Is your glass half full or half empty?

BarnacleBill's avatar

@partyparty It is always full – ½ air, ½ liquid.

Why cannot humans live in harmony?

ucme's avatar

@partyparty Back when I was a kid I did, poodles mostly :¬(

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@ucme Interesting question. I haven’t seen it in many years. It was back when we had dogs that were allowed to roam free and dog poop sat in the yard through a storm or two that bleached it dry without destroying its shape…sort of petrtified. Maybe it was due to the dogs getting a regular dose of human food, whereas the last dog I owned was only fed dog food and no human scraps.

@partyparty half reality, half opportunity for improvement.

jerv's avatar

@partyparty Overengineered; there is too much glass for the available amount of liquid.

downtide's avatar

Why do you never see baby pigeons?

About white dog-shit, I think its because dogs don’t get fed bones so much any more.

And the glass is half full but any minute now, I’ll knock it over.

ucme's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Sounds plausible enough. I pick up my dog’s doo dah every time. Still see quite a few folk who don’t. Lazy bastards! Although in this weather….snowing a lot….all dog poo is white. Buried as it is.

Blueroses's avatar

Can Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that even he could not eat it?

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

“Why do you never see baby pigeons?”

Damn! You’re right!

…and no, that wasn’t an answer to your question…

bkcunningham's avatar

Fledglings are very similar in size and appearance to adult pigeons. Sorry.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Those must be some pretty big eggs!

@DancingMind You sound like me when my kids used to ask why all the time.
Oh yea you forgot “because I said so!”

Soubresaut's avatar

@JustJessica—my sister and I would do that to each other all the time. If only one of us knew the “because I said so!” it might’ve ended sooner! haha. We stopped when we lost track of how many because’s needed to be said.

What do you mean what do I mean what do you mean? childhood memories with dad, we always said that

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@Blueroses Would Jesus drink a beer on the beach? And what kind of car would he drive?

@downtide Great question about pigeons. A video for you. Thank goodness human children don’t grow this quickly.

What would Jesus do?

lloydbird's avatar

Does the word indescribable describe that which is indescribable?

bkcunningham's avatar

What is the last number?

Blueroses's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Well, I know God drove a Plymouth because the Bible says He drove Adam and Eve from the Garden in His Fury.

Jesus probably preferred Honda as the Apostles did… “All 12 were in one Accord…”

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck had attended the Cordon Bleu cooking school in France and was married to one of the former members of the Backstreet Boys?

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Is this the never ending question, thereby making it the greatest question of all time, which if it doesn’t break Fluther, it may surely become the very last page of the entire world wide internet?

Blueroses's avatar

@tigress3681 that is the ultimate question

ETpro's avatar

@Blueroses Could’a fooled me. I thought @tigress3681 had the ultimate answer.

tigress3681's avatar

@Blueroses LOL, I had an answer I was unpleased with but this website doesnt let you delete them, so I put blank text in. You are right though, the ultimate unanswerable question is the one you do not or cannot ask!

meiosis's avatar

If a man says something in the woods, and there isn’t a woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

Blueroses's avatar

@meiosis yes. next question.

@tigress3681 A question so esoteric that it cannot even be written. Maybe the original of these? Could Chuck Norris ask a question so deep and meaningful that he, himself couldn’t answer it?

mattbrowne's avatar

Why am I me?

GracieT's avatar

Because you are not me?

(Sorry, needed to be sad! ;o) )

ETpro's avatar

@mattbrowne I think @GracieT is right. I know everybody wanted to be me, but I was already taken.

RealEyesRealizeRealLies's avatar

Why am I about to “stop following” this question?

mattbrowne's avatar

Well, I find it interesting that this question has occurred and still occurs to so many children.

GracieT's avatar

OK, everybody. I always got C’s in spelling. “Hooked On Phonics Worked For Me”, obviously! :o)

Dutchess_III's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Actually, the white dog shit is due to the composition of the dirt in your yard. When we lived in this one house in Wichita that happened. When we moved it didn’t happen any more. I think my son said it was due to the clay in the dirt. Or alkali? It didn’t have anything to do with the dog’s diet. I know this question has been burning in your mind for the last 6 years…
