How can I use a Barney Fife Impersonator at my next event? Do vasectomies prevent abductions? Where is the least painful spot? All these (and many more) questions answered at UsedFaqs, a round-up of the more bizarre frequently asked questions from all around the series of tubes.

This is really weird and entertaining. What a great idea.

It's a little brief (I think it may have just recently launched?), but man, there's just something about scrolling through all the questions, one after the next, a weird feeling from all those non-sequiturs, as each topic changes on the fly with no logic behind the selections.

They're ten time better when you imagine that the questions belong to the same unidentified FAQ.

"Will I meet Barbara Streisand?"
"Do I have to be naked all the time?"

This is great.

Thanks, jonson! I loved the Noah's Arc FAQ.

The Noah's Ark thing is a hoot. The creationism site it links to is priceless.

"Evolution is based upon lies."

Oh. OK. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

The Noah's Ark one is brilliant.
Horses and zebras can (and have) physically mated producing viable offspring; so have tigers and lions, indicating that they (according to creation theory) probably respectively diverged from the same original stock.
You mean they... evolved?

"Series of tubes" is the new "internets."

Maybe they just "intelligent designed" after the Ark landed.

Sibrax, that's a good one. I'm guessing the pool is endless in this area...
