Re: Some helpful FAQs, newcomers PLEASE READ!
From time to time I'll add a link to a post in this message that I think is of profound value. I can't stress it enough, folks. Look through these FIRST to see if your question has already been answered! Don't make me come in there and slap you First of all, many of the questions you have can be answered at www.howstuffworks.com. Its not expected for you to understand everything there first, but I can almost guarantee that someone there has taken weeks to compile, edit, and publish an answer to your question that here we can only spit out a quick reply. This forum is a great place to refine your understanding of what you learn at the How Stuff Works website. Most of these are ones that struck me as important, but if there is one that you want to see, let me know and I'll give it a look-see
