I need some answers.......

Recommended Posts

A friend posed an every day riddle of modern life the other day....'Why isn't phonetic spelt the way it sounds? I had no answer to this , but it got me thinking of an idea for a new thread. Post up your  riddle of modern day life and see if anyone can answer it. I guess most will go un-answered, but the riddles should be entertaining and thought provoking in themselves. Here's a few I thought of....if you can answer any, please do....and don't forget to add yours.

Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?
Why is abbreviation such a long word?
Why do we leave a car worth thousands of pounds on the drive, but lock the lawn mower in the garage?
Why do people pay to go up tall buildings, then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?
Why, in America, do they sterilize the needle for a lethal injection?
Why can't women put on mascara with their mouths closed?
