I assume most the things I'd like to know (the list below is partial), I could research and learn the answers to online. But I won't. I'd rather not know too much, and of the things I do learn, I'd prefer learning organically, along the way. Computer learning is cheatin.
I'd like to know ...

-Why is bark silent?
-Why are some nights dark, but other nights are dark?
