The "how come..." thread

This is the thread where we ponder things... whether they are unanswerable questions, simple insecurities, or paradoxes that cannot be explained. I'll start with an example:

How come my mind is most active right before I fall asleep? I get my greatest ideas then and I remember things that I had forgotten durring the day.

You don't nessecarily have to answer someone else's question, but you can take a stab at it and try to explain it if you want. And just for kicks, try to make every question star with "how come..."

Go.

How come you can recall with crystal clarity the most stupidly embarrassing things of your life, dating back to almost infancy, but you absolutely can't recall vitally important stuff that's relevant to the here-and-now?

Yeah, and also tiny insignifigant things that don't matter you remember really well.

I actually might have an answer to this one:
You're all sweaty, so when you get inside, you get cold and want to take a hot shower. It happens to me too.
 
How come there are NO furry people that live in my state? I've seriously never met anyone from New Mexico...

I go through the same exact thing. My theory is that when you're up and active, you have all the other things going on to deal with. When you're in bed, your mind is resting, giving way for your imagination to take over.
Question though-Do you have AD(H)D? I've always wondered if it had to do with that.

Here's one- How come I can't figure out the logical meaning behind the phrase "how come". Serious question, by the way. Just occurred to me that while I know what the phrase means obviously, I can't comprehend why it means what it means.

Why do people crave life so much?
Whats making it so worth living?
Why were we put on this earth, all we do is kill, mate, die, and the chain goes on.
Is there really a god, or do we all just go into nothingness, like deleting a computer program?

Why do macs only have one mouse button, when most programs require two?

ARG. Sick of hearing this. Macs are compatable with any mouse in the world. Moving on. ¬..¬

Why is software so damn expensive?

You keep hearing it because it always has and still is inconvenient. I shouldn't have to carry a mouse with me to make my computer work efficiently. With desktops it's no big deal, but I'd rather my laptop have all the buttons it needs. And this was brought up in the first place because it's something I've been fighting with all night in Photoshop.

Why does Apple refuse to add a button it should have had from the start?


Answer: I believe software is expensive because people have always forked over the money for it. No need to drop the price when it's still selling. Thought someone who knows more about economy and stuff would probably be more qualified to answer this than me.



Another question: Why does it hurt when I pee?

Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

My freezer has a light....but my fridge doesn't....

How come some dumb jackass gets to decide what is right and what is wrong?
Also, how come there is an economy? I mean why can't people just be rewarded with food or technology?

STDs suck I would say...

What is the significance behind the dreams people have on a daily (or not so daily) basis? Why is it that some people can control themselves in their dreams and others can't?

You see, the world is black and white. Some people have realized this and taken it upon themselves to share their righteous ideals with the world. God bless them.

A bartering economy is still an economy. As great as your idea would be, I theorize that whoever controlled the food and technology would take over.
