You Only Get the Right Answers If You Ask the Right Questions

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”


It’s Tuesday and we have another selection of those questions that are worth asking, but hardly anyone asks. Should we just accept thing the way they are, or should we start to question what is happening around us a little more?

Here we go. Enjoy!



You know the expression, ‘Don’t quit your day job?’

Well what do you say to people that work nights?



Why is the ‘0’ on a phone after the ‘1’ and not before the ‘1’?

Do pyromaniacs like to wear blazers?



If you don’t pay your exorcist, do you get repossessed?



Why is something funny called a ‘knee-slapper’ when you actually slap your thigh?



Why do we teach kids that violence is not the answer and then in school have them read about wars that solved problems?



If money doesn’t grow on trees then why do banks have branches?”



Why does someone believe you when you say something like, “There are four billion stars,” but check when you say the paint is wet?



What would happen if Batman got bitten by a vampire?



Why can’t we spell creativity however we want?



Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?”

  1. Knowing what can be in hot dogs, I think I’d prefer if Mickey Ds just leaves that market alone. 😯
    Technically, the “0” on the phone is really 10. That’s because the very early dialing system used a number of pulses for each number – 5 had five pulses, for instance. The equipment couldn’t understand no pulses, so 0 = ten. (And that’s what you get for letting the son of a 39-year Telephone company veteran on your blog! :p )
    And if you work nights, your day job is eating and sleeping, and who the HECK would want to quit THOSE?!? 😀

    • So no McFrankfurter for you.
      Interesting re the telephone. Of course if I had been designing it I would have put a 10 for 10 not a nought, but then again I would have stopped my computer with a stop button not a start button.
      Eating and sleeping is a good day job, where do I get one of those?

      • Ah, but the telephone switch gear only recognised a single digit, being an early form of computer. “10” would have been two digits, interpreted as a “1” followed by a “0”. 😀
        Yeah, I got this kind of information CONSTANTLY growing up. I even have a mini-switchboard of my own! Now if I could just go back in time, and shoot that moron Judge Green…..

  2. Far too long between visits. Some very questions here. Although The Engineer has never called about the remote, he has called about some of the kitchen workings…
