This is a thread for questions......ANY topic. Just things you've never dared ask, or maybe questions that you didn't think were worthy of their own thread. ;) Not necessarily dumb questions either!

My question of the day:

Somebody just told me this, and I was wondering if it was true. Does wal-mart really only sell edited cds?

I guess I'm cerebrally challanged, too, because I have *always* wondered this!!!!! I would love to find out why!!!

Great thread, Amy!! Are you familiar with the book "Imponderables"? Its full of life's mystery questions and answers all kinds of questions like these.

I wanna know why there are never enough buns in a pkg -- or why there are too many hotdogs/turkeydogs in a pkg.

And why are there 13 in a baker's dozen? For taste-testing purposes?

:confused:

:D

baker's dozen, noun.

Thirteen (instead of twelve).
The term came into use during a period when there were heavy penalties for selling short weight.
Bakers would therefore supply an extra quantity of loaves to avoid the risk of a fine.

My GranMom always kept a cookie jar full of *Fresh* plain cake donuts in her pantry. If the Baker himself had waited on Grammy, there were ALWAYS 13 in the bag! :) I once asked if he couldn't *count*? She said "No, that's his way of *thanking* me for being a good customer." ;)
An poor ole #13 never made it into the cookie jar! :D

That's not true. Color is not related to sex in schnauzers ... or in any dog that I'm aware of. I groom several black, female schnauzers. Some colors/patterns of cats are linked to sex ... i.e. female calicos.

Here's my dumb question:

A chicken or duck or whatever lays a certain number of eggs before they begin to set on them. This is called a "clutch" of eggs. Let's say the size of the clutch is 26 eggs ... so the bird lays an egg every day for 26 days, but it doesn't set on the eggs until they are all laid. So ... for almost a month, the eggs are just laying there in the nest. The temperature can vary a lot depending on where this is .... over 100 degrees to below freezing at night. So ... after the 26th day, the bird sets on the eggs and all the babies hatch weeks later, right? Why don't the eggs get rotten or go bad during those days before the bird starts to set on them? And all the eggs hatch the same day, basically. So the babies inside only start to grow once the bird starts setting on them? What happens before? They just sit there in suspended animation? Creepy!!!!!!

I've often wondered that--all 24 hour convenience stores have locks--why?????????

And, like Anna, I get asked tons of dumb questions at work. Every weekend, we have seafood specials. The seafood gets flown in so it's fresh, and we have scallops, mussels, crabcakes, and salmon. The special starts on Friday, and Saturday, and if there are some left, it continues til Sunday. We have a "special board' where they are all written. It is unbelievable the amount of people who come in on Sunday for dinner, read the special on the board (last week it was chicken marsala, for example), and then ask for the salmon. And these are all people who come here all the time, apparently they think we have a secret salmon stash somewhere:rolleyes:

Why are the speed zones reduced in front of schools during the school day? Don't we assume all the kids are inside the schools, learning away? Shouldnt the school speed zones be in effect when kids are OUT OF SCHOOL? Like, all summer long?

I have NEVER understood why ATMs have braille. First, are you driving while blind? OHHHHH I understand, you are walking in a area cars normally drive through...and you wonder why you are run over like a pancake, and now need those stick figure spots that Richard was making fun of?


ALRIGHT- one more, WHY WHY WHY do you have to enter your account number on those automated phone lines, and the FIRST thing the person that answers says? "Can I have your account number, please?". What, was that just a digit exercise???

chemistry! Cincy's Mom might be able to verify this but here's my stab at an answer:

When Draino interacts with the water, a chemical change occurs -- it "melts" (maybe attacks/loosens is a better word) the goop and the water flushes it away. I remember creating a version of draino in chemistry but darned if I can remember what ingredients were used-- dish soap was one.

Been wondering about this for awhile now,
how old does a puppy have to be to leave his mother? I don't know much about dogs. Before, my sister's friend got a new dog, 5 weeks old. I thought of a kitty, who could only leave the mother when they reach at least 8 weeks.
So how old does a puppy have to be?

Cheshirekatt
05-16-2003, 06:16 PM
Eight to ten weeks is best. They can leave earlier, but it's not good for them. It's best if they can have at least one of their shots first before they leave. Gives them a little extra protection.


