13 Things About Dane Bramage
13 Things to Ponder


Nothing too deep this week. Just 13 things that makes you wonder some times.

  1. If crime doesn't pay, does that mean my job is a crime?

  2. Why do fingers and toes wrinkle in the bath, but not the rest of our body?

  3. Does the Little Mermaid wear an algebra?

  4. If rhino horn is an aphrodisiac, how come rhinos are nearly extinct?

  5. Is Disney World a people trap operated by a mouse?

  6. How come the dove gets to be the peace symbol? How about the pillow? It has more feathers than the dove, and it doesn't have that dangerous beak.

  7. Why can't I find any illegal-sized paper?

  8. Why are people overwhelmed but never just whelmed?

  9. When your cat has fallen asleep on your lap and looks utterly content and adorable, why do you suddenly have to go to the bathroom?

  10. Why does McDonalds call it a drive thru when you have to drive around the building?

  11. Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?

  12. If beauty is only skin deep, how can some people be described as having an inner beauty?

  13. If a train station is where a train stops and a bus station is where a bus stops, what's a workstation?

I don't know, I think I felt just "whelmed" today.
There are alot of workstations where the work stops, or never gets started.
Have a great T13

Just Say These Words

Now I am going to wonder about 11 and I do not get Algebra and I hate that i can't think of it:>

These are really funny things to ponder about but come to think of it they're true. We sometimes have questions left unanswered.

Interesting questions. Isn't the top of your foot called your instep?

Zenmomma said...

And why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Skittles said...

Thanks for the early morning laughs! :)

Still rolling on the floor...

Dane Bramage said...

Nicholas the instep is the curved part of the foot between the toes and heel where the arch is.

Darla said...

Well, if legal-sized paper is 8.5 x 14 inches, doesn't that mean that all other sizes of paper are illegal?

UFCfans said...

GREAT list!!! I love it. This is my very first week participating in the TT threads if you care to pay mine a visit! :) Jennifer

Sparky Duck said...

All fantastic questions, though I have not had enough caffeine to answer any of them

Pop Tart said...

#7 made me laugh -- really! (Must ask my sister who is a lawyer about that one.)


TT's posted here and here.

Open Grove Claudia said...

This is so fun... I laughed a couple times at your questions. As usual, your perspective is spot on!

Happy TT!

Eve said...

This is a great list. I wonder about this kind of stuff sometimes, too. My family always rolled their eyes and turned away if I asked about any of it out loud.

Stop by my TT and you can get a chuckle out of how my hair looked in the 80's...and 70's...and even 60's.

Julia said...

The scary thing is, I have considered some of these before...

#8 is a very good question. It's like, once you're happy, do you go from "disgruntled" back to "gruntled?" (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Sue said...
