Lets see....

Whats does spam stand for? (yes I mean the odd looking food product.. well i think its food) special processed animal meat?

Why is a bakers dozen more then a regular dozen?

Why do people drink caffeine free soda doesnt it defeat the point or decaffeinated coffee for that matter?

Why does a cd cost 16.99 when you can make a cd for 50cents?


All my questions great and wonderful flea... and anyone else.

Spam stands for "spiced ham", I do believe.

A baker's dozen was what bakers used to give out as deals. If you bought a dozen muffins, they'd throw in one more. That's where the term "baker's dozen" comes from.

Some people like coffee and soda for the taste.

You might be able to make a CD for 50 cents, but recording the music that goes on the CD can cost millions of dollars. And do you think the artists work for free?

yes but they also sell 50 million cd's plus promotions, plus tours. I don't feel bad if they make a few million less dollars a year. They aren't starving. Oh well free music sounds just as good as the more expensive sort.

Did enjoy the other answers though thanks.

Pricing is also up to the retailers...the artists don't get all of the money, obviously. Also, packaging and production of the little booklets and such cost money.
I have a burner but prefer to buy cds because I like the professional look for my cd wallets and why not support the artists?

Um, not everyone does, obviously. No one has universal popularity, too many different people with different views, feelings, and thoughts. This can be credited to both social differences and biological differences.

Flea, that answer was very diplomatic. Very true, but very diplomatic. My answer would have been lack of taste. /tongue.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":P" border="0" alt="tongue.gif" />

Here are some silly questions:

When dog food is new and improved tasting, who tests it?

Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

Why do caretaker and caregiver mean the same thing?

Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

Why don't you ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

Oh wise and wonderful Flea...

If we say "A Penny For Your Thoughts" and we put our "Two Cents" in, what happens to the other penny?

Very easy. You are paying them a penny for their thoughts, so they are up a penny. They then give their two cents so you actually end up with a penny as a tip for being so kind as to ask what they have in mind.

Because the attendants hate you and want you to suffer. And they know onions are the best path with which to accomplish this.
