Imponderables

Posted by MWBailey on Friday, October 17, 2008

Why do 24-hour grocery stores have locks on the front doors?

Why do perfectly sane and otherwise compassionate people, when confronted with a packet of alka-seltzers, suddenly become obsessed with the idea of feeding them to geese? (supposedly, it causes the poor geese to explode).

Why do tax "cuts" always end up costing us more money than just leaving well enough alone would have?

And finally:

why does our riding lawnmower owner's manual have a warning  that says,

"It is not safe to lie down under mower while blade is rotating at high speed?"

Wouldnt people be able to just figure that out on their own? And, is it safe when the blade is rotating at low speed?

Let me know if you figure any of those out...

Okay, I'll try...

They are closed on Christmas and New Years and probably during floods and hurricanes.

I don't think they are perfectly sane nor compassionate if they did that.  I thought that only bored sailors did that to seagulls.

> Why do tax "cuts" always end up costing us more money than just leaving well enough alone would have?

I think that cuts work great.  It's the increase in the scope of government and its lame attempt to micromanage the economy that is costing us.  When tax rates go down, tax revenues increase, and when the tax rates go up, revenues go down.  Ever since Cook County Illinois raised the retail tax rate to 10% I purchase gasoline and pretty much everything else in surrounding counties.

Maybe the mower's manufacturer is targeting the cognitively challenged landscapers market.

I sure hope so.  I don't think it would be safe for such power equipment to operated by those who couldn't.

> And, is it safe when the blade is rotating at low speed?

No.  That warning was written by morons - you know, the kind that really shouldn't be operating power equipment for the sake of others' safety.
