Why do cats purr?
Tell me, where is the nearest Pub?
What if the Moon shone of its own accord?
Tell me again why I can't go out tonight?
Why is there always a power cut just after you set the clock on your VCR?
Why do clocks always run faster when you are running behind?
Was music invented or discovered?
Did you know the first Rock Band was founded in 1842 by Joseph Richardson, a mason from Keswick, England?
Why is split personality a disease?
How close to the top of a tree can one climb?
Have you ever seen a sting ray in the wild?
Why are weeds considered to be bad?
Why do two or more people see different things in the same cloud formation?
Why does a crow crows while a cat meaows?
If you question was hitting at the fact that the crow is a kind of onomatopoeia. Then the answer would include that word "crow" has a long vowel sound, while the word "cat" has a very sort vowel sound. The only animal sound that I can think of that doesn't have the rule of the long vowel sound is the ribbit.
Perhaps we should rename cats to be meows. And frogs to be ribbits...but then people would get them confused with rabbits. So rabbits would have to be renamed....
But what sound do rabbits make?
How did cockroaches survive the atomic bomb?
Why is it when I ask them to come here and do that, they go someplace else and do something other?
Why don't things go to plan?
Would the world be a happier place if every postman wore a clown outfit???

You've got to give a little, take a little,

Why did the leaders of the Gloucester Cathedral give permission to film Harry Potter (the dude who practices witchcraft and wizardry) inside the Cathedral???
Why are male goats referred to as billy-goats? Why not call them charles-goats, or fred, or maybe even maxwells?
Now tell me, did you like my story or should I have stood in bed?
Where did the term 'Balderdash and Piffle' come from???
Piffle is a word that was secretly added to Webster's dictionary for the sole purpose of using it in a certain boardgame which was running out of real words. It therefore, doesn't have a real meaning.
Grondy, I loved your story, if it's any consolation. "BILLY-HELL!"
We need a goat icon...
Why is there a tooth mouse and a tooth fairy - surely there should only be one; and which one came first?
Why dosent Harry Potter just take out a gun and shoot Voldemort, that would definately take care of the problem?
Besides that, Snape will do that deed: After protecting Draco's life as he promised to Mrs. M.; Snape will do in the Dark Lord slipping him a particularly putrid poisoned potion in recompense for causing Snape to violate Dumbledore's trust; thus saving Harry's life for the final time. However, in remorse for doing in his old boss Dumbledy-Door, Snape will then take a pull at his potent poison potion and join his nemisises James and Sirius, who will then be in Snape's debt, so he believes, for saving Harry from spending the rest of his life in prison for murder. Ron will marry Hermoine; Harry will marry Ginny; Hagrid will marry Madame Maxime; the reformed Droco will marry Lovely Luna; and the final chapter of the final book will end with Mom and Pop Weasley inheriting the Earth.
So how do you think book seven will end?
"next knows Tenaciuos D? "
Yup, sure have! Jack Black....
Rude, crude, but pretty funny stuff!
I had entered Thread.... Thought I'd already gone to the last page... Turns out I hadn't! I was 'replying' to the last post on first page
Apologies. Ignore & continue from last....
Book 7 will end...
Harry will awake, from the dream that it all was, to find that he is a typical spotty teenager - having a marvelous imagination & decides to write the books! (Sorry, crap - but you put me on the spot... Anyone else have a more imaginative idea?)
The seventh will start with an advance in years when HP has become Hogwarts headmaster and then go back to the build up to it, the blonde dude (cant remember his name) will side with the evil wizard man who keeps trying to kill HP and his crazy friends and they will try to kill them once again, but because the blonde dude and the evil wizard man have teamed up and HP and his crazy friends cant defeat them, then suddenly........ HP's parents rush to the scene and they are not dead, they are alive, you see it was all a cover up they dissapeared as the evil wizard dude used the wrong spell to kill them and it sent them to a virtual world and they have been fighting for what seemed like lifetimes to get free of this virtual world, and they kill the blonde dude and the evil wizard man and live happily ever after, oh and HP saves the girls life (the girl hes always with) and they get married and she becomes a powerful witch lady and they have lotsa Harry Potter kids with scars on thier head and all their names ryhme with Harry eg. Barry, Gary, Larry..........
Did you laugh at my story???
i think i heard the ending some where. harry loses his scar. just to say i'm a huge fan of Hp. (the books any way) i still can't beleive she killed dumbledore. i swear i went into depression. i still dunt think snape is evil. dumbledore always said that death was just the beginning of a journey, why then would he plead for his life? what if he was pleading for snape to kill him? in the middle of the book, he and snape had got into a fight, snape was saying he didn't want to do it any more. what was it? working with the dark lord perhaps?
we'll see we'll see....
you need to post a question..........
what would you do if somebody you thought to be dead suddenly came back in your life?
A raft, a paddle and a fancy new sun hat!
Seeing as I cheated, just a little... & it would be interesting to know - same question as above but, more specifically - choices not to include ANY type of person-sized vessel or swimming aid !
*Winks @ Νinerl
However, in this modern day and age a satellite radio-telephone, a global positioning device, and fresh batteries for both.
Can you stand on your hands without crouching?
can you look at a random object and make a whole story out of it?
Tubby: Please add [ /b] to the end of your bold highlighted text. When you forget; I have to edit your posts to do it for you. Thanks
Why do most politicians make life harder for the little people instead of representing them? Is it just the 'Golden Rule': "Them that has the gold, makes the rules".
Is a dream just a twisted form of reality?
Grondy...you know if you are the one to post right after someone who forgets to close a tag; you can do it for them; just at the beginning of your post, the first thing you can put would be [ /B ]. That might be easier than editing his post, but if you are looking for more work to do there is about 20 unclosed quote tags that need closing in the Quote Game Thread. Here is one. There is actually one inside another here. I guess 20 is an exaggeration; I only found 3. I think unclosed quote tags are the most distracting. Should I demonstrate?
Who thought up HTML?
No, you needen't bother.
Grondy was here.
Tim Berners-Lee probably invented the World Wide Web and HTML.
What is randomness anyway?
1. Having no specific pattern, purpose, or objective: random movements.
2. Mathematics & Statistics: Of or relating to a type of circumstance or event that is described by a probability distribution.
3. Of or relating to an event in which all outcomes are equally likely, as in the testing of a blood sample for the presence of a substance.
Despite the negative connotations jargon uses of this term have, it is worth noting that randomness can actually be a valuable resource, very useful for applications in cryptography and elsewhere. Computers are so thoroughly deterministic that they have a hard time generating
n 1: (thermodynamics) a thermodynamic quantity representing the
amount of energy in a system that is no longer available
for doing mechanical work; "entropy increases as matter
and energy in the universe degrade to an ultimate state
of inert uniformity" [syn: entropy, S]
2: the quality of lacking any predictable order or plan
Apparently... Randomness has an important place in science and philosophy
Well... There are the definitions but in my own opinion I believe that 'randomness' is what makes us Human!
What computer or other device do you know of that can close its eyes, wave its finger about in an amusing fashion, then say... "THAT ONE!!"
What, in your opinion (apart from thumbs) seperates us from monkeys?
Now then: What, in your opinion (apart from thumbs) separates us from chimpanzees
Okay, so it wasn't very random, but I did add a twist.
what do u like best about lotr?
Mostly, I think I love how it makes you feel like you're a part of the story, a part of middle earth (I can picture myself being there) - and just about anyone can relate to it in some way (If they give it a chance).
Which character in lotr do you relate to best and why?
Why do you think that most people are obsessed with the unknown???
