This idea is not new, but I thought of it when I was looking at Jab's new stuff on sale - word art about sisters and brothers and all the things they say to each other.

So it's the age old question Why? .. I'll ask a "why" question and you answer how it applies to you then you ask a "why" question. Make sense? I'll go first.

Why do two-year-olds have temper tantrums?

06-06-2009, 07:02 PM
Because they have recently figured out that they are truely independent beings, but they lack the know how to manage their emotions and communicate their wants in socially appropriate ways. In knowing that we are separate, they also enter into the world of attempting to control through behavior.

Why do husbands only hear half of what we actually say to them?

06-06-2009, 11:41 PM
Ever heard of *speed~reading*? well.. Husbands have mastered *speed~listening*... where in you only listen to every other word.. or possibly even just the last word... The key to *speed~listening* is to tune out when the wife says... *honey?.....* LOL..

Why is that two socks go into the dryer and only one comes out?

Where does bad luck come from?

06-08-2009, 02:05 PM
Comes from not having a rabbits foot in your pocket, a horseshoe upside down on your barn door, a found penny in your possession, a mirror that isn't broken, a ladder you've not walked under, a cat that's not black crossing your path, sidewalks with no cracks............ lol

Why do women like diamonds?

Same reason we send parcels overland as *shipments* and send *cargo* via sea vessels LOL.

Why did you start scrapbooking?

Well if u live here in the US it's because 75% of the time there is no rhyme or reason to most of the things we do :) Good question though!

Why do 'pageant mom's' make their poor little girls dress up like hoochie mamas and parade around on stage

(sorry - my daughter is watching some show about "Little Miss Perfect Pageant" on We tv - and no offense intended toward any pageant moms on this site, as I'm sure people who are smart enough to be a part of GDS would have common sense about dressing their daughters and make-up and such)

06-10-2009, 01:55 PM
I am certain it is because the Moms are trying to live vicariously thru their daughters. It has always been my thought that these mom's were pageant losers when they were kids! LOL!

Where does the saying, "When it rains, it pours...." come from?

06-11-2009, 03:21 PM
Well.. apparently that is the marketing slogan for Morton's Salt. The little girl on the salt shaker has a huge umbrella .. quiet cute..

Why is it that most *fitness freaks* wear spandex around town and have their hair in a pony tail on top of their heads.. usually in curls? LOL

06-11-2009, 05:49 PM
Because in order to be a true "fitness freak" you have to see the world as a gym -- thus the spandex. The curls are the result of a time-warp continum glich involving "fitness freaks".

06-12-2009, 02:54 PM
Ohhh, same reason why it rains after you wash your car. I haven't hung laundry out in 35 years--we have rules against it in most condo and neighborhood associations in California. So much for our "green" efforts.

Why can't a man be more like a woman (to paraphrase)?

06-12-2009, 05:29 PM
Well, I am certain it's because if men were more like women, no one would ever be wrong....and therefore life would be boring!

Why is the sky blue? (This is a classic question that, at least for me, no one has ever explained...)

06-12-2009, 07:55 PM
The sky is blue because of refraction (think rainbows only it's always blue). Also, blue is a nice calming color and thus we have a built in stress reliever over our heads.

Why do tired children run and seem to get more energy and tired adults slump and get less?

06-12-2009, 08:22 PM
When a person exercises we release endopherines which make us feel good. The more we feel good the more energy we seem to have. Adults that just laze around will not feel good so they don't want to go do stuff.. vicious circle..

The sun's rays hit the Earth's atmosphere, where the light is scattered by nitrogen and oxygen molecules in the air. The blue wavelength of this light is affected more than the red and green wavelengths, causing the surrounding air to appear blue. At sunset, the sun's light passes farther through the atmosphere, deflecting and decreasing the blue in the air. Scattering by dust particles and pollution in the air causes the sunset to appear red.

WHY oh WHY do we dread it when the in~laws come to visit???? ..... /me runs to hide
