Q) What are Zombie Debts?
March 01, 2008: Renee Jones
A) Like zombies, ancient debts may rise again to haunt consumers. Legal experts and consumer credit counselors say these debts raise, a number of troubling issues that aren't currently addressed by fair debt collection laws.
How should consumers respond when called about debts they don't recognize? If they verbally acknowledge a debt that is time-barred, does that resurrect the debt and start the clock ticking anew on the statute of limitations (known in the industry as re-aging a debt)? If zombie debt can potentially rise at any time, how long should consumers keep documentation about payment of old debts?
There's all sorts of problems with the older debts.
Nobody should be permitted to collect on a debt unless they have the basic information about the debt. That's the problem with the debt buyer industry.
Consumers who make payments on a time-barred debt and subsequently default on the payment plan may unknowingly re-age the debt. You're better off ignoring a call about an ancient debt. It's best to send them a letter saying I don't recognize this or please verify it. A certain amount of minimum information about the debt should be transferred with the debt, including the date of service, the original creditor, the identity of the consumer and information about the original credit arrangements.
NOTE: If they insist the debt is yours, make them give you a photocopy of your signature on the contract, you even sign one of these for credit cards. Also make them provide a detail list of all charges with dates, places, and amounts. Many consumers are fighting back. Even if your Identity was stolen you have rights, you can sue them. Another way is to take them to small claims court, in most states lawyers don’t go to these only the plaintiff and defendant.

March 02, 2008: Babs Jeller.

Q) Why does my boyfriend’s dog drag his butt across my rug?
March 03, 2008: Ms. Pissed Off.
A) To clean it or scratch it.

Q) How fast can a rattlesnake strike?
March 04, 2008: Peter.
A) The western USA varieties are extremely quick. They range from 45 mph to 175 mph. To put this in perspective the Western Diamondback Rattler grows up to about seven feet in length. In a fully coiled position it can strike up to half its full body length and return to a coiled striking position in less than a ¼ of second.

The Professor said...

Q) Is it true that many rattlesnakes don’t always inject venom?
March 05, 2008: Clair.
A) Yes for example the Western Diamondback injects venom an average of 3 out of 4 times it bites. Many varieties of snakes need to conserve their venom for hunting and eating. Although I wouldn’t want to take that 25% chance if bitten that no venom was injected.

The Professor said...

Q) I herd new born venomous baby snakes are more deadly than full grown snakes, is this true?
March 06, 2008: Jane M.
A) Yes because baby snakes, such as rattlers haven’t learn to control dispensing their venom, so the person bitten gets a full does.

The Professor said...

Q) Are there any known repellents to prevent snakes?
March 07, 2008: A devoted American Camper.
A) Unfortunately no. There have been many myths about a variety of repellents. Over the years various home remedies have been suggested to repel snakes, such as placing a horsehair rope around your sleeping bag or sprinkling sulfur dust or scattering mothballs around the area to be protected. Unfortunately none of these remedies work. Despite what you may hear, there are no plants that repel snakes. Currently several commercially available chemical snake repellents are on the market, but they have not proven to be sufficiently effective to warrant any recommendations by such groups as The National Park Service. The military has been working on this problem since WWII.

Q) Read your q-n-a on snakes. Are there any effective methods for keeping snakes out of my yard?
March 08, 2008: Larry Grimes.
A) Yes avoid rock gardens, keep weeds and grass cut short, avoid water ponds and birdbaths. In places like Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Georgia avoid swimming pools. There are commercial grade anti snake fences but they are expensive. They may be worth investing in if you live in a snake area and have children or pets.

The Professor said...

Q) I have herd that if you find a dead rattlesnake and pick it up it can still bite you. Is this true?
March 09, 2008: Billy Marshall.
A) Yes.

The Professor said...

Q) What are the fastest striking snakes in the world?
March 10, 2008: Ted Brady.
A) The Black Mamba is the fastest striking snake followed by a variety of western U.S. rattlesnakes, then the Puff Adder. All are poisonous. Don’t touch any snake. Don’t try and kill or pick up any snake, even non-venomous snakes will bite.

