stuff like pollock^^^ bothers me immensely, because i cant figure out whether im missing something or not.

Pollock and other "creative" artists can be appreciated after having taken Mags advice about smoking good pot. Without a psychedelic influence, that is a bunch of paint splatters. Skillfully and artistically splattered no doubt

The interior walls of my small spray booth, having random deposits of various colors, might have been worthy of display in an art museum. The work I did at my spray booth was skillful, but not particularly artistic.

That sounds fun.

Myriad thin stripes of paint, too.

why does water on my skin make me slip on the bathroom floor but that same water on my skin makes it hard to pull on my long underwear?

Here are differences between science and art. Science is about a logical approach to explain things. Art is about aesthetics and perspectives regardless if they are illogical or not. The goal of science is to prove and disprove thing. The goal of art is to make a reflection of a person's experiences, skills, and knowledge who made art, and then an audience makes their own thoughts about that person's art.

What I find interesting is when people do not understand the difference between artists and artisans.

Why do people make conscious and conscience sound exactly the same? It doesn't seem right to me logically. The logical conclusion would be to make those 2 words sound different to prevent people being confused when they are being said.

Why do words peers, seers, queers, beers, and sheers have an S at the end of them that implies they are plural while the word deers is not considered formal English? Did a lazy person not make the word deers become a plural word to indicate more than one deer for formal English? I prefer saying deers instead of deer to mean more than one deer. Because it seems like a logical approach rather than an intellectually lazy and disorganized one by only saying deer.

Why haven't people improved the formal English language yet? It's flawed logically.

Did a female spider accidentally kill her male mate thinking he was non-spider food, and that is how black widows first existed? Or was a female spider so desperate for food when having sex, then started eating her male mate for sustenance, and that's how black widows were invented? The things species do for survival is interesting...

Why do they say African-American, but not German-American, Scottish-American, French-American, and so forth?

Because water creates a gap between your skin's grip on the floor and the floor itself. So, water makes your skin have a hard time gripping onto surfaces to prevent slippage. Water makes your clothes "stick" on you. Thereby, making it harder to make clothes move when your body is wet with water.

why did humans take the chimp route of fouling our nest, and not the orang utan route of sustain ibility?

Humans are omnivorous creatures. They are semi-carnivorous. Carnivorous creatures have a tendency to be destructive predators for survival. Survival is why humans chose the destructive route. They chose to survive by destructively killing for self-defense rather than die by being killed. It is why humans have lived this long without being extinct. Being destructive is a way of showing power, too.

why isnt the past tense of

be-lieve

be-left?
Because they BELIEVED the word believed would suffice.  :grin:

why do some birds hop when theyre on the ground, and other birds walk?
Because that bird booty is too heavily thicc to let them hop and fly like other birds. So, they just walk. The other ones hop on grounds because they don't have to walk since their flying lets them travel.

i am going to have to think about these.

especially the bird walking/hopping thing

Likely a function of leg length. Or maybe the little peeper birds really are walking, but their little legs are going deedle-deedle-deedle like small dog's legs, and one can't tell? Maybe the little peeper birds don't have knees on those stubby little legs.

TheFightSong

Walking birds usually do not fly in the air because evolution caused them to be too heavy from bodies weighing them down, especially ones with legs and knees. Flying birds can fly more easily because they do not have knees, legs, and too much body weight pulling them down because of gravity.

no no not the ratites

crows walk, in preference to hopping.

ravens walk. not all icterids, because starlings hop, i believe

robins tend to hop, as do most passerines.
