30 Strange & Fascinating Questions You Never Knew You Wanted Answered - Tree Underwear

I've always been a huge fan of Slate.com's "Explainer" Series.
Its purpose is simple: To answer (sometimes unasked) questions about
various issues that come up in the news or everyday life. These
questions run the gamut from basic trivia questions ("When Did
Prisoners Start Dressing In Orange"), to the taboo or obscene ("What
would happen if you snorted cremated remains", "Are Both Father And
[Adult] Daughter Culpable In Cases Of Incest?") questions you've
probably never allowed yourself to consider.
 
Of course, The
Vast Archive Containing Hundreds Upon Hundreds Of These Questions

is available for your perusal (and I encourage you to do so), but just
in case you don't feel like spending all that time, I've compiled a
list of 30 of the best ones here (without permission, naturally).
 
And if you think linking to a bunch of articles I didn't have anything
to do with is just a cheap way of getting out of having to write
anything: Congratulations, you are right. Welcome to the internet.
