    Things people should probably ask themselves

    Why do people who subject themselves to McDonalds "food" buy bottled water?

    Why does Washington DC, supposedly the nerve center of American freedom prohibit its residents from owning serious firepower, or even so much as allow guns to be kept ready for home defense?

    Why does a soccer mom need an 11mpg SUV to drop off her brats at school?

    What is the point of a hot water heater? Why do we heat already hot water?


    Now, more stupid questions please.

    I can answer #1. I like mcDonalds food, but I don't like soda and the ice tea sometimes tastes old or moldy so I get water. I prefur burger king though double woppers and king sized onion rings in dipping sauce rule with an iced tea or water of course. Today I'm having KFC big bucket o chicken deep fried fowl yummy, any other questions I can help with?

    I can answer #4 because I have been a Master Plumber for 30 odd years. Technically it is called a "water heater". Not a hot water heater. It can be also called a "hot water tank". A device for the storage of hot water until needed. The box that each water heater comes in states, "40 [or 50 or whatever size] Gallon Water Heater".

    Why do they have Braille buttons at the ATM drive up windows?

    What makes people think that drinking water melted from an ancient glacier is older than the water they drew from the spigot this morning?

    If one train leaves LA at 12:00 travelling 100 mph, and another train leaves NY at 13:00 travelling 120mph, what's a synonym for barcolounger?

    in that vein, what the hell is up with Dasani? Why do people buy bottled tap water made by coca cola?

    Oh well, I guess we had the advantage of Dell Boy to warn us of these sorts of shenanigans.

    Why is change begrudged and not accepted and dealt with?

    Why does religion play such a large part in so many people's decisions even to the point of what car they should buy?

    Why do some people feel that respect should be given and not earned?

    Why has political correctness become so accepted?

    Why has health and safety killed children's ability to play as I can remember playing?

    Why do people insist on building houses on flood plains and then complain when they're flooded out?

    Why do people bash Americans for the very same problems they've brought upon themselves (obesity, drugs, *** violence, packaging within packaging, inability to walk places)?

    Why have people become more insistent that they're right and you're dead?

    Why, when dealing with urban sprawl, do people insist on building out and not up?

    Why is no good deed un-punished?

    Why do bad things happen to good people?

    Why is government reactive and very rarely pro-active?

    Another question about water heaters, why do people have them instead of on demand type systems? They run only when you need them, and last far, far longer.

    Initial expense. The inline water heaters service one faucet while the tanks can service the entire home.

    Allen, they actually have ones powerful enough to service whole houses. Perhaps not American-sized McMansions, but they work for homes of modest size. Not popular in the states.

    Why do we keep wasting precious petroleum producing little bottles that we fill with water and sell?
