INTRODUCTION

1. FROM THE TIME THAT WE ARE BORN GOD HAS GIVEN US AN INQUISITIVE NATURE. THE FIRST QUESTION THAT WE ASK AS CHILDREN WITHOUT EVER BEING TAUGHT IS THE QUESTION "WHY?" EVEN THOUGH I AM NOW A FULL GROWN ADULT, I STILL HAVE I GUESS WHAT YOU WOULD CALL SOME CHILDISH "WHY?" QUESTIONS. FOR EXAMPLE -DO NOT SHOW ON PP
- IF MAN EVOLVED FROM MONKEYS AND APES WHY DO WE STILL HAVE MONKEYS AND APES?
- IF ONE SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMER DROWNS DO THE REST DROWN TOO?
- WHY IS IT THAT DOCTORS CALL WHAT THEY DO "PRACTICE?"
- WHY IS IT CONSIDERED NECESSARY TO NAIL DOWN THE LID OF A COFFIN?
- WHY DON'T YOU EVER SEE THE HEADLINE, "PSYCHIC WINS LOTTERY?"
- WHY ARE THERE INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS IN HAWAII?
- YOU KNOW THAT LITTLE INDESTRUCTIBLE BLACK BOX THEY USE ON AIRPLANES? WHY CAN'T THEY MAKE THE WHOLE PLANE OUT OF THAT SAME SUBSTANCE?
- WHY DO PRISONS STERILIZE NEEDLES THAT THEY USE FOR LETHAL INJECTIONS?
- WHY DID KAMIKAZE PILOTS WEAR HELMETS?
- WHY DOESN'T GLUE STICK TO THE BOTTLE?
- WHY DOESN'T TARZAN HAVE A BEARD?
- WHY DOES SUPERMAN STOP BULLETS WITH HIS CHEST, BUT DUCKS WHEN YOU THROW A REVOLVER AT HIM?
- WHY DO PEOPLE KEEP RUNNING OVER A STRING A DOZEN TIMES WITH THEIR VACUUM CLEANER, THEN REACH DOWN, PICK IT UP, EXAMINE IT, THEN PUT IT DOWN TO GIVE THE VACUUM ONE MORE CHANCE?
