Which culture used no personal names?

Dunno, ask the brother.

In the twin paradox does the returning twin also come back permanently length contracted flatter than the twin on Earth?

No, but his grammar does get scrambled by his exposure to cosmic radiation.

Is it unusual that English uses possessive for past tense?

No, but it is usual for people who ask such specific questions about a language to be able to speak the language in question.

Are dead worlds a good galactic barrier?

Against what? What have you tried? Show us your code! We are not here to do your homework!

How does Data know about his off switch?

Someone told him and he retained the information.

Does code obfuscation give any measurable security benefit?

It might provide job security for the charlatan that wrote it.

Is the tap water in France safe to drink?

It rather depends on the quantities involved and what you mix with it.

Is it really better for the environment if I take the stairs as opposed to a lift?

Well, it's certainly better for you, you lazy so-and-so, stop looking for excuses!

Should I avoid "big words" when writing to a younger audience?

Only if you wish to patronise the subannuated little elephanters.

How are Aircraft Noses Designed?

In a similar way to the rest of the aircraft.

Can we not simply connect a battery to a RAM to prevent data loss during power cuts?

You sure know how to upset a sheep!

What happens when the Immolation spell is cast on a creature immune to fire damage?

It burns but it doesn't get hurt, I'd have thought. But what would I know from my boring life on Planet Earth?

How many wires can safely be secured in a Marrette 33 wire nut?

If you don't know that, you shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a Marrette 33 wire nut!

Could an American state survive nuclear war?

Alaska, maybe. Rhode Island, probably not. But it really does rather depend on the number and power of the nukes involved, where they're targeted and prevailing weather conditions amongst other things. Do try to be more specific with your hypothetical clap-trap!

Why is technology bad for children?

Because it exposes them to questions like these!
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
