5.) (Continued)...but after a thousand years, everybody has gotten used to the way the alphabet is arranged, so why change it? (Incidently, the term "alphabet" comes from the first two letters of the GREEK alphabet: "alpha" and "beta." Why? I have no idea!)
6.) A past tense in the present tense? Why are doctors and lawyers referred to as "practicing their profession?" What are they practicing for?
7.) Because since the 1940's most of us silly Americans can't seem to tell the difference between "in" and "un."
8.) Theologists argue that yes, Adam and Eve did have navels because they were the "prototype" for all future humans and all humans would have navels, etc. etc.
9.) It's just a cartoon.

1.) Squinting is a bad habit, but people think that somehow it will "focus" their eyes like a camera lens. I don't think it really does.
2.) Never mind "homework", why isn't that teacher trying to find some sort of Assistance for that homeless child and his/her family?
3.) As the late, great George Carlin put it: "We have an animal called 'the fly' but we don't have an animal called 'the walk'. You think that would have come first."
4.) Technically, water itself has NO expiration date. The expiration date on the bottles is soley for rotation of stock.
5.) It took a thousand years for the Latin/Roman/English alphabet to be "frozen" in the order it is now. Some have suggested rearanging it and/or eliminating a few letters...

Who was the first person to see an egg, and where it came from, and assume it was so edible?

Yeah, for one, it focuses the light. It's like using a smaller aperture opening on a camera or using a fast shutter speed. Less light in, more focused light.

Inflammable is a special word.

The word "flammable" originally didn't exist; only "inflammable" was used. (it meant that something could catch on fire easily)

However, because more and more foreign people moving into the US, trying to learn English, the word "inflammable" was confusing since "in-" normally means "not" and inflammable should mean the opposite of what it does, so people just started using "flammable."

1. Changes focus of eyes
2. Yes
3. Because it wouldn't get off the ground and fly
4. No, it'd be a disabled fly, or maybe just "ptera?"
5. By law any companies that produce consumables must have an expiration date on it, the plastic bottle itself also makes the water impure over time
6. Because it is...?
7. Again, because.
8. You know nothing of the origin of language do you?
9. There were no "first humans" placed on this Earth by "God" but I'm pretty sure any man called Adam or woman called eve have belly buttons, yes.
10. Because it's not real... and there would be no point in a cartoon if that was the case. -I know the thought of THINKING over these things may be crazy to you... but it's just not. Thumb down for you.

The alpha bet is said in that order because it rhymes and is easy for kids to remember.
