Here are a few more things I have recently wondered about, if you know the answers please feel free to share them with me.
I want to know how they assign social security numbers, and who has the very first one? Was the first number 000-00-0001. Cause that is a pretty cool number. You could walk around and literally say “I’m number 1!”
Why isn’t Halloween a bank holiday? I think since it is my favorite holiday it needs to be up there with Christmas and Thanksgiving. It really makes me angry that they only sell Halloween merchandise for like three weeks but I can find Christmas decorations starting after Valentine’s Day. This just doesn’t make any sense to me.
How different do you think our world would be if the wheel was never invented? I personally think that life would be simpler. We wouldn’t have to be in a huge rush to get everywhere, and everything we needed would be in walking distance. I also think we would be healthier and more fit.
Are genetics really responsible for making some people obese or is that just a lazy excuse? I do know that genetics can make it more difficult to lose weight, but that doesn’t mean with the right amount of will power, people could keep themselves from becoming obese. Just a thought.
What do animals think about? Seriously! I mean my dog clearly has dreams that she whimpers and barks during, what could she possibly be stressing over to have such loud dreams.
Should the government be able to enforce what we eat? I work in a restaurant that has changed our children’s menu to follow the guidelines that the First Lady believes children should eat. However, it isn’t food that children want to eat. So should I still be able to get food for my kids that I want to feed them or is it one day going to be considered a crime to eat junk food?
To go along with that, I watch parents tell their kids that they can’t have soda and then these same parents down like seven Cokes. Is that fair? Children learn better if you lead by example not just by words. Sugar and junk food isn’t good for anyone if you have too much.
What do you think will bring the end of the world or civilization as we know it? I think over sanitizing everything. Viruses and bacteria have been around way longer than we have. They survive because they can adapt to their surroundings. They become stronger the more we use antibacterials. They actually become more resistant to it. This also weakens our immune systems, which could mean one day our bodies won’t be able to fight off infections. This may just be what leads to a “zombie” outbreak. Just take a minute and think about it.
How do fish communicate with one another. They have to be able to, right? If not, why do the group together into schools?
Why haven’t we actually made contact with aliens? My thoughts are that if we were created by an all powerful being, why would this being also create a universe filled with different galaxies and planets but only create life on one planet? Or, even if we were all created by chance with molecules colliding into one another, would this also happen in other places? The universe is so big to have life on only one planet. Maybe we are just too far away from other life that we will never be able to reach them.
And I will leave you with this thought; who ever said growing up was fun, cause its not. Their are bills, and jobs that I hate, and responsibilities. This was not what I was looking forward to as a kid. I miss my carefree days of laying in bed and watching TV and sneaking candy and soda. These were the days of playing games and having no worries. I now must get back to my responsibilities, until next time, enjoy life.
