Often peoples routines and daily concerns deter us from noticing wierd stuff that effective comedians often encorporate into their acts.

Find a mindset where the problems of the world isn't on your shoulders, and when you find a little spare time, and live in the moment....

Have you ever noticed something that seems like it could easily fit into some comedians act?

I'll share an example of one of my random thoughts, accompanied with an excess of spare time:

Why are there more than 320 words on my can of Budweiser?
Really? 12 Ounces of alchohol people. it is a beer. besides, drunk people don't read the fine print, they can't see it! Marketting Geniuses?

12 Ounces.
320+ Words (i counted 326, but i may have been slightly unsober)

Anyways, that is relatively 27 words for each ounce of beer.




So What oddities of society have you or your circle noticed that has made you, family, friends say "hmm?"

Thanks for sharing. I'm sure I'll find/remember wierd things me and my social circles.

I'm still puzzled why hot dog buns come in packs of 8, while hot dogs come in packs of 10...

Why do stores that are open 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year, have doors with locks on them?

I like the door lock paradox. Security concerns and spending money on loscks nobody ever uses. Yep, certainly a mystery.

So, do the people who spend excess money on things that their company never uses get to keep their jobs, or even get promotions and raises?

Thanks Gaz for the brain food

I have A SPECIFIC one for ATS/BTS ....

Why is the "3 Word Story" Thread in the General Chit Chat Forum and not the Collaboritive Writing Forum?

Seriously, 6 years into it and the 3 word story is still in general chit chat and not in collaboritive writing?

Why is it that people who will believe the most outlandish stories with no supporting evidence will touch something with a Wet Paint sign to see if it really is?

um ... is that man wearing a diaper?


"hmm?"

If that man is one of your friends or family, i'm assuming that man has a sense of humor.



-------------------

I often wondered why we use excessive letters in words that don't need to be there,

case and point:

TRAFFIC.

one "F" would be sufficient.

think how many sheets worth of paper we have wasted by just putting one too many F's in a word when one would have done the job.

Why is abbreviation such a long word?

Why Is Betty a nickname for Beth?

And while two wrongs don't make a right; if you are driving in a city, three lefts do.

true story:

i was sitting at a campfire as a seargent in the usaf (firefighter) at a base near bagdad with some other military members, 5 or 6 of us i believe...

and my fellow service members brought up the malaria medication we were taking and one airman said he was concerned about the west nile virus

i reassured him we didn't need to worry about the west nile virus because we were on the east side of the nile.

he agreed with me and said "that's good to know"

Well,just sitting here reading this post and wondered about anything within my gaze that I may mention on here.

Did you know according to the print on the bottle,that water has NO nutritional value?

Tell that to a man dying of thirst.

"No,I am sorry you can't have this bottle of water,it has no nutritional value,here have a cookie instead."
