An aurora is a fancy light show in the sky that appears when the atmosphere is thin (as far as I know). I don’t know how it’s related to the sun’s movement.

A mirage appears in flat, hot places like deserts as an illusion, caused by heat waves (I think).

Because our shadow is blocking it. Note: even I don’t think that one is right.


Clouds hit each other causing an impact that makes sound and emits electronic energy. My science is very questionable on these, but I like making it up.

Ball shaped lightning is regular lightning in ball-form.

I didn’t know it did!

Uh... because magic.

Because the atmosphere.

Because the sun.

Because when the sun hits moisture in the air, it creates them.

A rainbow is in a full arch shape.

Because oil is magic.

The surface has a different density? Fish get stuck.

They are farther from the earth’s core.

I have never seen a blackboard reflect light.

See previous answer.

Because the moon.

I have no idea.

Ooh, I learned this! Something about chemistry...

By dropping water.

very tiny glass threads. I don’t know how they work.

I don’t know. This is making me feel stupid.

That they can remember shapes.

I don’t know.

They’re both... very strong...

The water brings it’s center of gravity to a different location.

I wasn’t aware that they did spin when exposed. So I don’t know.


it is less dense.

The propellor lifts it. To keep it upright.

They detect smoke and are loud.

Because it has a setting that makes it stop.


More magic.

...I am a very scientific person, in case you guys didn’t know.

A spastic horse with cerebellar hypoplasia breaks into your home and threatens your family. You've stubbed your toes and twisted your left ankle, the phone is ringing - what do you do?

AMfuckingA1540 karma

Answer the phone, tell the horse "it's for you!" and then tranquilize it while it's distracted.

i_want_in239 karma

Motherfucker!!! ok its on. What is your favorite type of Asian food? Have you heard the joke that had a horse, a duck and a raper? Also, why the fuck do you people like Nuttela so much?

AMfuckingA402 karma

I like pad thai. Though is Indian counts, I'll go with that. I have not heard that joke! Because nutella is fucking delicious crack in a jar.

Murineaidmvh476 karma

Would you rather be pregnant with a bowling ball (and birth it under normal circumstances) or individually strangle a basket of miscellaneous cute baby animals?

AMfuckingA722 karma

Pregnant with the bowling ball :(

ladystetson411 karma

Would you rather be eaten by a sandwich or driven by a car?

AMfuckingA589 karma

Driven by a car! Being eaten would be awful.

wdnlng402 karma

can I borrow a feeling?

AMfuckingA648 karma

Yes. Could you lend me a jar of love?

jebigsy347 karma

if you had to chose; out of your mom and your dad which one would you do? You get the choice between a blindfold and a condom. GO

AMfuckingA801 karma

Oh Lord. Alright, mom with a blindfold. Simply because the blindfold would make me feel slightly less utterly disgusting and because I am a girl who would rather not get pregnant with her own father's child.

kactus602 karma

You get me all hot an bothered

AMfuckingA938 karma


ladystetson338 karma

what are you going to do if this gets to the front page and then everyone starts flooding you with questions?

AMfuckingA683 karma

Keep answering em!

captgbv328 karma

Should I shave my balls?

AMfuckingA666 karma

I think that's ultimately a personal decision, but if you are looking for my perspective as a girl, I'd say a little trimming is never amiss.

[deleted]321 karma

What is the motherfucking time?

What is your favorite motherfucking movie?

Who the fuck do you think you are?

What the fuck are motherfucking earlobes for?

Do you own any motherfucking animals?

AMfuckingA490 karma

The motherfucking time is 3:55pm EST

My motherfucking favorite movie was discussed earlier, but I ended up going with Heathers.

I fucking think I'm myself.

I have no fucking idea what earlobes are for. Evolution made ears fucking look like that.

I own a motherfucking dog

NOTE: dog does not actually fuck it's mother (or anyone else's).

DoubleBassPlease318 karma

AMfuckingA648 karma

Not at the moment! I think guys think girls have reservations about talking about this, but really we're just trying not to gross them out.

wdnlng267 karma

Become a dolphin or an astronaut

AMfuckingA336 karma



Google? Is that you?

