watched Disney's Pocahontas movie at the theater when it came out years ago, where I think Mel Gibosn voiced the englishman John Smith that Pocahontas supposedly saved from her father Chief Powhatan...and some dipstick dad there with his kids got up from the movie and said, "you'd think they could have come up with a better name for him than John Smith" What the ??? And that man procreated! Scary!

LOL. Was watching something last week and a bunch of british chicks were having a conversation with a native american woman. They asked the native american woman what her nationality was and she said "native american". One british chick turned to another british chick and said, in her cockneyed accent "I don't think we have those in London, do we?" LOL. I about died. The native american woman went on to explain what the dynamic was between native americans and brits and the british chick said "how have I never heard of this?" People never cease to amaze me.

Happy Birthday Mithras; and it's always on December 25th. Tradition; tradition......or as Sam says, "Give me that old time religion."

What the? Is this like those man-on-the-street interviews where they ask questions like "what's the capitol of Chicago?"

In my opinion this question is second only to 1994s classic "Do the turnpike toll booth employees get a lot of paper cuts when they hand out the toll cards?"

This is the most MORONIC question of ALL TIME!! LJ you've out done yourselves this time. I'm now even more convinced that no one submits these questions that they are made up by someone that is either very drunk or very high!!. Not even right wing Republicans are that stupid. Now do the rest of you people understand what I've been ranting about? This section is a complete waste of time and energy!!

this reminds me of the new calender some people would like to change to. That calender might have Christmas always fall on a Sunday. I like the idea but I wouldn't want my birthday to always fall on a Saturday, then I would have to have a party every year.

Q: Why are fire engines red?

A: Because books are read too. Two times two is four. Four times three is twelve. There are 12 inches on a ruler. Queen Elizabeth was a ruler. Queen Elizabeth was also a ship. Ships sail the ocean. Fish live in the ocean. Fish have fins. The Fins fought the Russians. Russians wear red, and fire engines are always rushin'.

Where does the sun go at night?

Who is on First?

How much wood can a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

If a tree falls over in the forest with no-one around, does it count against my carbon credits?

Is it true that Texas doesn't fall into the Gulf because Oklahoma sucks?

Indeed. Now it is time to have fun. I'm going to come up with a bunch of really dumb questions and submit them to Sound Off.

It's entirely possible a child asked this question, in which case no question is stupid.

Hey, LJWorld! I’ve got your Sound Off question ready for May. “Is Cinco de Mayo going to be on May 5th this year?” If you need a few more questions, then you can ask, “Why is water wet?” Maybe try “Why is the sky blue?” I might need to revisit this Sound Off closer to December in case I forget that Christmas is not always on Sundays. Thanks for the laugh!

The fact that this question was even asked...

And the fact that this question was even published...

Is why this country has all the problems it has. End of story!!!

At first glance I thought my eyes were deceiving me. Then I decided I hadn't had enough coffee yet. But then.... WTH??? Slow news day, or the JW is picking on less-than-dim-lightbulb-bright folks. ;~)

Why didn't the LJW reveal who they consulted for the answer? Hmm, I smell a conspiracy, here.

If a plane crashes on the U.S./Canadian border, where do they bury the survivors?

Who is buried in Grant's Tomb? What color is the White House? What country invented Mexican food? Where is the Great Wall of China? What is gold made out of?

There I just gave you the next 4 weeks worth of questions.

Really. Someone should take a look at a perpetual calender.

Christmas is on a Sunday in only G and M years.

That is, in 1904, 1910, 1921, 1927, 1932, 1938, 1949, 1955, 1960, 1966, 1977, 1983, 1988, 1994, 2005, 2011, 2016, 2022, 2033, 2039, 2044, 2050, 2061, 2067, 2072, 2078, 2089, and 2095.

From 1901 to 2100, those are the years that Christmas is on a Sunday.
