The Greatest Questions of All Time (and Answers!)

"Woah. Static electricity is not a curly haired girl's friend. Frizz + static electricity = super frizz. I look like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket! Today, I am carrying my own electrical field.

Wait... is that possible? For the human body to carry a static electricity field? I'll bet we have some kind of background level electrical field. Makes sense because we're composed of electrically charged particles. Doesn't it? I wonder if I can find some info online and blog about it."

That conversation occurred in my head just after lunch today, and I'm sad to report that my two-minute Google search on "human body electrical field" didn't return any credible answers. Consequently, this is not a blog post about the human body's possible electric field. Instead, it is a post about the The Greatest 101 Questions of All Time, as reported in the Telegraph.

Here are my top 5 (you'll have to follow the link for answers):

  • Why do identical twins have different fingerprints?
  • What is OK short for?
  • Why can’t we just fill in the ozone hole with man-made ozone?
  • What is a hiccup?
  • Does chewing gum really stay inside you for years?

What was your favorite question? Answer? Did you have a great question that was missed? Post your response in the comments section below.

...Oh, and if you know of a credible source to answer my human body electric field question, I'd be happy if you'd post that here too.
