I'm incredibly bored, so why not :P

1 is it good if a vacuum cleaner really sucks
Yes. You don't want a dirty house now, do you.

2 why is the third hand on a watch called the second hand
Because it's named after seconds in time. The word 'second' has nothing to do with position

3 if a word was misspelled in a dictionary how would we ever know
Generally that would be highly unlikely. The only time when there will be differences is in another country, e.g. colour and color. In the UK, I highly doubt an edition of the Oxford English Dictionary (MUST be given to every child at birth) would have a spelling mistake.

4 if Webster wrote the first dictionary where did he find the words
A dictionary is simply a collection of words and their means. Just because it was the first dictionary in printed form doesn't mean the words never existed. Webster simply put them all together and created the greatest thing ever.

5 why do tug boats push
Because they do. Tug is simply a name. It's like a town near Rippon (UK) called Studley Roger, but I'm pretty sure that's not what they do there (I'm not joking about this either) :P

6 why is it called after dark when really its after daylight
Because daylight is after dark, so technically it's still after dark, even if it's after daylight.

7 if work is so good why do they pay for you to do it
Because no one would work for free. That and sometimes work is not good. It varies among people.

8 if all the worlds a stage where do the audience sit
All around us. We are both the audience and the stars of the show.

9 if love is blind why is lingerie so popular
Love has many meanings, so it's not necessarily blind. As for wanting to know why lingerie is so popular, you'll find out when you're older ;)

10 why is a bra singular but knickers is plural
It's how it's said. Don't question Mr OED :P

11 why do we press harder on the buttons of a remote control when we know the batteries are failing
It's a sign of annoyance. It something doesn't work, hit it harder. In my case, use a sledgehammer.

12 why do we put suits in garment bags but garments in suitcases
Because the person who invented those words wanted a laugh. That and it would look stupid putting a suit in a suitcase. Imagine how bad it would turn out, then everyone else applying for the interview would laugh at you because of your creased suit. So you see, we do this because it would be stupid not to.

13 Christmas is weird what other time of year do you sit round a dead tree and eat sweets out your socks
Never. We do this at Christmas because it's Christmas. What other better reason do you want? Now shush and eat your candy cane.

Atheism is a non-prophet organization
Dah dun cheeee.

Is the main reason Santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls live
Oh course. What other reason would he ask them to sit on his lap?

If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there are no women around him ....is he still wrong
If it's raining with thunder and lightning, yes.

if someone with multiple personalities threaten to kill himsel, is it classed as a hostage situation
A hostage is a person seized or held in order to induceothers to comply with a demand or condition. You can't seized yourself, hence the answer is no.

is the another word for synonym
Sunonumon. According to Mr OED, it's the Greek for synonym, hence it's another word for synonym... but in a different language ;)

what do you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant
Let the animal eat it. If it's eating the plant, it's gone.

why dont sheep shrink in the rain
Because they don't. That would be stupid. Silly :P

what was the best thing before sliced bread
Fire

why do toasters allways have a setting that burns toast to a crisp that no one would ever eat
It's a way of making you buy more bread. When toast burns, you put more bread in to see if can get it right the next time. Electronic companies and the bakers working together. It works.

why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but they dont point to their crotch when they ask for the toilet
Because if you did that to a woman, pissing your pants will be the least of your troubles.

why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto remains on all fours they are both dogs
Because Goofy is a dog man while Pluto is a dog dog. Also, that question sounds really dodgy. I would rephrase it next time you ask someone.

if Quizzes are Quizzical what are tests
Procedures intended to establish the quality, performance or reliability of something or someone. Mr OED wins again :clap:


Can't be bothered with the rest :P

Just remember, time is money. Time heals all wound, therefore money heals all wounds. Live by that philosophy, grow old and multiply ;-)
