I thought different people could open the different topics like entertainment history whatever........u could start 1. I put a star next to the title then we could see which ones are ongoing single question ones. The science questions I saw on this other site were horrific all manner of scientific proofs and lots of latin.......they must've all been mad scientists!!!

It's to do with the wavelengths of light absorbed and reflected but beyond that...............help my brain hurts!

Yes, that's pretty much what I was looking for. It's too late for another one, so I'll leave you two to it for the moment. Happy quizzing!

How was I to know he has the book of annoying scientific questions everyone should know but doesn't because they're a bit tedious, long winded and not necessary for a normal healthy life!!
PS I know him so he wont mind me saying this! :D :D

Name the 6 noble/inert gases.

The sky is blue because blue light has a shorter wavelength and is SCATTERED more than longer wavelengths

As a second question "What is a black hole ?"

An area of space with a v strong gravitational field from which I don't think even light can escape. It's caused by a star's collapse and the matter involved is infinitely dense.........something along those lines.

Close enough. It's where a giant star has collapsed to form an object of enormous density. Your turn.

Why would you not want "Anobium punctatum" and "Serpula lacrymans" to come to your house?

I know that the first one is a nasty little thing that eats wood so I presume the other is too.

The firtst one is often (and not totally correctly) known as woodworm. Since anything containing the start letters "lacry" has something to do with losing moisture ("crying") I would hazard the guess that it is some form of "dry rot". More than that I can't do without cheating.
