Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?

What is the speed of darkness?

Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up every two hours?

If the temperature is zero outside today and it's going to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold will it be?

Do married people live longer than single ones or does it only seem longer?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?


Did you ever stop and wonder.......

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze
these pink dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?'

Who was the first person to say, 'See that chicken there... I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta it's bum.'

Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

Why does your Gynaecologist leave the room when you get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs !

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Stop singing and read on......

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?

Why do they call politicians "Honorable"?
Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

Answers within the text below.

razzledazzle wrote:Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard when he lives in the jungle without a razor?
He uses sharp stone to shave. And his genetics are such that his facial hair is sparse.

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat?
To create a better contact if the user is unsure whether the batteries are flat or the contact is dirty.

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough?
Because, while there are insufficient funds for the amount on the cheque, there are sufficient funds for the fee.

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
To ensure that they do not sustain a head injury before reaching their destination.

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
Because one is easy to verify and the other is difficult.

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?
Because those who define the condition do not necessarily have the condition.

What is the speed of darkness?
Zero. For absolute darkness.

Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up every two hours?
Not all babies wake up with that frequency.

If the temperature is zero outside today and it's going to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold will it be?
It depends what the other reference point is.

Do married people live longer than single ones or does it only seem longer?
Yes.

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
Wheeled luggage was used prior to the lunar landing.

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
Because it is a unique experience to view objects from that perspective.


Did you ever stop and wonder.......

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze
these pink dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?'
A person who simply observed what a calf was doing.

Who was the first person to say, 'See that chicken there... I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta it's bum.'
A person who saw chickens depositing their ovum many times.

Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?
Because not all material put in a toaster has the same burn rate and time.

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?
I have a light in my freezer.

Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don't point to their bum when they ask where the bathroom is?
Because not all people need to defecate when using the bathroom.

Because they do not need to see the process of undressing or any other preparation prior to their medical examination.

Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours? They're both dogs !
They are cartoons. Not real.

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?
They test ones ability.


If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?
Petroleum byproducts.

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?
No. Morality comes from the human psyche and may include morons, but not exclusively.

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
It isn't precisely the same.

Stop singing and read on......

Do illiterate people get the full effect of Alphabet Soup?
Yes. They still recognize the random letters in the soup. Literate people do not get a better effect from such random letters.

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?
I haven't noticed a dog getting mad at me when I blow in their face.

Does pushing the elevator button more than once make it arrive faster?
No. But if there is a concern that the first press didn't actuate the circuit, then it is worthwhile to press it again.
