I'm always thinking about...... stuff.
People, silly things, goofy ideas, oh yeah important things too. But most days I think about 10 impossible things before breakfast.
But there are some things that I keep shaking my head about. You know things that make you go hmmmmm....
Like did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Whatcha got?? blink.gif

togo,

Dogs have a very sensitive muzzle and a keen sense of smell.

What they don't like is the smell of the breath we blow in their face...
I certainly can't stand talking to someone with a bad breath but enjoy very much the feel of the wind in my face a thousand time better. tongue.gif

What I think mostly in the morning before breakfast is what I'll be doing all day...I plan. And sometimes what ticked me off is that my day is all plan well and I find myself at the end of that "planned" day and realize that I didn't do what I planned to do but did things completely different...hmmmmm!!! unsure.gif

Here's another:
How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Isn't it the normal situation every day? I think I always never had a day that's gone as I planned... biggrin.gif
I affirm, I am a relatively good organized man, but a well planned day that's go by plan - impossible and boring... biggrin.gif

Why do you have to "put your two cents in"... but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?

Why my mother said everytime "Sit down on your four letters!" if she meant "Sit down on your butt!"? The German word for "butt" has five letters - the more gentle version of "butt" has seven! wink.gif

How come at the bank, store or where ever, that the line you get in immediately stops moving and people who came in behind you, and got in another line, get finished long before you do?

Why do we continue to ask "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood" when we know that a woodchuck will never chuck wood?

CarolinaScotsman;

How come when your standing in line at the bank or store and it is finally your turn,
the Teller or cashier closes and goes on break.

The way I learned them they are the same tune.

"Put in your two cents worth. A penny for your thoughts"

Maybe the other penny goes to the tax man.

Ooh, now this is my kind of thread!! smile.gif

Why do you have to click on Start to shut down Windows?

Why are there locks on the 7-11 convenience store doors if they never close?

Nah, those are child's play, lemme throw something on you that will really make you think. I'm the kind of guy that comes up with questions like these, and I actually ponder them at depth. This one is my personal favorite I came up with to ask people that seem to have their wits about them...nobody can seem to agree on what the answer is.

Two people look at a...we'll say a RED rose this time, (I use many examples).
Both of these people will easily agree it is indeed a RED rose, but do they both see the exact same color when they look at it? unsure.gif

Now don't be too quick to assume it is yes. Consider this; it is common knowledge that we are born into this world in complete ignorance. Almost everything we know we are taught by other people; standard "passed down through the generations" stuff. At some point in time someone said "we have to call these different "shades" something, obviously they chose to call them "colors". Following that, some group of people had to debate what they were to be called and came up with red, blue, green, yellow and so forth, (I'm sure it goes much deeper than this with the spectrum of light and such, but lets keep this simple for conversations sake).

That being said, we are born, we learn to talk, we see a RED flower and ask what it is. We are told, "this is a RED flower". And for the rest of our lives we associate what we saw that day, and every similar shade of it to be a variation of the "color" RED. That doesn't necessarily mean everyone saw it the same, we "learned" what to call it. A prime example of this would be someone who is colorblind. They can't see colors, but they can tell you what some colors are, because someone taught them that "this shade of gray/black/white is actually red, or yellow, green, etc.

Am I diving in too deep here? cool.gif I don't think along your normal "tree falls in the forest does it make a noise" type of thinking. Of course the damned thing makes a noise!!! rolleyes.gif

Wait, here's another one...

Why did the chicken cross the road? To prove to the possum it could be done of course! thumbs_up.gif


BTW...my gut says no to the above question. In general I think most of us see a similar color, perhaps even extremely close in match, but not necessarily the same.
I came up with this "hypothetical quandary" in my late teens/early 20's and said no then. I have drawn further evidence to my answer in my growing years as I have developed a mild colorblindness in certain shades of blue/green. This obviously affects many colors I see somewhat, and I will find myself in a stores with my wife debating about the color of a shirt or something of that nature. I still see the color I "learned" and my brain tells me what it is, but now it isn't always right because my eyes don't see it the same anymore. I've found myself having to relearn some colors, which is quite frustrating to say the least.
