As you might be able to tell I like information and I've come up with another thread to go with The Useless Information Archive and The Way to Much Information Depository. This the Pointless Question Repository, it's for those odd little questions that dont really have an answer. For example - Is there such a thing as a blue raspberry if not why do we have blue raspberry flavour sweets? or Why do they make bubblegum flavoured sweets why not just eat bubble gum? or Why do KamiKaze(sp?) piolets wear helmets?
You may have a go at answering these question if you want but that is not the point of the thread. The point is to collect all these odd questions together.

Why do some people say "for God's sake" when they don't believe in any sort of god?
Why isn't "phonetic" spelled the way it sounds?
If Barbie (my least favorite toy) is so popular, then why do you have to buy her stupid friends?
Why do we play in recitals and recite in plays?
If Superman is so smart, then why does he wear his brightly colored underwear on the outside? laugh.gif

But if 700 pounds is as much wood as a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood, then she's entirely correct. wink.gif
Anyway, why on earth do people care about the current fashion when the clothes will be overpriced and out of style next year?

Here's what I found at Google Answers.

QUOTE
ANSWER:
About 700 pounds. Compared to beavers, groundhogs/woodchucks are not
adept at moving timber, although some will chew wood. (At Cornell,
woodchucks that gnaw their wooden nest boxes are given scraps of
2-by-4 lumber.) A wildlife biologist once measured the inside volume
of a typical woodchuck burrow and estimated that -- if wood filled the
hole instead of dirt -- the industrious animal would have chucked
about 700 pounds' worth

State Department of Environmental Conservation; Mammals of the Eastern
United States, Second Edi tion, William J. Hamilton Jr. and John O.
Whitaker Jr.

For anyone who can be bothered to look, Jonman answered that in the Ask Jonman thread. I cannot however remeber what he said. (although it may well have been 700lb)

Why does fashion dictate that women wear uncomfortable high heels when they were invented by a man and give you knee and back problems?

Why do people revere pointless pop icons like Hilary Duff?

Why did Titanic win eleven Oscars when it's naught but a soppy love story with good special effects when the ship sank and "My Heart Will Go On," the most annoying pop ballad I've ever had the misfortune to hear?

*looks at list* Possibly these have answers, but I'm mainly asking these out of frustration with life.

Who is it that, no matter how carefully you safeguard them, always manages to nab your lighter?

Why is it so much more frustrating to have a cigarette and no lighter rather than a lighter and no cigarette?

Where do you buy a lighter in a small village at 4:30am when you cant drive?

What is the worst thing in the world? (seriously, find 10 people that totallyagree with you on that...)

Did anyone ever have a Blue Strawberry Ice Lolly? (One of them cheap 20p one's from your local corner shop when your mum would give you a pound and you'd get excited!)

I always wondered whether or not there were actually Blue strawberries? You say that's silly, but there are Blueberries, so why not blue strawberries?

Genetic modification to plants makes the unlikely blue strawberry more likely to exist eventually. Anyway, there's no blue strawberries because we already have blueberries. What with the ocean and the sky, it would just be too much blue to handle. tongue.gif
Why do we call public toilets "restrooms" when you can't rest there and "bathrooms" when they obviously have no baths?

Hate to disapoint you but those blue strawberry lollies were probably blue raspberry.
