Heheh Questions
« on: February 06, 2017, 05:01:33 PM »
Why is it that when you transport something by car it is called shipment, but when you transport something by ship it's called cargo?

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

If a firefighter fights fire and a crime fighter fights crime, what does a freedom fighter fight?

Is it OK to use the AM radio after noon?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

Why is abbreviated such a long word?

Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Why is it called a parkway when you drive on it and a driveway when you park on it?

A wood chuck would chuck all the wood that a wood chuck could chuck.
Argue your limitations and sure enough, they're yours.

Why does a building raised by fire burn down?

Oops, it should be "razed", it's a verbal joke ennit!

Hm. This needs souring. Does it need souring? Yes, it does. It shalt be His Divine Pleasure to do His Divine best.  >:(

Why is it that when you transport something by car it is called shipment, but when you transport something by ship it's called cargo?
It's cargo in a car also. And shipment on a ship. The words mean different things, do they not? Cargo is basically stuff being moved from place to place by some mode of transport. A shipment is specific stuff going to a recipient regardless of whether it's currently in freight. Yes?

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
Is contract (Employment, car sales, what have you) the opposite of protract (make longer)?

Also, anti- is often a better prefix for the opposite of pro.

Quote
If a firefighter fights fire and a crime fighter fights crime, what does a freedom fighter fight?
Typically? Freedom. Well, someone else's freedom.

Quote
Is it OK to use the AM radio after noon?
Yes, Amplitude Modulation does not care about the time of day. I've worked with digital information transfer using AM, by the way. Fascinating stuff.

Quote
If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?
Oil-oil, I suspect... At least partly. What isn't made of that in this day and age?

If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?
They can be quizzical as well.

Quote
Why is abbreviated such a long word?
Means "made more brief." That's even longer.

Quote
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
Keep their contents separated by thin walls.
In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.
