Did ya ever wonder

Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?

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

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

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

Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?

Why is a boxing ring square?



Why is it called lipstick if you can still move your lips?

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

Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?

Why is it that rain drops but snow falls?

Why is it that to stop Windows 95, you have to click on "Start"?



Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address,
you turn down the volume on the radio?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor,
and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why is the third hand on the watch called a second hand?



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

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

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

How come we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

How come sheep don't shrink when it rains but a
wool sweater does when you wash it?

Most "glues" are air-activated, and there isn't enough air in the bottle to initiate the chemical reaction. This is why the glue on the end of the spout dries up.

Psychics don't win the lottery, because they are full of poo.

It's called lip-stick because it (or its supposed to anyway) sticks to you lips and not whatever they touch.

Coffin lids are nailed down (or were) to keep little critters from going after your decomposing flesh that they find tasty.

Rain and snow both "fall". I've never heard someone say "the rain is dropping outside". Rain comes in the form of drops, however, where snow more traditionally comes in flakes.

Most people turn down or turn off the radio as it's background noise and will reduce their concentration, or so they beleive.

Real lemon juice is considered by most people to be too harsh to the taste, where as artificial is not. Also, the amount of lemons requried to make a bottle of juice for consuming is far less than the amount needed for industrial/commerical uses.

It's called the second-hand because it measures.....wait for it... Seconds!

Rush hour is called so because everyone is rushing to/from work... hence the larger volume of traffic moving at a slower pace.

Cats do not eat mice for their taste. The small, quick moving objects activate their predator instinct, and they kill it. Sharks dont eat humans because we taste better, it's because they see us as seals or other sea animals.

UV lightens our hair because it is dead protein, except for the follicle. Much like newspaper turns yellow in the sun, because it is dead wood. Our skin darkens because it is living tissue and reacting to the UV to protect itself (The Fifth Element, anyone?)

Not all women open their mouths while putting on mascara, but most think that by doing this it's allowing them to open their eyes wider.

And I think the top of your foot is actually called the dorsal surface.

Just so you all know, If I think you're an ******* I will gladly tell you. I'm not your everyday girl, so don't expect me to act like one. And yeah, I do like it topless and dirty!

Nope not screws either, just a single lock like a cabinet door lock. Sad to say I've had to pick out a few coffins in my day.

"How come," is poor grammar.

I would imagine it has something to do with the sheep having skin, and natural wool usually isn't chemically treated or enhanced with other fibers, and because sheep are not put through the warm/hot cycle on washing machines. Similarly, they are not run through the dryer, but air dried.

4.6 stroker, 2wd, 5spd, larger sway bars front and rear, 3.55s, KJ 16's.
