The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory rule (you can't get out of it!) - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you. Remember, if you'd like to be featured on the Friday Fix, send me an email, and let me know! So, without further ado, here is Kate from A Reader's Review!
1. Did Adam and Eve have bellybuttons?
I would say No. Bellybuttons are essentially a scar showing where the umbilical cord was detached from a newborn baby. Adam and Eve were born (created) as adults, so therefore no baby scars.
2. Why do people say things that supposedly "go without saying"?
Because people like to hear the sound of their own voice, so they/we have a tendency to say a lot of stupid, pointless stuff.
3. Are all shifts at a cemetery called graveyard shifts?
I think maybe yes, because I think you'd need a sense of humor to work at a cemetary. And if you didn't, you would be too scary to ask this question to anyways...
4. Why is it that those who talk to God are praying, but those God talks to are insane?
I didn't know that qualified for insanity, but I suppose if sanity is a healthy, "normal" mind and insanity is the opposite, then maybe those that hear from God are insane, because they are abnormal, in the shallowest of definitions. And maybe, we should all want to be more insane, then.... at least in that area. :)
5. Why do bars have parking lots if it's illegal to drink and drive?
Great Question. I have always wondered this myself.
I think it comes down to the cities wanting income through fines, taxes or however else they can get it. They allow bars to have parking lots, because as a business, of course a bar would want it to be convenient to their customers. The city wants the taxes from the business and to convince people to stop in their city, and then they love to be able to fine you for breaking their law. Maybe its cynical, but I don't think they really care about the lives they are risking as a result. At least you should have to give over your keys and not be allowed to get them back until you take a breathilizer test and are appropriately sober or something.
