    Some of you seem to enjoy showing off your expertise, so here is a list of questions an expert should be able to answer:

    Do libraries have a rule against sending someone else to return your library books on your behalf?
    Are people who have a tendency to abuse stimulants the opposite of people who are likely to abuse depressants, or are they more alike compared to the general population?
    How much should it actually cost to build a public restroom, and how long should it take?
    Why does the shape of a knish affect its flavor so much?
    Did the increased diversity of the characters in mathematical word problems have any discernible effect on society?
    Why are there no colored contact lenses for astigmatism?
    How would people react if they were actually asked to team up with members of their occupation or ethnicity to change a light bulb?
    Why is coffee not a type of herbal tea?
    Why are the names of the numbers 11 and 12 different from 13-19?
    How common are accidental tattoos from pencils?
    Are dogs actually 100% colorblind?
    What are some examples of stores that are furniture stores?

    Your premises are incorrect.

    haha–remarkable thread.

    ‘Are dogs actually 100% colorblind?’
    The answer turns on the fact that their are some cone receptors in the so-called primitive fovea of a dogs retina, hence, they have limited color perception.

    ‘Did the increased diversity of the characters in mathematical word problems have any discernible effect on society?’
    oh my–this is brilliant

    Joseph, are you only certified to diagnose premise incorrectness?

    Why do I waste my time on inane posts like this one?

    Baltimore Maven, the greater mystery is why you consider that comment a productive use of your time.

    Re: the public restroom; easy one, just take the cost NYC paid for the 18th ave park restroom and divide it by 10!

    The little I know

    Do libraries have a rule against sending someone else to return your library books on your behalf? No. But there are always strange ones.

    Are people who have a tendency to abuse stimulants the opposite of people who are likely to abuse depressants, or are they more alike compared to the general population? Neither.

    How much should it actually cost to build a public restroom, and how long should it take? Between 2-2½ million dollars and about 1-2 years. This is from public funds. From private funds, less than a tenth of that.

    Why does the shape of a knish affect its flavor so much? It doesn’t.

    Did the increased diversity of the characters in mathematical word problems have any discernible effect on society? Yes. But it’s Greek to me.

    Why are there no colored contact lenses for astigmatism? Why should there be?

    How would people react if they were actually asked to team up with members of their occupation or ethnicity to change a light bulb? Can’t tell. Most would not need to team up with anyone. Those that require teamwork for this have conditions that make their behavior unpredictable
    .
    Why is coffee not a type of herbal tea? Because it isn’t. Why is a mountain lion not a monkey?
    Why are the names of the numbers 11 and 12 different from 13-19? You may say oneteen or twoteen if you choose to.

    How common are accidental tattoos from pencils? Here’s my numbers. You judge. Annually in US, it’s 58,417, down 3.7% from the previous year.

    Are dogs actually 100% colorblind? Actually not true. Their color perception is different from humans.

    What are some examples of stores that are furniture stores? How about “The Furniture Store”?

    I got them all!

    There are colored contacts for myopia. Why is that different?
