I have always wondered whether a fly, flying inside a plane in flight and not sitting on anything, added weight to the plane.

If I melt dry ice, can I swim without getting wet?

I always wondered if Bugs Bunny could really jump out of an airplane within a few feet of hitting the ground, and not get tore up...LOL. He had some kind of explaination, like "airbrakes", but I still wonder...LOL. By the way, how do nursing students have extra time to figure this stuff out? LOL

Oh yeah, why do I (and probably some of you) set my clocks 10+ minutes fast? I know they're fast, and I have to constantly figure the extra time in my mind. At least I am not usually late...LOL. Later...

Why do all boxes of raison bran have two scoops, little boxes, big boxes, in-between boxes all have two scoops.....

I've always wondered why people, when looking for a number on a house or business, always turn down their radio in the car. I do this. What does the radio have to do with looking?:eek:

When someone asks the time because they have no watch, why do they look at there own wrist? :confused: Odviuosly your watch isn't there, if it was we wouldn't be talking would we?

Why don't overweight people live on the FIRST floor? Why are all the skinney people on the first floor healthy?;)

why are the sky and the ocean blue? (you had to know that at least that first one was coming up eventually...)

why do people say, "Eww, this tastes nasty!! Here, you try it!"

-yeah, I want to try it after you told me it was disgusting! :p

why are some people more ticklish than others, what makes you ticklish? (me being one of those who is so ticklish I can't even get a back massage or my belly examined at the doctor's without pulling away and breaking out in hysterical giggles :chuckle, and others are not at all!! not fair!)

Oh wait, here's another one...

Why do you park on a driveway, yet drive on a parkway?

How come, if a person accidentally touches something liquid or gooey on something like a stair railing, they always smell it?

And I've also wondered if you lived near an incense factory, would it always smell good all around your house?

Also, I wonder how many leaves there are on every tree in the world. I know there's no number that high, but can you imagine if you had to count them all?! :eek:

I also wondered why chicken is part white and part dark meat. What is it that makes the difference?

The answer to my question was found at http://www.straightdope.com. You all will surely find the site interesting.

to quote a song from captain kangaroo:

who put the food in the market, and tell me how high are the moon and the stars and i wanna know why, the rain comes down from out of the sky, who put the grooves in the record and how do things fly? I'm just about to bust from curiosity so please tell me how we get electricity, who put the picture on my TV tell me how things work cause its a mystery to me!;)

personally ive often wondered why we wear a bra but a PAIR of panties (we have two breasts the same as we have two legs!)

also why are panties hose colors called nude (as if everyone is the exact same color?!):rolleyes:
