The second compilation of readers' answers to the questions in the 'Last Word' column of New Scientist, the world's best-selling science weekly.

Ever wondered why we have fingerprints? Or whether bumblebees really defy the laws of physics when they fly? And why are eggs egg-shaped? And dogs' noses black? Why do our eyes water when we cut onions? Why doesn't superglue stick to the inside of its tube?

Why Don't Penguins' Feet Freeze? is popular science at its most entertaining and enlightening.
