I Was Wondering… July 12, 2006

Posted by Andy in andy roth, soapbox.

(from ~1997) 

Sometimes I sit around and wonder about things. Here is a list of things that I wonder about:

  • If Ivory Soap is 99 44/100 % pure, what is the .56%?
  • Who was it that first realized that water goes down the drain the other way in the Southern Hemisphere, and why do we all know that it does?
  • Do scarecrows actually work?
  • If someone is “taking time” where are they taking it and how do they carry it?
  • If printers only wrote in cursive would they still be called printers?
  • Why doesn’t Spider-Man stick to his clothing?
  • What is it about dogs and fire hydrants anyway?
  • How sure are they when they put weight limits on bridges?
  • Have we developed all the punctuation marks we need or will somebody someday invent more?
  • How long before they can digitize smell?
  • How long before they do away with pennies, and when they do will people say “Nickel for your thoughts” ?
  • How do you clean soap?
  • How do you throw away a trash can?
