Even more Riddle me this?

1. How does a gullet work? I don't get how the food gets in if it's a closed throat, so to speak? (I am not being funny, I seriously don't get it - and am possibly that stupid).

2. How can I get a bruise this round on my arm and not know how I did it? I actually thought it was a burn at first because it was so red in the shower. Surely I should have hurt myself at the time?

3. Why don't more planets have rings?

4. Why was Wanatabe the only person allowed to say Godzilla in the movie? Is that a racist joke in there?

5. Why even bother with Binoche? That could have been anyone at all - including some extra for about $100...(Let me tell you, I was so disappointed! I love Ms Binoche)

6. Which idiot decided it's cute to have kids in action movies? It's not. It's stupid and ruins the film by boring us all to death and making the mature people like myself pretend to vomit, while rolling eyes so much that you can't actually watch the film anymore. (On racist things, has anyone noticed how American films always put the Asian kid in a baseball cap? Indiana, Godzilla, Walking Dead? What's that about?)

7. Where have all the good guys gone? (See what I did there?)

8. I have started learning German (in the car, so I'll be fluent in a few days). I learnt the words for 35 different types of wine in lesson 2. I still don't know how to pay for them. Will Germans pay for my drinks or will the next chapter be what to say if you're arrested for not paying in a bar?

9. How many beers is our Treasurer hoping to win in this lawsuit, and will he give the beers to charity? Or will he give them smokes instead? (Of course, was it really defamation as he was actually selling tickets to the sit down with him for 7334 beers a person?)

10.  We were watching Veep last night, and in it, a young man said "I'll be 22 when I finish College, and I know I'll have to carry that student loan debt with me for the next 27 years". It was meant to be depressing. Can I ask why are we taking on that highly flawed system, when we had a much better one?

Give me the answers or pose some of your own questions...

Linking up with One Mother Hen for #OpenSlather

  1. Not sure what happened to my comment - just seemed to disappear - so here goes again. Sorry - I have no idea to any of those questions but I do have a question you may be able to help me with - why is it so easy to put on weight and yet so hard to lose that same weight ?
    Have the best day !

    PS - sorry if you land up with two comments - just delete one of them !!!!!

    1. Because we are meant to carry weight on us, so that when we are sick, the body has something to eat off...(and for winter, so we don't die when food is scarce, however, in this modern age, that doesn't happen)

    1. Juliette Binoche (I saw her in Monaco and thought she was the nanny, she was so normal looking - I recognised her husband and it all fell into place)

  4. Q3: This is just a guess - Its got something to do with the number of collisions the planets get into. Meteors/ small moons etc smash into the planet and gravity forms the debris into rings? Hence size of planet - needs to be big enough to produce enough gravity. And inner planets dont have as many collisions because larger outer planets divert meteors/comets away. However by this logic Jupiter should have the most rings and clearly doesn't. We need to have a beer with an astronomer. :-)

  6. I was just about to echo your 'Why don't more planets have rings?' but I see Mumabulous is all over it so thank goodness for the comments section! As for the treasurer and his beer, I couldn't possibly comment...

  7. German, you are adventurous! As for student loan I fear for my kids, back in my day I got mine paid off quite quickly but it was cheaper back then, scary shit I reckon. I love Mumabs has the ring thing covered!!

  8. No answers for you. I have no idea what Binoche is. You're obviously a much deeper thinker than me. All I think about is cake and Karen Carpenter. Ahem.

  9. I don't have any answers. I can't even think of any actually I lie! Why do mums lose their memory or brain power when they're pregnant?

  12. My niece is quite fluent in German having gone there as an exchange student. Good for you learning a new language. The future of our kids and their education does worry me.
    With all the technology at hand to us in the present, I wonder how will we evolve in the future. For example: how will the human thumb evolve considering the amount of texting we do now. I wonder lots of weird stuff like this all the time.
