    Questions that have no logical answer

    As the batteries get weaker in the remote, why do we press harder on the buttons???

    Post your "I dunno" question.

    The same reason that when we are speaking to a foreigner and he/she doesn't understand, we repeat what we said, only louder (eventually shouting at the top of our voices).

    Why is it people ask a question and before an answer is forthcoming ask another, usually requiring an opposite answer to the first one?

    Oh sorry, that's the reply to the question, "Why do you always answer a question with another question?"

    (as a former NYer)...when the elevator doesn't arrive as quickly as you expect, you press the button again ... repeatedly.

    Or we say it real slow while over-pronunciating the word. Like that really does anything!

    ...Or when you get that momentary hang in your computer, you start clicking a billion things to check if your computer locked up only to find your self wasting more time as those billion things finally open and now you have to close them all. I hate when I do that!

    If humans had a third arm coming out of the center of their chest, where would automakers place the driver side airbag?

    Why do we learn so much stuff in schools and colleges that we are going to end up NOT using in the future?

    Also, why don't we learn so much stuff in schools and colleges that we actually NEED as we grow bigger?

    We expect for a miracle to happen so that we can say to others that we can even change the tv channel even if the battery is dead. and it's remote CPR.
