* Edited:
I wish I would've come up with them but I got this in an email this morning. Some of these made me think and I admit that I have often wondered about some of the questions myself. Like who came up to check if we could eat mushrooms and drink from the dangly things hanging from a cow? Or what red and green looks like for colorblind people? Or if what I consider blue is actually "blue" for anybody else??? How do we know we all see the same colors? What have you often wondered about??? Thoughts?

Did you get that in an email by some chance? It's weird, but for some reason I feel like I recently just read this.

'Course, it could be that I just read it here already. LOL!

Kat said...

Mags, no I totally got that in an email today.

Apart from laughing out loud it also made me wonder :) See my last paragraph.

So long.

I have asked myself some of these questions before. Like why the bank charges you for insufficient funds, HELLO. And I had to laugh about the "s" in lisp, SORRY.
