• Why do intelligent rational people feel the need to respond to or correct the things Trump says?

    It's pretty clear that he will say or do anything as a ploy to distract or manipulate people to act in a way that ultimately benefits him. Why do world leaders try and defend themselves against his crazy statements rather than saying they won't dignify with a response or just not engage?

Why do world leaders try and defend themselves against his crazy statements rather than saying they won't dignify with a response or just not engage? Every news hour starts with something Trump, even if it's not actually important, just because it is sensational. I just don't get why people who are mature and rational feel they must acknowledge his behavior.

  • What movie is this?

    A guy is trying to win over a troubled girl and she decides to let him kiss her and she says it s bad and backs away, he gets frustrated and asks for a second try. She lets him, but says No, it s bad and walks away. He is upset because he feels she is using it as an excuse to just push him away. Do you know what movie I am trying to remember?

  • Buying used car, how to arrange inspection w/mechanic?

    How do I set it up with a private seller? Do I say "please take it to xyz shop?" and arrange payment to the shop? I imagine this is annoying to the seller to take time out of their day, is there anything I should factor into such a request? Like if it is only a $2k car, would this be ridiculous to ask them to do? Thanks.

  • Ambient noise albums?

    Looking for albums that have ambient noise. Not static or nature sounds, but sort of background conversations or workplace noises. I got a few tracks from a sound fx cd, and find it very relaxing. Conversations are indistinct, and nothing is repetitive. Anything like that that you've come across?

Ok, that happens, but it started happening so much, I looked at one of the answerers (Kasie) and they seem to just be giving short pat answers that don t seem to be engaging the question directly. Are there bots that would take a list of subject relevant remarks, and parse them out at random to every question in a category? If so, why? One of the other ones they answered was: "Im 26 years old women and im 270 pound how many calories should I eat to lose weight?" Response: wear comfortable clothes during exercise so you can feel good also you can do more."

  • Cast salt into a mold to make stone?

    I want to make a custom Himalayan salt lamp, and was wondering if I can heat salt water, let the water evaporate, and it will be as hard as those out there or not. Reason I don t just want to buy is because I want to gradient the color from red, to pink to white salt in layers. Can it be done?

  • Where did all the dia de las muerte in pop culture come from all the sudden?

    It doesn't bother me, but I used to just see painted skull motifs on one or two days of the year if that, now it seems like it's everywhere all the time. T-Shirts, mugs, internet, etc. Just curious what kicked it into pop culture high gear.

  • How long before it's acceptable for women to walk around in public in underwear?

    Started with uggs (essentially slippers), then girls started wearing pj bottoms in public, now yoga pants and active wear is worn everywhere, and I just started noticing shorts with lace fringed bottoms, which is essentially bloomers or sleepwear shorts. Seems inevitable at some point that we'll see a total de-evolution of women's wear. ... show more

  • Women tug on shirt back?

    Frequently when I am walking down a hall or similar, if I happen to be walking behind a woman, when she first becomes aware of it, often she will tug on the back of her shirt as if to ensure her lower back or butt is covered. It seems like an unconscious gesture, but I was wondering if you girls do that consciously, or unconsciously?
