Please feel free to ask questions and if I know the answer I will tell you, also feel free to answer others questions!

My stupid question is

Would I be able to see nits in my sons very short hair if he had them? (He has short brown hair)?

Sorry if that lowered the tone at all but I really need to know. grin

If a tree falls down and no one is there to hear it, has it made a sound?

Do sound waves need a receiver to be heard?

I am expecting dc2 soon, scan says it's a boy. I have experience of girl babies but not boys. Do you have to pull a baby boy's foreskin back to clean it, or just leave it to clean itself? I feel really thick asking this and have never even seen a baby boy naked so don't know how stupid a question it is.

What's it like having an older father? My dp is older than me and whilst i'll be considered "young" he will not. Always wondered what is was like for the children though.

oh a real one just popped into my head. been wondering this for a while.

when flies and fleas bite you it hurts/itches at that moment. so you know they're there and will kill them (if you can catch the buggers) so i'm wondering why they have that 'warning' system to let you know you're being bitten when it could mean they will die? why hasn't evolution meant that the ones who itch didn't survive?

When is something considered to be "vintage" and therefore desirable as opposed to just plain old fashioned?

suckmabigtoe Sun 02-Jun-13 18:15:26

beano i have two boys and have never done that to clean their willies. i asked EXp at the time and he said it would hurt them as the foreskin at that age doesn't retract fully.

BeanoNoir Sun 02-Jun-13 18:16:22

Thank you. I'm a bit relieved about that tbh.

How do seedless oranges or grapes grow, if there are no seeds?

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 02-Jun-13 18:18:18

Maat once Kate Moss/Sienna Miller et al has worn something similar usually it becomes vintage and stylish rather than just old fashioned.

Beano, no theire foreskin is fused at birth and you shouldn't try to force it back. Very easy to clean. But be prepared for him to pee on you. A lot.
Ds's range was far bigger than dd's.

My Question is why can I not reason myself out of being afraid of doing something. E.g. Picking up a tarantula. Handler says it's fine, and I trust the handler, but I still can't do it.

Alisvolatpropiis - do you think they'd be kind enough to wear some of the items in my wardrobe so that I could become trendy? grin

Why pandas?
How the hell did they evolve to be so....thick?

And how is if evolutionary beneficial for Syrian hamsters to kill each other on sight? Not just territorially at all, but on neutral ground from a certain age they will kill each other, or die trying. Why?

And why do we dream?

SchrodingersFanny Sun 02-Jun-13 18:24:58

why do all hairdressers wear black? well loads do.

suckmabigtoe Sun 02-Jun-13 18:25:00

i didn't know that about syrian hamsters (hate all hamsters) good question!

suckmabigtoe Sun 02-Jun-13 18:26:06

so the hairs and hair dyes dont show on their clothes schro

Seedless oranges and grape varieties' - the seedless plants are grafted onto host plants and still grow & produce seedless fruit.

Is men's poo different from women's poo?

It alway seems smellier and messier to me. (judging only from using toilets after men, not actually looking at it close up, I'm not Gillian Mckeith)

Is it down to testosterone or something?

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 02-Jun-13 18:26:33

Maat you can but ask! If you have any luck let me know and I'll get in touch with them too! grin

Does every woman crave chocolate when their due on........and does any one else end up with horrendous wind because of it blush

mooface Sun 02-Jun-13 18:30:12

I think men's diets are generally worse than women's, fewer veg and more processed foods etc, so it comes out all minging.

mooface Sun 02-Jun-13 18:30:50

Lol foslady I think wind happens with PMT regardless of chocolate consumption grin

mooface Sun 02-Jun-13 18:32:22

Alisvolatpropiis, my Dad was 40 when I was born. He was a very active middle-aged man though, always taking us bike-riding, climbing etc.

I don't think I missed out on anything as a kid...but now he's getting on near 70 I do wish I had more time left with him sad

foslady Sun 02-Jun-13 18:33:07

Mine always seems worse (Oh good grief - can'r believe I'm admitting this.......blushblush!!!

marking place will probably think of something later
