Monday Meanderings

imageWhy does decaf coffee have such a bitter taste to it?

Why do cut weeds stinks so much?

How come fingernails twist so much when they get long?

Why does gray hair grow in curlier than normal hair?

And why is it called “grizzled”? 

What’s a grizzle?

Why are FreeCell and Spider Solitaire so addicting?

Does it hurt chickens to lay eggs?

What’s the average IQ of Hollywood?  (The actors, directors, and screenwriter types)

Is there a different IQ for the left and right halves of the brain?

I wonder why my daughter asks so many questions?

  1. That image is hilarious. As for your questions, I don’t know, but I think your last one kinda answers itself! 😀

    Thanks Izaak, I’m glad you liked it. 🙂

    1. Regular and decaf taste the same. It’s the caffeine that makes the brain ignore the bad taste of regular and allow the body to consume more of it.

    Oh no, decaf definitely has a bitter edge, you tea drinker you.

    2. The odour is caused by both the rotting of the vegetation and the breaking of plant cell walls letting out the odour of the rotting inside.

    But weeds are way more stinky than say, grass. Cut grass is kind of nice, cut weeds are noxious. Blech.

    3. Fingernails cannot sustain there own weight.

    That explains the curve down, but the twist?

    4. Even normal hairs will grow in curly at times, but those go unnoticed.

    But why do gray hairs come in like that all the time, not just some of the time?

    5. It’s a reference to Grizzly Adams.


    6. No such word.

    If there’s no such word, then how can there be a past tense of that word?

    7. Because they can be won, but not every time.

    I once had a 283 FreeCell winning streak on my old old old computer. 🙂

    8. Chickens can lay eggs on a daily basis, there muscles in that part of the body are used the expansion required. Imagine a human woman giving birth daily for a year. That 365th kid would just slide out.

    ROFL I don’t think Mrs Duggar feels that way and she’s had 19!

    9. The average IQ of Hollywood is higher than in any other part of America. They’ve got the entire nation purchasing their products regardless of the quality of those products.

    I think that says more about the IQ of the rest of the country.

    10. A proper IQ test will require both parts of the brain working together to correctly answer the questions.

    Yes, but is it possible to test each side independently? And would there be a difference in scores if you could?

    11. You daughter asks questions because she doesn’t know the answer to them. If she’s asking you the question, it’s because she thinks you know the answer. The moment she stops asking you questions is the day she thinks she is smarter than you.

    Truer words were never spoken.


  3. mumble, mumble, mumble – dunno – these questions are noble attempts at arriving at a knowledge of the universe and I am not equipped for that. 😀

    Knowledge of the universe? LOL Not sure about that! 😀 And I’m pretty sure there’s nothing noble in my silliness, but thank you for saying so. 🙂


  4. Haha…that was cute.

    Glad you liked it. 🙂


  5. My father was a severe FreeCell addict, so much so that he had to go cold turkey and remove it from all of his PC’s.

    That is a pretty severe addiction!

    Hey Nessa! Just stopping by to see how you’re doing.

    I’m hanging in there Steve. *hugs* 🙂


  7. I have a grey patch right in the center of my forehead that started when my daughter was in her 3rd accident in 3 years. Since I have curly hair, my grey hair comes in straight. Each hair is about an inch in diameter and sticks straight up. It’s annoying.

    Yours comes in straight? That is so weird! Maybe it just comes in opposite to the standard hair?
