The "This Might Be A Stupid Question, But...." Thread
« on: February 26, 2011, 11:43:34 PM »
I did one of these threads years ago, but I think a revival would be helpful.

There are some questions that I'm kinda embarrassed to ask (because "everyone" is supposed to know the answer) in life. But, I want to know.

I thought others might be in the same situation.

So, this thread is a place to safely ask your question. You can get an answer without anyone's thinking it's a stupid question. No one will laugh at you here for asking.

What kinds of things have you wanted to ask someone but were kinda embarrassed to ask before now?

To start things off, could someone explain what "a rolling stone gathers no moss" actually means? I've heard it forever. But, what, exactly, does it mean?

This Might Be A Stupid Answer But... I always interpreted that statement literally, so it's used just to highlight that the person in question is very active.

Moss wouldn't grow on a rock that moved (or to exaggerate this, rolled).
If I had some ham, I could have ham and eggs, if I had some eggs.

To me it means that you don't grow stagnant by staying in one place.

I use wash instead of soap. No one has complained to me that I smell...

In place of soap - you get one of those puffy things made out of net, wet it down, squirt on some body wash, work the net thingy between your hands until you get suds, and then scrub away. It can be less drying to the skin than soap, and you also don't end up with those little bits of soap that are too small to use.

I thought that "body wash" was just another name for soap.

I mean, you can rub bar soap on to a shower puff and wash with that too.

excellent

i use body wash on bub.  we choose a new lovely smell every few months.  the one we have at the moment is my favourite.  its a lime one that claims to have 20 fresh limes squeazed into it.  its a great way to start the day.


bub uses those puff ball things.   i always wondered  about this so still used soap.  so i can stop and just use the body wash.  lovely

thanks

That sounds fantastic! Do you eat it or wash with it? ;D

Why does my cat, who is neutered, do the spraying motion with his tail?  As in, he will actually back up to a piece of furniture, lift his tail and shake it and his booty as if he is marking his territory.  Praise heaven, nothing ever comes out so we don't have to deal with it but is this normal in male cats to still do this even if fixed?

They are much harder to rinse off properly if you only have a bath, yes!

How old was he when he was fixed? I have two male cats, one was fixed as a very young kitten (like, 3 months old) and never does it. The older one was about two when he was fixed (a rescue from a woman who hoarded animals) and still does this occasionally - just because the plumbing has been removed doesn't mean the instinct to spray is gone.
... it might frighten them.

Stargazer - if a cat is neutered when older, then the behaviour will already have imprinted.  Just think yourself lucky he's not actually spraying!
Look out...

What does fennel taste like?

(Great idea for a thread, by the way.)
