2. WHY does music make us feel so strongly? Music is strongly connected with two of our basic senses, those of speech and hearing, both of which depend on how we use sound waves to communicate with others. Often music imitates the cadence of human speech, sometimes comically so, and at other times musical rhythms help us move along such as in marching and in dancing.

2. Tails serve a variety of purposes for different animals. Whether they be for defense (such as the scorpion, or stegosaurs), a warning mechanism (rabbits and deer), for attracting a mate (peacocks and some other birds), flight direction (more birds), running counterbalance (cheetah), climbing (think primates, oppossums and kinkajous), swimming (fish, marine mammals, marine reptiles), brushing away pesky bugs (bovids, equids), or communication (cats, wolves, dogs) -they seem to make survival just a little bit easier... probably why most vertebrates and some invertebrates still have them.

3. WHEN is football (non American) season? :ymsigh: In Australia the football season usually starts in March and finishes by or on the first Saturday in October, whether it is AFL (Australian Football League - Aussie Rules), ARU (Australian Rugby Union), NFL (National Football League - Rugby League) or Soccer. All but AFL are played internationally, especially soccer (football) which is governed by FIFA which oversees the World Cup. Australian teams are the Kangaroos (Rugby League), Wallabies (Rugby Union) and the Socceroos. 8-| NZ's rugby union team is the All Blacks, and they are the best Rugby Union players in the world. In UK, itself, the FA cup (soccer AKA football) was finalised last May, the end of the English football season which started the previous October. Arsenal won that tournament. International football whichever code goes all year round. Well, the question did say non-American....

2. WHY is the yellow river yellow? The Yellow River, called also the Hwang Ho, is a major world river that has produced devastating floods. From its source it washes down the yellowish coloured loess soil which would be useful to the lands watered by these floods but which is also washed out to the similarly named Yellow Sea.

2.WHY is the period of time after the fall of the Western Roman Empire called the Dark Ages? The Western Roman Empire collapsed about 475 AD when Augustulus Romullus, the last Emperor, was deposed, after which all authority, except that of the Christian church broke down, giving rise to the belief that neither old ways of living nor barbaric invading tribes had any new contribution to that era of Western European civilization.
