Here is some “fun stuff” I came across. 

Do you ever wonder:  

- Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin? 

- Why is ‘abbreviated’ such a long word?  

- Why is it that doctors call what they do ‘practice’?   

- Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?  

- Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections? 

- Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together? 

- If Con is the opposite of Pro, is Congress the opposite of Progress?  

- If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal? 

Some nonsense:

- We leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

- People order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet Coke.

- Banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters. 

Some sense:

- Authoritarianism is surging in various leaderships around the world. 

- Climate and earth changes beyond human control are constant reminders to us humans of our limited control in our lives. 

- There are angels among us helping in our darkest hours.
