Why is an electrical outlet called an outlet when you plug things into it? Shouldn’t it be called an inlet?


Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?


If the #2 pencil is the most popular, why’s it still #2?


Why is it that when you’re driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?


Why isn’t 11 pronounced “onety-one”?

My country Panamá is awesome. Most people can speak English. Our currency is the american dollar. Night life is very fun, we know how to party. You can drive from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean in 1 hour and a half. We have great all inclusive beach hotels or you can escape to the mountains. You can go see the Panama Canal.
People are super friendly and happy and the food is just out of this world. It is worth visiting.
Nice to know! All I know about Panama is the prison scene because of Prison break series. :D

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are flat?

Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is not enough?

Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?

Do married people live longer than single ones or does it only seem longer?

Do you cry under water?

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

Why does your Obstetrician, Gynaecologist leave the room when you get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway ?

Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream ??

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests? (This one kills me !!!!)
