    B Does the Universe really have to be at least as old as the oldest thing in it?

    Could something older than our universe originating from another universe get sucked into a wormhole and wind up in our universe therefore being older than our universe itself?

    B If string theory is correct does it mean that elementary particles don't really exist?

    I'm not asking about cosmic strings in the second question, but the string in string theory. Apparently the two are different entities, not the same thing. I got them mixed up.

    B If string theory is correct does it mean that elementary particles don't really exist?

    I have done some reading and can see indeed that cosmic strings and the string in string theory are different entities. Cosmic strings can exist without string theory.

    B If string theory is correct does it mean that elementary particles don't really exist?

    If string theory is true, does it mean quarks, electrons, photons etc. are made of strings and so are not really elementary particles, but are made of strings?

    B If string theory is correct does it mean that elementary particles don't really exist?

    If string theory is correct does it mean that elementary particles like photons, electrons, and quarks don't really exist or does it mean they do but are made of cosmic strings and so therefore are not elementary?

    B Is gravity a force or not?

    I guess the answer to "is gravity a force?" can be "yes and no". In the context of general relativity it is not a force, however in most other situations like in designing buildings, bridges etc. it can be referred as a force.

    B Is gravity a force or not?

    According to general relativity, gravity is not a force, however it is referred as one of the four fundamental forces. This seems like a contradiction.

    If Stephen Hawking didn't have the disease that he had...

    How do you think Stephen Hawking would have been if he didn't have the disease that he had and wasn't physically handicapped?

    It is sad that he never went to outer space. There were plans to send him to space.

    Does body hair really grow back thicker each time you shave?

    Does body hair really grow back thicker each time you shave it? I hope this is just a myth. It's gotten me worried about shaving my facial hair too much.

    Can people die of old age?

    Yeah, I agree. Old age by itself is not deadly. Diseases that occur when people get old are what kill people, not the old age itself.
