    [–] Why do most people with downs share the same "goofy" traits? I'm guessing it obviously has to do with their downs but what is it that cause it? CaptainFunktastic 3 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Everyone with Downs Syndrome looks and acts more or less the same because they share the exact same genetic flaw. A copy of their 21 chromosome, which in a genetically ideal person, wouldn't be there.

    [–] Is it normal for straight women to not find men attractive unless they know them? CaptainFunktastic 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    There is nothing wrong with any form of sexuality that doesn't directly harm another human being. Being attracted to one or more different kinds of people is normal. Their gender, sex, race, creed, color, or whatever else you can categorize is entirely irrelevant. It's your body, and whatever and whomever you chose to do with it, your call.

    [–] When someone comments "r/ArbitrarySubReddit" what specifically does this mean? CaptainFunktastic 4 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    So, in a thread, when someone says /r/nostupidcsquestions, they're telling the poster, usually in a nonrude way, that their question or response should go there.

    [–] Why do some people not understand that ending a text, or any online communication, with a period is rude? CaptainFunktastic 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in NoStupidQuestions

    The concept of ending a sentence or question with proper punctuation being rude is very new. See, in real world person-to-person communication, or any long form text-based chat, ending with proper pronunciation is considered correct. It means you understand English and know how to properly execute its rules.

    In texting though, ending with any form of punctuation is seen as rude because of its finality. The response "no thank you" is seen as a polite dismissal. A pleasant, neutral, open ended response. Texting "No, thank you." Implies that the conversation is over. We're done. Pack it up.

    In truth, however, its not. English has rules. These rules have been in place since modern English was created in the 14th century. Your phone, or your tablet, or your Twitter, or your Facebook have not, and will never supersede these rules.

    [–] What felt so scary and terrible about Hilary Clinton's presidency? CaptainFunktastic 2 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    I worked for the railroad, which employs generally very conservative people. I asked this question often and the usually responses were as follows:

    • I don't want a woman as president.

    • She sold nuclear secrets to china

    • Shes a bitch

    • She couldnt keep her husband happy, how the hell is she supposed to satisfy the nation

    • She has a history of seizures

    • She doesn't have any experience

    [–] What exactly is happening when I yawn and sometimes my right eyelid starts spasming. CaptainFunktastic 1 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    Yawning causes the nerves in your face to fire, your eyelids to snap shut, and your eyes to water. Sometimes these nerves just go a little nuts and your eyelids twitch.

    [–] Why does listening to sad music when I'm sad make me feel better? CaptainFunktastic 2 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    With me it acts as a way to purge those emotions. Youre feeling... something right? You're mad, or sad, or hungry or whatever. But, you're not sure what to do with it. Some people write, some paint, some make music, some drive, some play video games. People process emotions in different ways. You throw on some Fucking Pantera and break your own neck until the rage goes away, or you listen to REM and cry your eyes out.

    Nothing wrong with any of it.

    [–] If magic was real it would probably be taxed. CaptainFunktastic 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Well ... This depends entirely on your source and style of magic. For ease of explanation, we'll use the classic D&D classes

    If you were a Sorcerer, you wouldn't be taxed. As your power comes from your bloodline.

    Pretty similarly too a Warlock, which binds itself and then draws power from one of any number of otherworldly entities.

    Warlocks and Witches are the only ones which needs some sort of literary resource to learn magic. Tomes and grimoires. These could be taxed. As could the various alchemical ingredients needed for potions, tonics and poultices. As could the schools they'd need to take.

    So, as it is in the real world, those born into magical wealth or those that made some back room deal, never get taxed. But those who had to work for it, do.

    [–] Street Legalish CaptainFunktastic 5 points ago * (lasted edited 3 days ago) in Justrolledintotheshop

    According to this site, for a vehicle be Federally legal, which means it complies with DOT regulations for manufactured cars, it requires the following:

    • A horn which is audible from a minimum of 200 ft.
    • An engine hood
    • A windshield
    • Windshield wipers
    • Mirrors
    • Steering Wheel
    • Seat Belts
    • Breaks
    • Tires
    • Mufflers and exhaust/emission control systems I.E. a cat
    • Lights and signals
    • Reflectors
    • Bumpers
    • Evasion Devices -- anything designed to negate, evade, obscure or damage another vehicle is strictly illegal

    The Following varies state by state:

    • Low Riders: Minimum ground clearance varies state by state
    • Lift Kits: The higher you build your ride, the more risk it poses to other vehicles. With a high center of gravity, it poses a greater rollover risk, more weight and bigger wheels decreases breaking efficiency.

    All of that said, if it's registered as a kit-car I think it skirts a lot of the laws, that's why the Atom is legal here.

    [–] Street Legalish CaptainFunktastic 2 points ago in Justrolledintotheshop

    Seems like its perfectly legal. For a vehicle to be street legal in the states, all it needs is paperwork, a windshield, lights, and two mirrors.

    [–] Ah yes, because everyone needs a water tap in their hotel room flowing water onto their electronics. CaptainFunktastic 3 points ago in CrappyDesign

    That outlet looks like it's reasonably new. Probably 20 or 30 years old. That spigot looks like a pressure relief valve for an ancient radiator. That paint looks a few decades old.

    This isn't crappy; This is just an old as fuck building trying it's best to keep up with ever increasing demands on technology by sort of just stuffing everything where it can find room.

    [–] Sony Kills Spider-Man Partnership Deal with Marvel Studios CaptainFunktastic -2 points ago in movies

    The most likely scenario relating to the MCU is that with Peter's identity being revealed at the end of FFH, he will have been caught or arrested and taken to some black site. He won't be mentioned, except in passing by those whom he affected most.

    In the Sonyverse, He'll be just himself. The most likely scenario here is that the Avengers and Thanos will have been a hologram or some such by Mysterio.
