EVER WONDER..
...why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
...why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
...why you don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?
...why "abbreviated" is such a long word?
...why doctors call what they do "practice"?
...why you have to click on "Start" to stop Windows 98?
...why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, while dishwashing liquid is made
with real lemons?
...why the man who invests all your money is called a broker?
...why there isn't mouse-flavored cat food?
...who tastes dog food when it has a "new & improved" flavor?
...why Noah didn't swat those two mosquitoes?
...why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
...why they don't make the whole plane out of the material used for the
indestructible black box ?

...why they are called apartments when they are all stuck together?

Re: Ever wonder..

For the needle thing, probably because if something goes wrong and the person doesn't die, but then they get ill from germs on the needle, they could sue or something. The government's crazy like that.
For the black box thing, because the material is far too dense.

...why overlook is the opposite of oversee?
...why 'lisp' has an 's' in it?
...why 'hippopotomonstrosequippedaliophobia' is the fear of long words?


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.
