    Default Questions you need the answer to.

    Why does the laundry always end up on the floor next to the laundry basket, rather than in the laundry basket?

    Why do I always find the roommates who are perfectly happy to have a bathroom reeking of mildew forever and all time?

    What do I have to do to get the hell out of California?

    I'll give you a non-Erma one: Why, when you e-mail an important, time-sensitive document to someone, would they not just shoot you back a quick e-mail, letting you know it's been received?

    And, further, why do I feel like an ass then when I send the followup e-mail "Did you happen to get my earlier e-mail? That document is like super important and stuff, and I need to be sure you got it."

    How can it go from winter-coat weather to shorts-and-tank top weather in the span of ONE DAY?!

    Why do people whose knowledge of a subject comes from a casual reading of popular literature think that they can go among experts, raise incredibly obvious points, and assume that the experts have never thought of them before?

    When did butter chicken conquer this country? Not only does every Indian restaurant offer butter chicken, and about the half the British style pubs, I now know places that offer butter chicken burritos and butter chicken poutine.

    Oh, he's cute, for sure. But all day long..."mommy, pretend I'm a puppy!" "Mommy, pretend you just got me in the mail!" "Mommy, pretend you don't know which house is ours!" "Mommy, pretend we're on a pirate ship!" "Mommy, pretend we're taking an airplane to Grandma's!" It never. ends.

    My kid wants to go to the ball game on Saturday, but that's when the Rapture's scheduled. Has Jose Bautista been saved? Cause it's kind of a shame to spring for Jays' tickets if he's not going to be playing.

    Why is it that whenever I eat an apple, I invariably get a piece stuck between my teeth and then I have to go floss?
    I don't think so, therefore I'm probably not.

    Cause I'm stupid?

    Seriously, I know I should remember to do that, but it's just nice to get a verbal confirmation, yes we got it, we understand it, no questions, etc.

    Good to see you, BTW.

    I have the same question, Hat.

    ALso, why do I spend so much time on the internet, when I know it's generally unedifying, and mainly serves to annoy me?

    Why did it take me until now to realize the reason my thread title has been bugging me all this time is because "questions" is plural and "answer" is singular?

    Heh. It's a baseball term. It refers to a highly specialized pitcher who's brought in late in the game, when his team holds a narrow lead, to shut down the other team's batters and secure the win ("close the game", hence, "closer").

    In the case of the Toronto Blue Jays, it refers to a pitcher who's brought in late in the game, when his team holds a narrow lead, to hand a come-from-behind victory over to the other team (lose the game, hence "loser").

    I think you have the team confused with the Houston Astros....

    Butter chicken is kind of like a cousin to chicken tikka. It is a yummy, mild Indian dish that I think would make a smashing burrito filling, personally.

    I think it's a nostalgia thing for me: if I read Shannara books while listening to Smashing Pumpkins I can perfectly recapture the zeitgeist of my teen years.

    Why do I like those new Heineken commercials even though they're a transparently obvious ripoff of The Most Interesting Man in the World?

    The ones who attack those figures are the authoritarian science crackpots. Instead of grasping how science really works, they view it more as a kind of prophetic religion. Attack the prophet, attack the science.
