    There are things in life that we all wonder about and never find an answer for. Here are a few of mine.

    I wonder if Woodpeckers ever get headaches, or beakaches?

    Why is a 4 wheel drive vehicle called a 4X4? It only has 4 wheels, not 16.

    Why can't the fish just jump into the boat?

    What is it about the word "STOP" that drivers don't understand?

    Why is a "flat tire" called a flat tire when it's only flat on the bottom? How about calling it a "broken tire"?

    I understand why some people think they can outrun a police car, but what makes them think they can outrun the police radio?

    Why is a glass half full of anything considered to be better than one that's half empty?

    It's a little early in the day to be trying to unscrew the inscrutable, isn't it? I find that deep philosophical questions such as these are best pondered after having read several chapters of The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy while internally well-lubricated, preferrably with Jack Daniels or Wild Turkey!

    :D

    Hey bro, don't take this too personally, but, you need to get a life! ;)

    Only kidding, here's one that's always bothered me: if you were a mirror, what would you see whenever you looked into a mirror. (My wife says I need help, bad). :D

    A mirror is a much too wise entity to care.
    It does not pass judgement, it just reflects.... :p

    How come people ask how come instead of why? Okay, it's in my sig, but why do they do that?

    Or why do people ask, "What did you do that FOR?" instead of "Why did you do that?"

    Maybe I should have been an English teacher. But it ain't my calling! LoL!

    [move]BTW, is Wild Turkey like Grape Nuts?[/move]

    Bj I think the next time I read one of your post in the morning I will make sure I am awake from a pot of coffee so My brain doesn't perform an illegal operation trying to absorb to much with a slow disc.

    Unscrewing the inscrutable, pondering imponderables and other assorted mental exercises whose sole purpose is to put one in a padded room while attired in one of those shirts with the wrap-around sleeves! ;)

    Well, time for my two cents' worth -- and I won't be insulted if you feel I've got change coming back. ;)

    We dipped just a little here into how crazy English (the language, that is) can be. And that reminded me of a favorite story.

    The English professor was hot on the topic of double-negatives. "In English they're often interpreted as a positive -- but they're just plain sloppy and incorrect. Not like, for instance, "ne ... pas... " in French, or similar structure in some other languages."

    "And it doesn't work the other way around. You'll never, repeat, never, hear in English a double-positive with a negative implication."

    A pause ... then a voice from the back of the room: "Yeah, right."

    Another couple of imponderables

    Why are do it yourself stores always built by someone else?

    If money doesn't grow on trees, why do banks have branches?

    Ahh, my kind of humor. So, what's up with this? I go away for a few days and you guys go getting all deep and philosophical on me.

    I see you have found my new clothing line. Nice humm?
