Say Again?
Quo Vadis

Et tu Brute?
No, I'm not a brute like you!

Why are we conversing in languages other than English?
I don't know, but Grondy started it, so we're probably safe.

Why are we what we are, where we are, and when we are, if we are indeed what, where, when, or anything we are?
Personally, because I've just got home from work and fancied having a look at how things were going at PT.

Why do I get the feeling my wife is about to tell me off?
Bexause that is what wifes are made for.

Why do some people like to confuse others? Even if it gets them hurt?
For some, it is a simple equation... PAIN = PLEASURE.

"Have I told you lately that I love you?" (some song by some artist)
I don't think it will be very healthy for you if you did. Jealous husbands and such. Van Morrison is great!

Why on earth do I have a nasty blister on my toe?
Because... (rambles on about the layers of skin on the toes and applying pressure in certain directions)
How do you skin a cat?
With a razor, and for the extremes, a bucket of acid.

Have you ever tried to eat a bullant?
no...I don't think it's very appetizing.....

what is the last book you have read?
Invertebrate zoology by Robert Barnes

Why can't we get dry as easily as we can get wet?
Because of the conservation of energy: We can get wet by only expending a minimal amount of potential energy by letting gravity drop us into the sea, but to get dry again requires a great expenditure of energy to hoist us out; to sponge us off, and to evaporate the residual wetness.

Is that a piece of spinach between your teeth?
...or are you just happy to see me?

How can something be so bad, yet feel so good?
Because it's human nature to break all rules including the 10 commandments.

If by being raised to a higher elevation something gains potential energy, are a bag of peanuts more fattening when you eat them up a mountain?
Maybe, because there is less oxygen to convert their oils? However, if one walks back down the mountain, one will burn-off the excess fat, faster than they would on level ground or at sea level.

How many frogs does it take to make a baker's dozen of fried frog legs?
6 and one half.

do you like spam with jam?
errmmm, isn't it 3 1/4?
Ar-37: NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! *shudder*
Rhodry- I believe only the back legs are used for eating...

If you had to choose between losing your sight or hearing, which would you choose and why?
Hearing... It's only effective at moderate ranges whereas vision is effective at far greater distances. Vision is more useful in everyday living than hearing.

Why is it than when you mix the primary colours in paint you get brown, whereas when you mix them in light you get white?
Pigments. The pigmentation in the paints make it mix differently than lights.

Why are Tolkien's books so popular? (I know it's easy)
Because I gave him the ideas.

Why ask an easy question?
To give the likes of me a chance to answer something every now and again.

Most clothes serve a purpose of either keeping us warm, dry or protecting our modesty. What is the point of ties?
To show how obsessive humans can be about small things like the tiny amount of prestige a tie gives you. It's a warning to the other animals.

Why give an easy answer?
because my fingers do less work.....

have you ever told lies to your bestfriend?
only little white-lies to protect their feelings, "no dear, that dress with the neon plaid pattern doesn't make you look fat"


Have you ever sneezed under water?
Hmmm...I don't think so. That would be painful.

Have you ever been attacked by a wild animal?
yes - my little brother has finger/toe-nails about a centimetre long.

have you ever decided to go without food for a week?
emh no..... I love food..... Cyclops Smilie


do you have a zen garden in your house?
Well...... I have a pebble fountain, buddha, candles, wind chimes and insence sticks does that count?

Where's the strangest place you've thrown up (not due to illness !!!)
In bed next to my boyfriend...he threw up too (been awhile now...my partying days!)

Where is the strangest place you've ever fell asleep??
I fell asleep backwards with my head at the foot of the bed and my feet on my pillow. i was quite content. Sleeping Smilie

Have you ever had killed a bug with spray paint?

No, usually I let my dog chase after the bugs. It keeps her entertained

Do you know who Sherbert is?
No?!

Have you ever decided to go and poke a fat person (no offence) and say, popinfresh...?
No

Why do we produce cars capable of doing 120+mph when most countries have speed limits which are far lower?
I think it's a man thing, you know power and all that stuff Cool Smilie

Why do dogs & cats smell their .... er ... toilet
Coz it smells good, havent you ever tried?

Who was disgusted by my last comment?
Maybe pushing the bounds of what is normal a bit, but I cannot say I was disgusted by it.

Why is it the most expensive perfumes are not made from nice things like roses etc, but from ambergris from sperm whale stomachs or deer musk?
Well maybe the ingredients are hard to get?(like your examples,they're animals, I mean you have to kill them to produce one)Plus people's demand over the perfume.


What makes an intelligent man intelligent or is there such thing?
Val -- To your question, I would guess it's because humans are attracted to those scents that deal with sexuality even if we try to deny it and cover it up.

Daphne -- I believe true intelligence lies in street smarts rather than book smarts. People can have photographic memories, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at logic, critical thinking and problem-solving.

Today, is a full moon. Do you believe we will act differently because of it?
If I am acting differently, its because my spring break just started.

By the way: For those of you wondering about my previous post in this thread, Sherbert is the bunny I recently adopted.

Do any of you ride horses?
I'm not sure we'll be able to tell the difference, here... "lunatic" behavior is somethng like the norm around here.

How did the chicken cross the road without being run over?

It used the special chicken walk, all the cars stopped in surprise One Eye Smilie

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
No horseback riding since the mid 60's.

Until I was in first grade, I never saw an egg that didn't come from one of our chickens. And I never saw any of our chickens hatch from eggs. I fact I remember when my father brought home a dozen baby chicks from a store and it wasn't even Eastertide.

However, later on as I was growing up I had to gather eggs and keep our free range hens from hiding out trying to brood a batch of eggs in all the hidey spots in and around our barn. So once in a while when I messed up we would get a fresh batch of chicks from some well hidden eggs, so i guess I really don't know the answer and am just rambling.

Why on that particular night, didn't the dog bark at the horse thief?
Because the dog was the horse thief. After all, humans are only the third smartest creatures on the planet. (Yeah, from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Just finished the book, started The Restaurant at the End of the Universe which is the sequel. Can't wait for the movie to come out.)


Who's to say dogs aint the fourth smartest creatures, which would make them perfectly capable of stealing a horse.
I am. Ever seen a dog do something intelligent? There's your answer then.

Why did the turkey cross the road?
The turkey wanted to get to another side of the street Smile Smilie

why do people marry or why do they divorce?
It's all down to LOVE (or lack of) Wink Smilie

How do you know if you're in Lurve (sorry Love)
Every part of you daily routine, including nights out with your mates, suddenly goes to pot as your thoughts are suddenly, irrationally, invaded by images of some wench.

Why is love concidered a good thing when it's such a pain in the elbow?
Because all the young people didn't like their parents' choice when the marriages were arranged. At that time, they'd rather do it themselves; though that often wears a little thin with the passage of time. The real answer is 'Love is blind' and when our sight comes back, we often don't like the wrinkles and warts. And the most painful is when love is one sided.

Where do you keep your passwords?
