** Why is it considered necessary to nail down the lid of a coffin?~~

Incase the dead rise again....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?~~

Because just like if you leave something coloured out in the sun....it fades...but our skin is meat... so technically the sun is cooking us while we tan....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?~~

hmmm. not sure about this one....maybe its a concentration thing....kinda like ppl who stick ther tongue out while concentrating
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?~~

Because it needs air to start to dry the glue
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why don't you ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?~~

Because psychics are all just an act....nobody can really see into the future.....the only thing we can do is predict the future.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?~~

The length of words in a natural language tends to be inversely proportional with how often they are used - frequent words are shorter, rare words longer.
This makes sense as people will find a shorter alternative for a long word if they have to use it often - like how "automobile" turned into "car". I expect most people would rather have a 3-letter "the" and a 12-letter "abbreviation" than the other way around.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is a boxing ring square?~~

Because boxers used to fight in a circle drawn on the floor, called the ring. This name stuck On even after the boxing ring became a square
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is it called lipstick if you can still move your lips?~~

Because it's for your lips and it comes in the molded shape of a stick.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?~~

Because medicine and science are always advancing, so the learning process never ends. Therefore they are practicing the skills they have and continuing to learn and apply new skills to this practice.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is it that rain drops but snow falls?~~

Rain is a liquid thus it is heavier than air. It would drop through the air whereas snow, even though it is composed of water, is in a solid state. Thus it would fall because of the solid state of the water. Hail falls in like manner.
The same reason wind blows, the sun shines and the moon . . . what does the moon do? The moon glows....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?~~

Its all about divided attention. you turn down the radio to concentrate more on the map.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?~~

Lemons are hard on the enamel, but not on the dishes? Lemons contain citric acid. Which is a weak acid. If we drank a jug of citric acid...well lets leave that to our imagination. Now this citric acid is useful for cleaning dishes cuz well its a acid.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?~~

WORD HISTORY Giving gifts to one's broker might be justifiable from an etymological point of view because the word broker may be connected through its Anglo-Norman source, brocour, abrocour, with Spanish alboroque, meaning “ceremony or ceremonial gift after the conclusion of a business deal.” If this connection does exist, “business deal” is the notion shared by the Spanish and Anglo-Norman words because brocour referred to the middleman in transactions. The English word broker is first found in Middle English in 1355, several centuries before we find instances of its familiar compounds pawnbroker, first recorded in 1687, and stockbroker, first recorded in 1706.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the third hand on the watch called second hand?~~

Because that is what bit of time it measures....a second....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?~~

Because its a mad rush to get home.....its not about how fast you are going, its more about the sheer volume of cars on the road within that time period.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the word dictionary in the dictionary?~~

Because it is a word......think about that.....
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?~~

You are right. And isn't it weird that hands are the same? front - palms, back - er, the back of your hands...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?~~

The reason is simple : Cats are not the one buying the food. It is proven that people buy cat food according to their own image of what their cat should like. So mouse-flavored food is not as appetizing as chicken or beef. Another reason is that cat don't taste the same way as we do. Their tongue don't have the same area of taste as we do. Bitter taste for exemple is not located at the same place and it is much more pronounce for cat. That's why they really don't like the smell or taste of lemon. Their brain is also not trained to recognize mice meat as coming from a mouse. In the wild, cat don't hunt according to their taste but rather to their needs and what they can find and catch. If presented with two options, your cat will go for the one which taste better (more flavoured, more fresh and most of all, the one that smells the most). So your cat will not prefer mouse flavored food over chicken because for him, it's just another taste. Cat don't like mouse because they taste good, they love them because they can hunt them and catch them.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why can't they make the whole plane out of the same substance that little indestructible black box is?~~

Because it is called a plane, not a black box. If made out of black box material, the plane wouldn't fly. You have to trade off weight and strength. Plus that black box isn't necessarily placed in the most dangerous part of the plane either.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Can fat people go skinny-dipping?~~

No they go "CHUNKY DUNKING"
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?~~

You don't specifically need a driver's license, just some form of photo identification that proves you're old enough to buy alcohol. The driver's license is just the most common form of that I.D.

FUCK IT ... im gunna try answer all of these ..


** Why is it considered necessary to nail down the lid of a coffin?~~

to stop people diggin them up years ago, as the rich people were traditionally buried with all their gold and wealth .. so its an olden days thing

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

opening the mouth stretches the eyes open and tightens the skin around the cheek ..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?~~

because it has to oxidize , combine with oxygen over a period of time to stick

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why don't you ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?~~

because they are associated mainly with reading the minds of humans, and the lottery is inanimate .. also its not really true, altho some people can seem to channel telepathy better than others...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?~~

why wouldnt it be , the appearance and structure of a single word does not always reflect its meaning ... think of the words minuscule, microscopic , diminutive ... all quite long winded words, to descibe the meaning - 'very small ' ... its exactly the same ..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is a boxing ring square?~~

well, because it is far more efficient, making a circle of ropes to withstand what they do would be near on impossible .. it is much more sensible .. also, it used to be a ring from the days when gypsies used to gather round in a big circle (ring) .. and to fighters would stand in the middle of the ring and push fuck outta each other for cash ...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?~~

practice just means ongoing it is the same for alot of things, a practicing author, practicing psychologist .. i suppose it just something that cant be understood to a maximum .. like theoretically you cant get a practicing postman after he knows his job inside out.. because once he knows it all ... thats it .. other things just are ever developing with human understanding ... berrrrrr i dunno
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?~~

errrrmmm .. i dunno ...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the third hand on the watch called second hand?~~

the 3rd hand isnt really part of the whole thing, he is just the decider of what time it is .. he moves to quick to give his a real place, you dont say its 10 past 2 and 5 seconds .. so the second hand gets bagged off

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

everyone's rushing to get home as work finishes .. if you took peoples pulses and spoke to individuals in traffic jams on way home from work, you'd find them stressed and rushing .. wanting to get home form shitty work... for dinner that their wife should have on the table if she knows whats good for her ...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why is the word dictionary in the dictionary?~~

because it is a word .. and words are in the dictionary ... daftest question i ever heard ..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?~~

what fuck off ... why isnt there a word for the back of the neck, back of the hand , side of the face , because it is your foot ... thats what its called, and if you want to be specific you say where abouts for whatever reason..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?~~
because it is marketed to us not them ... they cant read
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why can't they make the whole plane out of the same substance that little indestructible black box is?~~

what ? what black box ... ive never heard of this ... sounds awfully racist and i for one am not amused..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?~~

because it has ure age on, you can use a passport aswell ... but your not aloud on planes pissed out ure skull .. it just a government recognised form of identification to say you are you with a photo and an age

yeeeeeeahhhhhhhh !!!!! crab -5000 --- fritzl - 0

---------- Post added at 17:26 ---------- Previous post was at 17:22 ----------

Why do they use steralised needles during death by lethal injection?
to stop the injector catching anything.. same as any injection, theres rules and laws ... that cant just be dropped for this certain situation .. you have to use sterile needles and gloves when injecting family members, they also use a sharpes box .. its just rules ... it keeps the whole process cleaner , and also i guess .. its to make sure 100% its the injected liquid that has killed them .. and not something that was on the needle or some other contamination, as you have to prove how they died on paper ect ect .. well try anyway ...
