I should note that, although there probably are answers to many of them, I don't have them.
And, at the same time, I'm not sure I want a "real" answer to any of them, either. I mean, does anyone really want to know how the rabbit comes out of the empty hat? Isn't it more wondrous just knowing that he does?
And, yet, on the other hand, if you do have any insight into any of the following situations, please feel free to let me know.
1) Why, if the local news starts at 11am, would they refer to it as the "midday news" or--worse yet--the "noon news at 11"?
2) If the sun is warm enough to melt the snow on the roof and cause it to drip and/or form icicles, why isn't it also warm enough to melt the snow and ice off of the driveway?
3) (Related to 2) How is it that soft, slushy, snow can become so hard-packed around your tires that it doesn't fall off when you drive? Shouldn't all of the salt and ice-melt stuff that has softened it in the first place cause it to degrade and fall out?
4) Why is it that, although I've taken the trouble to clear the entire front walkway, the postman insists on walking through the yard? Should I shovel multiple paths just for him?
5) Do all Blu-Ray disc players also play "regular" DVDs? And what, exactly, makes them different, anyway? (For someone with such a small amount of technical savvy, I'm amazed that I can blog...)
6) Why are TV show runs listed as "seasons" here in the States, but as "series" in Britain? (It can make DVD (Blu-Ray or otherwise) shopping a tad confusing...)
7) How much sunlight do you have to get to equate to 1,000 I.U. of Vitamin D3? Why do I suspect that there would be skin cancer--or freezer burn--involved if you waited around outside long enough to absorb it? And, it that's the case, are we sure it's good for us?
8) Why hasn't John Barrowman come up as a topic in any of my blog posts, lately?
Like I said. Strange things have been bouncing around in my head, lately. (And we won't even get into the weird dreams I've been having...)
