Ask Arano Anything - Game

Arano, the Alaskan Malamute, is the character of a GingaBoard Admin.

Arano's thirst for knowledge is never quenched, and now he is turning to the members of Gingaboard for his next intelectual adventure. All you have to do is ask him a question (could be why, how, what) and he will answer your question, however difficult, in the next edition of the Ginga Guardian.

You must ask for facts, not opinions or advice. Arano's time is precious, so he will only choose 5 of the most challenging and interesting questions to answer per issue.

Examples of questions:
Why is an orange called an orange, and why doesn't it rhyme with anything?
Why do doughnuts have holes?
Why is Greenland full of ice while Iceland is full of green? Why do they have these names?
Why do dogs smell when wet?
Why do some people feel more comfortable talking on the phone than in person?
What is Luminol Testing Fluid made of?

To ask Arano a question, respond to this post!

IMPORTANT:
1. ALL unanswered questions asked are stored at the end of each month and deleted from the topic ready for new ones - please do not ask the same question twice!
2. Please do not ask more than 2 questions per month - it is no good asking 10+ questions in one go as Arano can only pick one question asked by a member to answer.

How did the modern classification of animals (kingdom > phylum > class > order > family > genus > species) originate?

Why do we use both meteric and imperial measurement?

If someone is born blind, how do they dream? Can they somehow see in their dreams, or are the dreams only experienced by the senses they use aka smelling, hearing, touching etc?

Where did the expression "raining cats and dogs" come from and what do cats and dogs have to do with rain anyway?

Oh. Interesting question. I'd love to know the answer to this too.

@Arano: So pretty please pick this one as one of the questions to answer. XD

There will be no Ask Arano in this GG as sadly I've not been around enough to do them! I will however try and answer some here at a later stage as you've asked some interesting ones I would like to have a go at finding answers to (:

Closing this topic for now, will post here again soon.

Ahhh sorry I never got around to answering questions like I said I would. Tell you what, I'll try and do a bumper AAA for the upcoming issue.

Feel free to ask more questions. Christmas/New Year themed questions would be good but not mandatory (;

Lots of people open their Christmas presents on the 25th and others on the 24th. Why does this difference exist? Where do the different traditions come from?
