    ...I don't, do you? o.o

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because they lose money due to your mistake, so you must be the one to reimburse them. Banks don't like to lose money.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The stars one is a random piece of speculation that everyone subconsciously knows is simply that - speculation. They don't take your word for it that there really are exactly 4 billion stars; they accept it as a guess. The paint thing, however, is something that most people would check simply because it could easily have dried. People like to be sure of small things like that. Also its a lot easier to check whether paint is dry or not than to single-handedly count all of the stars. -.-'

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because he is a fictional character. o.o Why could bambi talk?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ...Again, fiction. He is also used in comic books, where superhuman strength runs rampant, but 'ducking' is always a source of comic relief.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because their objective is to make it to their target destination alive so they can carry out their plans, not just randomly die along the way and achieve nothing.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Most likely the inventor of the word, I would assume. It makes sense, as it is a form of onomatopoeia - ie, the sound of the word imitated what it describes.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you knew anything about Darwin's theory and natural selection, you'd know the answer to that. To make a long story short, creatures evolve due to genetic mutations, and sometimes genetically different groups split off of the original species to form a new one. Just because humans supposedly descended from apes doesn't mean that every ape that ever existed somehow became a human.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Each bubble contains such a small amount of the original liquid that they appear white because the colour is so highly diluted. If the bubble bath had enough dye in it, the bubbles would appear as a light shade of that colour.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Probably not. Companies know that people are more likely to buy something if it is 'on sale', so many things are 'on sale' now these days, even if they were never a higher price.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    They generally aren't hoping for materializing food, actually. They were probably unable to remember every single item that was in there the last time they looked, and so they want to refresh their memory, and also look at things to see if anything appeals to them. Something may have been already eaten by someone in the family, or the fridge may have been restocked.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because they are often too lazy to walk to the garbage for the sake of a small piece of string, or whathaveyou. Often if you position the string in a certain way, the vacuum will be able to suck it up. Its easier that way, for most people.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I'm sure that statistic is a little off, in the first place. Secondly, bags are often packaged so that the flap that you grap to pull it out of the box happens to be the closed end to keep it tidier. If you are intelligent, you quickly figure this out, and automatically flip it around before attempting to open it.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ...This one should, I think, be fairly obvious. Dead bugs don't materialize in light fixtures. They crawl/fly there (yes, while still alive), then die from the light.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Oh, there are some people who will indeed go for the second response. They are the ones generally deemed 'rude'. The polite thing to do in a situation like that is graciously accept the person's apology, and realize that they probably didn't do it on purpose. Everyone makes mistakes. And in reality, it really is 'all right'. I doubt you'd die from sustaining such an injury.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because generally when you make a mad leap across a room to save something, being graceful isn't number one on your priority list. You're moving too fast to be careful, so often you'll knock something else over if there are other things nearby.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The reality is, we don't keep our houses THAT warm. In the summer we complain because the temperature is ABOVE what is comfortable...contrastingly, in the winter, it's cold. Therefore we heat our houses to raise the temperature to what is comfortable, not above it.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because mother-in-law jokes are based on a stereotype that doesn't exist as much for fathers-in-law. Why do we seldom hear 'brunette' jokes?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Obviously that statistic is a generalization based on a huge population, and can not be scaled down to include that exact amount of people.

    most of your Q's are simply answered yourself.Islam is not wanted by a large majority of the worlds population.It is an outmoded 'mysogonistic belief system just like most other major religions.Any system that condones publicly hanging 16yo rape victims has either a few questions to answer or to be completely rejected by any civilised human.You can't come back at me by saying judaism and christianity are just as bad because plainly they are not and I am neither of those. This isn't a psychology Q anyway......try the chip on the shoulder page

    HUMANS DID NOT EVOLVE FROM APES!!!

    sorry but people thinking that really annoys me.

    infact humans and apes evolved from a common ancestor which IS now extinct. so there, now you know.
