Points to ponder

 

Why does the sun lightens our hair, but darken our skin?
Why if an orange is called an orange a pear is not called a green..... and why is called a pear anyway when there is only one of them?
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 isn't there Cat flavored Dog food?
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Why do they sterilize the needle for those 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 con is the opposite of Pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
Why do you never see baby pigeons?
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
And finally, do we all need to get out more? Cheesy

Re: Points to ponder

And why do people ask such questions when the internet can answer them all, apart from the last one.

Re: Points to ponder

Only in america would such questions be asked... Grin

 

Sun thing is about UV bleaching and vitamin pigmentation forming in the skin

Orange is a misunderstanding of "Naranj" as in "a naranj, an orange", that and proper oranges are green...

Psychics are frauds

Abbreviation is 7 letters too long for them

Doctors use patients to try new things, so therefore "practice" on people

Dunno about in the US but lemon juice here is lemon juice, not artificial rubbish

Broker cos they like to make people broke to call on debts

Rush hour cos slow-witted people all rush to the same roads and block them up hoping to get ahead of the traffic

It'd take a lot of mice to make one can of food

Ask PETA as to why cats aren't dog food

Noah didn't exist, and mosquitoes would have survived the story anyway

Needles come pre-sterilised anyway, so kind of moot

The material black boxes are made of are thick steel with a layer of sand between the inner and outer skins, far too heavy to make a plane out of

Apartments are "a partitioning of space within a building"

Sheep have Lanolin on their fleece, a waterproofing natural substance that keeps them relatively dry

Yes, Congress is the opposite of progress, as it is made up of businessmen, tycoons and overly rich NIMBYs...

Baby pigeons stay in the nest 'til they fledge, of course

"Terminal" refers to a point at which something happens, such as connecting a wire, meeting a train, catching a flight, or the end of life

Yes, yes you do...
