More Questions That Need Answered

I Need Answers

I Need Answers

Last year at about this time I had some questions that I needed answers for and this year I have some more.

  • Why don’t all doors have a light switch on it that automatically turns on a light like a refrigerator?  Perhaps an on/off/dimmer switch would be required so that you wouldn’t startle someone who was in the process of dozing off in their bedroom.  I think it would be especially neat for closets and would save many toes from painfully finding the corner of a piece of furniture late at night.  Is this too much to ask?
  • How hard is it really to put a man on the moon when so many other mundane things appear to be more difficult?   For example, see above.
  • Why do they call it dry cleaning?  Is it better than calling it chemical solvent cleaning of cloth and cloth based products?
  • What is the percentage of cars that have gloves in their glove box?  What is the percentage of cars that have documents such a registration card and proof of insurance in it?  My guess is that the number for gloves is a single digit number and for documents it is a two digit number greater than 80.  If so, why is it not called a document compartment?  Has glove usage drastically declined in the last 50 years?
  • When the top speed on a car was 15 miles an hour, was there a need for speed limits?
  • If all squares are rectangles what was Potsie on the TV show Happy Days?
  • Why is it called a grilled cheese sandwich when the cheese is melted and the bread is grilled?  Perhaps it should be called a cheese melt?  Have you ever grilled cheese?  It is not a thing of beauty and very messy.
  • Why is it called a bedroom and not a sleep room?  We call it a bathroom not a tub room?  I think we need consistency in our room naming convention.  Either name it after the object located in the room or the activity that takes place in it.

Have a great week as summer officially begins on Friday June 21st.

  1. I like this idea… I am going to steal it and implement it once I have formulated some of those life questions. Nice one! 😀
