Can sour cream go bad? If so, how can you tell? Please anser soon, because I have an unopened container in the back of my refrigerator with an expiration date of April 1996.

Say you're at a baseball game at home, and the visiting team is up to bat. The batter hits a long line drive heading into the stands: a home run!

Why do people like to pop bubble wrap so much?

If the Earth were to suddenly stop revolving, what would happen to a 200-pound man standing in an open area? How far would he slide?

Why is it that humans can move their eyes in opposite directions toward the nose, but not away from the nose?
-C.M. of Rosenberg, Tex.
