both are actually the same decibel reading).
There's more than one noise source from a gun though. Silencers affect the noise generated by the expanding gas shooting out of the barrel behind the bullet. Sound also comes from the supersonic boom of the bullet itself. Gas can also escape from the bolt of the gun as it starts to eject the casing, which can create another (smaller) boom. There's also piston-pop, which is the sound of the gas slamming into the piston and then escaping, which is part of a semi-automatic firearm that makes it load the next round. And of course there's the mechanical noise of the bolt of the gun slamming home as it loads the next round.
It is possible to make a "hollywood quiet" gun by using a subsonic round in a suppressed bolt-action gun. Bolt action means there's no mechanical noise or piston pop. Gas will only be leaving via the muzzle, which is suppressed. A subsonic round won't generate any sonic boom. And if you're hand loading you can optimize for minimal sound by using a fast-burning powder. Such a rifle would only have a maximum range of about 250 yards, but the little noise it made wouldn't really draw attention.
