Link of the Week #43

http://www.straightdope.com/index.html

The title continues "Fighting Ignorance Since 1983 (it's taking longer than we thought)."

Ever wonder where hamsters come from (besides mommy hamsters, that is), how far bullets will travel underwater, why Peggy is a nickname for Margaret? These and hundreds of other questions are tackled and answered on The Straight Dope.


There's also a weekly newsletter, which generally has two new questions and one classic, so you don't have to spend all day reading the archives.
What's so fun are the sheer variety of questions--from serious to goofy, on every subject from physics to urban legend, and the humor and intelligence with which they're answered.
