Questions to question

None of us can claim that we know everything. Questions arise all the time that I cannot answer. How about you?

I've discovered a list of questions that have baffled me and made me think about them even more. You give it a tr and see how many you can answer - and how many you will just scratch your head and say, "I've never thought about that?".

* How old are you before it can be said you died of old age?

* If humans evolved from monkey's/apes, why are they still here?

* Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

* Why is it said that an alarm clock is going off when really its coming on?

* Why are both of Spongebob's parents round like sea sponges while he is square like a kitchen sponge?

* If you pamper a cow, do you get spoiled milk?

* Why is it that if someone yells "duck" they are helping you, but if they yell "chicken" they are insulting you?

* Why do you put two cents in when its only a penny for your thoughts?

* Why do we sing "Rock a bye baby" to lull our little ones to sleep when the song is about putting your baby in a tree and letting the wind crash the cradle to the ground?

* Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

* Why is it when your sleeping it`s called drool but when your awake its called spit?

* If a teacher were to teach a younger grade than they were teaching before, would they be "degraded"?

* How come people tell you to stay a kid for as long as you can. Yet the moment you do anything childish or immature they tell you to grow up.

* Why does the Easter bunny carry eggs? Rabbits don't lay eggs.

* If ketchup is good on french fries, how come it isn't good on mashed potatoes?

* Where do all the daylight savings hours go?

* Why when people ask you "what three things would you bring with you on a desert island?" no one ever replies, "A BOAT"

* Why does it say "shake well" on ketchup bottles, but not ketchup packets?

* Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why does it say do not use before work with heavy machinery on the back of children's Tylenol? Could we save that many people by getting those darn 5- year-olds with headcolds off those forklifts!

* If you only have one eye...are you blinking or winking?
