  • Why is Rap considered music? There's no singing talent involved. It's just someone talking to a beat.?

    Best answer: I find myself on the fence with this. Rap is an art form. It has a beat, it has lyrics. Is a melody absolutely necessary for it to be music? Usually, yes.....although I can think of extreme examples that break that 'rule'. Check out Indonesian Gamelan music, for example.

    Rap isn't relevant to me, so it's easy to say "I don't get it". What I do "get" is that it's relevant and powerful to some segments of our culture. Some of us feel it falls outside the boundaries of traditional music, others feel it has just expanded the definition. Who actually gets the right to define where those boundaries lie? Whether Rap meets the definition of true music or sits in a new category of it's own, it's *treated* like music. It's listened to on music players, and distributed through the same networks as "traditional" music. Ultimately, I'm swayed by that argument. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck.......well, you know the saying.

  • Do people often walk away from you when you're in a conversation?

    Because, often, people walk away from me when I start talking about the topic, or try to add something to the topic, or try to say my side of a topic. You get the idea. Like for example, today at work, a coworker has a cast on his hand. I ask him what happened and he tells me the story of how he cut his hand and had to get stitches. He even shows a pic of his would on his phone when it happened. I asked him few more questions like does it hurt, how deep was the cut, etc. Then I thought it would be interesting to bring up how I almost lost my finger from a deep cut, years ago. His response was "yeah" and then he just abruptly walked away.

  • Do you like Jews?

    The Jews are NOT promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims. The Jews don't hijack planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in German restaurants. There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.. There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people. The Jews don't traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and death to all the Infidels.

  • Is it illegal to sell food that bugs were on?

    My school has a student store that sells things like cupcakes, cookies, brownies, donuts, and stuff like that. At lunch time and after school they take everything outside to sell it and they leave all the boxes of the cookies and stuff open and I always see flies and ants crawling on them, and people are still buying them. I even saw a dead fly on a donut the other day ago. Is this illegal and should I report them?

    Best answer: Both. Trump and the Republicans have done a fantastic job making America great again and it is delightful to see so many people walking away from the Democrat party. I hope we can finish of the Dems once and for all.

  • Oil Light turns on, but oil level is fine?

    I have an older Subaru Outback. I know the head gaskets are failing but the repair would cost more than the car is worth so I plan to just drive it until it dies and then scrap it and move on. The "service engine soon" light comes on a lot, the code is related to an oxygen sensor in the exhaust, but the root cause of the issue is the fact that the car burns oil or coolant or whatever. Lately the oil light has been coming on for brief periods of time. It comes on when you first start the car and all the dash lights turn on, but when the other lights turn off the oil light will stay on a few seconds longer, sometimes for 30-60 seconds. then it turns off. I've checked the oil many times and the oil level is good. Its been less than 2,000 miles since my last oil change and the oil doesn't look black or burned, so its not due to be changed. I'm just wondering what could be causing the oil light? Is it possible for the leaking gaskets to allow coolant into the oil? Like maybe its burning or leaking oil but the level looks right because coolant seeps in? Could there be a problem with the oil filter, like maybe its clogged or something? The coolant does run low over time, I top it off every few months but its not bad. I'm planning to take the car on a (somewhat) long trip - about 300 miles round trip next weekend so if there's something simple & cheap I can do before then like replacing the filter I'm all ears. Thanks.

  • Would larger wheels have an affect on MPG?

    Best answer: You are forgetting an important aspect: with tires of the same circumference, the tire+wheel combination of 18 inch rim could be lighter than the 16 inch if they have the same width. The larger sidewall rubber could weight more than the larger size of the alloy that compensates for it.
