Only in America, do we have so many freedoms. Only in America will some vote for a Socialist who will promptly remove many of those freedoms.

Hehe, I have seen these before but they are always funny to read again. Two I would like to comment on:

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Yes, WHY?

You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

You know, that is a very good, legitimate question. Laughing

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

AHHHH HA HA HA

And do you know, I try to do this. I really do. But it truly is impossible. chuckle And if you wear contact lenses, as I do, you'll find it holds true there, too.
