I know there are answers to some of these but I don't think they are good enough so I still ponder...and I usually have these random thoughts in the middle of the night...lol 

 

1.  Why do pantyhose have washing instructions on them.....I have yet to wear  a pair without running them thus throwing them out....   

2.  Why is there brail on Drive up ATMS??....and before you say people can walk up to them is it really safe to have blind people walking where people drive?? 

 3.    Who came up with the idea for tampons and how did that sales pitch go?? 

 4. Why is Kansas pronounced "CAN-SASS", but Arkansas is pronounced "R-CAN-SAW" 

 5.Why do people say "Cold as Hell"??  Isn't Hell hot? 

 6.What do other mammals do during "that time of a month"? 

 7. Who decided what color traffic lights would be? 

 8.  How come you don't get a refund from your insurance company at the end of the year??? If you don't use it shouldn't you get the money back... 

 9. Why do they price tags at the 99cent store? 

 10.  Why do people try to act in porns??...no one is watching it for the acting

I know there are answers to some of these but I don't think they are good enough so I still ponder...and I usually have these random thoughts in the middle of the night...lol 


1.  Why do pantyhose have washing instructions on them.....I have yet to wear  a pair without running them thus throwing them out....   

Some clear nail polish will stop a run in its tracks.

2.  Why is there brail on Drive up ATMS??....and before you say people can walk up to them is it really safe to have blind people walking where people drive??  Some blind people can drive. They have special cars. What I'm wondering is how they know what is on the ATM screen. The ATM screen is not in braille.

 3.    Who came up with the idea for tampons and how did that sales pitch go?? They developed from using paper and papyrus. O.O

 4. Why is Kansas pronounced "CAN-SASS", but Arkansas is pronounced "R-CAN-SAW" 

 5.Why do people say "Cold as Hell"??  Isn't Hell hot?  Hell Yes!

 6.What do other mammals do during "that time of a month"? They fuck. Only humans avoid sex during this time.

 7. Who decided what color traffic lights would be?  Railroads

 8.  How come you don't get a refund from your insurance company at the end of the year??? If you don't use it shouldn't you get the money back... That's why it's called insurance. You're paying for the 'just in case'.

 9. Why do they price tags at the 99cent store? Not everything at the 99 cents store is 99 cents. And, some people are really that dumb.

 10.  Why do people try to act in porns??...no one is watching it for the acting  Some people do

 11.   Will the ever run out of social security numbers??  No, they will add numbers, spaces, letters, etc.

 12.   Why does the doctor ask you what is wrong after you have already told the nurse and you saw her write it down in the chart? To hear in our own words? IDK, I find it annoying. Not all do, though.

 13.   Why can't doctors write neatly? They don't need to.

 14.   Why do people call your house and ask if you are home? Sometimes they call and ask if you've left.

15.   Why is it ok to walk around in a bikini but not in your bra and panties? Social conditioning.

16.   Why do cops ask you if you know they pulled you over? If they don't know what I was doing I sure as hell am not going to tell them They're trying to intimidate you and see if you will tell the truth. It makes their job a lot easier.

17.   Why do dentist talk to you while they are working on your teeth? To make you less nervous.

18.   Why to gynecologist apologize so much during exams???...if it was going to be pleasant it would be called a date.... I dunno, they should really only apologize if they're messing up.

19. Why do people go on the Maury show to hear their SOs confession? Money.

20. Is there any subject they won't make a reality show about? Seriously I don't want to watch real people anymore....give me a good sit-com please... Fa reals.

for the first time in my life, I have made six pair of pantyhose last through 40 workdays, and only run one pair of them.  I will never buy anything but CK again.

and ah, praise someone.  I found a dentist that doesn't try to yammer at me while he's got his hands shoved in my throat.  the only thing he said to me today was to explain what he was doing, while he was doing it, in four word bursts.  if I wasn't already married...

What made someone say 'Hey, I'm hungry, I'm going to eat that hard round thing that just came out of that chicken's ass.

What made someone say 'Hey, I know, I'm hungry and I think I'll eat that grape that's been sitting in the sun for a few days'.

What made someone say 'Hey, I know, I'm going to eat that cheese that has a ton of mold in it'

The answer to number 5 is there's a city, or town, in Michigan (I think) called Hell, and I hear it gets really cold there in the winter. (At least that's my theory for why they use that phrase, lol.)
