Why do "No Dogs Allowed" signs have "(Except for Guide Dogs)" written at all, but why in small print, at the bottom?

If God is omnipresent, why do I have to go to see him at church?

If the only things that are certain in the World are death and taxes, where does Death file his tax return and when are we going to see the death of taxes?

why do drive up ATMs at the bank have brail for the blind?


I actually have a couple of answers for this one.

1) They put the braille pads on all the machines as a matter of law. In the long run, it's simpler anyway to affix the braille pads on all of them than take the trouble of removing them for the ATMs at drive up machines.

or

2) The dog can't drive and use the machine at the same time.

Your choice. Say "hi" to your mom for us.

To keep the busybodies from running up to people with guide dogs and harassing them about being in a No Dog zone. Not that it always works, but few things can be completely idiot-proofed.

Who says you have to?

Why doesn't a can or bottle of soft drink spew out everywhere when it comes out of a vending machine yet if I was to shake it up the way it is shaken inside the machine it would...

I can answer that!

It's because the can isn't really shaken up inside the machine. it's rolled down to you on it's side and only really gets a bit of a jolt at the bottom of the fall.

Why we are so willing in believing in multi Culturism , then so ignorant in remembering the millions of our kind who died denying that it works.

Why we ignore suffering of others in silence , yet scream when we suffer a scratch ourselves....then cry when we are ignored.

How do they commercially grow bird food in the fields, but not have the birds eat it all?

Being an ecologist, this really did pop in my mind one day. LOL

[edit on 14-5-2010 by Gazrok]


They are to be used in case of Zombie attack

They have to be prepared for anything. Just because its open 24 hours a day doesn't leave out the fact that they could lock the doors for anything else. It's standard bought doors and the management just couldn't bother to remove the locks.

Why is cold cut/ lunch meat round when all bread is SQUARE.

Because processed meat is ground up meat and water/additives that are then crushed down into a block and squeezed through a pipe to get all the excess liquids out of it... so they keep it round rather than waste parts of it by slicing them off.

i actually leave a few patches of unmowed grasses in my yard (surrounded by woods on a 3 acre lot) just so the birds can have some more birdfood. (patches planted with birdfoods)

nice to see others with healthy fetishes for the environment!

thanks for sharing,

None of that...it's to make a boundary so people know where they can bury and don't go beyond the boundary.

Exactly. So how does a company produce food commercially for bird food and not have the birds eat it all?
