    Why are men's clothing sizes based on inches, but women's dress sizes are based on a fictitious measurement system which changes every few years?

    Consider who writes the laws - they're not going to self incriminate.

    Why do people peek at the tissue and check results after blowing their nose?

    Reca...the braille issue is actually a simple one.

    Not all ATMs are drive up. The same ones that you walk up to are the same ones that you can drive up to (machine wise, not location wise) The manufacturers have no idea where the bank will place their ATMs so in oder to avoid a discrimination lawsuit and possible govt. interference, braille is put on all ATMs.

    For the same reason they check the toilet paper after wiping their butt. We are a results driven society!

    Dont know why they do it but I was at a party with a officer buddy and he had more than two for sure. His wife asked "How many beers have you had?" In a bit of an angry voice. His reply?? "Two beers!" I will NOT let him live that one down.

    But blind people still can't read the screens, and I've never heard any talking ATM's.

    Why do freeway exit ramps have a 30 MPH speed limit? Would anyone in their right mind actually slam on their brakes when entering the exit ramp, if they have traffic behind them doing 70 MPH?

    If firefighters fight fire and crimefighters fight crime, what do freedom fighters fight?

    To make sure they still have all the more important parts?

    Why do some people choose to go under the posted speed limit only until you decide to pass them?
