Crazy Thoughts

6 September, 2006

Life has many unanswered questions. That seems the introductory line to a lengthy and paradoxical discussion i’m going to skip that part, and go straight into some trivial questions which really resonate with me whilst just being great fun to laugh at.

The following are a few rehtorical questions that need to be embraced:
Do mimes watch silent movies?
Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

If winnie the pooh was civilized enough to keep his honey in jars, why did he eat it off his hands? Surely he had spoons?

What happens if you get a paper cut from a Get Well card?

Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?
If mirrors need light to work, what happens if you put night vision goggles on in the dark and look at a mirror?

What shape is the sky?

Why is it written “May contain traces of peanuts or other kind of nuts” on peanut butter jars?

If you have a gun and you ask, “can I ask you a question?” and they say “fire away” ?should you shoot them?

Why is it called the People’s Republic Of China when China’s not a republic?

How come people say they ate the last piece of gum, when they really just chew it?

Why do they put holes in crackers?

If all of ACME’s products backfire, why does Wile E. Coyote keep buying them?

Is it legal to name your kid “Anonymous”?

Can a school teacher give a homeless child homework?

Why do they say “an alarm going off,” if it is really going on?

Since there is a rule that states “i” before “e” except after “c”, wouldn’t “science” be spelled wrong?

Why do people say PIN number when that truly means Personal Identification Number Number?

Why do people call it an ATM machine, but they know it’s really saying Automated Teller Machine Machine?

Is sign language the same in languages other than English?

Why aren’t safety pins as safe as they say they are?

Why can’t a baby cry while it’s inside its mother?

If something “goes without saying,” why do people still say it?

Why do companies offer you “free gifts?” Since when has a gift NOT been free?

If you accidentally ate your own tongue, what would it taste like?

If love is blind, how can we believe in love at first sight?

If somebody vanished without a trace, how do people know they are missing?

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but people don’t point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Why do people say “You scared the living daylights out of me” when daylight is not living?
