      @James: And your sources are?

      As a nurse, I can assure you scientifically that shaving does not affect hair growth. Hormones affect growth (testosterone, estrogen, etc) as do genetics. Shaving may appear to affect it because when you shave the hair that you first feel as it grows back is the thickest part of the follicle, giving the impression that the hair is thicker, or that you have more of it.

    The Sushi thing isn’t entirely true. In Korea, what they call “Sushi” is what this article calls “sashimi”. Kim-bop is their equivalent to what Americans would call “Sushi” like “California Rolls”, etc. So if you go to S. Korea and order Sushi, expect pieces of raw fish on a plate. Souces; wife is Korean, first hand experience.

    I watched a demonstration at the equator with my own eyes that showed water spinning down a funnel in different directions on different sides of the equator.

      @Chris: Yes, there are many ways to make that happen, and tourist guides along the equator know them all. Bottom line, the math doesn’t back it up and there has never been a single scientifically done experiment that showed this to be the case, and quite a few that debunk the myth.

    “Sushi is not raw fish. It’s sliced raw fish.”

    Ah, I see.
