13 Nagging Questions, Finally Answered

According to research, the top questions that drive adults insane are: "Did I lock the front door," "Did I forget my cell phone," and "Did I leave the stove on?" Most of us have spent at least some time worrying if we switched off lights, grabbed our keys.

It can be difficult to shrug off a fear once it has grabbed us, and the majority of people can’t concentrate on anything else until they’ve resolved their compulsive worry. The truth is, you don't need to have any kind of disorder to be occasionally plagued by worries, obsession and fears. 

The fact is, even beyond every day worries, we all have nagging questions we just can't let go of.  Consider these the ear worms of curiosity.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions, ranging from which country people believe is the most corrupt to who truly fathered Jan's child in The Office.

Apocalypse country

Q: Which country is best equipped to survive an apocalypse/global collapse? A: New Zealand Second on the list is Iceland, followed by the UK, Australia, and Ireland in fifth. Researchers figured this by looking at three criterias: Carrying capacity, especially land used for farming to sustain a population; isolation (the further away from other populated countries, the better); and self-sufficiency, looking specifically at renewable energy and manufacturing capacity.
