WHY??

By: mobal , 1:59 AM GMT on December 30, 2008

Why is it that all the recipes call for one or two pounds of ground but the stores package is 1.56 or 2.34? Never in exact pounds……

Heck, speaking of ground reminds me of an age old one…Why is it called a "hamburger" when there is no ham in it?

Why cant you sneeze with your eyes open?

Why do they say partly cloudy instead of partly sunny?

Why is most sandwich meat round and bread is square?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Why do we press the start button to turn off the computer?

Ok, Just thinking……

Hi Mobal,

Hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas Week. Ours was just great and lots of memories were made. The grands are so much fun.

But I am so far behind on my WUBA Friends, will have to catch up soon!

You all have a wonderful New Year's Eve!


Awesome Friends

Why do we press the start button to turn off the computer?

Actually on my computer, the power button or start button as you call it, has no label to identify it. It just has a symbol on the button that lights up when the computer is running. Of course you could make this point about the little green START click button in Windows. But this button doesn't turn off the computer. It only leads to three new buttons that let you choose RESTART, OFF, or PAUSE/HYBERNATE. Talk about making things confusing.

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

Pizza Hut is now selling square pizzas in square boxes. I guess they must have came up with the same question.

Have you ever noticed that Wendy's hamburgers are square instead of round?
Of course the buns are still round. Go figure!

It's been a while since I went grocery shopping, but the last time I did, Ground Beef (aka:hamburger) was sold in 1, 2, 5, and 10 pound packages. I wasn't aware that had changed. As to why it's still called Hamburger comes from the fact that many years ago before the government forced the meat industry to clean up it's act. Hamburger was a conglomeration of all the junk or waste meat that was not considered good enough to be sold as steak, roast, or chops. And Hamburger could contain cuts of pork as well as beef. Now the meat is supposed to be sold as Ground Beef, Ground Pork, Ground Turkey, etc.

I would be interested to find out if the hamburger that is being sold in packages of 1.56 or 2.34 pounds also have metric measures of grams, kilograms, or some other metric measurement on the package. I've noticed that most bottled liquids are now sold in liters instead of ounces. Of course the capacity is also specified in ounces, but with an odd number. Just a thought.

I think the government is making people sick so the drug companys make loads of money by selling medications that don't work. These "medications" would make you sicker in the long run and you would die quicker. I think that is their way of seceretly lowering the earths human population.

Nothern beats homemade pizza though.

I never get the flu and I have never got a flu shot in 10 years and I don't plan on getting one. The shots have harmful chemicals in them like murcery and other heavy metals.

Well Aub, I was sitting here earlier right? All at once I felt sick, just came on suddenly within like 2 secs. I have diagnosed myself but it would take too much to explain, all I know is I should be back 100% in a couple of days.

Can you talk at all Aub? I haven't chatted with you on the phone since Summer ...

He worked at one of the original Pizza Huts when he was young & cannot stand the thought of Pizza, especially with red sauce.
Sometimes, I can convince him to order "white" pizza.... Blah!!!

Hope she is better soon! That's terrible...

We had "dog issues" earlier this evening. Giving the little rascals a bath & discovered a tick! Gross!!!!!
Ironically, the local paper had an article about ticks in yesterdays paper. We put vaseline on the gross blood sucking pest and it came right out. We then disposed of the blood sucker by putting it in alcohol to kill it!

Hi Aub:
Long time no see.
As to why they're call 'Hambugers',
Google the name "Charlie Nagreen", click the wikipedia link and find the answer.

(just a bit of Wisconsin history)

Take Care All and Happy New Year
