Default Useful/Useless Knowledge Game!

The object of this game is to see who can answer random questions WITHOUT using the internet/books/friend/family/teacher, etc.
Rule #1: Use the knowledge you already know
Rule #2: Questions should be about every day things that you think about such as "why is the sky blue?" or "why do my veins look blue?"

My questions is: why do people get a stomach ache when doing physical activity after eating a big meal?

I know the answer to both of those questions. But not the stomach one.

If I were guessing I would say that it has something to do with the energy that would normally be used for digestion is transferred to your muscles which makes your stomach uncomfortable. But I am probably wrong about that?

The sky isn't blue it is whatever color that gets reflected. Sometimes the sky has no color at all, other times it is red/yellow/orange/blue

A dick swells up when it is engorged with blood, but why does it get so hard when blood is a liquid?

The same idea with a bottle of soda or a garden hose when it's turned on (no pun intended). Yes, blood is a liquid but the pressure it creates when rushing to the ***** causes the ***** to become hard.

Does the earths gravity keep it from rotating? Like when planets are very close to their star?

Why does the emoticon banana sometimes dance and sometimes is frozen still while all the other animated emoticons consistently move?
(Note: it is not currently dancing for me at the time of this post)

No, that is almost the exact opposite of what is happening.

I get what you mean, but that is also not the reason (in fact you can see the moon in the day sometimes).

Pretty much. The more detailed reason is a pretty interesting read: http://www.wisegeek.com/why-does-the...-the-earth.htm

I'm pretty sure that is actually a thing. But it has nothing to do with this question, even if the Earth wasn't rotating we would still see the same face all of the time.

This video gives a good visual explanation of what is happening.
