Life's Pressing Questions

1. Teddy bears; Winnie the Pooh; Care Bears; bears are always
represented to children as being cute and cuddly, lovable and friendly.
In real life, your average bear considers children good eating. Why the
dichotomy?

2. How can anyone eat a fungus?

3. How can anyone not like the Douglas Adams books?

4. How can anyone not like Corner Gas?

5. Who has the authority to tell me about what syntax I am or am not
allowed to use in grammar, and on what basis did they earn that
authority? Why do we bow to it?

6. Is the fact that it's 9:18 AM as I write this at all relevant?

Because all cute bears are stuffed. Stuffed bears can't, and won't, eat children, though sometimes, a mother wishes they might.
2. How can anyone eat a fungus?
I don't. Yuck!
3. How can anyone not like the Douglas Adams books?
Two words, Dennis Bateman!
4. How can anyone not like Corner Gas?
I think you really have to be into commedy to like CG; I tried several eps and could not get the humor. Also, I relate better to books rather than TV.
5. Who has the authority to tell me about what syntax I am or am not allowed to use in grammar...?
No one, unless it's immensely incorrect, you ain't got no right to tell nobody else how dey can talk, man! :) LOL
6. Is the fact that it's 9:18 AM as I write this at all relevant?
Probably, because of the way the Toews mind works.
