2.)They simply put two different foods next to eachother and see how many dogs will go for what food, sometimes trading out for more flavors, then take the one with the highest percentile.
3.)Darkness is the absence of light, while there are usually some light rays, there may not be enough for the human eye to see, darkness is only human perception. The speed of light even in an area with little to no light rays is still the speed of light.
4.)The forces involved in a plane crash would destroy any material basically, and if there was some super material that would allow the entire plane not to crumple or blow up, then the force of physics would still make every living person basically explode into a bloody pulp. The black box works because it has such a small physical surface area and mass and is made of a material that protects it's tiny surface. Smaller things survive accidents.
5.)Copyrighted symbol is as copyrighted as a period or the letter 'Q'
6.)Yes, your tears and sweat from swimming simply diffuse into the water.
7.)Dogs used to work.
11.)Noone knows, there are 2 generally accepted stories, you can go to wikipedia to read about it
12.)Most build nests, and those that don't probably just build nests.
15.)Yes, people that suffer amnesia usually remember whatever was forgotten, unless there is brain damage involved or a disease
18.)As long as the radio was travelling in your possession or it was also travelling at the speed of sound then yes, people that are watching you standing still would hear it later like a sonic boom
19.)Light is perception by the human eyes, as noone has travelled at that speed then we will never know, generally scientists think that light would appear as stretched and smeared to our eyes....but we will never know
21.)It depends on the country and their zoning laws, some places you only own the surface up to a certain depth and need to buy the mineral rights as well just in case any oil is underneith or some such, and generally the mineral rights only go to a certain depth as well. Other countries allow you to own the land to an unlimited depth
22.)Because you can go that fast on roads, there are racetracks people like to take their cars to just to speed around, there are legal roads like Germany's Autobahn that have no speed limit, private roads also are not governed by the police, so if you bought a farm and paved it over you could drive as fast as you damn well please.
