Thursday Thirteen

Today I must ask some crazy questions:

1. Why do the folks with pets on Facebook think their animals can't spell or must speak in poor English?

2. How do you know which arm rest is yours when you're at the movie theater?

3. How far does east go?

4. When the fire house burns down, is that irony, bad luck, or something else?

5. If I'm doing the driving and you pass me, then you're speeding (and maybe I call you an idiot under my breath). If I pass you, there is no problem (I certainly don't call myself an idiot). What's up with that?

6. If pro and con are opposites, is the opposite of progress ... congress?

7. Is there any difference between normal ketchup and fancy ketchup?

8. If ghosts are not solid and can go through doors and walls, why don't they fall through the floor?

9. Do fish get electrocuted when lightning strikes the ocean? (If so, then how come we still have fish?)

10. Why are some lullabies so violent? (In Rock-A-Bye Baby the kid is in a tree that crashes to the ground.)

11. What does NASA call earthquakes on Venus? Venusquakes?

12. Why are donuts, pizza, and cookies round?

13. Who figured out you could take a cotton ball from a plant,turn it into thread, turn that into material, and then turn that into a shirt?


Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 270th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

  1. Good questions! LOL! And I've heard this, which relates to number five:

    Have you ever noticed that anyone driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone driving faster than you is a maniac?

    ;)

    Happy TT!

  5. 1. Because they are idiots? The people, I mean, not the pets.
    2. Both! if you're next to friends. Neither if you're alone. And isn't that unfair?
    3. All the way around. :)
    4. Irony.
    5. Beats me.
    6. lol
    7. Yep. The label. :)
    8. I have often wondered about that.
    9. Now I'm visualizing waves of electricity flashing through the ocean.
    10. Repressed parental fury?
    11. Seismic activity. Leave it to a scientist to come up with something like that.
    12. Mine aren't always. I like the round ones better.
    13. Probably the same guy who did the same with animal hair. (wool)

  10. Yeah, most of these have made the rounds, but still worth the chuckle of consideration. No.1 was new to me; I ignore FB animal & baby vids.

  11. How I love these! Esp. the FB one. Anytime I see "haz" or "wud," I shudder. And you bring up a good point with the cotton ball. I always wondered that about eggs.

  13. Not all donuts, pizza and cookies are round. But they all taste yummy no matter the shape.
