    What happens if you are like Robinson Crusoe and you are shipwrecked in a remote island. There is no one there except you. If that is the case, do you really need to rush to get the Covid 19 vaccine?

    Can you be a male lesbian?

    A "male-to-female" transgender at university claims that he still likes women and "identifies" as a lesbian. Whether he likes it or not, he is still biologically male, so I fail to see how he can possibly be a lesbian. Clown world.

    How many women have contracted STDs and even died due to unknowingly sleeping with bisexual men?

    I'd imagine that quite a few have caught something from their secretly bisexual husbands/boyfriends going off with other men behind their backs. Some must even have died from potentially fatal diseases such as HIV/AIDS.

    How should the story of the soldier and the weeping girl end?

    Favourite answer:

    If you intend it to be a romance, it has to have a happy ending. There is no wiggle room in the genre.

    Of course, you'll never actually write it at a minimum of 60,000 words, so it's kind of a moot point.

    What is an "Indian giver"?

    Favourite answer:

    An "Indian giver" is someone who gives you something and then demands it back.  It is a racist term, and even when I was at school we were told not to use it.  

    The Indians in question are Native Americans.  It was explained to me as coming from a fundamental misunderstanding between the early colonists and the east coast tribes they encountered.  The colonists thought that they were making treaties to OWN land.  The natives they were treating with thought the colonists were insane because no human could OWN land.  Travel across it, or use it, sure, but not OWN it.  You can see what happened next, can't you?  

    English is has lots of these racist pejorative adjectives.  See also "welshing" and anything prefaced by "dutch."

    How To Write A Book?

    I've been reading plenty of good books for years and love the stories I've read but I've been curious for a while now. How does one write a book and get it published like the popular authors of today like J.K. Rowling or Stephen King? I know they don't use type writers anymore and they use computers for that now. So tell me, if I was to write a book and all that. What are the complete list of things I need and what's the complete list of what I have to do in order to make that happen? It's kind of interesting.
