    because when the batteries are borderline, pressing harder improves the conduction between the conductive pad and the circuit board. you learn that pressing harder increases the likely hood of success with weak battereies. You extend this behavior beyond the point of uselessness

    Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is
    not enough?
    because they can. Thats why they have all the money:D

    Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
    it's a trade-off between the risk of trusting another person, and the effort needed to test the assertion.

    Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?
    usually because the bottle eliminates one of the factors required for the sticking action of the glue - for a glue that dries, the bottle eliminates the opportunity for the solvent to evapourate, for a glue that sets, it excludes the reaction agent, or reaction site

    Why do they use sterilised needles for death by lethal injection?
    They are pretending to be civilised. :mad:

    Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?
    poor nutrition?:D

    Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a
    revolver at him?
    does he? :chin:

    Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
    it was cold in those things, physical protection increased the likelyhood of them reaching their objective, and they provide psychological protection, allowing the pilot to feel safe, and so defer the panic reaction until it was too late to miss

    What is the speed of darkness?
    -c :D
    film_buff wrote:

    Are there specially reserved parking spaces for "normal" people at the
    Special Olympics?
    no X(

    If you send someone 'Styrofoam', how do you pack it?
    in bubble wrap, inside a thin cardboard box surrounded by expanded polystyrene chips, inside a corrugated cardboard box

    If the temperature is zero outside today and it's going to be twice as cold
    tomorrow, how cold will it be?
    -20c. Today it is 20 below the average temperature

    If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
    speciation. Humans and other primates evolved from a comman ape ancestor :rolleyes:

    If it's true that we are here to help others, what are the others doing
    here?
    helping you by providing you with someone to help :p

    If someone with a split personality threatens to commit suicide, is it a
    hostage situation?
    yes. often with tragic consequences X(

    Can you cry under water?
    yes :rolleyes:

    What level of importance must a person have , before they are considered
    assassinated instead of just murdered?
    the difference between murder and assaination is motive, not target :rolleyes:

    Why does a round pizza come in a square box?
    a cuboid is an easy shape to fold, pizza boxes take their strength from the folds. Expanded polystyrene clamshells are bad for the enironment, and are more expensive.

    How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a
    good idea to put wheels on bigger suitcases ?
    we used to be practical. now we are conned by gimmics - be honest when have the wheels built into suitcases ever worked :D

    If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?
    yes. If the judge was deaf, on the other hand, the question would be more interesting

    Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars
    to look at things on the ground?
    because you get a far greater choice of things to observe

    Why do doctors, when they ask you to strip, leave the room or close the
    cubicle curtain while you change? ..... They're still going to see you naked
    anyway.
    because undressing is a submissive act, and it isn't neccessary for the doctor see you undress, so you are spared that shame. Being seen naked is merely embarassing

    Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
    Because you can't literally count the stars... but you can poke a fence.

    It's an onamatapea {spl)

    Special Olympics?

    No, why should there be?

    If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

    are you and fiend confused? the question is referring to the paralympics, thus assuming that most attendees will require disabled parking spaces, and then the "minority" requiring "special" parking spaces would be able people...

    Yes, I know, I just thought it might be considered insulting as it implies that disabled people are not normal because of the way it was phrased.
