comment Can a flying bullet be caught with your hands?
This is assuming that the bullet has just been fired (which is indeed typically the case in movies, but nowhere stated in the question). If the bullet has already lost a lot of speed due to friction or gravity, it might just be possible. Just check the what-if xkcd post that @Michal commented: what-if.xkcd.com/81

comment How does surface tension enable insects to walk on water?
I think the term "hydrogen bonding" (even in quotes) is not the correct explanation, non-wetting objects can also be held by other liquids with sufficient surface tension, also the ones without hydrogen bridges. The intermolecular attraction due to Van der Waals forces is the primary reason that interfacial area is minimized.

comment In the formula for the mass of a drop of water on the end of a tube, is r internal or external radius?
@JiK although this is just a choice of drawing, it is indeed the case that $r$ is not necessarily the internal radius. It depends on the wetting properties of the tubes rim.

You say that you have read the above post already, but the answer to your question is in there, by John Rennie, so I suggest you read it again or specify what it is you still cannot understand from that answer.
