What Do I Have In Mind?

I had an interesting English teacher when I was 13. She was very strict when it came to giving homework and exercises. But, her method of teaching was so cool and engaging. I enjoyed her classes very much. So, one day she told us that when she was just a little girl, she always asked ‘witty’ questions like “Do grasshoppers close their eyes when they sleep?”. Her family and teachers would always get a headache trying to answer those questions.

When she told the class about that habit of hers, I told myself, “Hey, I always do that, too!”

Yeah, I always asked that kind of questions, too. I still do now. But I never troubled my family or my teachers with those questions. I only asked myself.

So, these are some of the questions that I used to and always ask:

6 years old: "when we eat and drink, will the food and water go down straight to our knees?"

Current status: answered

9 years old: "why do women get pregnant after they got married?"

Current status: answered

12 years old: "why do cats enjoy licking each other’s butt?"

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

13 years old: "how did the first person in the world to cut his hair know that cutting hair will not hurt him?" (I mean, the hair was a part of his body)

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

14 years old: "how did women from the Stone Age know that blood which came out from their vagina was not caused by an injury or internal bleeding?"

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

15 years old: "how did women from the Stone Age (again) know that when their stomach was getting bigger after having sex, it wasn’t a disease?"

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

16 years old: "why can’t we open our eyes while sneezing?"

Current status: answered

17 years old: "how did people from different places, and had different languages, translate and understand each other’s language when they first met?" (Imagine that they were the first people in the world to encounter a new language. No books to refer to, nobody to help them)

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

20 years old: "why do policemen still want to say “Hey! Stop running!” or, “Let her go!” or, “Drop your guns!” to criminals when they know that they (the criminals) will never listen to a word they say?"

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

21 years old until now: " Who first created all the languages that exist in the world now? Who first invented all the words that can be found and pronounced in all those languages? I mean, whatever we are saying, like ‘Friend’ in English, ‘Kawan’ in Malay, ‘Tomodachi’ in Japanese, ‘Dost’ in Hindi, and ‘Pengyou’ in Mandarin, who first suggested them? How did they know that they should be ‘pronounced’ that way?" (do you get me?)

Current status: still waiting for the answer from the moon

p/s: I enjoy playing with my own mind (^ . ^) V

huh the 9 years old question I guess I have the answer when I was just ten hehe :P

the 16 years old question, I knew just know because my mother told me, if we sneeze with the open eyes, perhaps boleh tersembul bijik mate tuh!!

yeah, I gotcha! but yeah, same as you, IDK, and hope that either moon/stars or maybe sun will answer those questions :)

Igniz June 18, 2009 at 11:15 PM  

ina: hopefully:)

"how did women from the Stone Age (again) know that when their stomach was getting bigger after having sex, it wasn’t a disease?"

---interesting. i'd also like to know how men and women at that time knew how to even have sex. time tuh..hollywood tadak lg

Igniz June 19, 2009 at 12:09 AM  

iena: for your question, i once asked that too..but I got the answer right away..instinct with trial and error:P

Judiene June 19, 2009 at 1:11 AM  

hey igniz,
can i know da answer for da 16-years-old question??
i think i did once in a while sneezing wif my eyes open...
i think i did..
i think!
hehehe!!

anisizatyA.J June 19, 2009 at 1:17 AM  

soalan 14 yrs old tu..ive wondered then i pk lak what did they use like mase tu mesti takde tampons/kotex..hehe..and utk first woman n man have sex tu kan adam n eve so mesti god showed them kot..hehe

Igniz June 19, 2009 at 9:37 AM  

judiene: i can't exactly remember why..but if i'm not mistaken, it has got something to do with the nerve (or was it neuron?)..anyway, it's science..ur eyes will automatically close every time u sneeze..and it's impossible to open ur eyes while doing it..u sure u sneezed with ur eyes open, once? sure that wasnt a yawn?:P

anisizaty: about adam n eve, i know that..but the stone age people was a different type of people..they were soooo primitive...i think it's instinct..yg pasal period tu, diorg mesti ada sumbat something kot...:P

Niji June 19, 2009 at 8:39 PM  

About how men and women at that time knew how to have sex..
I think god gave them a dream...
similar to wet dreams that boys have to go through during puberty?
Anyway Igniz, interesting.. questions... you have there... You really like to think outside the box, don't you? I can see that your way of thinking have become more logical.

Igniz June 19, 2009 at 10:43 PM  

niji: i just love thinking..thats all:)

a sinner June 20, 2009 at 3:27 AM  

Haha, the last question tu, memang I have always (and I mean ALWAYS) thought about.

Igniz June 20, 2009 at 11:34 AM  

sinner: that makes us two:)

12 years old: "why do cats enjoy licking each other’s butt?"

hahaha, I've been wondering about that too. But did you notice that cats spend so much time grooming? Do you know that it actually helps cats cope with confrontation and embarrassment. Let say something embarrassed happen to a cat, the 1st thing they gonna do is to casually lick themselves, ala2 pretend the whole things didn't happened in the first place

Igniz June 20, 2009 at 1:20 PM  

sha: i don't know about the facts on confrontation and embarrassment, but i heard kucing punye memori hanya bertahan selama 30 minit je:P

Nadia June 20, 2009 at 2:21 PM  

hey. cool okeh, igniz! i rasa lah kan utk soalan 15 years old tuh, die redha je kot perot die besa. kunun kunun redha ada penyakit n akan mati ta lama lagih. lepas 9 bulan, mase na deliver tuh tibe tibe keluar baby. ha. org tengok sume sebarkan & tao la perot besar ade baby dalam tuh. ngee! pandai pandai jeh. :p

Igniz June 20, 2009 at 3:53 PM  

nadya: pandainye:) em, logic jugak ur teori tu..tak penah tepikir lak..tapi ada betulnya..:P

SyAhiRah LaLAla June 26, 2009 at 6:14 AM  

ur 21-years-old's question is captivating. i might want to ask my sociolinguistics lecturer of that. u might ask urs too. i think they are not going to provide us with the exact name but maybe certain tribe ke might be responsible for that, who knows kan. interesting. well done,,Igniz! :)

Igniz June 26, 2009 at 8:21 AM  

syahirah: boleh try ni. thanks for the idea:)

Ebb June 29, 2009 at 6:02 PM  

6: not licking. sniffing. look closely. but if to oneself, yes they do licking their own butt. it's called cleaning thyself. lol.

14: observation. well you did say women.

17: sign language to observation to testing to make it relevant to both parties. urm..like the char in The 23th Warrior? or explanation about the genetic eve on BBC?

20: for ethics purposes. and they are legally allowed to almost do whatever they want after they say that and no one listens.

Igniz June 29, 2009 at 7:38 PM  

ebb: i saw they licked their own butt. i saw they sniffed each other's butt. and i also saw trillion times they licked each other's butt.hahaXD

the rest of the answers: make sense. i can agree with that. thanks:)
