Food For Thought

It's a little slow out here so I thought I would post a little
food for thought:


Is it a good thing if a vacuum cleaner really sucks?

Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

Why does "slow down" and "slow up" mean the same thing?

Why does "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean the same thing?

Why do "tug" boats push their barges?

Why do we sing "Take me out to the ball game" when we are already there?

Why is it called "after dark" when it really is "after light"?

Why do "overlook" and "oversee" mean opposite things?

Why is "phonics" not spelled the way it sounds?

Why do we press harder on the buttons of a remote control
when we know the batteries are dead?

Why do we put suits in garment bags and garments in a suitcase?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

Why is it called a TV Set when there is only one?

Christmas - What other day of the year do you sit in front of a dead tree and eat candy out of your socks?

Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway ?

I know that! It's because it's wet in the bottle. If you take that wet away it will git real hard, and soon. Sort of like...........

..for the same reason that duct tape doesn't stick to itself. No, wait.....

Ah, I have it.... glue only sticks to "outsides."

I am guessing its because glue needs air to set up and stick. If you leave the cap off a bottle of glue it will most certainly harden and stick to the inside of the container. But this thread was supposed to entertain and this is getting way too scientific.

Aw shucks! Glue contains either water (white glue) or a solvent (other than white glue). When exposed the water or solvent evaporates letting the glue "dry" and adhere to whatever you put it on. In the bottle, the air chamber between the glue and the cap is small so there is not enough evaporation that would cause the glue to dry. In super glue, there is a different substance that inter-reacts with water vapor in the air. It is very difficult to keep this water vapor out of a tube of super glue and therefore it hardens inside the tube.

The above is based on the WAG principle, with some SWAG.

Charlie..........duct tape DOES TOO stick to itself! I know...I tried and it does!!!

As for glue not stickin' to the inside of the bottle, I do believe I'm going to test the theory to see if it does or doesn't. I know for sure that paint will....what's the difference between glue and paint...they both dry!


Don....you started it!!!! After all, you did say it was "food for thought"...well I'm still thinkin' And you've done it now.... Jim's on another thread espousing his theories on how the world revolves!!!

Like Ken says.....you've just got tooooo much time on your hands!!!
