Okay, so my topic about the light switches seemed to spark a slew of silly "parking in driveways vs. driving in parkways" type questions. Which Mr. Know-it-all, aka Flea, graciously answered, so I thought that to continue to provide such a needed service, we could put all our silly questions right here in this topic. Flea has graciously agreed to answer all our non-HOL questions that keep us up at night. His only request is that we be patient, answers take time to research. And my only request is that you not argue with the all knowing Flea. He is taking the time to research each and every question, and therefore deserves our respect for his answers.

So, post away!

Oooh!!! ~jumps up and down~ Call on me, Mister Flea! I've got a question.... If you're driving a car at the speed of light, what happens to the headlights if you turn them on?

If I were travelling at the speed of light i wouldn't give a monkey's butt about the headlights.
I'd be worrying about how to slow down before my car hits something and disinagrates into a million pieces...

Okay, Flea, why do those big semi trucks say "This Vehicle Makes Wide Right Turns"? Why can't they make wide left turns sign, too?

QUOTE Why can't they make wide left turns sign, too?[/quote]

They could, it just doens't make any sense /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":lol:" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" />

Anyways, about why they have the right turn signs: If the large truck is in the left lane, turning right, and there's a car up close to the white line in the right lane, then when the truck turns, there is the potential that it could crush the car because it needs that space to turn.

However, when you turn left, there aren't any cars immediately to your left because that would be the traffic going the opposite direction, so there isn't anybody to squish.

The driver is on the left side so can see that side better.

I gots a question. Hehe...

Why do people use the term "falling in love?" People aren't actually falling into love, are they?

I wonder about the weirdest things a lot so you'll probably see more of me here. /biggrin.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":D" border="0" alt="biggrin.gif" />

Oh, Gracious & Wise Flea,

Why does time fly by when you're having fun? Is there anyway to slow it down?

Sincere thanks,

If there was nothing, then nothing would exist. So would nothing be nothing, even tho its something? (If its to complicated, just ignore this!)

oooh! Finally! An all-knowing wiseman who can answer all of life's most puzzling questions!!! I've got oodles. No wonder I can't sleep at night!

~If the pen is mightier than the sword, and a picture is worth a thousand words, how dangerous is a fax?

~Practice makes perfect, but if nobody's perfect, why practice?

~Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?

~Why are there 5 syllables in the word 'monosyllabic'?

~If it's 0 degrees today, and it's going to be twice as cold tomorrow, ...how
cold will it be?

~In court, why do they ask if you swear to tell the truth? If you're planning on lying, do they really think you'll tell them so?

~If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

~If 7-11 is open 24-7 and 365 days a year why do they have locks on their doors?

~If one synchronized swimmer drowns, do the rest have to drown too?

~If masochists like to torture themselves, wouldn't they do it best by not torturing themselves? - And if so, aren't we all masochists?

~Why is it that when we ship something by truck, it's called a shipment but if we send something by ship, it's called cargo?

And there's lots more where those came from!

Flea, why is it that the morning of an important meeting, or date, you wake up with the world's biggest zit on your nose? Or cold sore on your lip?