Q) What is the Mongolian Death Worm?
March 11, 2008: Renee Farthersome.
A) It s a cryptid reported to exist in the Gobi Desert. It is generally considered a cryptozoological creature, one whose sightings and reports are disputed or unconfirmed. It is described as a fat, bright red worm, 2 to 5 feet long. The local name is allghoi (or orghoi) khorkhoi (хорхой) which means "blood filled intestine worm," because it is reported to look like the intestine of a cow. There are a number of extraordinary claims by Mongolian locals such as the ability of the worm to spew forth a yellow poison that is lethal on contact, and its purported ability to kill at a distance by means of electric discharge. However, there are no known reliable sightings. Some believe the worm is actually a reptile, legless lizard, or arthropod because of the dry climate in which it lives. The color yellow is said to attract the worm. There have bee several expeditions to Mongolia in an attempt to find the creature but none have turned up any proof of its existence.

Q) What exactly is your funny bone and how did it get that name?
March 12, 2008: Richard Drew.
A) All of us probably have hit the inside of our elbow in just the right spot and felt a tingling or prickly kind of dull pain? That's your funny bone! It doesn't really hurt as much as it feels weird. The "funny bone" got its nickname because of that funny feeling you get after you hit it. But your funny bone isn't actually a bone at all. Running down the inside part of your elbow is a nerve called the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve controls feeling in your fourth and fifth fingers. It's also one of the nerves that controls the movement of your wrist. You get that funny feeling when the ulnar nerve is bumped against the humerus (say: hyoo-muh-rus), the long bone that starts at your elbow and goes up to your shoulder. Tapping your funny bone doesn't do any damage to your elbow, arm, or ulnar nerve. But it sure feels strange!

Q) How can I make my ass look smaller in picture Photos?
March 13, 2008: No Name Given.
A) Well, Um, Uh, my advice would be that if you wanted to make your ass look smaller, have a picture taken with you sitting in the bucket of a front end loader.

Q) What’s the real difference if any between alligators and crocodiles, and are both found in the USA?
March 14, 2008: Donna Helms.
A) Both are now found in the USA. The primary difference is an Alligator has a rounded U-shaped jaw whereby a crocodile has a more pointed snout and their 4th tooth on both sides of the lower jaw is always exposed.
Alligators in the US live only in fresh water including swamps, lakes, canals, rivers, and marshes. They are found in the southeastern part of the US but can be found as far west as eastern Texas.
Crocodiles in the US are found in salt water or mango type swamps on the edge of salt water. They can only be found in southern Florida, and most are in and around the St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant in Homestead Florida.
Both are reptiles and swallow their prey whole. They grab and roll taking their kill underwater.
Alligators, once an endangered species are now a real problem in Florida. They are becoming a threat to man and are often found in both public and private swimming pools. The problem lies in they are submerged most of the time so if you jump in your pool without looking you end up a meal. Females are about 8 feet long but males are twice there size at 15 feet and males can weight up to 1,000 pounds.
Crocodiles go back to the dinosaur age of over 200 million years ago. There has been little change in their evolution. They are a survivor, and like most things man is their biggest enemy.

Q) Are there any drugs that will enlarge my Penis?
March 15, 2008: RW Baker.
A) NO. All this is bullshit and hype. Avoid taking these idiot drugs they can cause serious side effects and health problems.

Q) Are there any drugs that will enlarge my boobs?
March 14, 2008: Betty Cares.
A) Great name. NO. Although some women have tried estrogen pills this sends an on/off switch to the body and can cause problems. It will however, in most cases grow boobs for men. Women who have tried estrogen also may encounter larger nipples, often times shaped like saucers but it will not make the breasts any bigger. The only solution is cosmetic surgery.

