Is time an illusion?
How does the brain produce consciousness?
How much is all the tea in China actually worth?!!

Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of Its bottle?
What is art?
What is thought?

Why does your gynaecologist leave the room when you get undressed?

Why do people talk so much?
Why cant i just eat crisps?
When are you going to stop trying to get me to use PECs?

Anne Brooke said...

Love the forest one!!! Mine would be: why oh why is it Monday morning???



Elissa - Managing Autism said...

Why does it do that??? (The computer, that is!)
Why did you do that? (The kids...)
What does that mean?
Why am I so tired?

DJ Kirkby said...

My most frequest question is' Why is that funny? I don't get the joke!'

Billy Boy said...

I got told off for saying
"I don't know" !TOO MANY TIMES.

Tom Foolery (TF) said...

I like your list ...
"Is there a God?"


(PS. What is/are PECs?)

It must be end of year questions time because I just blogged on questions I was asking myself.

Do I get a gold star? ;-)

Why can't every day be a holiday?

Happy New Year!

LittleBrownDog said...

Great questions, Casdok. Mine would probably be How did I get here?

Attila The Mom said...

Too many questions for so early in the morning! LOL

Let me have some coffee and get back to you. ;-)

Love the one about why dont people walk in straight lines? also why cant I just eat crisps? Think my boys must have these thoughts go through their minds all the time! We are trying to get Z to stop laughing when people are upset or hurt. If he sees someone being sick he finds it hysterical and just doesnt get it that you shouldnt laugh!! Your poems are really great and moving.X

Jen said...

Dylan's would be "Why do these people keeping hugging me?" or "why aren't there honey-garlic wings on demand?" Rachel's would probably be "Why do you people have fun when there is so much noise?"

Mine are a bit more depressing.

Marla said...

Why do I feel so tired?
Why do people do that?
How could anyone do that?
Why do I want to eat candy all the time?
On and on and on.....

I think Maizie's would be
"Why are kids so loud and talk too much?"

Jorgo said...

My favorite question is "Can you dance?"

To which the answer is normally "no."

Casdok said...

Tf- Pecs is Picture Exchange Communication System. As C cant talk he is supposed to point to a picture to tell you what he wants! Well thats the theory! But he has other ideas, like you are supposed to be telepathic!!

BBC said...

"Do we have free will?"

No, and be thankful for it because if we practiced free will every man that wanted to have sex with you would.

Free will only exists in a room you are alone in, and then I question that.

"What questions do you often ask?"

They usually have something to do with monkeys and why isn't mankind more spiritual and loving.

Carrie Wilson Link said...

Yes. If a man is alone in a forest and speaking, he is still wrong. Always.

Palm Springs Savant said...

I often ask:
why is there so much hatred in the world?
why can't we all just get along?

good post today casdok

VAB said...

Right now, our guy's would be:
Why don't people follow the rules?
Why is there war?
Why does the goverment allow poverty?
(The last two are really variations on the first one.)

Mine would be something like:
What is success?
Why do I spend so much time reading blogs?
What's with the constant chocolate eating?

Niksmom said...

Hmmm...I think mine would be "Why can't you tell me what you need?" --to Nik of course, usually in the middle fo the night when he seems to be in agony. Sigh.

Oh, and "Why do we want to numb our felings with eating/drinking/drugs, etc...?" "When did it become **bad** to express our emotions?"

Omega Mum said...

Happy, Happy seasonal everything to you. Will try to come up with a question to match yours - not sure I can, though!

Josie said...

Great questions! Mine would be, "Why is it that no matter how early I get up in the morning, I am always late for work?"

BostonPobble said...

My most common question is "But why can't I?" followed by "How bad could it be?" and "Where are my keys?"

I hope you and C had a delightful Christmas. May your 2008 be peaceful and joyous!

the teach said...

casdok, thanks for dropping by my yours and the questions..especially since mine is called "Answers to the Questions" but if you noticed the sub title is "sometimes there are no answers." Happy New Year to you and C.

tulipmom said...

