*Why is there an entry for the word 'dictionary' in a dictionary?
*How does glue not stick to the inside of the bottle?
*Does fuzzy logic tickle?
*What do you plant to grow a seedless watermelon?
*If vegetarians love animals so much, why do they eat all their food?
*Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected become the expected?
*How can the words 'overlook' and 'oversee' mean the opposite?
*How do you tell when you are out of invisible ink?
*Why is 11 not pronounced as 'onety one'?

"Why is there an entry for the word 'dictionary' in a dictionary?
--Because if you give someone a dictionary and point them to the word then they could learn a little bit
*How does glue not stick to the inside of the bottle?
--Glue requires air to solidify, leave the bottle open and it sticks
*Does fuzzy logic tickle?
--being that logic isn't a physical thing, probably not
*What do you plant to grow a seedless watermelon?
--genetically engineered seeds
*If vegetarians love animals so much, why do they eat all their food?
--Because vegitarians don't eat animal's food. they eat food they/we grow
*Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected become the expected?
--it simply means expect things that you don't think of to happen
*How can the words 'overlook' and 'oversee' mean the opposite?
-- not heard of this, but overlook means you are looking out over something, oversee is you are in charge of people. kind of obvious
*How do you tell when you are out of invisible ink?
--black light...
*Why is 11 not pronounced as 'onety one'?
-- same reason twenty one isnpt pronounced twoty one
*If the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
--nothing is everything, everything is itself so by perspective, everything but yourself is the audience
*Why is 'abbreviation' such a long word?
--not really that long. supercalafragalisticexpialodocious (sp) is much longer
*If yesterday were today, then wouldn't today be yesterday?
--not heard of this one but yes, that probably would be how it goes

so in retrospect here, these questions really don't make you think that much if you have a good grasp of logic.

Why is Bra Singular and Panties Plural?

If a Deaf Guy goes to Court is it still called a Hearing?

Can a Hearse carrying a Corpse drive into the Carpool Lane?

How come people point to their Wrist when asking for the time but never to their crotch when they have to go to the bathroom?

well in japan its pantsu or something

I'm no expert but I assume it would be called a signing.

Can a Hearse carrying a Corpse drive into the Carpool Lane?
a hearse probably drives wherever it damn well pleases lol

How come people point to their Wrist when asking for the time but never to their crotch when they have to go to the bathroom?
because that would be inapropriate in public

I Think you might be taking these Q's too personal peeps

Your glue theory is good. Watermelon...... Ok.Ink one good.Yesterday/Today.... well done. Does fuzzy logic thinkle? well, obviously thoughts aren't phisical atributes, the only thing i can deduct about this is that more complex thoughts make you think harder, the answer to that is of course, yes. Why is 11 not pronounced as 'onety-one'. well, think about it for a bit, your response made it a bit difficult, why would 11 be onety one if its the predecessor of 'twenty one', therefore making it the immediate unique number wich is souly pure, unlike other numbers, it is nondivisible, unless you would like to go the fraction's way, for example: 3 can be divided into 2 by 1.5, but the number is still greater than one, as long as the whole divisible number is lower, the answer is always greater than 1. that is why you always say 'one-hundred' equally to 'two-hundred'. but enough about that, think a bit about the animal/ vegetarian one peeps. it says "if vegetarians love animals so much, why do they eat all of their food?" what i concluded from this is, if a person likes something, why do they eat what they eat, meaning that most consumable animals are indeed, vegetarian. so why do people take their food, well thats my theory. NOW, on to the dictionary one, this is perhaps the most complex of all the Q's ive found, it makes you think a bit more if you are unsimplist to the manor. I will let you rethink that one a bit peeps, but i will give you just one little clue for starters: why would a box be inside a box of boxes, if the box is the box itself.

Im suure i left some Q's out, but these are the main more inportant ones. And besides, i dont have time now

i don't see how my responses make it to be personal in any way....

and I don't feel like explaining anything else, it is pure logic, these questions make people who don't understand or able to use logic think I guess.

as for the animel thing, let me first say that, lions and tigers and bears oh my, eat meat, bears eat a bit of both, but there are a large amount of animals that eat meat so that making anyone think is just plain silly. so if you exclude those carnivors, then from what I have seen MOST herbivors eat.. grass. I do not know of any vegitarian that eats grass. sure there are a few animals that eat fruits, many of those fruits are poisonous to humans.
