  • What is the big diet difference between fructose, glucose, sucrose & HFCS, ?

    I know sucrose & fructose are both simple sugars but I dont get how theyre actually different. I also dont really understand the dietary significance behind all of these different classifications? Like, I know that complex sugars are worse than simple ones, but I dont really know WHY & even my medical profs in college havent been able to explain it. I'd really like to understand please.

  • Why does dog gas smell so bad?

    Not trolling, genuinely curious. Why does it smell so much worse when a dog passes gas than when a human does? Do their shorter digestive systems just build up more methane or something?

  • What does normal 'tired' feel like?

    If others can't answer this from lack of my perspective I understand, but I'm very curious what to expect. I have narcolepsy and, while I'm functional after being on my medication for a decent while, I'm still not quite to the 'normal' level yet (a cording to my doctor). So I'm curious, when will I know I'm normal? How tired is an acceptable amount? How can I tell? What can I expect?

  • Do trolls realize we can change our usernames?

    I've had it happen a once in the past where some troll decided they just didn't like me & would stalk every single answer & question I posted, blatantly commenting that regardless of my reply they were reporting me for no reason other than their (self admitted, unwarranted, hatred). It was to the point they would even state in every comment how much they planned to harass me until I, verbatim, "abandoned the platform entirely."

    Do these people realize we can just change our usernames and, from then on, no longer have to deal with them ever?

    (for further proof, my questions are never assaulted after I change my UN, only before, so it was clearly the person just refreshing my profile rather than anyone actually reacting to my questions themselves).

  • What's your opinion on people watching videogame youtubers?

    I know a lot of people like them and a lot dislike them, but I'm in-between.

    Personally, I watch them when I want to know if a game is worth purchasing first-hand or if I can't afford a game but still want to experience the story. However, some people (mostly kids) take it too far and get addicted to the content. I'm also aware some people don't see a point in it at all. What do you think?

  • Why do FAFSA rewards change sometimes?

    Nothing about my application has changed, but for some reason this year my spring semester refund is double what it usually is. I'm certainly not complaining, but I'm curious why it happened.

  • Liberals & democrats only; what sexualities do you actually consider valid?

    For context, I'm not liberal or conservative, and I'm only asking out of curiosity. 

    Personally I understand straight, gay/lesbian, bi/pan, and ace, but some people seem to identify with terms so incredibly specific its wild. Most of the other sexualities I've heard of sound like they could just fit under one of those I listed above, and the rest just being personal preference. What's your opinion? If there's others you stand by could you please explain why to me? 

  • Why do my sinuses get better with steam?

    I have chronic issues with sinus pressure on the left side of my face to the point that I can often barely pass air through my left nostril, and have grown used to the pressure sensation in the area. Steam is the only thing that seems to help when it gets particularly bad, but I'm curious why steam helps exactly. What does steam do to the sinuses to make them react like that?

  • How do I stop being afraid of the dark?

    I'm a 21 year old guy, but this is a recently developed phobia and I have a good reason for it.

    I have narcolepsy & one of the symptoms of it is night time hallucinations. I grew up with them all of my life and if became normal for me to see/hear things; before my diagnosis I thought everyone else experienced that every night as well.

    Since getting on medication to treat my narcolepsy I no longer have the hallucinations, and in an odd way that has made me afraid of the dark. It's become ingrained in my head that there's other creatures in the room (I know there aren't actually, but it's the mindset I'm used to & thinking that way has proven to be a near-impossible habit to break). The feeling things/people are in my room persists, but now I feel like I just can't see where they are, like they're hiding or waiting to jump out.

    I know thinking this way is irrational, but irrational fear one can't control is the very definition of a phobia.

    What can I do to fix this? I've been free of the hallucinations for 2 years now and the phobia still hasn't gone away; am I just doomed to always be a grown man afraid of the dark?

  • Is this common for dogs?

    My dog does this very cute thing where she places her front legs over your shoulders, sits on your lap, and presses her torso against yours to imitate a hug. It's adorable and I love it very much, but I've never seen or heard of another doing this before.

    Is this odd/uncommon and special to her? Or is it relatively normal and I just happened to not encounter another dog that does it by chance alone?

  • How to kick out an alcoholic?

    As a college student I'm still living at home (planning to move out in the next year). My mother's boyfriend's son is 26 (5 years older than me) & very kind. He's been allowed to crash on our couch plenty of times in the past, but recently he's stopped helping around the house to compensate and has kept himself wasted for over a week straight. No one wants him here anymore and we all plan to politely confront him later today with an intervention, but none of us have any experience kicking someone out before. He's always been nice, so we're unsure how to tell him we want him out without coming across as cruel. 

    What should we say? How do you politely kick someone out?

    (for reference, he is absolutely an alcoholic & has been for years, we're kicking him out because of how bad it's gotten but not for the alcohol itself, he's been allowed to stay here drunk plenty of times before)

  • How do I get my partner to understand that late-night sex isn't an option for me?

    We have a very healthy sex life and she never pressures me or anything, but she gets very pouty if I say no. The problem is, I'm not saying no because I don't want sex, I'm saying no because I'm narcoleptic & have to take a special medicine that puts me into a very deep sleep at night. She knows I have narcolepsy but doesn't seem to understand that waking me up makes me nauseous/confused/dizzy as a side effect of the medicine. 

    How do I get her to understand? 

    (for context, I go to bed at 10 pm & wake up at 6 am with a brief half hour of being awake at 1:30 am to take my second dose. Being intimate during this half hour isn't an option since it'd result in me either throwing up or falling asleep on her)

  • What has a lot of flavor but not a lot of calories?

    I'm trying to lose weight and my biggest downfall isn't hunger, healthy eating, or large portions. My issue is just that I have a tendency to crave flavor throughout the day, which makes me prone to snacking. Is there anything I can eat that doesn't have many calories but does have enough flavor to satisfy my nonspecific cravings?

    The best example I currently know of is pickles, but I'm starting to get sick of them as a snack

  • How does 'Honey' make its money?

    this isn't for the literal physical sweetener honey, if u comment abt that you'll be reported as a troll.

    I'm curious about the popular browser app Honey that applies discount codes wherever u shop online. Where do they earn money from? There has to be SOME income, but its a free app, so where does it come from?