Mine would be

"Why can't the boys in this house get their pee in the potty?"


"Why do I always feel like I'm talking to myself?"

SB's questions (today) would be

"Why can't I eat birthday cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner?"


"Why can't I use lithium camera batteries in place of double AA batteries in this contraption I'm building (they ARE the same size, Mom!)?" The fact that they are 3x the price is totally lost on him.

Fennie said...

Reminds me of Pooh - 'a fish can't bird but a bird can fly. Ask me a riddle and I reply Cottleston, Cottelston, Cottleston Pie,' which is as good an answer to most questions as any.

Ian Lidster said...

I think the question 'why?' as applied to everything in the known (and unknown) universe is all you need to know. That, plus Arthur Dent's question and answer to all of this which is, as all Hitchhiker buffs know, is 42.

Daisy said...

Will I ever own hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place?

Meredith said...

I use to ponder on these ones: What is beauty, how to define it? What's life and stuff like on other planets? Why does my head hurt? (it almost always turns out to be sensory overload though...) How could I get a lot of dice for the lowest possible price? (hey, that rhymed :-)) Why do people find lying pleasant? Why do we have just one word ("kocka") for three things (cube, dice and geek)? Why is there such a thing as a nation? Why does everyone think that all spectrum folks have an affinity for math? And a whole lot of other "why"-s...

If we did not have free will, then every terrible crime ever committed was planned by a higher power.

That cannot be so.

Time is only an illusion to those who think they have all the time in the world. Patience is one thing--frivolous wasting of time is another completely.

Thank you for your comment at my blog. I hope to see you there more often!

eric1313 said...

And I figured I'd add this:

Free will of one does not cancel free will of another. If someone wants to have sex with you you may choose to tell them to do it with their self and walk away.

At least they would then be having sex with someone who loves them.

Raechelle said...

I love the gynaecologist question!
Mine would be...Why do people get annoyed when you say you don't want antother drink or another bite of food because you are on the healthy wagon?

palomino said...

Where are my keys ? is my most common question , shortly followed by 'And why do I want them anyway ?'

Lovely blog as always xx

Anonymous said...

Why me? Why my children for Gods sake?!

Those seem to be the two questions I have been asking a lot lately.

It may be selfish but I still wonder.

Anonymous said...

How should I begin?

buffalodickdy said...

All the really good questions don't have really good answers...

Frances said...

Why did I not get to know you and your wisdom before 2007?

I do wish you and dear C a happy bunch of days (remember there is an extra one) in 2008.


Randy said...

How come every computer upgrade at work results in slower functioning and hours of lost work coming up with goofy, self-thought-up work-arounds when the IT people can't figure out the problem?

leslie said...

Why can't I lose weight without having to diet and exercise? hmph!

abstractjenn said...

Why oh why do I have to work?

Why do people have to be mean?

Why do you park on the driveway and drive on the parkway?

What is the meaning of all of this?

Have a good week!

Get Off My Lawn! said...

I actually ask myself all of the questins on your list. Fortunately, I know all the answers... except I have no experience with gynaecologists so I can't help there. But what really want to know is... why are the odds of toast falling butter side down directly proportional to the value of the carpet?

Vi vi vi vooom!!!!!!!! said...

Why am I up in the middle of the night?

Jet lag this time!

Dad Stuff said...

Lately, I've heard "Why do you have to work so much?" from my kids.
I don't know.

Shadow said...

sooooo many questions....

Celticspirit said...

Is time an illusion? I've posted about this one before and yes I do believe that it is an illusion.

Phil Plasma said...

What is your third favourite colour?
How many glasses of lemonade did you drink when you were eight years old?
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
What is the highest latitude you have ever travelled to?

rainbowmummy said...

I know you'll have lost sleep over it, so glue needs to be dry to stick!
