            Asked by Elvis Franecki in Exercise, Guinness World Records

            What’s the longest anyone has ever held a plank?

            User Avatar
            George Hood currently holds the record for longest plank at a whopping eight hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds. So yeah, just a little bit longer than your record. For women, the record is four hours, 19 minutes and 55 seconds, and it was set by Dana Glowacka in 2019. I anticipate your next question is, “How?” because an eight-hour plank sounds pretty impossible. Leading up to his record plank, Hood trained for about seven hours a day, doing 700 push-ups, 2,000 crunches, 500 toe squats, 500 band curls, 30 minutes of cardio, and four to five hours of planking. So, if you’re looking to plank for hours instead of minutes, good luck with that.

            What’s the difference between “blond” and “blonde”?

            User Avatar
            Remember foreign language classes? The masculine and feminine forms of words? Well, because the word came from French in the 17th century, that’s exactly what we’re dealing with: blonde is the feminine form of the noun, and blond is the masculine form. So, adhering to that rule, a blonde is a woman with fair hair and a blond is a man with fair hair. This seems dumb. It is. Here’s a way around it: Don’t call people their hair color. “Blond” is the more common spelling of the adjective—for example, “that person has blond hair”—and, especially in the United States, can be used to describe anyone’s hair, regardless of their gender.
            Asked by Delia Auer in Women's Rights, Feminism, Holidays and Traditions

            When did International Women’s Day start?

            User Avatar
            International Women’s Day (IWD) was born out of women’s rights activism in the early 20th century. Its roots can be traced back to a 1908 demonstration for women in New York City—15,000 women marched through the streets advocating for better pay and shorter hours in addition to the right to vote. Then, in 1909, National Women’s Day was celebrated for the first time in the U.S. as an extension of these activists’ work. National Women’s Day was observed on the last Sunday of February until 1913, but the first official IWD was held in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland on March 19, 1911. It was transferred to March 8 in 1913, and it was celebrated by the United Nations for the first time in 1975.
            Asked by Connor Lakin in Donkeys and Mules, Animal Health

            Why can't mules reproduce?

            User Avatar
            When a female horse and a male donkey mate, you get a mule, but two mules can’t mate to create another mule because of their chromosomal makeup. A mule gets 32 horse chromosomes from its mother and 31 donkey chromosomes from its father. Mules are almost always sterile because those chromosomes don’t match up well enough to create egg or sperm cells. I say “almost always” because there have been a few extremely rare instances of female mules reproducing with a male donkey or horse. But those are so rare they’re often called “miracles,” and there have been no documented instances of a male mule fathering any offspring. So, as far as we know, two mules cannot reproduce.

            Asked by Laverna Senger in Birthdays, Holidays and Traditions

            Is the "Happy Birthday" song still copyrighted?

            User Avatar
            Gone are the days of TV families having to resort to “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” around the birthday cake. “Happy Birthday to You” officially became part of the public domain in 2016 after a judge ruled in a lawsuit that music publisher Warner/Chappell didn’t actually own the copyright to the song. The ruling also mandated that Warner/Chappell return $14 million to people who had paid to use the song (a nice birthday present, if a little late). It’s still not completely clear where the song originated or if Warner/Chappell ever actually held the copyright at all, but the prevailing theory is that it was written in 1893 by Patty and Mildred Hill.

            Did blowing into Nintendo cartridges or the game console actually do anything?

            User Avatar
            No, blowing on the cartridges did not help. In fact, Nintendo actually stated in the NES Game Pak Troubleshooting: “Do not blow into your Game Paks or systems. The moisture in your breath can corrode and contaminate the pin connectors.” The reason blowing on the cartridges seemed to work for so many of us was most likely because simply removing and reinserting the cartridge gave it another shot at making a proper connection.
            Asked by Ladarius Brekke in Sanitization and Germs, Health

            Is using hand sanitizer just as good as washing your hands?

            User Avatar
            Not really. Obviously, sanitizer is better than nothing, but washing your hands is preferable in a variety of circumstances.There are certain kinds of germs that sanitizers aren’t great at getting rid of, and many people don’t use them properly (not using enough or wiping it off prematurely, for example). Hand washing is also a better option when your hands are visibly greasy or dirty, and it’s much better at getting rid of harmful chemicals like pesticides.However, hand washing isn’t always convenient, and there are so many cute and good-smelling hand sanitizers in the world, it would be a shame to forsake them entirely. If you use hand sanitizers, you want one with at least 60 percent alcohol for maximum effectiveness.

            Asked by Mandy Johnston in Politics and Government, Presidential Primary

            What is Super Tuesday?

            User Avatar
            Super Tuesday (March 2 this year) is just the name given to the date when the highest number of states hold presidential primary elections. People pay a lot of attention to it because it’s the first big primary day in each election cycle, but it’s not like those states count for extra or anything. This year, it’s even bigger because California, the most populous state, moved its primary from June to be on Super Tuesday as well, meaning more delegates are at stake than ever. The specifics of how important Super Tuesday is depends on the year and the party, but it’s always a day to watch. If you’re looking to participate in Super Tuesday, you can look up when your state holds its primaries here and check if you’re registered to vote here.

