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

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

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?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right?" Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot?"

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

1. cause it is sooo hard to get up

2. Cause how can you check 4 billion stars?

3. natural reaction is too duck.

4. Cause they don't want to have a headache when they hit something at ramming speed?

5. Well some of the stuff in my fridge might have re-produced you never know.

Yeah, but if the dumbMadMadMadMad with the gun misses, you'd be alive to react (unless he hit something explosive right next to you). And the question was "Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?" If he can't die by getting shot, a revolver being tossed his way isn't doing to do any greater harm.

I'll stop now. ugh

Not unless you have enough visual acuity to see the bullet moving towards you. Razz

Incase we pressed too lightly the first time

The paint being wet is instantly verifiable, the amount of stars isn't

Not too sure on 'superman lore' but I'd assume the bullet stopping doesn't involve conscious thought, but the ducking does?

So they don't die before they've completed their suicide mission

They forgot the last time they checked, plus it's habit forming - you connect 'hungry' with 'going to the fridge' whether it's empty or not.

It was probably stuck in the carpet, once pulled up it could be vacuumed up.

Bugs are small

Because it's socially ingrained to give a polite response to an apology

Sod's/Murphy's Law. Additionally there's probably a lot of objects that could be easily knocked off on a table unless it's kept neat.

Because women are marginalised in society

Because when we're cold we want to be hot and when we're hot we want to be cold, and those feelings take priority over being able to remember how you felt when you were too hot, while you're currently feeling too cold.

...Oh they were rhetorical Razz

Sorry but those are really all quite crap. Soon as you read them the answer is obvious.

1/10 for effort of clicking the post button.

Because we can take a teeny tiny bit of pain like that without whining endlessly? I currently have a neat set of parallel lines which were cut into my hand by a high tech machine.

It happenned by my saving the machine from suffering thousands of pounds worth of damage. Not only did I get to joke that healing is cheaper, I impressed a hot chick in the process. That is what I call okay. Not bleeding is for wusses.
