BECAUSE terrorists are holding up its release and they're holding PJ ransom for ten million chocolate chip cookies.

Why won't my parents buy me the boxed three volume set of the HOME series for $450? (150 pounds) It's sooooo cool. I said they could buy it for Christmas and ignore my next birthday and next Christmas and next birthday but they still won't!!! (I think everyone knows the answer to this one)

The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind: Cheap! Chicken Smilie cheap! Chicken Smilie cheap! Chicken Smilie

Though the true answer is they probably have their priorities straight. You will have to wait another 10-15 years until you are financially independent and can be the one to forgo a month's worth of groceries in order to buy the boxed set.

In the meantime, I suggest you give your mother the list of the individual volumes in the order you'd like to receive them and be resolved to receive only a couple at a time over the next few years. Like you could have them all in three years at two each per birthday and Christmas. And besides, a little anticipation is better for us than all the instant gratification we think we need.

What's wrong with my Commodore 64 that it freezes when I now try to copy 5.25 floppies to 3.25 MS-DOS flippies as .d64 files so I can port my music to my PC? And just when I came up with better envelopes for my string's voices which last night I tried out on Pachelbel's Canon in D. Tonight I'll try and see if it will still make .d81 files. You don't suppose it has anything to with the fact that the basic computer is 19 years old do you, even though all the drives (1541II, 1571, HD-200, FD-4000, and a 4 Mb RAMLink) are much newer?
you did what now?

is $450 canadian dollars = to 150 pounds?
Who cares? All I can see is 1 US $ = 45 Rs. That makes me so broke....... *shakes head*

Why do we shake our head?
To say that 'No, I don't agree with this, this is not good.' However there are places where shaking your head means yes while nodding means no, so who knows why you are shaking your head. And then there are hand signals. A good rule when you are out travelling in the world is to do no hand signals at all. Might get messy...

Who, what, when and why?
Me, you, us, them... I wonder!

Why did I like the Silmarillion so much?
Because you read it upside down.

Why did Floyd read the Sil upside down?

Because he wanted to experience it from a different angle. (yes, I know, bad pun! bad pun!)

Where did the game, 7 Card Stud get its name? Why not 7 Slightly Virile?
These two penguins wanted to play cards. They invented there own game because all of the others required fingers. The said penguins did not have fingers. Just stub-wings. The game was played with 7 cards thus, 7 card....................then the penguins added stub after their wings, which they used to play the game with. So, it was originally called 7 card stub. Because of the cold weather in Anarctica, the explorer who brought playing cards to penguins and was the first human to see the game played, couldn't pronounce b's. This means instead of 7 card stub, he called it 7card stud and he never regained his pronunciation skills. When he (Bartholomew McKookooworthy) returned to his home in the Meditterranean Sea, the name of the island is under copyright, he spread the game as being called 7 card stud. Likewise, all the other early patrons of the game spread it as 7 card stud, instead of 7 card stub.It is not called 7 slightly virile because the Captain McKookooworthy (the only person,other than me, who could talk to penguins ever yet discovered)did not bring any dictionaries for him or the penguins to look up virile in.

How do birds sing a song with no words?
One doesn't have to sing words to sing. It can be any form of voice, and hopefully it sounds good, but that not always the case. Haha.

Why did the Boston Celtics name their team Celtics, when Celtics is not even a word, nor is it pronounced like they say it: "Seltics?" (Someone help! This makes no sense to me!)
I suppose because so many Irish live in Boston, and then the Americans had to go and be original and change the true pronunciation.

Why do Americans (of which I am one) have to change the pronunciations of words?
because they probably forget the true way to pronounce them.

Just the way the same materials make a television work!

What if the gravitational force decides to take a day off?
Wow! I'd be able to fly!

Why am I beginning to hate cell phones?
Because they lack simple everyday manners, such as not bothering their owners with intimate and emotional phone calls while walking through their local shopping center. Or they bother their owners by ringing at the most inconvenient times...at the movies, in a meeting, or during church services. Perhaps if the cell phones had more manners, their owners wouldn't look so rude to others!

Would you be able to survive if you found yourself thrown back in time a thousand years?

Why is it so grey, dull, cold and wet outside?

Did you know that a single bubble on the face of the sun is the size of the state of Texas, roughly?
Because we don't live in Australia.

How many handkerchiefs does a kangaroo carry around in its pocket Question Smilie

Why does my toddler insist on poking every button he can get his finger on?
Because there is a magnet in your toddlers finger and the button. Aliens planted planted it there. As they do.

Why do schools not provide inkwells like they used to? THEN I COULD USE MY DIP PEN!!!! WAAAA!!!!!!
Because they outlawed desk inkwells after I used the girl in front of me's pigtail to do Chinese caligraphy.

If you could, would you want to?
If it is something I had wanted to do all the time, I definitely will!

If You come to know that the Earth was about to be destroyed within 1 hour, What would be the first thing you would do?
