Five great confusions still unresolved.
1. At a movie theatre, which arm rest is yours?
2. In the word scent, is *S* silent or *C.*
3. If people evolve from monkeys, why are monkeys still around?
4. Why is there a *D* in fridge, but not in refrigerator?
5. Who knew what time it was when the first clock was made?

I went to the liqour store Friday afternoon on my bicycle, bought a bottle of Scotch and but it in the bicycle basket. I was about to leave, then I thought to myself that if I fell off the bike, the bottle would break. So I drank all the Scotch before I cycled home, just in case. That turned out to be a very good decision because I fell off my bicycle seven times on the way home.

Stuff I wonder about (Part 2):

* If you*re attacked by the Energizer Bunny, is he charged with battery?

* What if you stop to think and forget to start again?

* Why do we put suits in a garment bag, and garments in a suitcase?

*Why doesn*t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

* Who was Allen, and why did he have so many wrenches?

* Where exactly is the middle of nowhere?

* Where does your lap go when you stand up?

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sale girl sees him and asks if she can help. He says that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later he brings a huge bag of cotton balls and a roll of string to the counter. The girl says *Sir, I thought you were looking for abox tampons for your wife.* He answered, *You see, it*s like this. Yesterday I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes. She returns some time later with a tin of tobacco and rolling papers because it is sooooo much cheaper. So I figure if I have to roll my own, so does she.*

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The sale girl sees him and asks if she can help. He says that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later he brings a huge bag of cotton balls and a roll of string to the counter. The girl says *Sir, I thought you were looking for abox tampons for your wife.* He answered, *You see, it*s like this. Yesterday I sent my wife to the store to get me a carton of cigarettes. She returns some time later with a tin of tobacco and rolling papers because it is sooooo much cheaper. So I figure if I have to roll my own, so does she.*
