If you feel the question is obvious-- ignore it

comment What is the chemical composition of an egg shell?
I took time to ask my question here, (help myself). My asking of a question spurred participation. SE is optimized for Q&A, so please do not tell me to google things. Perhaps they should make a biology overflow for serious research questions.

comment What is the chemical composition of an egg shell?
@biogirl I don't want to google things; I would like to ask questions here to build a larger index of Q&A. Sure, I could always google things, but, asking questions here in the fashion that I have, is a catalyst for participation. If everyone feels that I should seek to answer my own questions through google, (which I am perfectly capable of doing), why have biology stack exchange? I would rather get the unique, human, and academic perspective from biologists and biology enthusiasts alike.

@terdon Sorry for my derisive tone that I may or may not have taken with you yesterday and thank you for your answer.

comment What is the chemical composition of an egg shell?
@terdon Ok, this is a full comprehensive answer. I really hope that the kinds of questions I'm asking are appropriate for this forum. Otherwise, if the community would prefer, I can ask some of these questions on chemistry stack exchange.

comment Why does shaving dehydrate the skin? Is there an hormonal effect involved?
@nico Not in particular, but through shaving we damage tissue, which might cause an uptake in hair growth hormone. If not enough hormone is available, wouldn't the body think it is deficient in the hair growth hormone and produce more?

I thought that the calcium carbonate dissolves in olive oil, and calcium acetate forms. Should I have anything to worry about as far as calcium acetate goes?

@terdon is there something happening with hair follicles? And yes, I understand how the skin gets irritated-- I want to understand why the face becomes dry after shaving and if shaving effects hormones? I've heard that after shaving, hair grows back faster, why????

@terdon You represent a jaded portion of this community, you don't like my question(s)? Explain to me why it they aren't valid, otherwise you have the option of nonparticipation in this thread.

comment The fundamental importance of R.E.M. Sleep. (Rapid Eye Movement)
@RoryM While I do agree, I think this quote was helpful and answered my question well. By the way, it's: its.
