We are a motherfucking profanity sub now.


Do you have a question that mainstream science refuses to answer? Are your theories and experiments so bizarre that sensible people tell you they will never be published? Do you need help building a doomsday machine, or shopping for a monstrous assistant? Then you've come to the right place! The esteemed panelists at Shitty Ask Science might be the only people who are willing to help you!


RULES OF THE SHITTY SCIENTIFIC METHOD

Dad Jokes and Lame Puns contaminate shitty science. We reserve the right to remove all Dad Jokes and throw them in the pile of hazardous waste behind our laboratory.

THE FOLLOWING SUBJECTS HAVE BEEN THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED AND ARE NO LONGER CONSIDERED SCIENCE. PLEASE DON'T USE THEM.

  1. Farts, poop, pee, and shit.
  2. Basic bitches.
  3. Homosexual Sapiens.
  4. The conversion rate of fuck-tons and shit-loads.
  5. Being what you eat, or a percentage of something.
  6. Fat peoples' interaction with gravity
  7. Genetic jeans.
  8. Space vacuum cleaners.
  9. Speed of heavy and/or dark.
  10. Sharp things that taste like blood.
  11. The fact that heat rises but mountains, the North Pole, and outer space are still cold.
  12. Making planes out of black boxes.
  13. Shaving with Occam's razor.
  14. Energy drink equations.
  15. The well-established relationship between autism and vaccines.
  16. Steel fuel. Jet memes. Steel memes. Steal beams.
  17. God.
  18. Pokemon.
  19. Questioning dead people.
  20. Degrees of murder and other crimes in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
  21. Blurry Japanese genetalia.
  22. ISIS in space.
  23. The deadly youth in Asia.
  24. Solving global warming with air conditioners.
  25. Upside-down Australians, almond milk, gender fluids, and anything else we've seen a million times already.
  26. Asking why meteors land in craters will result in a permanent ban!
  27. Asking what kind of thing is this when it's obviously not that kind of thing at all. And any other grossly willful misinterpretation of an image.
  28. Brand-name product placement. Scientists are on a budget. We can only afford generic products.

Praise be to Nagi, pro L4D2 player and top tier memer

[CITATION NEEDED] If r/shittyaskscience takes all the citations would r/askscience have to rely on bullshit non-credited factoids instead?

I feel sorry for our less popular sister subreddit. But them's the breaks.

Why can't we just eat ourselves when we're hungry? [CITATION NEEDED]

When we eat something, our body directs each material the food was made of to its purpose in our body (e.g. sugar for energy), and if we don't have anything to do with the material, our body throws it out. So, theoretically, if I eat my own hand, my body would have exactly enough materials to create a new one. Why isn't it possible then?
