Resolved Question: Why doesn't the moon
Every heavenly body--literally everything in space--spins except our moon, that's why we only see the one side and never see the 'dark side' of the moon. Why is that? People, please stop telling me, in the exact same terms, that it does spin. If it spun we would see all sides of it...we don't. We only see the side that faces us. THAT IS NOT SPINNING. Try it yourself with an orange or something. I need you people to think for yourselves and not just quote wiki or some other source saying the same thing. OK? PEOPLE....something that has one side always facing you IS NOT spinning. I'm not sure why you people can't understand that. Can you please use your brain and think for yourself about this and stop telling me the same stupid ******* thing?!?!? once again people....like Geoff, who said "it is tidally locked to its primary, the Earth, so that it always keeps the same face towards the Earth"...do you see those words you used there: "KEEPS THE SAME FACE TOWARDS THE EARTH" ?!?!?!?! If we see the same face, it is not spinning. I'm not talking about rotating, as in orbiting the Earth, I mean SPIN. Why doesn't it SPIN?? Jason, you're wrong and your example makes no sense. If the moon spins, then why are we always seeing one side of it? stop telling me we see all sides of the moon....even wiki says we don't.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_side_of_the_Moon
"The far side of the Moon, sometimes called the dark side of the Moon, is the lunar hemisphere that is permanently turned away, and not visible from the surface of the Earth. The far hemisphere was first photographed by the Soviet Luna 3 probe in 1959, and was first directly observed by human eyes when the Apollo 8 mission orbited the Moon in 1968. The rugged terrain is distinguished by a multitude of crater impacts, as well as relatively few lunar maria. It includes the second largest known impact feature in the Solar System, the South Pole-Aitken basin. The far side has been suggested as a potential location for a large radio telescope, as it would be shielded from possible radio interference from Earth. To date, there has been no ground exploration of the far side of the Moon." DO YOU SEE HOW IT SAYS "PERMANENTLY TURNED AWAY"???? HOW Well, thanks but no thanks to everyone that answered this question the same moronic way.
It's like every single one of you think that I didn't even bother to look into it first. I did!! I looked it up and that explanation only created more questions. I'm guessing the answer is not known. Several articles I read said that the moon USED to spin but our gravity caused it to slow down and eventually stop, locked into this current position where we only see ONE SIDE of it....oddly enough, that same article said, yes the moon does spin....apparently unaware of how the previous sentence contradicts this claim. In the end, all I found was nonsensical and contradicting answers...that's it. Do other moons spin? IS ours the only one that doesn't? If so, why? And how did the moon get to be hollow? Maybe that's my next question....but not if any of these same retards are trying to answer it. Seriously, folks, try thinking for yourself for once instead of copying and pasting CONCLUSION: for anyone interested, I did solve the moon paradox I encountered, but some of you will be surprised (or maybe not) to know that I still think you are wrong. While it can be frustrating for others at times (Even myself) I pride myself on thinking for myself and being able to figure things out. I'm actually very good at this kind of thing. I know some of you will disagree about that. As it turns out, the moon does rotate, but more like pivot, and only insomuch as it needs to in order to remain facing the planet Earth. BUT, and I want to be very clear about this, IT DOES NOT SPIN. (If I had to describe it I would say it--the moon--moves sideways in a path around a circle, always looking inward towards the center of the circle...you could imitate this by sidestepping around a circumference of a circle looking inward. Is that spinning? NO!! Not at all) This "rotating" or "pivoting", while those words might seem synonymous with "spinning" in fac (continued....)
This "rotating" or "pivoting", while those words might seem synonymous with "spinning" in fact are not the same thing. Just because something orbits another thing, doesn't mean it "spins". To illustrate what I mean, compare these two relationships: 1) the moon and the earth...and 2) the earth and the sun. The moon revolves around the earth, but it doesn't spin. The earth revolves around the sun, but it spins. You can claim the moon is "tidally locked" all you want (a phrase I never want to hear again, btw) but that doesn't really describe what is going on very accurately, and certainly doesn't explain the lack of spin. If you look at the way the earth revolves around the sun, it is spinning the whole time, but not the moon, and this is why we only see one side of it. the behavior of the moon to the earth is more like a magnetic attraction on the sides that face each other. The relationship of the earth to The relationship of the earth to the sun is not like this at all. For the "tidally locked" crowd I would say consider this: the moon could be spinning or not spinning and it would have the same effect on the tides here on earth, so that has nothing to do with the lack of spin I've been talking about here. No, I'm not a scientist, or an expert in this field, but I am, however, a free thinker, and a critical thinker. I find this to be much more rewarding and much more helpful. While many of you simply run to an authority to find and answer, I look within. I know that these things can be figured out, that the answer is within...so I look within. I know some of you don't understand what I mean by that, or how it can be so helpful or useful, but I do, and that's all that really matters. Think for yourself. Seek and you will find the answers.

Resolved Question: How can a guy like my
I am a 24 year old male. Kinda thin, but concerding beging a vegitarian. For a few reasons.
1. I do not trust the meat I get from the grocery store. Its all fake if you know what I mean. And filled with unnecessary fillers.
2. I can not afford whole foods. So if I was to go organic its going to be too expensive for me.
3. Its healthier. I have a 15 year younger than I am. And I like how she looks. She has a nice completion on her face. It glows. I guess from all the good veggies and fruits she gets. And in very good shape. Even though she never worked out.
4. I really do feel bad for the animals. Maybe if a guy like my self becomes one it will start a chain reaction. And it will one day end mass slaughter of animals.
5. I am Buddhist.
My problems will be.
1. Since I am trying to gain weigh, where can I get protein from? Is protein shakes concider vegetarian?
2. I never tried this before and loove the taste of meat. (sorry but at least I am considering it to give it up right?)
3. Chicken wings, hamburger and steaks and chicken. I do not eat that much red meat any ways. Because its just bad for you. But mannn chicken makes a tasty alternative.
The diet of course will be the hardest part. I am talking about turning off a switch. So I am guessing I will go threw some meat with draw symptoms. (seriously speaking).
And for fish...eh. I do not like fish that much. I hardly eat it any ways. To say I will take it out my diet its pretty much done. However if I am going to give up meat. I will crave it.
So what is the best way to go about this? So I wont end up quitting.
Remember. I am trying to gain weight so protein is necessary for me. So I would need a good amount of food that will fill in what I would get from meat.
Also. Late night snacks. You know when your hungry. first thing I do is get a fast snack from a fast food joint. I guess that is no more. What kind of thing should I do? Pack some snacks with me?
What kind of thing should I look for in a resturant?
Also alternatives. I need an alternative for every meat thing possible.
Eh I guess to make this short. What is a great cook book?
And should I quit meat cold or slowly transition? I really think if I was to quit cold. i would starve and get sick.
Thank you. I am very serious about this. I think meat alternatives added with preservatives are just as bad. I never ate the fires at fast food. its horrible for you.
