Answering all the questions you never knew you had (and some you did).
Why do a girl’s nipples do the opposite of a guy’s penis when it’s cold?
It’s all about keeping warm. In the case of nips (our favorite Encyclopedia Brown mystery, by the way), the pop is caused by tiny muscles contracting to trap heat and raise any hairs she has to add warmth. Unfortunately, guys don’t have those same sorts of muscles downstairs. Says anatomy expert Derek Walton: “Your buddy has to tuck in close so he can be ready to come out and play for those warm nights.” Tag, you’re it, wiener!
What should I do if I see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?
Just let nature take its course. “Plants often rely on animals to ingest their seeds and disperse them when nature calls,” says World Wildlife Fund scientist Eric Dinerstein. Remember that the next time you smell a flower—it likely grew from a squirrel’s turd.
If you were born on a boat in international waters, what nationality are you?
“The nationality of the parent is the determining factor,” according to José Alvarez, an international law professor at New York University. So even if you were born on the ocean, if your folks are French, so are you. Sorry.
4 BILLION = Number of videos viewed on YouTube every day. Antoine Dodson never gets old!
20 = Percentage of adults who plan on having a drink on St. Patrick’s Day. Pathetic!
