10 Weird Things We All Wonder About

Thursday, May 15, 2008
95% of you reading this will think to yourself, “I have thought about that before… It is kind of weird.” Not saying we think about these things often, but they sometimes DO cross our mind!

What do people think of me?
You know you sometimes wonder what people think about you.. Does my hair look good today? How about my clothes? Does my breath smell good? Face it, no matter how much you say you don't care about what people think of you, you know you care. Even if it is just a little bit…
Why is the word “abbreviation” so flippin' long?
You'd think a word that means to shorten something… would be short, right? Wrong. The genius that um.. I guess, made this word? Well, he wanted to make things hard for everyone. I think about this everyday, it gets under my skin.
Why do they put round pizza in square boxes?
I've pondered this ever since I was a little kid. Really, I don't understand. If someone has an answer to this, please let me know. Circular boxes would be pretty damn cool if you ask me.
If the whole, “i after e, except before c” really applied to the English language, wouldn't “science” be spelled wrong?
I always went by that rule in grammar school. One day I had a spelling test and spelled the word “science” like “sceince”. When I got my test back and saw it was incorrect I was all like, “YOU CAN'T SPELL. I'M RIGHT” and went on a rampage. I asked my teacher why it was wrong and how come the rule didn't apply to that word… She had no answer for me. The English language is so confusing.
Why do men have nipples?
I never understood this. We all know the purpose of the nipples on a female, but what about a male? They're just kind of hanging out there.. no purpose in life. They're probably really depressed.
If you ate pasta and antipasti, would you still be hungry?
Hahaha. Someone asked me this a while ago and I've thought about it ever since. It's a silly thing to think about, but it actually had me thinking. I get bored, can you tell? Oh well.
Why do people count sheep when they can't sleep?
What's so special about sheep? Why can't we count dogs? Why not cats? How about dinosaurs? Or aardvarks… The world will never know.
Why do banks charge you a "non-sufficient funds fee"?
If you have no money… Why do they charge you for the money that you don't even have? I think it sucks that you have to have 5 dollars, or whatever the amount is, in your bank account at all times. Dumbest rule ever. Banks suck.
What happens when we die?
Is it just like sleeping? Except we don't wake up.. Is there an afterlife? Does your soul live on? Does your life really flash before your eyes like it's said to? It's something everyone wonders about but doesn't really want to find out. No one will ever really know for sure, but it's fun to wonder about it, I guess.
What is the average air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Classic. If you don't know what that means, you need to go watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail because you definitely missed out.

For the pizza box question, square boxes are sturdier and easier to make.
