It's Friday.. so lets take a break from all the negative stuff and relax a bit...

Here's a few questions that might put a smile on your face.I don't know if there's a conspiracy out there... you never know...


(MODS I know I should only quote some info, but I ask if we can include the list so people can add more too.
Thanks)

Found list here

Feel free to add more if you have any...





Why .....do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Why .....do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

Why ...do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

Why ......do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

Why . .....do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

EVER WONDER ...

Why the sun lightens our hair,
but darkens our skin ?

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?


Why? Good question.

I admit I do this. However, I get sinus infections often (less than before my surgery though and they do not last as long either). By looking at what is on the tissue I can gauge how bad my infection is and at what stage it is at (meaning about how much longer it might last).

A bit gross yes but as my infection progresses the color changes (I will spare you the detail though), I am happy to see certain colors.


I have an answer for this one, at least in my book

Because Easter is celebrated in the spring and spring is a time of rebirth. Both rabbits and eggs are symbols of fertility which stem back to the non-Christian celebrations.



The other two questions in the quote are very good. The snow one I can only guess that is because they are separate pieces of ice verses a sheet of ice. For instance crushed ice no longer looks as clear as a cube of ice.

I wonder about that often when putting on mascara...then I try closing my mouth and it just feels awkward.

That makes sense. Here's another why question: Why is Spongebob called SQUAREpants when he's actually a rectangle? (No matter how you look at him his sides are not equal.)

There is something backwards about our brains, and possibly the world.
