"Can someone please explain the phrase “beer before liquor, never sicker”?"

If you start with beer, you begin getting drunk. Then by the time you start drinking liquor, which is not very filling, you are drunk and can easily drink more and more.

If you start with liquor you also get drunk, but when you start drinking beer you fill up and you cannot keep pounding beers to keep getting drunker and drunker. So even though you’re drunk and may want to continue drinking, you can’t.

"Why do bottles of antibiotics and vitamins smell bad?"

Not all antibiotics have that rotten egg smell, but those that do typically contain a Sulfur compound in the form of hydrogen sulfide that gives it that rancid smell.

"Why do we spell the country as ‘Philippines’ but the language as ‘Filipino’?"

Philippines is an old English name of the country. It was a Spanish colony, the Spanish name for the country is Islas Filipinas. Then the people of the Philippines decided to choose a new language to become the national language. They chose a language called Tagalog. Tagalog called the Philippines the same way as Spahish.

Subsequently they decided to rename Tagalog to Filipino to highlight its role as a national language. And English just borrowed the name.

"Why do we hold our breath when we lift heavy objects?"

It’s to brace/strengthen your core. Your body is “smart” enough to realize you’re about to put a lot of strain on your lower spine, so it forces you to contract all the muscles in the area to bolster it. This is why a belt helps deadlifts or squats, it gives something for those muscles to push against, further protecting the spine.

These are the mugshots of William West and William West, and they are not related. They were both sent to Leavenworth Prison at the same time, in 1903, and after some confusion, the staff understood they had two different prisoners with the exact same name, who looked exactly alike. They are part of the reason fingerprints are now used as identification.
