Green chilie question

why do green chilies get hotter after putting them in the freezer? I noticed this after we found some chilies, and just smelling them made my nose run.

veggie or fruit

what is the difference exactly between a veggie and a fruit? I'm starting to doubt my school system for giving out truthfull information. They said it depended on if it had seeds or not, but that just dosn't make sense to me.

yup, i got a dionaea, and it's gettin kinda big. Had to change the pot it was in. There's three hairs on each side of the trap, and they have to be touched. Two different hairs I belive. But I'm still not sure what the mechinism is that causes the plant to close. Oh yeah... name's Josh by the way

isn't it also possible for a snake to do a "dry" bite? I'm not a herpetologist so I have no idea, but I thought I heard from somewhere that they could.

having read the tutorials on the forum I figured out how to do it, and I got the same answers you guys did, so perhaps the book was mistyped.

did the question want the individuals that are homozygous for both traits? I'm not even sure that would have a bearing on the answer becuase i'm kinda confused on how to do punnett squares with more than one characteristic. Just now learning about Mendel.
