Why?

As you know, very young children ask 'why' all the time..trying to find out about 'stuff'....so here's the premise of this thread.

Ask WHY (about anything that is not adult in nature)? And we'll try to answer.....

Why is it so hard for half of the country to make it..and the others to have overwhelming success?

Why is it impossible to stop loving the wrong man?

Why are there so many mosquitoes???

Hi Sharon, these are just a few of my why's.
Oh yeah, why isn't the book out yet??

Sandra - answers:

1: Capitalism. Gotta have more Indians than chiefs to make the ecomomic system work.
2: I've said it before - women are loyal.
3: Cause insects are prolific...

Why can't I tap the top of my head and rub my tummy in a circular motion at the same time?
I've tried repeatedly (Don't visualize!) and I always end up rubbing my tummy up and down or hitting my head in circles....BUT! I have FINALLY mastered moving my fists in opposite circular directions! ( What can I say? I get bored!)

Why is it so hard for people to believe that you can find love thru the internet?

Why do mens and womens clothing button different?

Paula--I think it's just difficult for some people to believe that you can find true love AT ALL.

And the clothing thing? I believe it has to do with women historically having attendants to help them dress. The buttons were placed on the side most convenient to the "right" hand which would be doing the buttoning.

Paula...I don't have an answer for the first question but I'll try to answer your second...

In the olden days, the ladies would have their servants help them get dressed.  Since garments were traditionally made with buttons on the right and button-holes on the left(like men's garments today) they found that the servants had an easier task of it if they reversed this...so ladies garments were then changed to where the buttons were placed on the left and the button holes were placed on the right.

Did I make that clear???LOL

whoops!  Serenity beat me.*S*

Paula...
Because the people who say that love can't happen on the internet have never before chatted long enough to see how close and personal you can get with someone through the internet.
But Remember! You HAVE to meet before you can be TRUELY sure that you love the person on the net...You have to.

I have a hard time believing in internet love because I believe that it couldn't be love it they haven't even met.  Each person might be falling in love with a particular image the other person is prjecting on the internet.  too many factors

Acire...but isnt that exactly what you do face to face? Project an image? Face to face is no better guarantee of honesty than words on a screen...it IS easier to be more open online...easier to get past a lot of the face to face BS...I agree it takes a face to face meeting to see if the emotions elicited online translate to real time...but the love is no less real for never having met someone...what is love after all but two hearts reaching out to one another...and thank you serenity and Mike I didnt know that at all lol...now where did that maid get to ?

What happened to Mtv? It used to be so cool..I turn it on now and I'm shocked.....and they don't play videos....at leastnot when I turn it on.....it's these really stupid shows.....I WANT MY OLD MTV!!!!!

Why do womens jeans( Levis and Wranglers) waits go so freakin high and men's are just right?

SEA-  maybe I can shed some light on these subjects.  Givers want someone to give to and takers want someone to give to them.  Also opposites attract or at least most of the time.  MTV, well they, not too long ago put out an MTV2 at least in my area that plays only music videos.  As to the jeans question, I thought you knew, they were designed by men.

Ok my question:  Why is it when a female likes a male, in a romantic sense, she sends such mixed signals?

Dopey- actually a great many things could be happening.  You could be emotionally upset, stressed out or even you have heart ache.  Your could also not like something you ate and wants to get rid of it.  There are a number of other answers to it but those are the main ones for me.

Paula- I guess I just don't know how to read those signals or when she tells me I fail to understand.  Give us males a break.  After all we are only male.

Dopey.....I love you and your question.... your tummy hurts cuz you want some ICE CREAM!!

White Wolf~ I agree with Paula here....when I like a man, I make no bones about it...I am not one who enjoys games, it wastes the time I could be spending with the man....

Acire~ I watched last night for like 5 min. and they played a song that was on the last time I turned it on...it was wierd, like that was the only one they have.....

Okay- don't make fun- I'm serious.

Why don't the eggs you buy at the store to eat ever hatch in your fridge? Just once I want to open the fridge and see a baby chick pecking on some milk. =)
