(I DO like a C-type battery now you mention it)

Keep having them, wish I could remember them, except for when I dream about the world ending like I did the other day.

They're inevitably far more detailed than they should reasonably need to be

Why do MSDS make a bag of rust sound like something to shut down a bridge for?

Because they always have the worst-case scenario and worst possible dangers :D

Why am I delighted that you know what MSDS are?

(particularly, breathing without dust going into one's lungs)

A word I hear fairly often without really knowing what it means.

Why were Mondasians so similar to Humans?

Human imagination is limited and its harder to sympathise with something alien than it is to sympathise with something humanoid.

Also, a proxy is basically a remote organ that can be operated remotely.
For computers, this can be a device that is physically located in a different country/region of the world than the user that is remotely operating it.
Some countries have overseas territories, embassies or military bases that act as proxies for military, economic or diplomatic missions in areas that don't neighbour that country's mainland borders.

If the moon really rotated around the earth, then how would it avoid collision with all the stars?

Maybe this is a signature, maybe it is not. Who knows?

Because the stars are in fact closer to the Earth than the moon is, it moves behind them.

Does the sun only have spots because it is (in celestial terms) a teenager?

Nah, they're freckles. We literally call those 'sun spots' in Dutch.
"Now listen to me, we're not looking for sympathy, just because we're sensitive to UV"

If we tied a rope between the moon and the earth, would we get an extra day each month?

That’s an interesting question! No, because the starfield would cut through it like shuriken through silk.

How does a star’s rotational axis end up completely off from its magnetic axis?

Because there are unlimited possible allignments in which they do not overlap and there is exactly one way in which they do. If you can do better, try it yourself, smartass!

Do you know how hard that is to do? Do you?

;P
