Back due to "popular" demand... (Yeah, that's how much I value you Waffles)

Why is the sky blue, when space is black? If you say that it's a reflection of the sea, why is the sea blue instead of clear?

Here are some questions: Why do fat people drive small cars? When some people don't got it, why do they still flaunt it? Why does water give a shadow when it's clear? What is your buddy icon supposed to be 000 000? Hmm? Can anybody answer these questions?

1. They do it because they are the opposite of claustrophobic. 2. Water has a shadow because tiny pieces of dust, dirt, or other particles are in the water. Water also reflects light. I could give you more answers, but I don't feel like it.
3. I would like to know that one too.

Of course you value me, without me, you wouldn't be able to get your precious little philosophical questions answered, now would you? In answer to your question, the blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue. I learned it in science, but I used google to "refresh" my memory. ;D

Okay, they do it because of peers. Trying to stay with a group of people that requires some skills that maybe you don't have makes you try and cover it up. There's your answer, if I interpreted the question right. And I didn't phone him, instead, I used this awesome high tech method, called electronic mail. Sorry to boggle your mind with such a difficult concept, but I had to mention it.

Not enough energy to fry all the fish... perhaps a little less water would do it.

Fat lady in a two piece is an infectious thought. Once one person contracts this infection, it will only spread... Muwahahaha!!!

Odd how you should be focusing on alliterations... Though I guess it's a better thought than a fat lady in a two piece bikini... Hahaha.

I just saw this really funny video on Failblog, but it is not YFOl appropriate. It's called nickname fail.
