    In answering some of these questions that have been bugging Me.


    If you dug a hole through the center of the earth,and jumped in, would you stay at the center because of gravity?

    How far east can you go before you're heading west?

    Is it rude for a deaf person to talk (sign) with their mouth full of food?

    Is there a time limit on fortune cookie predictions?

    Why is vanilla ice cream white when vanilla extract is brown?

    How can something be "new" and "improved"? if it's new, what was it improving on?

    If money doesn't grow on trees then why do banks have branches?

    Do siamese twins pay for one ticket or two tickets when they go to movies and concerts?

    If a nursing mother had her nipples pierced would the milk come out of all three holes?

    Why is it called a funny bone, when if you hit it, it's not funny at all?

    Do Chinese people get English sayings tattooed on their bodies?

    How come lemon washing up liquid contains real lemons, but lemon juice contains artificial flavorings.

    What would happen to the sea's water level if every boat in the World was taken out of the water at the same time?

    you would fall, then hit center, continue falling but slow down, then fall back to center, and oscilate until you settled in the center.

    Some people think gravity is caused by the earth's rotation, but the earth's rotation is caused by the various forces of gravity that have acted upon it throughout the billions of years of its existence.

    How far east can you go before you're heading west?
    since it is a circle that keeps moving i would say you would never go far enough since east and west run in the same form in a loop then you would have to go againt the direction you are going to change from east to west

    Is it rude for a deaf person to talk (sign) with their mouth full of food?
    no dont be cruel!! lol

    Is there a time limit on fortune cookie predictions?
    no otherwise they would state a date on them wouldnt they.

    Why is vanilla ice cream white when vanilla extract is brown?
    when you are working with an extract, you use a small quantity. The ratio of vanilla extract to cream is not close enough to turn the product brown.

    How can something be "new" and "improved"? if it's new, what was it improving on?
    depends what it is

    If money doesn't grow on trees then why do banks have branches?
    stupid question!! and i dont know!

    Do siamese twins pay for one ticket or two tickets when they go to movies and concerts?
    depends where they are joined and what they are buying a ticket for! if they are needing seats and are joined at the head, then two tickets!

    If a nursing mother had her nipples pierced would the milk come out of all three holes?
    from experience i can say yes!!

    Why is it called a funny bone, when if you hit it, it's not funny at all?
    The etymology of the phrase "funny bone" isn't that clear, but some people claim it may be a pun on the name of the bone in the upper arm, which is called the humerus. When you knock your "funny bone", you crush the ulnar nerve against the humerus, and since humerus sounds a lot like "humour", there's the link with "funny".

    Do Chinese people get English sayings tattooed on their bodies?
    no idea!!

    How come lemon washing up liquid contains real lemons, but lemon juice contains artificial flavorings.
    does it matter? you dont drink washing up liquid do you?

    What would happen to the sea's water level if every boat in the World was taken out of the water at the same time?
    nothing visible. boats don't displace much water compared to how big the ocean actually is.

    Very true indeed. There's a lot of folks who seem to be unable to see outside of the box which is a shame, because the last box they'll ever be in won't have any windows at all! ;)
