Did Bill Nye go to jail?

   User Avatar 
   No, Bill Nye never went to jail. Some people took a satirical article about him being arrested for manufacturing drugs in his basement and turned it into a rumor about the beloved science guy. Many social media users were duped into believing the joke was fact, some going so far as to tweet #FreeBillNye, but it's just not true. The original "article" claimed he had a stripper pole right there in the lab, and that's probably the most believable part of the whole thing.

Asked in Linguistics


What is OK short for?

   User Avatar 
   The most accepted theory is that “OK” is an acronym for “oll korrect,” an intentional misspelling of “all correct.” The acronym first appeared (at least in print) in a Boston newspaper in 1839, a time when it was trendy for writers to misspell and abbreviate words. Other examples from that time include “KG” which stood for “know go” or “no go,” and “AW” for “all write” or “all right.” From there, the theory states, it was helped along by the abbreviation of President Martin Van Buren’s nickname during his campaign—”Old Kinderhook”—and telegraph operators, as they preferred the two-letter “OK” to the three-letter “yes.” But there are plenty of other theories. Some believe the phrase came from the Choctaw Native Americans, who have an expression in their language “okeh,” meaning “it is right.” The French had something similar, as well. West Africans, too, had “OK”-sounding expressions across many languages, and because of the forced
   illiteracy of many slaves, it could be that it didn’t make its way into writing until it had been co-opted by white Americans.

Asked in Psychosomatic Therapy


Is it possible to die of a broken heart?

   User Avatar 
   Yes, but it's very rare. “Broken heart syndrome,” otherwise known as stress cardiomyopathy or takotsubo cardiomyopathy, manifests itself as intense chest pain that comes on suddenly as a reaction to a surge of stress hormones. This is caused by an emotionally stressful event, such as the death of a loved one or even something positive like winning the lottery. Unlike a heart attack, there’s no evidence of blocked arteries in broken heart syndrome. Additionally, blood tests show no sign of heart damage. While many who experience broken heart syndrome make a full recovery, the condition is sometimes fatal. It has been speculated that actress Debbie Reynolds, who died one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher, and Johnny Cash, who died within months of wife, June Carter Cash, suffered from the syndrome.

Asked in Constellations, Big Dipper


How many stars are in the Big Dipper?

   User Avatar 
   There are seven stars in the Big Dipper: Dubhe, Merak, Phad, Megrez, Alioth, Mizar, and Alkaid. Dubhe and Merak, the stars on the outer side of the Big Dipper's basin, are sometimes called The Pointers because they point toward Polaris, also known as the North Star. On their own, the seven stars of the Big Dipper form an asterism (a relatively small pattern of stars), not a constellation. However, they're also part of Ursa Major, a true constellation, forming the bear's hips and tail.

What's the weirdest state symbol?

   User Avatar 
   My personal favorites are the state dinosaurs—the idea of declaring something that died millions of years ago as a symbol for your state just really sends me. Several states have adopted dinosaurs as mascots, like the Utahraptor for Utah (duh) or the Sonorasaurus for Arizona. The trend started in the '90s as the Jurassic Park craze raged, but states have added official dinosaurs as recently as 2018. Some other state dinos of note are the Hypsibema missouriensis, whose vertebrae were Missouri's first known dinosaur discovery, and the Arkansaurus fridayi, whose foot bones are the only known dinosaur bones found in Arkansas.

Asked in Flags, Beaches


What does a red flag mean on the beach?

   User Avatar 
   Beach lifeguards use flags to indicate the relative safety of the ocean, from green (least dangerous) to red (most dangerous), with blue or purple flags warning of potentially dangerous animals nearby. A single red flag usually indicates that the water is hazardous, and swimming is discouraged but still technically allowed. Unless you're a very strong swimmer, it's wise to stay out of the water when there's a red flag. Two red flags means no swimming is allowed, signifying the highest danger level.
