    So I'm trying to get heavily involved with physical fitness (weight lifting, push ups, stomach crunches, martial arts training, cardio, etc.) I'm a male in my early 20s. I weigh about 120 pounds. After doing some research about BCAA, I read all about the branch amino acids it contains, and how it can be beneficial for athletic performance and overall increased strength & energy levels. Would taking BCAA benefit me for physical fitness purposes? I'm asking this question from someone who has personal experiences with BCAA . What kind of side effects should I expect?

  • Will CDs really melt if I leave them in my car?

    So I heard that leaving CDs in a hot car can cause them to melt. Is that true? Where I live, during the summer, temperatures can be quite scorching. I wouldn't want to risk losing my music.

  • Why is my tarantula on the glass of the tank?

    I have a curly hair tarantula. Yesterday, I cleaned the tank and put in fresh substrate. Ever since I did that, my spider has climed up the glass, and has since refused to move from that spot. I gave it fresh water and attempted to feed it a cricket...but it didn't eat it. Is my spider in distress or something.

  • Are there any websites that have replaced Imdb's message boards?

    I really enjoyed the message boards on Imdb, and I was saddened the day Imdb decided to remove that section. It would be like Facebook getting rid of the comment sections. It was a place where people had the freedom to discuss movies, and to get feedback on their opinions. I lost all respect for Imdb when they decided to do that. My question is,... show more

  • Do quality coffee makers impact the overall quality of the brewed coffee?

    For a few years now, I've been using a cheapo coffee maker that I bought from a dollar store. And honestly, I think it's a great coffee maker. I mean, it doesn't seem to impact the quality of the coffee at all. Coffee is coffee...right? But then again, I see ads for these super pricey coffee makers on Amazon. Is there really any difference? show more
