Why are (almost) all plants green?
Why does all life on Earth have only right handed spiraling DNA?
Why are men on average taller than women?
What Is an Anyon?

Clorophyll is green.

Why do animals not exhibit distinctive characteristics that denote their origin?

"...an anyon is a type of quasiparticle that occurs only in two-dimensional systems, with properties much less restricted than fermions and bosons..." Makes sense to me.

"What do Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Maryland, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, and West Virginia borders have in common?" Don't thump at the door and run away.

Didja get anyon ya? I think they are a bit of the left over debris from matter antimatter annilihation and invisible being niether a partical or a force. Much like axions in 3 dimensions.

Plants have chosen stability over the large quantity of variable green light of our sun which is why they reflect green.

Tall guys-estrogen would have made them smaller.

Ebbie your answer is best but those states have a 'pan handle'

Our sun traces a spiral/helix in its orbit around the galaxy therfore so do the planets as seen here
Perhaps a spiral is the most efficient shape that projects time or some such nonsense.

Chlorophyll is green because it does not absorb most of the green part of the sun's visible spectrum, instead absorbing mostly light from the red and blue ends of the spectrum. As for the height of the sexes, it's most likely that a number of factors are involved, including natural selection (taller men more successful in combat in them good ol' caveman days, to put it ludicrously simply, and/or women tending to select taller men for their sexual partners), genetics, the different phases within growth spurts during and after puberty, and, quite likely, extra testosterone for blokes. Then we can talk about dietary considerations, and why the average height of all humans has increased over the centuries. Looking things up increases the chances of avoiding silly answers.

There's plenty of fun in tracking down real explanations for things. Richard Dawkins called it the magic of reality. I've always found reality to be far more fun than half-baked received wisdom or than non-explanations for stuff (aka religion).

There's plenty of fun in tracking down real explanations for things.

and plenty of pitfalls on the internet. Fakebook ain't the only place for idiots to believe other peoples' agendas. The problem is some of it is cloaked in truths for a reason..............

And we all come to the table with biases we can't see in ourselves.

They both have moustaches except Lulu.



And I didn't say anything about relying on the internet. Even less, Facebook, which I have never used. To get to the real crux of the matter usually involves delving into multiple sources. It's hard work but it's still fun.

I like the fact that Steve is an expert botanist. He should go to Mars and turn the planet green, oh its been done aleady?

never mind.

Should everyone purchase Lexus Nexus and a Congressional Library of Congress lifetime pass and footnote every post profusely?

Come to think of it a geologist like Iains should go to Mars first and see if he can get Mt. Olympus to erupt again and increase air pressure for blue green algae to take hold. DMcG might help steer a water comet to Mars?

if he has time.

"Whose coat is that jacket?" was one of my dad's stock "witty" remarks, Nigel (I must have heard him saying it five hundred times...), and he was a dyed-in-the-wool Lancashire lad.

It was Christmas Day in the workhouse
The snow was raining fast
A barefooted girl with shoes on
Stood sitting on the grass

(Another of his favourites...)

"Who remembers No Soap, Radio? "
First part..."Did you hear about the Polar Bear who cam up out of a hole in the ice and said "radio"?

Second part, after blank stares: "A polar bear was taking a shower, and called to his wife: "Hey,honey.. hand me be the soap." "No soap, honey...radio."
Then... A polar bear was driving along in his sports car when he was pulled over by police. The cop comes over and says "Let's see your license.... "No license, officer...just a radio."

Then you walk away muttering about how dense people are who don't get jokes.

"Ha yer father got a dickey bor?" (Norfolk people often use this question to poke fun at you.)
The correct answer is, "Yiss. And he want a fule ter roid him. Will yew come?"
(A 'dickey' is the Norfolk word for a donkey)

Haha, yes Rusty, Norfolk people also use 'tergither' all the time, even when you're on your own.
To explain the 'dickey' teasing question a little more, if they ask, "Do yer father ha' a dickey bor?" and one doesn't get the suggested answer above in fast, they add, "Dew, he hint got wun roit now!" which translated means, "If so, he hasn't at the moment, because his 'donkey' is standing here with me!"
