Worth Pondering About Human Nature?
I get a lot of dumb junky e-mail things but the odd time I can relate to some of the content. What follows are some thoughts that just relate to human nature and I'm wondering if you too, have done any of these or have wondered the same thing? We could all probably add some so please do if you think of any!
Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries might be getting weak? This is so true! I do this. Maybe I don't think I've pressed hard enough. Same with the camera batteries. Even though it says empty, somehow I think it might allow just 1 more quick pic!
Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check
when you say the paint is wet? You could see how often people do this if you set up a Candid camera!
Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle it comes in? I actually never wondered that until now. Guess I just know there's some substance in it that prevents this.
Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white? Never wondered this but I can see how someone did, and it would be neat if the bubbles were coloured! Someone who read this is probably trying to figure out a way to produce and market it!
Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance? I pledge guilty! Until I got Centra-Vac, I did this quite a bit!
Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try? I have dexterity problems with my hands so try several times to get these open at the produce section of the grocery store! I even asked someone for help once!
How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures? When I'm lying face up on the chiropractic table, I have wondered this. We have live ones too! My cats sit and watch the ladybugs and flies move around for hours! My husband has to vacuum them out often.
I have this one to add: Why is it that we actually watch a TV screen when it's only the satellite radio? Are we so conditioned to a boob-tube that we can't believe there would be no picture? My husband walks by the room and actually stops to peer in at it! Mind you, we just got the satellite a year ago and haven't used the radio much so this is quite foreign to us!
Mother of Invention, wondering if you can relate to any of these or add to them.
