  • Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?
  • How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?
  • If 7-11 is open 24-hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?
  • If nothing ever sticks to TEFLON, how does TEFLON stick to the pan?
  • If you tied buttered toast to the back of a cat and dropped it from a height, what would happen?
  • If you're in a vehicle going the speed of light, what happens when you turn on the headlights?
  • You know how most packages say "Open here". What is the protocol if the package says, "Open somewhere else"?
  • Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?
  • Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?
  • You know that little indestructible black box that is used on planes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of the same substance?
  • Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
