    A lot of these have perfectly reasonable answers…pizza gets delivered in a square box because it’s hard to make round boxes…psychics don’t exist…I can put mascara on with my mouth shut…pointing at your bum would be rude…apes exist because they fill a different biological niche then humans do

    And you said the thing about lethal injections twice.

    We didn’t evolve from apes; we shared a common ancestor. Male ballerinas are ballerinos. It’s weird, but it’s Italian and most ballet terms are French. Glue doesn’t stick to the bottle because it does not dry in there.

    What’s funnier is how this was written in 2010, and started getting replies only in 2012.

  13. I have never wondered “If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?” because we didn’t evolve from the apes that are extant today.
