What's with that.....

Obviously I was just a passenger here, but I look really happy huh?
you will understand these pictures better after reading the hub

While on a recent road trip I was driving home and got bored. I began some deep thinking while driving down the highway at 70 mph. It was perfect timing I know. My husband was with me but he fell asleep and left me to my own devices, which is never a good idea. I should be supervised at all times, but especially while driving. Anyway I got to thinking about life's biggest mysteries, or at least life's biggest mysteries in my mind. I have decided to share my deep thoughts with all my hub friends and anyone who happens to stumble upon this hub and takes the time to read it. Maybe it will inspire deep thinking for those who read it or maybe just maybe I can get some answers. Really that's what this hub is all about, I need answers people, and I need them now.
Ok so now you might be wondering what kind of deep thoughts could go on in that head of hers, and that is a great question. They are not all deep thoughts, in reality they are pretty shallow thoughts but that does not supress my need to know some answers, to here it goes.
What is with those coffee stirer sticks? Seriously, WTF? Do they actually stir anything? Everytime I see those stupid hard plastic little sticks I wonder who is the genius behind this product? Really I think he is a genius, not because he invented this stupid little stick, but because he convinced the world that we need these things to stir our coffee, that's just genius in my book. I don't think they work, I have used them and by the time I get my sugar stirred into my coffee I have made a huge trench in the bottom of my styrofoam coffee cup that threatens the structural integrity of cup to let scalding hot coffee pour out and scald my tender thighs. I would then have to sue McDonalds like the old lady did many years ago. So anyway if anyone knows who invented this device please let me know, I might one day decided to invent some stupid little thing like the stir stick and I would like to know who to thank for my inspiration when I am rich and famous.
Ok now this makes me wonder why is coffee served so hot? What is the purpose of it being so hot? I guess if I was a felon doing hard time in prison I might welcome coffee so hot that I could poor it on the steel bars that had me caged in and make my escape, but otherwise I just don't understand why the average Joe needs and extraordinary hot cup of Joe. OK, I think I might have the answer to this one, after miles and miles of thinking this through the answer I came up with is this, it's to burn your taste buds so badly that you won't have any idea that the food you are about to eat has the same taste and consistency of a cardboard box. I know you are probably thinking I am crazy, You think to yourself I love those fast food chains, I can't seem to get enough, the food is great, it's fast, and economical. Ok, I understand where you are coming from, I too like those fast food chains, yes, I eat there on occasion, and I enjoy a big mac or french fries, but my taste buds have been burned. They have not just been burned once or twice, no they have been burned several times. My taste buds now have scar tissue that has built up so bad that it is hard to tell gourmet food from a fast food burger. Don't believe me, why else would these chains being selling billions of burgers that taste like cardboard? I just cannot think of any other reason, if any of you can please feel free to post an answer in the comments.
Speaking of inventions (see the third paragraph), my daughter and I invented a driving game many years ago. I always forget about the game as soon as I get home but we have lots of fun playing the game while traveling. I have often thought of marketing the game and seeing if I can make my millions, but I have a few worries. You see this game may upset a few people. My daughter and I call this game road kill bingo. We make little cards that have animals that are relative to the area we are traveling through, for instance we could not use an armadillo except for traveling through Texas and Oklahoma, or tarantulas for for desert states etc. Now while traveling we try to idenify any road kill and the first person to spot it will then be able to mark off the spot on their bingo card. The first person to fill out their card completely wins the game. I really don't know if I could make any money off of this game, but it is still a fun game to play while traveling. So what do you think of my invented game?
Now I am going to let you in on another deep thought of mine, and you thought I couldn't have come up with anymore after debating those first ones, but it was a long drive home, and I was bored. So here it goes. What genius decided to make the ramps going on and off the freeway in the opposite direction that you are intending to go. I admit that not all of the ramps are this way, but believe me I ran into a few like this and I just couldn't help but wonder why? What is the point in this, and even better why don't they give you much warning? Many times I needed to turn left to go right, or right to go left, why? Why can't I just go left if I want to turn left, and why not go right if I want to turn right? Why do I have to make a huge circle to get almost exactly where I started out at? I wonder if some person isn't taping people driving down these freeways and laughing his ass off when people get confused about which direction they need to turn to get to the place they need to go. The worst part about all of this is that you get a sign stating that you need to make a right hand turn to go to your left a block before you actually have to make the turn. if you have ever driven a huge SUV during rush hour traffic then you know that it is not an easy maneuver to pull off. I am lucky though as I live in a state that has very friendly people, many of these people were very helpful and honked to let me know that they had an inch clearing between them and the car in front of them and that I should try to fill that void with my 18 foot SUV, and then after I filled that void they then gave me a one fingered wave signaling their approval of my driving skills. I know that if it had not been for those generous people I could have driven miles out of my way trying to get in the right lane for my left hand turn. If anyone knows who or why engineered the freeways this way, I would really like to know who he is so that I may show him some of the generosity that my fellow travelers have shown me.
Ok people, that is all for my deep thoughts, I eventually remembered the camera on my phone and occupied my time with that for awhile. I guess this would be a great spot for a disclaimer so here it is. Warning the hub you have just read may give you nightmares, gas, a headache, paralysis, intestinal blockage, neurosis, psoriasis, anal leakage, explosive diarrhea, and you may require therapy. You should have read this disclaimer first but obviously you did not because the guy the same guy who is filming people on the freeway is filming you too and he knows that you read the content of this hub first so do not contact me if you experience any of the symptoms mentioned above, as it's your own damn fault. Now have a great day!
