  • Hey, there; welcome to "Dear, Blocko...", the show where I answer your questions that you have about your world and my world.

  • First question upoh, in the Life Noggin Discord server, "toaster" asked about why some people are trolls.

  • And that led to the bigger overall question: Why do people hate things?

  • While it may vary from person to person, there's a few theories on this.

  • For some people, talking negatively about something may be a way of hiding the fact that they don't know much about it.

  • Or, they could be doing it to make themselves look better in comparison, or, as a way to establish dominance.

  • Some people do get joy out of seeing others upset or frustrated, unfortunately.

  • Or, their hatred can be a result of something called "group polarization".

  • This happens when a group of people discuss something they all dislike, and that negative feeling grows into something more extreme.

  • By the way, you can become a member of the channel to vote on which questions get selected for "Dear, Blocko..."

  • Link to becomemember of this channel is in the description.

  • Next question, "Pegasus" wants to know: What if you only ate fried food for every meal?

  • While they are delicious, regularly eating fried foods, especially for every meal, can lead to some serious health problems.

  • Foods that are fried can contain more than twice the amount of calories than if they were baked.

  • And when oils are heated to high temperatures during the frying process, the chemical structure of their fats changes, becoming trans fats.

  • These are hard for your body to break down and are associated with an increased risk of diseases like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity.

  • In fact, one study found that each additional 114-gram serving of fried foods per week increase(s) the overall risk of heart problems by 3%.

  • But if you do want to indulge every once in a while, choose foods made in healthier oils like coconut, avocado, and olive oils, which contain less trans fats.

  • And now it's time for a question about me or my world.

  • "AlexthePerplex" asks: Dear Blocko, What did Mocko do to get a restraining order?

  • Wellas you know, Mocko claims he's my evil twin slash archnemesis, but I've stated multiple times that I don't want that negativity in my life, sogot a restraining order.

  • The last straw was when he turned everything in my house purple and tried to kidnap Triangle Bob.

  • Triangle Bob doesn't live here anymore, so, I think Mocko got a little frustrated and ended up just taking a vacuum cleaner that had a hat on it.

  • Oh, hold on, one second; my security system went offoh, come on! Mocko's trying to replace my car tires with cheese wheels. Again.

  • Yeah, TonyHe's in the underground garage. OK, thanks.

  • Uh-oh, I'm in danger!

  • So, do you have any questions about your world or my world?