Here's my dumb question:

Why will dogs refuse to eat perfectly good dog food, but will gladly graze out of the litter box for kitty rocca?

Vet told me that cat food has nurtients that dog food doesn't, the cat's body doesn't use all of these nutrients so some of it ummm comes out the other end. Presto, mini buffet for the puppers.

My question though: How do the dogs know that the nutrients are in there and that they don't get them in their food?

What do you read here?
GODISNOWHERE

If you see GOD IS NOWHERE (like most people do), it shows how man tend to lok at things the more negative way. What you show have read was GOD IS NOW HERE.

Just a stupid thing :)

Actually, it isn't just a stupid thing ;) When the Bible was first written, the Hebrew it was written in had no spaces between any of the words. People translating the Bible had to figure out where the spaces should have been. Therefore, it's pretty good evidence that the Bible is interpreted. Because it was never originally written in English, no one can really say for sure what the original meanings were, because there aren't specific translations from Hebrew to English, and sometimes the "closest match" isn't necessarily the correct meaning. I learned this in my University course about the Bible and it's literature.

Mind you, I'm a waitress so I get asked alot of dumb questions:rolleyes:


Here's one for you, Anna. This is not my story. This actually happened to Gillian Anderson once. A patron ordered the mixed fish stew. When Gillian brought it out, the lady kind of poked at it a bit with her fork while making the kind of face people make when they smell something bad.

The lady said, "Oh, I didn't realize there was FISH in this."

Gillian said she turned beet red and replied through clenched teeth, "MIXED. . .FISH. . .STEW. Which one of these three words didn't you get??"

As for me, I work at an electronics store. Yet one more place that gets flooded with stupid questions every day, like when people want us to test their cordless phones, we need the entire phone, including the power supply. People will bring in just the handset, or just the base. Or everything but the power supply.

We tell them, "We will need the power supply, so we can test that too and see if that's the problem."

Standard response: "What's a power supply?"

Me: "The thing that plugs the phone into the electrical outlet."

Them: "You mean this?" And they proceed to show me the telephone cord.

Me: (sighing softly) "No. That's the telephone cord. I need the power supply, also called the power adapter. The thing that plugs into the electrical outlet."

Them: "Uh. . .I don't get it."

*sigh* At this point, I usually shake my head in disbelief and try again. The same exchange is then repeated several times until the customer gets it, if at all.

What do you mean He's dead?!?!?!?!?! :mad::mad::mad::rolleyes::rolleyes::mad::mad::mad:

WE are the ones that die. God was always here and will always be here. He's our creator. Without God, we wouldn't be here! Who do you think created us? God will NEVER die, and that's a HIGHLY offensive statement btw.

Oh, and btw, the meaning of life.............from my perspective is:

To worship our Creator, who created us from nothing, gave us health, provides us with food and shelter and family, shows us mercy, and is the greatest being and Only ONE worthy of worship that exists.

Life also means to be kind to your fellow human beings, to show mercy to animals, and to love all of God's living creatures; to be just, to be considerate, to not break a promise, to be kind to the poor, to help orphans and widows, and to be a good person and do good deeds that will benefit you in both this world and in the hereafter.

That kind of thing is all a matter of opinion. I'm a strong believer in God (thought I don't go to church, read the Bible ect...) and unless your friend wrote this down to offend someone on purpose, I don't see why she/he should have gotten into trouble.
I don't think they should have done it but a suspension is a bit far. :rolleyes:

Here's a collection of dumb questions from lawyers. (hope we don't have any like them on Pet Talk!)

Actual Court Transcripts...

Just when you thought lawyers couldn't ruin their public image any more ...
Believe it or not, the following excerpts and quotes are parts of actual, real transcripts from cases that occurred in courts across the United States ...

Q: Doctor, did you say he was shot in the woods?
A: No, I said he was shot in the lumbar region.

Q: Are you married?
A: No, I'm divorced.
Q: And what did your husband do before you divorced him?
A: A lot of things I didn't know about.

Q: Doctor, how many autopsies have you performed on dead people?
A: All my autopsies have been performed on dead people.

Q: Were you acquainted with the defendant?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: Before or after he died?

Q: Did he pick the dog up by the ears?
A: No.
Q: What was he doing with the dog's ears?
A: Picking them up in the air.
Q: Where was the dog at this time?
A: Attached to the ears.

