Hey Dream Street Rose, are there any trees like this where you live ? I always found them very beautiful.

This is from an "email" !!! 06/19/2008

Spread the Stupidity



Only in Canada.....do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.


Only in Canada.....do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.


Only in Canada...do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.


Only in Canada.....do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.


Only in Canada .....do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.




Only in Canada. .....do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.


EVER WONDER ...


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


Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?


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


Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?


Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?



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


Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?


Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?


Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?


Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?


Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?


You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!


Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?


Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?


If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Jesse J: Count the good ol' USA right up there with the first few! It always cracks me up when people fighting their weight go to In-and-Out Burger for the triple Cheeseburger and fries, or a huge mound of Chinese food or 10,000 calories worth of Mexican food, but God help them if they had a REGULAR COKE! The others are priceless, too...thanks for the guffaws! (I do not have a mellifluous, tinkly little laugh - it's more like a snort or a guffaw...so much for ladylike responses!) SherylKat

Drug stores don't sell tobacco products here in Ontario and stores that do have to have them behind a wall of lift up doors for each shelf so they aren't visible to the customers. there are small labels on the doors designating the brand of cigarette etc...Proof of age is required for everyone and the clerk must ask regardless of it being obvious that the person is over 18..
But I do have to walk to the back to get a prescription!
lol

I'm a former smoker ("clean" for almost 20 years ago), so I'm not 100 percent sure, but I don't think we here in California sell tobacco products at least at the drug store I frequent...HOWEVER, in the grocery stores, the ciggies are locked up and you have to show proof of age. Great new ad on tv (responding to the movies' new onslaught of smoking on the big screen) shows a very thin sick old man hooked up to an oxygen machine and in a wheelchair. All that's said is, "If you thinking smoking is sexy, take a look at me..." I have a next-door neighbor dying a slow death (COPD, smoked 1-1/2 packs of unfiltered Camels a day until a couple of months ago) and she's still in denial - SORRY! Didn't mean for this to be a sermon! I sure hated being preached to when I was a smoker!

And yes, I have to walk a fer piece to get my drugs, too - as a person who lives alone, that's NOT fun when you're sick and need those antibiotics!

Be sure to keep slugging down those diet Cokes, everybody - we can't afford those extra calories!

Ok, gotta address this - I've gotten the same email, only substitute "Only in America" for "Only in Canada". This one's been around for a long time.

Cigarettes or no, the reason the pharmacy is way in the back at the drug store is the same reason milk is way in the back at the grocery store - so the customers have to walk past, and be tempted by, all the stuff on the end caps and aisles en route to the back. It's called marketing. Try ordering your drugs from pharmacies that deliver to your door or have a drive-up window.

Speaking of drive-ups, those Braille ATMs - see http://www.straightdope.com/columns/...eller-machines for the longer answer. Short answer: Americans with Disabilities Act. This one's been around since the early 90s.

The mismatched hotdogs and hamburgers? Same basic reason as the pharmacy in the back. The merchants want you to buy more hotdogs or hamburgers to match. I find it simply easier to do without - eat either a naked hotdog or one wrapped in plain bread.

Chaining pens to counters goes back to monks chaining incunabula (fancy word for illuminated manuscripts) to desks - to keep some idiot from walking off with it absentmindedly (admittedly it's harder to lug away a fair-sized book in contrast to waltzing off with a ballpoint.) The doors are open to welcome you and your money inside (though I can't say I ever remember doors to our banks here ever flung open wide except maybe for a grand opening. They pretty much stay closed like any other business' door.

Let's see ... off the top of my head:

all needles come prepackaged sterilized these days in most places in the world;

planes made of black box material would never get off the ground (too heavy) - and "black" boxes these days are more often than not orange.

airplane "terminal" - should be, and originally was, "terminus" end point, as in destination (where you arrived at the end of your journey.)

apartments aren't "stuck together" - funny enough, the buildings are deliberately designed that way: an apartment is a self-contained housing unit that occupies only A PART of a building. And is a flat, flat?

sheep don't shrink in the rain because they're made of flesh; wool only shrinks when it's woven - has to be processed for any shrinkage to occur, and I don't know where in the world it rains HOT. Steamy, maybe. The natural lanolin in sheep's wool also helps.

possibly Noah DID swat two mosquitos - he just missed several hundred more, lol.

rush hour is named for all the folks RUSHING to get home at the same time and causing a bottleneck and TA-DA! slow traffic.

the man who invests all your money may be a broker, or investment banker, but most likely is a salesperson (if not "the man in the mirror" for self-directed accounts.) One explanation of the word broker: it is believed to derive from an earlier Anglo-Norman word for a business deal, "broucour."
The origin of this meaning seems to come through a word meaning a gift made at the conclusion of a business deal, from an Arabic word for blessing, "barka" or "baraka." This word is related to other Semitic words for blessing. For example, the word "Baruch," ("blessed") initiates most Hebrew blessings.

Not all lemon juice is artificial, and not all lemon-scented dish liquid uses fresh lemons.

Mouse-flavored cat food? Probably out there as a specialty (does it taste like chicken?)

"Practice" has numerous meanings; in this case it's the exercise of an occupation or profession, not repetition to pefect a skill.

Re "psychic wins lottery" - would you advertise you were a psychic if you won? Can you imagine the nutcases that would be demanding you tell them the Mega Millions numbers for tonight's draw? Heck, if I'm lucky enough to win $20 I keep my trap shut, thank you very much.

The hair/skin/sunlight thing? Answer from straight-dope: "Sun darkens skin because it triggers the production of melanin, a brownish-black pigment that helps filter out harmful ultraviolet rays. It lightens hair because the UV light triggers the breakdown of these selfsame melanin molecules into simpler and evidently less colorful compounds." Got that?

The eye/open mouth thing? Don't do it myself; seldom use mascara these days. Supposedly an open mouth keeps the eye from blinking (nah). Perhaps one goes slack-jawed with concentration?

Did I miss any?
