Why is it that Europeans pay so much more than us Americans for gasoline? Is the high paying isolated to Europe? does Asia pay high prices too? I would think in todayâ€™s well traveled high tech world that prices would be similar across the globe.

We were at lunch discussing Airplanes and flight times and such. He is flying to San diego and we thought of this. We were wondering if the Roatation of the Earth has any measurable bearing on the flight time. Along those lines Glenn, my esteemed colleague had the thought, that if you were to go straight up into the air in a helicopter and hover for several hours would you land in a different place when you came directly down, or would you travel along with the rotation of the Earth. Thanks all-knowing and ever wondrous Shaun.

The water in the water cooler at work is from Nestle. It says that itâ€™s been filtered through a â€œReverse Osmosisâ€ process. What does that mean, to me the consumer, and is this better than other filter methods? Should I prefer it over Brita filtered water?

One the thruway there are huge rocks where they blasted to make way for the road, and on these said rocks, there is ice forming a sort of frozen waterfall, where water has seeped out of the rock. My question to you is, BA BA DUM, Why is the Ice Blue?

I have a print of a photograph by Robert Doisneau hanging in the stairwell of my apartment. The piece is called Le Bouquet de Jonquilles (or Bouquet of Daffodils) and can be seen here:
Every time I pass by I admire the shoes on the women in the photo. Shaun, where can I find such shoes as these? Who made them? Why are they so fabulous? Could they be even MORE amazing in color?
I have another question! Can you ever accumulate such a large buildup of static electricity that when you touch something metal, you will receive a serious electric shock? Like, SERIOUS shock?
Your curious sister,

What is a Jiggawatt? Also, what is the scientific significant of having 1.21 of them? Is that some kind of Golden Number for engineers?

the Don Shaun:
A senior member of our family has come under significant fire from her television set. Every morning, several hours before she would like to wake up, it comes on at an unreasonably high volume pumping static into her living quarters.
Repeated investigations of the physical evidence reveal that the timer function for the television remains, as it always has, in the â€˜offâ€™ position.
Why oh why would a TV do this to an 82 year old lady? What can be done to tame this insatiable beast?
Please note that suggestions to purchase a replacement have been met with a dim view; at the end of the day, she would very much like her [expletive deleted] television to work.
Your friend indeed,
