Tomatoes are a fruit. It's a fact and not a secret one at that.

1. no, as it doesn't get any gas into its digestive system, and therefore it can't fart or burp, all nurtriants and waste go in and out of the umbilicale cord.
2. thats not a countdown, it tells you the edition of the book, if you have a book with one in it, then you have one of the books that was first out of the printing press. and therefore i could be quite valubale.
3. its heads up, because your looking at where it came from/going to.
4. well obviosuly the person who doesn't want you to walk on the grass puts it there.
5. french fries arn't considered vegetables as all the nutriants have been 'cooked' out of them.
6. yes you can. nativate americans used to burn the ear wax out of there ear, much like a candel.
7. it is foggy because the clouds are low in the atmosphere, so if its foggy, then its obviously cloudy.
6. no, your ment to breath in your nose and out your mouth, you can only breath out of one not both, i beleive there is a valve.
7. marbles used to be made of marble, but now they are mostly made of glass.
8. electricity doesn't technicaly come from just electrons. the electrons most be free moveing, a charge is passed along all free moving electrons and this is how electricity is made. and thats just being plain stupid

A question is not defined as something that has an answer. As such the non-existence of an answer to a question does not stop it being a question at all.

Edit: In the spirit of debunking most of these:
QUOTE(Abhimanyu @ Mar 16 2006, 12:12 AM)
    * If your eyes are crossed, do your tears fall straight?
What direction do they normally fall in? Besides, the tear ducts are not affected by the direction of the eye balls.
    * Do you wake up or open your eyes first?
You wake up, generally.
    * What is the point in saying "may I ask" and then follow it up with a question?
Because people are stupid.
    * Is it possible to be allergic to water?
If you were then you would not survive to be born, would you? Humans are a large percentage water, after all.
    * Why do cats like to dig their paws into something before they lay down on it?
Presumably to make sure that what they're about to lie down on won't move and attack them.
    * Why does the Easter bunny carry eggs? Rabbits don't lay eggs.
The question should be "Why is the creature that carries eggs at Easter a rabbit?". Eggs are universally a symbol of new life - which is the theme of Easter. Gods know why it's a freakin' rabbit that's carrying the things, though.
    * How come lotion is colored, but when you put it on, it doesn't turn your skin that color?
A little phenomenon known as concentration. Look it up one day.
    * Are there pink lemons that make pink lemonade?
Aren't they grapefruits? To be honest I have no idea as I never drink the stuff..
    * If someone's peeing and halfway through they die, would they keep pissing or stop?
Unlikely. There's no reason why muscles (not that one, at least) would contract as you die.
    * If you swallow a burp does it turn into a fart?
Possible, but think about where that burp just came from and where it goes when you swallow it...
    * Why do bullies always ask "what’s your problem" when they're obviously not going to solve it?
Because bullies are even more stupid than the aforementioned generalisation of "people". If they were intelligent they are unlikely to be bullies.
    * Can you get cornered in a round room?
Obviously not. Being cornered has the requirement of being in a corner - which a round room, by definition, does not have.
    * How come we say 'It's colder than hell outside' when isn't it realistically always colder than hell since hell is supposed to be fire and brimstone?
Who says that? I've never done so...
    * Wouldn't it be smart to make the sticky stuff on envelopes taste like chocolate?
So people would get addicted to licking envelopes? Think about the number of paper cuts people would get on their tongues & lips!
    * Why is toilet bowl cleaning liquid only blue?
It.. isn't.... Mine's yellow...
    * Why do companies offer you "free gifts?" Since when has a gift NOT been free?
For the same reason that they say "New & Improved", presumably - if something is new, then it cannot be improved: being new implies that there is nothing that came before it, while being improved implies that it is better than whatever came before it.
    * If something "goes without saying," why do people still say it?
Again, people are stupid. End of story.

there is a valve at the back of your mouth, at the top of your windpipe, which controls which opening is open, weather things go down to your lungs or stomachs, it is pretty much always closed so that air goes down your windpipe and down to your lungs, so even with food in your mouth, air will still go down. the pipe which leads down to your stomach is only open when you swollow and is forced open by your tongue which rises to the roof of your mouth when you swallow.

and btw a stuffy nose is caused by an infection that gets into the blood vessels in your nose and causes them to swell, and then the nessal passages become smaller and 'snot' then appears to block your nose, when it doesn't msn_wink.gif

The only reason you maty appear to be btreathing out of BOTH instruments would be that your simply Breathing out your nose and with a mouth full of air, contraction yolur cheek muscles to push the air out your mouth also ... giving the illusion that your breathing out both....
