RULES (Inspired by ELI5):
• Blatant speculation only. If you know the answer to a question, keep it to yourself! We only want the best and most creative wild guesses here. Even if you know the answer, make up something better.
• Never cite sources. We're not looking for verifiable facts here. Your source should be your own crazy imagination.
• Reference ELI5. Cross-posting good questions from "explainlikeim-x" is encouraged, but if you do it, include a link back to the original question there (this will also help people who are interested in the "real" answers). Yes, even if it's from the othe/r site. Or post one on Voat and link to that.
• Please begin your questions with "LIC" or "ELIC".
• If you're posting a non-question, do not use "LIC" or "ELIC".
• Answers can be as simple or complicated as you want, but aim for humor. The spirit of the subreddit is to have a humorous exchange of completely made-up answers to life's burning questions. Feel free to add to other people's answers, or to follow-up with more questions for clarification.
• Humor is necessary, but don't be a jerk. Try to avoid especially touchy subjects in questions, or giving blatantly offensive answers.
Feel free to pose a possible answer with your own question if you have a good theory.
• "It builds character" is a perfectly appropriate answer, but remember that original answers also build character.
