I know most of you will have heard of the ponderings or musings as they are sometimes called like, “How does the man who drives the snowplough get to work in the morning?” or “If cats always land on their feet, and toast always lands butter side down…what would happen if you tied buttered toast to the back of a cat?”
It does make you think about things though, well it does me anyway. Lifes mysteries for example..and no, I don’t mean anything deep and meaningful like “Why are we here”.
For example, who was the person that decided you could get drinkable milk from a cow? I mean come on, we all accept it as normal now, but you have to consider that a farmer with a serious fetish and far too much time on his hands must have made this “discovery” somehow ;-)
And whilst we are on the subject of foodstuffs…who the hell discovered that you could eat some of a blowfish, just not all of it. Surely, having discovered that fish can be quite tasty and catching an interesting looking fish to try, Mofufu would have been shocked that eating it killed Ughawe and would have given up on that particular fish. Who made the decision to keep eating bits of it until people stopped dying?
Why do we turn the radio volume down when we are driving and looking for an address?
Why do we get quieter when talking to someone further away, say across the street?
I am also curious as to why it is, that, whenever you dial a wrong number…there is always someone to answer the phone. Or, if you are waiting for a package to be delivered, it will arrive the moment you go to the toilet.. similar thing with visitors turning up, or the phone ringing the second you get into the bath.
What about you? What are your imponderables?
