    things that make you go...



    went to the ATM this morning to get out some fun tickets (you know, for snakes and sparklers). noticed that there is braille on the numbers of the machine. seems odd seeing that it is a drive through ATM. so people are too blind to read numbers, but aren't blind enough to lose their driving privilege?

    Good point. The only thing I could think of is that when a atm is made there is no difference between a number pad made for a drive-up or walk-up number pad.

    Another one I've noticed that seems strange:
    Vending Machines (the ones with the number-letter combo). They can tell what they press, great, still don't know what they're getting.

    This doesn't even make sense. None of those things happen, and then you end your sentence with a random jumbling of letters that don't mean anything. What's wrong with you?

    Holy 30 year old observations, Batman.

    So, why do I park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?

    Why do people store $50,000 cars in the driveway so they can fill their garage with junk?

    Why do they call it a building after it's done?

    Why do Hip-Hop "artists" where clothes with ignignia that need to get blurred out at the video shoot?

    Re: things that make you go...

    I don't understand when food places use the term "daily special." Is it really that special if it is daily? Even if it is "special" just for let's say Mondays...it still isn't that special.

    and what's the deal with airline food?

    If pro is the opposite of con, then what is the opposite of progress?

    Wow, so you are saying that you've never seen a blind person wander up to a drive through ATM and take money out? Dude get out of your cave.
