I’d go BASE jumping on Miranda, one of the moons of Uranus. Miranda has a cliff known as Verona Rupes which is 5km high and is believed to be our solar system’s highest cliff (going by our current knowledge). That height coupled with Miranda’s minuscule 0.018g would make BASE jumping from it a spectacular ride down that would last over ten minutes. You’d only need a very small jetpack to land safely on your feet. That would be pretty sick I think.
If an ambulance is on its way to save someone, and it runs someone over, does it stop to help them?
I would think so. They’re already there. BRB going to jump in front of ambulance.
Why do men have nipples?
Because an X chromosome is a hell of a drug.
If man evolved from monkeys, how come we still have monkeys?
Richard Dawkins would be so pissed that you’re asking this.
Is it still illegal to park next to a fire hydrant, even if your car is on fire?
I think it is, yes. But damn it if it isn’t convenient!
Satan, a close follower of Madonna, dropped his last name to be more like her.
What’s your worst pet peeve?
Having ear buds pulled unexpectedly from my ears!
Why do people say they “slept like a baby” when babies wake up every few hours?
I thought it was because they wake up in the night crying, like babies do.
When lightning strikes the ocean, why don’t all the fish die?
Fish are tough. Lightning isn’t enough.
Did Noah have woodpeckers on the ark? If he did, where did he keep them?
Trick question. Woodpeckers evolved after noah’s ark sank in the north atlantic in 1912.
Why put a towel in the dirty clothes basket if when you get out of the shower you are clean?
Because surely drying oneself off is not the only thing that towel has been used for… Towels have great practical value. For example, you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V.
How irresistible is this force? Irresistible like a snickers bar? If that’s how irresistible it is, then it gets eaten.
If there’s a speed of sound and a speed of light, is there a speed of smell?
No, but there is a speed of love. It’s 89.
Why is a carrot more orange than an orange?
Not all carrots are orange, and not all oranges are carrots.
Why is tuna sometimes called “tuna fish”? Chicken is never called “chicken bird”.
Because Kentucky Fried Chicken Bird sounds stupid!
Why can’t women put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Little known fact time: It’s a reflex! When a person, man or woman, applies mascara he or she subconsciously opens their mouth because millions of years ago our ancestors used to salt their food with their own tears. Now that we, as a species, have developed better food preparation methods we no longer require ocular salting. And the way those tears were teased out was similar to how one applies mascara. And now you know. And knowing is half the battle.
We assume you create awkward moments, or revel in awkward moments… are there any that come to mind?
Every time a high-five or handshake gets left hanging, the child in me rejoices. I find no greater joy than to witness those magic moments and the poor bastard left hanging!
