Imagine you are taking the washer's pulse- dig out the Minnie Mouse watch, and time two loads. Apply for a Federal grant for studying this invaluable method of saving millions of gallons of water a year, publish your findings.
That's what I thought, too, C3. Now I think you are on to something by applying for a grant. You, good man, are the smart one here.

Why is it that I wait days to water my plants and just when I feel the plants can't wait another day for water and I water them, it rains that night?

Rain is pulled down from the sky by water already on the ground. See entry under FLOODING. Thunderstorm, OTOH, are caused by static electric generated by waxing automobiles.

Why does orange juice taste so bad right after one brushes one's teeth?

Lack of vodka in the OJ. Kills the tastebuds, and improves disposition at 6 AM


Why does my Border Collie hate to go out in the rain to potty but if you turn on the hose he likes to snap at the water flow and get soaking wet in the process? And no, he's not afraid of storms so that's not it.

Water from hose can be soaked into fur, permitting said dog to transfer it to unsuspecting owner in one good shake. With rain, owner expects it, takes steps to prevent. No fun.


When my cats want to come in the house they stare in the window of the storm door. When I go to open the door to let them in, the run to the door and stop just short of coming into the house for a minute or so and I have to wait until they decide they are good and ready to come in. Why do they do that?

Because they can. Cats do not have owners, they have staff- they are reinforcing their dominance over you. And it works, does it not?

Stupidity, steel cutting laser, & a dental mirror. What could possibly go wrong?

Scratch- you could add to the list- Surgical laser, highly polished stainless steel instruments, and WHOOPS- sorry about that, Nurse! There are actually surgical injstuments that have a black, nonreflective finish for use with the high energy lasers.

Walk out the door, leaving it open and they will run in behind you; least, that is what one of mine does.

If WallyWorld is open 24/7, then why do they have locks on the doors?
