    I'm not sure exactly, I do know that if you mix a light color with a dark color it lightens and if you add a dark color to a light color it darkens, colors are just weird that way :P

    I'm not sure that this'll answer your question, either, but you have to remember that when you're talking about what pigment an object is, you're talking about the wavelength of light that is being reflected off of it and into your eyes. For example, when something appears green, that is because it's being struck by white light (which contains the full visible spectrum of colors) and absorbing every wavelength that is NOT green, and reflecting only green back, which is what you see. I'm not very sure of the physics behind combining light/pigments (where the hell is chuboy?!?), but keeping that in mind, it makes sense that they combine in different ways, because combining light will produce different actual wavelengths, and combining pigments will cause different wavelengths to be absorbed.


    Anywho, I've got two separate questions of my own:

    1) Why do all political ads go on about laws that "would ban abortions, even in cases of rape and incest". I mean, incest could either be consensual or non-consensual, but I could only see an abortion being wanted in the latter case -- but wouldn't that qualify as rape? And I somehow doubt that there's a huge enough number of incestual hookups where they go, "Whoops!" and decide that they need an abortion (not to mention, that's kind of a weird political scenario to defend).

    2) Have any of SmeargleRocks' posts had any substance to them? I swear, I saw the guy post a week ago, and he had ~200 posts, so I'm guessing not, but if somebody could elucidate me, that'd be fan****ingtastic. Or not, I don't actually care as such.

    Why do our human bones break so easily? I have never had a single broken bone in my 18 years of life but I see kids every week with a broken leg or broken arm

    Well that can't technically be answered (within my extent of knowledge :P) but they don't really break easily unless if you drink a LOT of Milk. Maybe, unfortunately kids don't drink milk???....

    Wait so you are saying if you drink milk your bones weaken or if you do they get weaker?

    Tbh, I've been wondering the same thing. Granted, my posts aren't the best, but that's just my opinion.

    The opposite. Bones get stronger through calcium intake, which milk is a good source of.

    Erm... I'm not even sure if that answers both parts of my question, but thanks for replying. (:

    Milk actually weakens your bones. Take a gander at this. http://doctorholze.wordpress.com/201...-weaken-bones/

    I only said that Milk was rich in calcium, which strenthens bones. I never said Milk, itself, strengthened bones.

    Ok, couple of questions.
    1 : Why does the USA say its a "free country " yet it has laws?
    2 : Is there a way to get shinies a little more easily? ( NO hacking etc,trading,)
    3 : Why is blue most of the time painted as sadness / depression?
    Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he felt like it.

    1. It's just so we can keep "law" and order so that you don't leave your house and get shot in the knee cap or stabbed in the foot or whatever

    2. No outside masuda method or the charms in BW2 no there isn't an easier way to get shinies, well except the pokeradar on diamond, pearl, and platinum

    3. People usually do it like that because well, think of water, or rain, in rain accidents can happen, in water people can drown, and also people usually get depressed in the had weather IE- rain
    Hope I helped a little

    To live and then die. That's a question which would be unique to each and every person, so only you could answer that for yourself.

    It has laws so that we can retain order (so that everyone doesn't do whatever they want). It would be pretty bad for example, if factories could just pollute however they wanted, or if people could just commit crimes with no punishment. The first 10 amendments of our Constitution (known as the Bill of Rights) actually list out the rights that the people have, including freedom of speech, religion, the press, the right to a speedy and public trail with a jury, the right to bear arms, and that soldiers can't be housed in people's houses during peacetime, among others. It also states that all rights not specifically listed are still protected.
    Here are Luka's PASBL squad/stats.

    Hello curious reader! You know that at some point you've wished you could battle like a trainer in the Pokémon anime. You probably dismissed the thought as a passing fantasy, but did you know the Pokémon Anime Style Battling League allows you to do just that? It's true! Read up on how to get started, and if you have any questions the Q/A thread awaits.
    Hope to see you around the PASBL!

    Why is there caffeine in sodas? Is it just a thing to make money since caffeine makes you more thirsty so you just drink more sodas or is it to try to get people addicted to caffeine so they will drink more soda or is there a legit reason?

    Hey man, there's a Pokemon questions thread in the GPD section. You're better off asking there since that's where most of the pokemaniacs hang out.

    It was implied in your post. You said calcium strengthens bones and milk is rich in calcium. That implies that you think milk strengthens bones.