Q: When he went, had you gone and had she, if she wanted to and were able, for the time being excluding all the restraints on her not to go, gone also, would he have brought you, meaning you and she, with him to the station?
MR. BROOKS: Objection. That question should be taken out and shot.

Q: What is your relationship with the plaintiff?
A: She is my daughter.
Q: Was she your daughter on February 13, 1979?

Q: ...and what did he do then?
A: He came home, and next morning he was dead.
Q: So when he woke up the next morning he was dead?

Q: Could you see him from where you were standing?
A: I could see his head.
Q: And where was his head?
A: Just above his shoulders.

Q: Do you drink when you're on duty?
A: I don't drink when I'm on duty, unless I come on duty drunk.

Q: (Showing man picture.) Is that you?
A: Yes, sir.
Q: And you were present when the picture was taken, right?

Q: Was that the same nose you broke as a child?
A: I have only one, you know.

Q: And was he dead when you performed the autopsy?
A: No, you idiot, he was sitting up on the table wondering why I was doing an autopsy!

Hope I never need the services of any of them! :eek:

I find that the power cord is loose going into the back of the CPU. So I tell the user what the problem is and the reply I get is "Oh, I was playing around with that. I didn't know it needed to be plugged in!"

why not birth to death because truly death is oppisite of birth.. so if someone compares life to death i think there is no point.. Life are many points and birth is one important point as well as death.. so i dont think people should compare life to death cuz truly there not oppisite.;)

OMG you don't even know the full story! This is my THIRD time in braces!! Yes folks, that's right......three times! It totally sucked this time because my teeth were perfectly straight when we put the braces on for the third time, but we had to with the jaw surgery.

It was actual licks, which is why it took all day. I remember a little why we did it.....I think we were talking about old commercials in class one day and it became a BIG thing so I tried it. I tried it once before but I lost count. :o


But for anyone else who wants to try this, one word of advice: DRINK PLENTY OF WATER while doing so. Plus it speeds it up a little lol. :p

What's more annoying is not being able to reach the middle of your back to wash or scub it, or when you have an itch and you can't scratch it because you can't reach it. Urrgh it makes me so frustrated!

ok I have a dumb question...
WHY do they put the light switches so far from the door frame? so you can go into a dark room, and fiddle around trying to find the stupid switch?...:confused: just seems to me that it should be somewhat closer, so you don't have to go into the room to reach it.

I know why! I work with wiring...cause there are regulations. They have to be so many inches apart from phone and studs and whatnot.

Here's my question:
Why do the they put coupons inside the pasta boxes? Then you go to dump the pasta in the pan and the coupon falls into the boiling water! It irks me!!!!:mad:

They should make it a part of the box - saves paper and doesn't fall in in the water:)

why do the manufactures put a label on a hairdryer that says do not use while asleep?

when was the last time you styled your hair in your sleep?

kittens
06-26-2003, 02:20 PM
LOL because they have to cover their a**, from idiots that , I don't know, might leave it turned on and aimed at their hair? same reason why they have to say, do not use while in water!

its scary the warnings out there, if they did not have the warnings, would someone actually DO one of those things? and they are allowed out with out a keeper?!

ok another question... WHY do they make every single thing SOOO hard to open? it seems that EVERYTHING is a real pain to open. from the smallest thing to big things, food and non food. and my arthritis makes it worse but even without that it would still be hard to do. just once if I could open something without a scissors or knife!

It's funny that you mention that! When I was living at home my mom had this ancient hair dryer that consisted of a fan/motor/heater, a hose, and something that acted like a shower cap which, when turned on, blew up like a balloon. When I was going somewhere spiffy (like a dance, or something) and wanted curly hair, I'd roll my hair in curlers and dry them using this contraption. I'd often set my alarm clock for about 45 minutes and go to sleep with it on! I wonder if the manufacturer's warning had something to do with people like me! :D

13. You know the expression, "Don't quit your day job?" Well what do you say to people that work nights?

15. Why do all superheroes wear spandex?:D

16. If mars had earthquakes would they be called marsquakes?

17. If a missing person sees their picture on a milk carton that offers a reward, would they get the money?

18. If the president were gay, would his husband be the first man?

19. Why do people call it an ATM machine, but they know it's really saying Automated Teller Machine Machine?
