Why do pointe shoes have to be SO painful?

Because if God had wanted us to wear pointed shoes she would have made our feet pointed; instead, wanting us to maintain our balance when we walk, she made the widest part of our feet near our toes. And not wanting us to be slothful she gave us more than three toes on each foot which precludes the comfortable wearing of pointed shoes, unless we wear longer shoes that allow for the width of our feet; of course then the points can be turned up with a tassel or a bell hanging from them and our feet could be comfortable.

Why do plants reach for the sky, yet rain falls down?

Because it was i who invented that.

Where does the word titicaca come from?
From the high Andes, where there is a lake by that name which only one old native remebers its meaning, though some think it should be called "Lake Kittycaca" because the ancient space aliens, who drew all that Peruvian stone art that can only be viewed in full from the air (simiarly to that on the plains in England), said it looked like a large feline chasing a bunny-wabbit. After being eaten by the cat, all that would remain of that rabbit would be kittycaca. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

I remember having read about the original rhyme which was started with "father and i went down to camp" and a captain Goodwin was mentioned. It was pretty funny
I'd find him on my $5 bill and also on my one cent piece.

Here is a link to the tune and written lyrics of Yankee Doodle.

Did Peter Piper eat any of those pickled peppers from that peck he picked?
No, he traded them to the Pied Piper for some pies. Elf Winking Smilie

Speaking of pies... since pies have a crust, and the Earth has a crust, does that mean the Earth is filled with cherry filling? (Yum! Someone pass the ice cream!!!)
No, it is filled with chocolate and chunky peanut butter or was that chocolate and Cr’me de Menthe?

Where would you go to find out how to thread the twine on a McCormick Reaper/Binder?

I ran one of those for one day each Summer during my High School and Uni years. I had ten acres of registerd Whitmar Beardless Wheatgrass that we bound and shocked usually on the Fourth of July. A week later we threshed it through a John Deare Model 55 self-propelled combine that we used as a semi-stationary threshing machine. We had: vacuumed its interior clean, removed its cutting bar, and opened wide the concave gap. The seed we bagged in gunny sacks and I used a big needle and chord to sew closed the bag tops. I hauled the bags of seed about 90 miles on a 1949 KB6 International truck to a seed facility where it was sold. That and a small scholarship paid for my Uni years.
I'd go directly to Mr. McCormick Reaper-Binder, who, being a very busy man, would promptly tell me to figure it out for myself and please leave him to his business!

Do you want to fly?
Not without my own wings.
I'd go directly to Mr. McCormick Reaper-Binder,

Sorry, but Mr. McCormick passed away in 1884. I found a picture of the contraption: McCormick Grain Binder Illustration, we used a small Farmall wheel tractor in lieu of horses to pull it.

How far can you or have you swam underwater without an underwater breathing apparatus?
The entire length of an in-ground pool at my grandparents' apartment building (say about 40 feet). But that was when I was a teenager and obviously in much better shape.

What would happen if you found a four-leaf-clover under a ladder?
I'd pick it up to press and save but being clumsy I'd knock the ladder down in the process. I'm not superstitious but like 4 leaf clovers because they are rare.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?
Finally seeing a dentist last year after several years of ignoring some really bad problems. I was terrified but it turned out to be one of the best things I've ever done. It's only one year later (and about two dozen visits) and I can't believe what an awesome difference.

If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
Actually, I really like my name. I didn't when I was a kid, but I think that is pretty normal. If I was to change my name, it would be to something more original.My real name seems to be very popular lately.

Why do people say "Bless You" after a sneeze?
