    dust is clumped together dead skin cells. Abandoned buildings are full of it because the dead skin cells that are constantly floating around in the air has had time to settle, and is not being picked up and swirled around by the motion of people walking.

    Dust comes from China on global winds and is saturated with toxic chemicals.

    Oh, you mean dust in general...not Tucson dust...sorry...

    Have you ever wondered why it seems like Seinfeld is the only show that isn't shown in a particular order in reruns? Anytime you have a show in reruns where they air the episodes back-to-back (or even multiple episodes in a row), they're always shown in order, but with Seinfeld, when you have back-to-back reruns, one episode is always like from an earlier season, and the next is from a later season, or vice-versa... with the exception of the two-parters, where in that case, both parts will be played during the slots, but still, it's always struck me as curious.

    Ok freaky... as I'm reading the above post, an episode of Seinfeld is just starting.

    TBS has been playing Seinfeld everyday at 7:00 and 7:30 for years, and one of my local channels plays back-to-back episodes at 6:00 and 6:30, and in both cases, it's the same story: the first episode will be from one season, the next from another, rather than two back-to-back episodes in chronological order, and Seinfeld's the only show I know that airs its reruns like that.

    There's a network that does that with Friends reruns, in the late-night time slot. I think it's Fox? But as far as I've seen, it's just that one network.

    I'm beginning to wonder if candy-making companies are getting bored or something, because there's certainly a lot of, "We've had it!" advertising ploys going on... first, the M&Ms characters split up (which I guess didn't work, because nothing more came out of that); then more recently Mike and Ike split up, so now the boxes have either one or the other name scribbled out and "Just" scribbled atop the name left alone; NOW apparently the inventors of Twix had a "falling out", so now the stuff is being made into two different ways (that are exactly the same) and you have to decide which is the best.

    Come to think of it, I think Snapple (**** YOU FOR RUINING MY APPLE SNAPPLE!!!) did something similar recently with one of their teas.

    Have you ever wondered how they played Oompa Loompas and Munchkins back in the days of not-too-good computer animation?

    Well the Wizard of Oz was in the days of virtually zero computer animation, lol.

    One thing I've been wondering is this...

    If you lose an appendage, it won't grow back.
    If you lose a tooth, it won't grow back (unless it's a baby tooth you lost, then grew in a bigger one).
    If you lose an arm, a leg, a finger, a toe, they won't grow back.
    So how is it if you completely pluck out a hair, it eventually grows back? I mean cutting hair is one thing (like mowing grass, it all still has its roots, it'll grow back), but to remove it completely, out of the little pores it grows from, eventually, it grows back.

    Your hair is made out of dead proteins, specifically keratin, which is the same stuff your nails are made out of. The follicle is what produces produces the hair. Your hair really isn't "rooted" the same way a plant is. Besides, you lose hairs from the the follicle all the time. It's called shedding :p

    People shouldn't ask science questions if they don't want a real answer :p

    Of course, I tried to simplify that by a lot :p

    Why are they so very short, then?

    Please tell me you are pulling a Hubert and are not being serious...

    Vincent Liu Well-Known Member

    No, I'm serious. I'm really curious how they're made so short.

    (since when did "Hubert" become a adj? :p)

    Nature. The actors who played the Munchkins in Wizard of Oz had Hypopituitary Dwarfism. They also hired some children to round out the cast.
