Ask Away Sunday: Week 47


1. Why are boxing rings square?

Boxing rings were originally round when they were Roman, and like the Coliseum in Rome, seats of the spectators were built around in stone seats so as to watch them fight it out to the death. The ring was later made to a square since boxing has evolved and the game does not end with one opponent dead. The corners were made to restrict them from killing each other.

2. What is a fear of fears called?


3.If humans evolved from apes, how do monkeys and apes still exist?

I don’t believe that humans evolved from apes.

4. Do Atheists swear on a Bible when they are witnesses in court?

I’ve always just assumed that everyone does.

Ask Away Sunday: Week 45


1. At a movie theater which arm rest is yours?

I usually stay in my wheelchair I can have two arm rests during the movie.

2. Where does the toetag go on a dead person if they don’t have toes?

I’m guessing it would go somewhere like their wrist.

3. Why is the sky blue?

A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light.  When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colors because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.

4. Is there a life after death?

I believe that there is.
