Qara, I had a question I was going to ask but then I forgot it. What happened to my question?

Dilly, this is an excellent question. I hope you find the answer to be helpful and illuminating!!

I am belatedly noting that this week's Factually Deficient post answers Tohr's question about why clouds choose evil, and for the month of May, my Lies About Books feature reviewed Ellen Raskin's classic puzzle novel The Westing Game (which, lies aside, I would quite recommend to people who so like ARGs and puzzles).

Did you know that most people only use ten percent of their ears? This week's (slightly belated) Factually deficient explains how that works while answering Pixie's question about answering questions.

We can. Everyone can. Doesn't mean everyone agrees, though.

We're told it's not done and undefined and can't be solved... But if you think about it, you can find solutions and approaches and all sorts of fun stuff to do with 0. Depending on which axioms you're following, which something you can play with as well. And who knows? You might be the one to cook up a mathematical proof for it.

Do it and see what you find out! :D

Qara how can you suggest that phlogiston is not a thing? Without it how would heat ever travel through the ether?
