Points to ponder.........

Saturday, October 13, 2012

What is listed as the hair colour on a drivers license of a bald headed man?

What sees a blind man when he's dreaming?

Where do they get the seeds to plant seedless watermelons?

Who puts the thin ice sign in the middle of the thin ice?

Why are cigarettes sold in gas stations when smoking is prohibited there?

Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?

Why are they called apartments when they are together.

Why are wise men and wise guys the exact opposites?

Why call it a building if it's already been built?

Why can't life's problems hit us when we're 17 and know everything?

    Thin ice signs are not put on the ice (only in cartoons and movies) because then they'd fall through and pollute the water, and you wouldn't see the sign until you were already on the thin ice. The signs are put on the shore. The ice on water melts at the shore first (excluding warmer bodies like the ocean, lakes filled from rivers that don't freeze over, or expansive lakes like the great lakes), since there's less water to heat and more grasses to spread the heat. (MN is the land of 10,000 lakes... or actually over 11,000 lakes of an acre or more.)

The interstates in Hawaii are technically intrastate highways, but the funding that's used to creat and maintain them gives legal reasoning to call them interstates.

Wise men versus wise guys - well, there's a reason why we tend to call groups of males "guys" instead of "men"... they're not always the smartest. Why do you think they just call us women? We don't need anything additional to show how smart we are. haha

As Teddyteddy said, the blind dream in sound (unless they were blinded when older and remember sight), the deaf dream in vivid picture (unless they went deaf when older and remember sound), and those missing limbs often don't have them in their dreams (unless they lost the limb when they were older and remember it being there). Now think about this: someone who has been in a coma for years and are still able to dream probably dream about themselves as they were before, as they won't know how they look now.

Bald men often have their original hair color. If the hair grows back it will either be the same or grey/white.

Seedless fruit are grown from the genetically modified seeds of regular fruit. Just like only some types of corn can be used to seed next years crop, and these are not usually fed to humans or animals.

They have to sell cigarettes somewhere, so why not somewhere 'convenient'? You could also say why do they sell food in stores when you can't eat it in the store - it's essentially the same thing.

You missed a very profound question, one of my favorites: why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?

    NA (color of hair of bald man)..

The blind man dreams in sound and the deaf man dreams in technicolor silence.

Interstate highways in Hawaii? The Federal government footed the bill.

The rest are mysteries.....except the cigarettes for sale at the gas station...purely a profit thing.....
