Questions you're afraid to ask - ask them here (judgement free zone)

OK Foosters, ever have a question and said to yourself "self, don't you be asking that question, everyone will think you're an idiot"? I do all the time, and just like the pirate with the ship's wheel down the front of his pants, it's driving me nuts!

I propose this be a judgement free zone where we can get the dumbest of dumb questions out there and hopefully get the answer once and for all... and not be mocked for it.

I'll start. What is "emo"? everyone is going on about it these days. It sounds like a brand of washing detergent to me, but I'm quite sure that's not it...


OK, your turn (or just post an answer).

Short for "emotional" and generally refers to the self-inflicted losers you remember from high school. They might tend to dress like the goth kids, but there the resemblence ends. They don't have the bright, cheerful disposition, and probably have fewer piercings but make up for it with self cutting.

I do not have the labels on my tires aligned with my valve stems. Does this make me less of a man than I already am?

Does my dog really love me, or does he just idolize me? Either way, I'm probably okay with it, but sometimes you just wanna know..

Your dog loves that you feed him. If you stop feeding him, he'll still love you, piece by piece. With a nice chianti.

I have a good one for women.

What do women really talk about when there are no men around?

Hate to be the smartarse ******bag, but it's actually from a genre of music called emotive/emotional hardcore.

But nowadays it's used to refer to people/kids that are into mopey music and dress that way.

Because when they don't have the women around for them to pester, they need SOMETHING to keep them busy.

I thought it was because all fetuses are originally female until the Y chromosome kicks in to make it male.

But something to keep us busy works too.
