    Too funny! I have screamed the bug/light fixture question to DH when we change the outside light bulbs.

    As for the refrigerator question....hope never dies. There may be a last slice of pie hidden behind the yogurt!

    Hey Sheldon,
    I thought we were supposed to do all that stuff. Now I'm thoroughly confused.

    one thing i hate about being an engineer. instead of laughing at half these jokes, i answer the questions.
    Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
    i wont get to far into it, i could do all sorts of surface tension calculations but i will spare you. pretty much the pigment just cant stay around the bubble, it all just falls to the bottom of the bubble. so at the very bottom of the bubbles is a very very tiny concentrated dot of pigment.
    now here is the fun part- someone managed to make colored bubbles:
    http://www.zubbles.com/
    some really smart scientists guy figure out how to do it,
    not only that, he figured out how to make the pigment rub away with a small amount of friction, so when the bubble pops on ur hid and they have a green spot on their arm, you just rub it and it disappears

    Now that looks to be almost as much fun as the bubbles that can last for the better part of a day once they land. N I know just what you mean about the engineer part, once I took the "Statics and Strength" course at college I never looked at a roller coaster the same way again.

    As a doc we laughed about using alchol for lethal injection but the reason is it makes it easier to see the vein to get the needle in. so it goes
