Some Random Thoughts

Why do we still find ourselves saying 'videotape' instead of record or DVR?

How is space endless? And how do the planets just float in space?

What is the point of a fly that only lives for one day?

How come it is NYPD and FDNY? Why not NYFD?

How do we get glass from sand? And how it a solid object see through?

Why do The Home Depot and Kohl's have like 50 handicapped parking spaces?

Does a person with only one foot have to buy both shoes?

How do you really know when sour cream goes bad?

If I have sex with my clone does that make me gay?

Why is the word abbreviation so long?

Holy cow, I am totally messing up your comments, and here you thought you were so popular. Sigh. Sorry. Anyway, my point is this: If you have sex with your clone, I don't know if that means you're gay. I do know (from personal experience) that it means you're desperate.

same reason we still know what a floppy disk is.

I say DVR now.
Saturn floats because it has a life ring.
Yes, you're desperate, gay, and a narcissist. Why, have you been messing with my clone machine again?

Do you really want answers to these questions? Because I'm that annoying person who has them...

Some things get embedded in the language. Why do we still say "hang up" the phone? Old habits die hard.

Astronomers don't know what's beyond beyond, so who's to say that space is endless? They're not sure. And as for planets, they're not really "floating". They're embedded in the fabric of space-time, held in their orbits by gravity. And everything is flying away from each other at great clips of speed.

I'll skip the next couple, because they are unknowable.

As for glass, that's a change (and I can't remember terminology, something about physical or chemical... Anyway...) that makes the molecules line up in a crystalline structure. It's similar to how ice is bigger than the volume of water it comes from.

And I'll get off of my podium now. (This is why I don't ask random questions. Every time I wonder something, the answer finds me. Like, how do they figure out when Easter is? Yes, I know.)

Is your clone have the same sex with you?
I mean if you a man, Will your clone man too?

I use my brain DVR all the time. I never had a brain video recorder. Hmmm.

George Carlin was a genius, wasn't he, but he never thought of all these pictures. I find myself referring to buildings as the business that was in there 30 years ago, i.e. "the Burts building" even if Burts went out of business in 1995, which they did. Why are we humans like that? The clone question has landed me in a loop I'll never get out. Thank you for visiting my A to Z blog. Alana

I can barely spell abbreviation.

Interesting questions--some of which I've also thought about. I get annoyed when I go to our nearby Target and have to drive around trying to find a place to park while there are at least 20 empty handicapped spaces.
