    I find it ironic that that you claim in your signature that you can be a "smart-aleck," when you don't know that the hat that a Sea Captain would wear is called a Captain's hat.

    I've found that google is really useful for answering simple questions like the ones you're posting, PerseusRad

    By all means post whatever question you want, but search engines can help

    I couldn't find any homework help thread, so I'll ask here instead.
    The area of a poster board is x^2 + 3x - 10 inches. The width is x - 2 inches.
    Select the polynomial for the area of the poster board if one inch is removed from each side.
    Please don't give me the answer, that'd be considered cheating. Just explain how I'm supposed to find the answer myself. Just so you know ^ means "to the power of".

    And if it helps, the possible answers are...
    x2 - x - 12
    x2 + x - 12
    x2 + x + 12
    x2 + 2x + 12

    Step one: divide the area by the width to find the length
    Step two: subtract one from the length and the width
    Step three: multiply these two polynomials together to find the area

    Uhm...Question. Can you put the pin back into a grenade after you pull it out to stop it from exploding?

    This needs a quick answer.
    Grammar is important. Good grammar is the difference between, "I'm helping my Uncle Jack off a horse." and "I'm helping my Uncle jack off a horse."
    So please, learn how to use it correctly.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone

    Why wouldn't you just throw it away from you? Out of a window, down a hallway, etc. Most standard grenades have a delay around five seconds, with about a thirty foot kill radius. Most of the time, you should be able to get it away from you quick enough

    Wait....

    /Rereads question.

    Oh, that was the area it gave me. I thought it was length. I overlook details like that a lot. Now I feel stupid....it was such a simple question too.

    Hey, don't look at me. I think it's stupid as well. Tens are much easier to work with then twelves.

    Don't joke. Imperial measuring units are a nightmare to work with. I really feel sorry for anybody who has to work with those in their exams and stuff.

    Is there anything bad that can happen if I leave a half can of soda in the fridge for a while and drink it later or something? He found two half drunk soda cans in the fridge last night and he got mad and I have no idea what the hell he is on about.

    I don't know why you started suddenly talking in third person, but the only bad thing that will happen with day-old soda is that it will go flat, and then it just tastes gross and syrupy. The only time I wouldn't drink it is if it had been in your fridge for several weeks or months.

    He must have (mis)read something somewhere, cause he said something about possibly being hospitalized or something stupid...

    Oops, forgot to mention that my dad was the one who said the thing about it being bad or something.

    Not sure if the answer was sarcastic or not. :P

    I don't think anyone answered my other question. What is a domination troll? Don't tell me to look it up because I did and there was no answer. Don't be a jerk Rezzo.

    Has any team in the NBA, NHL or MLB ever swept every playoff series on the way to a championship? If so, please say what team it was, unless it's happened a lot for that sport. I don't work you to have to name off a ton of teams.

    I'm in the U.S. and have a degree in engineering. Despite the (pretty much) exclusive used of imperial units in everyday life, we learn pretty much everything in metric.

    I've always wondered (and if anyone knows feel free to say) why we use a different system then pretty much everyone else.

    He's probably just mad that your soda cans had been drinking :P

    Did you really look for something? I found an answer quite quickly on this site talking about trollers and types of trolls.

    Domination Trolls: This is where the trollers' strategy extends to the creation and running of apparently bona-fide mailing lists.

    That sounds a little weird to me. If I would've guessed, I've thought it was someone that's really awesome at a video game, and is always harassed the people they beat.
    I'm looking for a Serperior named Serpedera. It'll be at lvl 98 or above. If you happen to have such a pokemon please PM me.