Q) What do you think about Food TV shows?
March 17, 2008: Joan Carson.
A) I do on occasion watch Emeril Live. All the TV Food shows share the same basic problems. In most cases they are useless for the average home cook. Here is a list that makes them bad:
--- The food processor used by almost all these cooking shows is very expensive. Try using a regular blender or avoid that item.
--- I don’t know of any regular kitchen in America that has a built-in deep fryer. Either use a pot or a wok and show how it would be done in a real kitchen at home or don’t do it.
--- Deserts. America is fat enough, we don’t need to see how to make deserts and force the idea and concept that we should eat one with every meal.
--- Ice Cream. I don’t know of anyone who owns his or her own ice cream maker. Get real Emeril, buy ice cream from the store like everyone else.
--- The same goes for other kitchen gadgets and appliances. These so-called cooking gadgets shown on most cooking shows are very costly and who the hell has room to store all these widgets?
--- Those cooking pots that Emeril uses, like many other chefs are heavy metal cast iron with ceramic coatings. They too are very expensive. Show how to cook with a standard cast iron crock-pot, metal frying pan, or wok like the rest of us or piss off.
--- Stop trying to impress us with expensive cooking ingredients like caviar, truffles, lobster, etc. Most real Americans watching these shows can’t afford any of these items.
--- If I want music I will listen to music or watch American Idol. People don’t turn on TV cooking shows to watch a bunch of idiots play music. The public would benefit more from real down to earth cooking with less bullshit.
--- On doing those outdoor BBQ’s the same applies. Try using a realistic grill. Those BBQ Grilles used on shows like Bobby Flay cost a fortune. Cook like real Americans or get off my TV.

Q) What’s the difference between Tequila and Mescal?
March 18, 2008: Jerome Washington

Q) What’s the difference between Contrails and Cemtrails, if any?
March 19, 2008: Luscious Sandy.
A) A common confusion.
Contrails are the exhaust of an aircraft, it leaves a trail in the sky and the trail rapidly dissipates. With chemtrails, they initially look identical to contrails, but rather than the trail dissipating, the trail expands and then starts to look like a cloud. In other words, the plane has control over the chemicals it is releasing. This has led to many conspiracy theories, which the so-called Tin Foil Hat types like to say. Some believe that we are being mind controlled by dumping chemicals in the atmosphere, while others think chemtrails are a form of weather control.

Q) What is your opinion on teens today getting cosmetic surgery?
March 20, 2008: Cindy Shaws.
A) Parents have reached a new level of stupidity. I would endorse it if the parents can afford it, and the child has a legitimate need such as from a birth defect or accident. But otherwise parents are just turning their children into artificial human beings and sex objects.

Q) Is there a technical or scientific name for seeds of life from aliens (other life forms)?
March 21, 2008: Joan Packard.
A) Yes it is called Panspermia. This simple refers to we are all aliens or our evolution was or is altered by Alien life forms. In the 1970s, two scientist named Wickramasinghe and Hoyle found what they say are traces of life in the dust around distant stars. The duo then broadened the ‘Panspermia Theory,’ arguing that a continual rain of life-altering stuff from space including germs that arrive in cycles related to solar activity has affected the course of evolution on earth. The seeds, they say, are still coming.

Q) I was told that the brain has several types of memory, is this true?
March 22, 2008: Bud Boone.
A) Yes, that is true. The brain is like a complex computer and stores memory in several layers or types, which are:
(1) Short Term Memory – This type of memory serves us best when we are young. As we get older our short term memory fades and our long-term memory increases. An example of short-term memory loss that we have all experienced is “Where did I put my car keys?”
(2) Long Term Memory – This is what you could refer to as intelligence. It is the sum of everything we have learned and all of our life’s experiences. As we get older, we begin to remember things, such as childhood memories, often in detail while others are just a glimpse. But in normal adult life these are mostly forgotten. The prime reason is that we are too preoccupied with our daily life and activities. But as we get older things are like when we were young, more simplistic.
(3) Recessed Memory – Often times referred to as Regressed Memory. These are memories that the brain stores that are scary or frighten us, especially as a child. The best examples of these are: when a child grows up they will remember that an adult molested them; or a loved one dies and you can’t even remember the sound of their voice or what they looked like.

Q) What’s the difference between Dark Matter and Anti Matter?
March 23, 2008: Tim Wheats.
A) Here is your answer:
⇒Dark Matter for all intensive discussion is still theoretical because no one has proven it actually exists. There are two theories of what Dark Matter is:
(1) Some scientists think Dark Matter is in the form of massive objects, such as black holes, that hang out around galaxies unseen.
(2) Other scientists believe Dark Matter to be subatomic particles that rarely interact with ordinary matter.
⇒ Anti Matter on the other hand has been proven to exist. The use of the word ‘anti’ refers to what is actually is, the opposite of matter. Matter is what we are all made of. It is sort of positive and negative in electricity, one must exist to sustain the other to equal things out. Another way to look at it is anti You, Look at yourself in the mirror, if that person existed it would be in an anti matter universe. NASA is all ready working on a how to construct a spacecraft that would run on anti matter using Einstein’s famous theory of E=MC2 meaning that when anti matter collides with matter it annihilates one another thus pushing the spacecraft well beyond the speed of light.

