How does an air conditioner make a room cool?
It’s all about the Freon. When an air conditioner is turned on, the Freon goes through a transformation from a cool gas to a hot gas to a liquid and finally into a cold Freon gas. This cold gas absorbs heat which causes the temperature to drop in your room.
Can somebody trace me based on a P O Box number?
Many people, sometimes scammers, open P O Boxes thinking that they cannot be traced under any circumstance. That’s not so. When you open a P O Box the postal employee is supposed to verify a physical address from you based on state identification and/or a utility bill. This is to avoid having people setup an illegitimate operation based only on a P O Box address.
For people who simply want to enjoy their privacy, it’s good to know that it’s highly unusual for a civilian to find out your physical address based on your P O Box number alone. That is information that the post office keeps in their own private records.
If I’m self employed, so how do I pay for social security/medicare/FICA?
Back when you worked for your old company, this annoying person named FICA kept taking a portion of your paycheck. Now that you’re self-employed, you’re probably wondering how this FICA “person” gets paid now?
When you’re self-employed and break a profit, you are responsible for paying a self employment tax on your yearly tax forms. The current self-employment tax rate is 15.3% — 12.4% goes to social security and the other 2.9% goes to Medicare.
Why do some men only bald on the top of their heads?
It’s like a reverse high top fade — some men only bald on the top of their heads. Why?
When a man goes bald only on the top of the head, it’s called male pattern baldness. Male pattern baldness is caused by large amounts of a substance called dihydrotestosterone or DHT, which is inherited (not just from the mother as is commonly believed). High levels of DHT in men causes hair follicles to thin and eventually die. The DHT works in a very predictable pattern which usually begins at the crown (top) of the head.
Why do fraternities use greek letters?
For one, all fraternal organizations do not use greek letters to represent themselves, but as for the ones who do…
Phi Beta Kappa, a social fraternity turned honor society founded at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, set the precedent. This group was the very first collegiate organization to use Greek letters to represent their organization. The founders of Phi Beta Kappa wanted to establish a new organization on campus that departed from anything that had a connection with English or German roots. So instead of using Latin letters and a Latin motto as other groups had been doing on campus, Phi Beta Kappa chose Greek letters. From that point forward more Greek lettered societies began popping up all over the United States.