PaperStreetSoap239 karma

If you were a hotdog, would you eat yourself? I know I would.

AMfuckingA53 karma

If I were a hotdog, I would not be sentient, nor would I have a mouth. So no.

Who is Spain? Why is Hitler? When is right?

pamplemouse193 karma

What is the largest object you've ever inserted inside yourself? What's the largest object you think would probably fit?

AMfuckingA586 karma

I assume you mean, down there, so sadly I have never inserted anything. But I imagine anything the size of a baby could fit, since y'know... nature.

Andyman_man184 karma

Why is your AMA so much better then mine?

Now I'm sure that's not true!

How do magnets work?

SneakyArab198 karma

Why did you misspell MAGNETS?

AMfuckingA24 karma

It's a conspiracy.

Bov11167 karma

You’re in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on its back. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can’t, not without your help. But you’re not helping. Why is that?

AMfuckingA49 karma

I am not an android.

porourke27148 karma

Coke or Pepsi? Why?

AMfuckingA528 karma

Dr Pepper. Because it tastes the best.

EDIT: for you, they_trolling ;)

TKJ136 karma

Have you seen Firefly? Is it not the best sci-fi TV series ever?!

AMfuckingA211 karma

I have!!! And I agree with you. Love it.

waffles69124 karma

should my wiener have a first name?

AMfuckingA200 karma

In my personal opinion, probably not. Does it already have a last name?

idontusejelly106 karma

Can you please describe your ideal mustache in 500 words or more?

AMfuckingA21 karma

My ideal mustache would not take 500 words to describe, so no. I am partial to handlebar mustaches though.

therealandrew98 karma

The Probability of exactly 4 people out of 10 having a red ticket at a charity ball is approximately 0.2508. What is the probability, as a percentage, of a random person having a red ticket? (Hint: red or not red).

AMfuckingA186 karma

Is the random person at the charity ball as well? Because I feel like that would be important. Otherwise it's inconclusive, as your first sample was all people from the charity ball.

therealandrew209 karma

This is a binomial distribution

This is the reverse of the usual sort of question, in which you are given the individual probability, and have to calculate the multiple probabilities.

If the probability of a single person having a red ticket is p, then the probability of not having a red ticket is (1 - p), which I shall call q .

The sample size is 10, so the probabilities of 0, 1, 2, . . . . . 9, 10 people in the sample having the red ticket is given by the terms of the expansion of

(q + p)10 = 10C0 (q10) + 10C1 (q9) (p) + 10C2 (q8) (p2) +

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10C3 (q7) (p6) + 10C4 (q6) (p4) + . . . . . etc

which is as far as we need to go, because the term 10C4 (q6) (p4) is the one we are interested in here.

We are told that 10C4 (q6) (p4) = 0.2508

The easiest way to find the values of q and p is to refer to published tables of the binomial distribution for n = 10. Look in the body of the table for a value of 0.2508 or thereabouts.

Fortunately, the exact value 0.2508 appears for a value of q = 0.6, p = 0.4

Which means that the probability of any single person having a red ticket is 0.4

AMfuckingA128 karma

Good thing I didn't attempt to answer this (though I never promised correct answers anyways)

ladystetson79 karma

Do you like candy corn?

AMfuckingA162 karma

yes! I tend to eat off the tops.

ladystetson72 karma

What is the most detailed memory you have?

AMfuckingA205 karma

Tough. Probably yelling at a kid about how stupid he was in fourth grade, only to get closer and see his mom was right fucking there. Embarrassing memories are always the clearest.

Billy_Batts61 karma

Now go home and get yer fuckin shinebox?

AMfuckingA114 karma

Mother fuckin mutt! You, you fucking piece of shit!

Tangodeltaniner56 karma

Your opinion on the /r/beatingwomen controversy?

AMfuckingA205 karma

I agree that if it were a fetish it would be okay, but that subreddit does not make that clear, and implies quite the opposite. Even if the implications ARE the fetish, that is not okay, they need to make it clear that the women are okay with this and that they mean no harm or disrespect.