Q) What really is better for a baby, manufactured baby foods, organic packaged baby foods, or made at home baby foods?
March 25, 2008: Joann Dunn.
A) Actually it is a preference of choice. But keep these important facts in mind when deciding:
1) The most important thing is to breasts feed your child for a minimum of 3 months, preferably for 6 months.
2) Once baby foods are started it is very important to feed the child a complete variety of foods. This means a wide range of fruits and vegetables.
3) All studies show that organic foods are no better than standard packaged baby food, The only difference is that organic baby foods are free from any pesticides. They are however, very expensive.
4) Home made baby foods are Ok, but not really practical. The problem is parents often don’t feed the baby a well balanced diet. Also they often do not remove all the chunks from the food. Baby’s can choke on food easily. The other problem is storage and packaging at home. Store purchased foods come in vacuum tight sanitized jars sealed for freshness.

Q) What does the numbers listed on every bag of fertilizer mean?
Example: 20-20-20, 16-4-8, 10-10-10
March 27, 2008: Glenda Johns
A) The first number, which represents nitrogen, one of the most important nutrients for a plant's good health. Nitrogen is responsible for the production of chlorophyll. Without it, plants can't produce their own food. If they don't have enough nitrogen, their foliage will take on an overall yellow tint.
The second number indicates phosphorus. Another significant nutrient, phosphorus creates abundant roots, flowers and fruits. A plant with a phosphorus deficiency will turn a slightly purplish color.
The last number stands for potassium, a nutrient that determines the quality of a plant’s flowers and fruits and how well it withstands heat, cold, insect infestation and disease. Without potassium, the edges of a plant’s leaves will begin to turn brown.
Note: The elements should be applied in the following order: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These three elements, along with calcium, sulfur and magnesium, are known as macronutrients. Plants with little calcium develop young leaves with hooked ends. If they're lacking in magnesium, the leaves turn yellow with green veins. These macronutrients are needed in greater quantities than micronutrients or trace elements: iron, copper, manganese, boron, zinc, molybdenum and chlorine.

Q) What exactly is inverted nipples?
March 28, 2008: Shelly Spector.
A) Some women once their breasts have matured and developed have what appears to be flat nipples or nipples that grow inwards, thus ‘Inverted Nipples.’ There is now a cosmetic surgery technique, know as inverted nipple surgery that allows the nipples to be normal.

Q) What does it mean to be Panty F**ked?
March 29, 2008: Joan Spinken.
A) It has a few meanings but they are all basically related.
** Originally it referred to having sex with a girl without her getting undressed. This occurred back when women wore skirts, dresses, or even something like a cheerleader outfit. The woman would simply raise her skirt, push her panties to one side, and the man inserts his penis and you have sex. Generally the man would only undo his pants and pull out his penis. This worked well for sex in a car, which I have used this technique many times myself when I was young.
** Later on it was known to be a sexual fetish, whereby the woman would get undressed but leave her panties on and the man would still push them to the side and insert his penis and they had sex. This further evolved when women started wearing pantyhose or panties with slits in them for sexual penetration without getting undressed. Really great for that quick office encounter.
** It also refers to a Fetish where the man ejaculates onto a women’s panties or pantyhose while she is wearing them.

Q) I heard my neighbor referred to as a daytime whore. What exactly does that mean?
March 31, 2008: Jeanie Smyth.
A) Generally refers to a housewife bored with her husband and their relationship. So she goes out and has casual affairs (sex) during the daytime while the husband is at work. You most likely have at least one living in your neighborhood. Look for someone who gets all dressed up and looks like she is going to a cocktail party but during the daytime, and she is going out alone, i.e. while her husband is at work. This is a lot more commonplace than you may think. America is not alone in this,. I have seen it in Europe and Asia.
