Things To Ponder!

Real Estate Agent with Eiglarsh Realty

I'm pondering why if I cut and paste a blog into AR, it's converting all of my capital letters to small case letters? What's up with that? Here's some other things to ponder: 

why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?

why are there interstate highways in hawaii?

if a black box in a plane is indestructible, why can't they make the whole plane out of it?

why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?

why is it so hard to remember how to spell 'mnemonic'?

if someone invented instant water, what would they mix it with?

why is it called a tv "set" when you only get one?

why does your nose run and your feet smell?

why does an alarm clock "go off" when it begins ringing?

if pro is the opposite of con, is progress the opposite of congress?

why does "cleave" mean both split apart and stick together?

if there is no god, who pops up the next kleenex in the box?

how do they get a deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

if it's tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

is there another word for thesaurus?

is the color orange called that because it's the color of the fruit of the same name, or was the fruit called orange because that's its color? which came first, the color or the fruit?

after eating, do amphibians have to wait one hour before getting out of the water?

how can there be self-help "groups"?

if white wine goes with fish, do white grapes go with sushi?

if a mute swears, does his mother make him wash his hands with soap?

if someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

instead of talking to your plants, if you yelled at them would they still grow, but only to be troubled and insecure?

David, these are too funny

And in NJ, I did ask the question to my banker about braille on the drive-up ATM......considering that seniors in the area outnumbered the non-seniors by about 5:3 and the response was reasonable but not funny

Now its time for both of us to get back to work!

Hi Leslie, Jewish holiday today. I'm "working" from home but not really working. Looking for some levity on what is supposed to be a "somber" day of fasting. Not into it!

why does your nose run and your feet smell? Well I think if your nose is running enough you cant smell your feet.
