Points to Ponder...

Here are a few samples from a great list of thinkables:

Where do the Iragis get all those American flags that they are always burning on TV?

When we see a gull fly over the sea we call it a seagull, so if we see it flying over a bay, should we call it a bagel?

How come the dove gets to be the peace symbol? How about the pillow? It has more feathers than the dove, and it doesn't have that dangerous beak.

How come a dog hates it when you blow in its face, but hangs its head out the window when you are driving?

If you named your dog "Stay" and you taught him to obey your commands, what would the dog do if you said "Come, Stay."?

Are female moths called myths?

Considering the way the human eye works, in that it takes an image and flips it upsidedown, is everything upside down to start with so that you actually see it rightsideup?

What happened to the first 6 up's? We do we only see 7 up?

If a candle factory burns down, does everyone just stand around and sing Happy Birthday?

If crime doesn't pay, does that mean my job is a crime?

Why do they insist on putting up those signs that say "In case of fire do not use elevator"? Wouldn't most people try to use water rather than an elevator?

If all the nations in the world are in debt, where did all the money go?
Can fat people go skinny-dipping?

They say we're 98% water. How many glasses of water can we safely drink before drowning?

Why is it that no piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times? (Try it!)

If you take a shower, where do you put it?

What do people in China call their good plates?

A mirror inverts everything left to right. Why doesn't it invert top to bottom as well?

And the best of them all:

Can a person with no eyebrows really look surprised?

Happy Pondering!


Steven, keeping up with your blog is going to be difficult since you are adding SO MUCH MORE as you struggle to stay awake each night. I know your pain and would that I could have blogged my time away back in the MICU. I love these "points to ponder". I got some good laughs.
