Why, Why, Why

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

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

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the va cuum one more chance?

Why don't you ever hear father-in-law jokes?

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

i read the title and a song titled "Why" comes to my mind.
but there's always a limit of thinking and asking questions "Why" making you feel tired.
I'm still trying to guess the singer and remember the song but I'll stop now.

Salam A.Adam,
Well the good news is MusicLover should be able to answer that question for you. ;-) I think what prompted me to post this "why" email that I got is because it reminds me of Amira and all children her age----they ask sooooooooooooo many questions that one can't help but smile.

LOOOOL, I'm not certain but I must have woke up on the right side of the bed this morning because all three of you made me laugh.

Anglo-Libyan, your smiley face next to the why questions regarding lethal injection made me chuckle.

A.Adam, it seems you've been freed to ask Musiclover more than one "why" question. Good job! :-)

Ahmed, LOL@bully father-in-laws. Too funny.

I always press the buttons harder on my remote when i know the batteries are almost dead . . . also, I bang it on my hand to try to mix up the juices . . .Why not? That's what doctors do to people when they're almost dead . . . bang on their chest, then shake them up with those defibrilators (I think that's what they're called.)Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but you have to try.

I also go to my refrigerator looking for new food in hopes that something will look good the millionth time I try! Almost never works, oh well!!

ibeebarbie said...

I'VE MISSSSSSED YOU. I know you understand my exaggerated spelling. :-) I laughed so hard on the vacuum example because I've done that. I've also done the remote thingy like you. So much so that that's how Amira thinks it works and she hits it too. LOL

Hi Ya B !
Yes a good post and thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.


Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?

sometimes press so hard I think my thumb will go right through the darn thing LOL! My kids used to bite them to get more out of them , and dont ask me were they got that from ......

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

This drives me nuts every time I take a bubble bath I expect the coloured bubbles but get white instead . Do I stop at that? No ,I continue to search different brand names lol.

I'll give you another WHY

Why do good friends lie and leave you, when you least expect them??


Mixed Up Me said...

I just thought of another one . . . WHY do I always drive faster when I'm almost out of gas?. . .as if getting to the gas station faster is really going to make the empty tank last longer!!!

He who has a why to live
can bear almost any how.

I read this somewhere.

Salam UT,
One of my remote controls doesn't have a functioning button anymore because we pushed it so As to your last "why" question, I can only say we are terribly human in our actions sometimes.

Oh MixedUpMe, I do just the opposite. I feel if I driver slower I'll preserve the gas---what a dork, huh?

Salam Enlightened Spirit--
AMEN SISTER. What great expression. Thanks for sharing.