            Why are blueprints blue?

            User Avatar
            The name stems from one of the first practical methods of copying images without simply tracing them by hand. John Herschel invented a way to do it with chemicals in 1842, and the process (called cyanotype) involved turning the paper blue. You would do your drawing on a very thin piece of cloth or paper and lay it over a piece of regular paper that had been soaked in the key chemicals. Then, after being exposed to bright light, the paper would turn blue—except where the drawing was blocking the light from getting to the paper, leaving those lines white. The process was extremely popular until Xerographic copies and computers started to take over, but the name stuck. Now, many blueprints are blue in name only.

            Do fish have personalities?

            User Avatar
            Some research out of the University of Exeter suggests that fish do have personalities behind those blank stares. Tom Houslay and his research team exposed guppies to scary stuff—a fake heron (rather aptly named Grim) and a fake cichlid, a predator fish (they called him Big Al, which I appreciate more than I can put into words). The team recorded the guppies’ responses over several exposures to those scares, and not only did individual fish react differently to the fright, but they did so in the same ways time after time. The researchers thus concluded that the fish have their own, limited sort of personalities—in spite of being raised in the exact same environment, they respond to stimuli in ways that vary from fish to fish.
            Asked by Jacky Farrell in Olympics, Tokyo

            Are they canceling the 湖南福彩app下载 Olympics?

            User Avatar
            No, at least not for now. There is some speculation that this year’s games in Tokyo will be threatened by the coronavirus outbreak. Recently, the longest-serving member of the International Olympic Committee said that if the virus wasn’t in control by late May, a cancelation is a distinct possibility, but that right now, it’s business as usual. A cancelation is more likely than a postponement or a location change because of the sheer scope of the Olympics, but keep in mind that heretofore, they’ve only been canceled because of World War II in 1940 (which, spookily enough, were also set to be in Tokyo). Barring any further catastrophes, the Tokyo games are set to start July 24, 湖南福彩app下载.
            Asked by Veda Glover in Clouds, Meteorology and Weather

            What is a lenticular cloud?

            User Avatar
            Those are the clouds that look like flying saucers. I love them a lot. They’re usually formed in mountainous environments—the relatively moist air from lower in the atmosphere flows up the mountain and cools down significantly, making it condense into a cloud in that iconic saucer shape. These clouds are somewhat elusive because they’re typically short-lived and localized. As the air moves down the other side of the mountain and sinks lower in the atmosphere, it “dries out,” and the cloud disappears. So now if you see one, you’ll know what it is, but you can still pretend it’s a spaceship. I sure will.

            Why is a baker's dozen 13?

            User Avatar
            No one’s completely sure. The most common theory is that since there were harsh punishments for medieval bakers who shorted their customers, they took to throwing in an extra item in case any of them were accidentally a little light (many of them didn’t have scales, so they couldn’t tell exactly). Punishments for medieval bakers were kind of wild—ranging from fines to getting dunked in the river—so the extra caution makes a lot of sense.
            Asked by Hugh Luettgen in Poodles, Dogs, Dog Breeds

            Why are poodles groomed like that?

            User Avatar
            That very specific grooming style (the shaved parts, the floofy tufts) actually has some thought behind it. Beyond evoking the French aristocracy, that is. Poodles weren’t bred to lounge and look down on us plebs—they were bred to be retrievers. That pattern of hair is intended to speed up their swimming while keeping their vital organs and joints warm. A poodle’s coat is also pretty difficult to maintain. Since it’s so curly and thick, it gets matted easily, requiring frequent brushing. Shaving or closely clipping parts of the dog can help make that more manageable.
            Asked by Aniya Konopelski in Tik Tok, Internet

            How much money do professional TikTokers make?

            User Avatar
            As with any influencer platform, it can be hard to tell, and it varies a lot by creator and even by piece of content. It’s also difficult to parse out how much of their income is from TikTok itself and how much is from directing their massive TikTok followings to other sites, like using TikTok as a complement to their YouTube channels. As such, there’s no definitive answer, but here’s an example: Influencer Marketing Hub estimates that Loren Gray, the most-followed TikToker with around 39 million followers, makes upwards of $23,000 per post. If you’re interested in how TikTokers can make money at all, much less get rich off of doing silly dances and lip syncing, there are a few different ways. Like other influencers, one lucrative option is by doing brand deals (being paid to promote certain products) or by promoting and selling your own merchandise (“merch,” as the kids say). Another option is getting tipped for live streams. Users purchase “coins” in the app with real money, and they can use those coins to buy “virtual gifts” to send to creators while they’re watching their live streams. The gifts then get converted into “diamonds” (I know, I know, stay with me) and creators, in turn, can redeem the “diamonds” for real money. One source of income that’s not available to TikTokers, though, is ads on their videos. On YouTube, creators get a cut of the revenue generated by ads placed on their videos. TikTok has no such system.
