    Insects are relatively light and can ride air waves on the way down. It's like the difference between dropping a tissue and dropping a box of tissues.

    Also, they have a chitin exoskeleton which is extremely tough and protects them well. So, spiders fall lightly, and bigger bugs have pretty good body armor. A bigger bug might fall kind of hard and be slightly stunned, but it can get right back up with no problem.

    We're much squishier.

    Why is it whenever you tell somebody you can't find something (wallet, keys and the like) they always ask the same immortal question:

    "Where did you leave it last?"

    or when you lock you keys in your car:

    "How did it happen?"

    How is it that the burger and the bun start out roughly the same size, but when I'm almost done, the burger is five times larger than the amount of bread that's left, forcing me to pinch the square inch with two fingers before the whole things falls apart altogether?

    I think "Cold-Hearted Killer Fowl Wielding The Icy Hand of Death" fits rather nicely under "Icy Stuff".

    Where I work it is actually along cultural boundaries. White people park head first, the white washed Mexicans park head first, But the really really Mexican people back in.

    I imagine it is so they can bail out faster if they get a tip La Migra is going to be doing a raid.

    What's with the sudden influx of people wearing earbuds and headphones while driving? Wasn't that ALWAYS dangerous?

    One might be able to blame this on the iPhone, with its headphone-talking capability.

    While it's obviously dangerous, is it actually significantly more-so than loud music?

    I dunno. With music even being moderately loud, I can still hear outside noises that might be pertinent to safe driving. When I wear earbuds or something, it blocks out most of everything. I think that's the point of them.

    I never actually back into a parking spot like that, but if the spot ahead of me is clear I'll pull forward into that one so I can just drive forward when exiting. I think they may explain most of the cars you see parked as if they backed in.

    I find that it is sometimes easier to back into a spot than pull in nose first.

    When I had my full-sized, quad cab pickup, that was the only way I could park in a lot of cases.

    It IS dangerous.

    I assume that they are either too stupid to understand the risks or can't afford a car stereo system that is compatible with their ipod or mp3 player of choice.

    Why do I like big boobs so damn much? I've considered hitting on some seriously marginal women simply because they had huge tits. This is why I don't drink when I go out, because I know sooner or later I'd end up doing something I'd regret the next morning.

    On a similar note, why is it that whenever I can't find something, all I need to do is ask "Hey, have you seen the olive oil (or whatever)?" and as soon as the words come out I see it sitting there right in front of my fucking face and I look like an idiot to the person I just asked?

    Ya ever been sitting around a bonfire or standing over a BBQ pit, and no matter where you move, the smoke always follows you?

    As the smoke is billowing in your face, say "I hate rabbits" out loud three times.

    The smoke friggin' goes away and starts bothering someone else. Try it- its amazing.
