    Yes. 10,000 years ago it was just a thickheaded variety of grass.

    Yes, for only the best multi-tasking doctors can use their feet for surgery and have their hands free to make popcorn.

    Is having a Ph.D. the first step towards getting a Ph.C. then Ph.B. and then the ultimate Ph.A.?

    Yes, Elvis's most famous song, Blue Suede Shoes, deserves to be called a masterpiece.

    No. I tried whisky once. The resulting acute attack of depression had me never trying it again.

    Yes is a double edge answer because terrorists, criminals, and anarchists probably ask that question with the same zeal as those who think their version of better is beneficial.

    If all nuclear weapons had to be started like a gas lawn mower would armageddon be less likely to happen?

    Images of a frustrated (usually *superbly patient*) uncle spinning the mower round and round before THROWING it comes to mind.

    Yes, at least for me. You can always put on another layer.

    If it is 120F (50C), does it matter if it is a dry heat?

    Of course! If it's too dry, you need to be basted regularly or you'll come out all tough and chewy.

    Is ham an appropriate Thanksgiving meal?

    Multi-tradition sandwiches usually fail for many reasons such as: it probably contains gluten, it is an unknown food to some, and for others it throw tradition out the window with no redemption for eternity. Plus ham on bread that represents being humble is somewhat contradictory but what do I know?

    Should all ice cream sandwiches be recalled because they always leave off the mustard?

    No, I think an ice cream sandwiches with mustard are best forgotten, just like any bad memory.

    Would you like an ice cream breakfast sandwich?

    Yes but if you get one then all the on-line users will have to have one too. That is 745 at the moment so someone needs to go to the store.

    Are you near a grocery store?

    Yes, for certain definitions of near.

    Do you know where the nearest emergency exit is to you?

    Yes, but the warden has the only key.

    Since all buildings are required to have smoke detectors, don't smoke houses make a lot of noise?

    Yes but muffled by the smoke.
    Would lichens make good forest smoke detectors if GM to change colour?

    No you can liken a lichen to a smoke detector, but if a tree burns in the forest and no one is there to see it change color, is it really a good smoke detector?

    Does that make sense?

    No, because a tree with no one to see it would be mind independent reality and is therefore meaningless.

    Does smoked sausage set off smoke detectors as soon as you open the package?

    No that happens when you light it, even if you don't inhale.
    Was there a song featuring "life is just a string of sausages/ a tail of misleading prophesies" ?

    Yes, by France's greatest singer, physician, and prophet Nostradamus who predicted his hit would top the charts but was wrong this one time in his predictions.

    Does Canada owe everyone an apology for speaking French when clearly they are not from France?

    Yes, that's the reason us United Statesians abandoned English English.

    Yes, that language will be gibberish.

    On Linked-In, should you be able to list "technobabble" as one of the languages you know?

    Of course not! The ancient secrets of tech and coding should only be revealed to the select who have shown themselves worthy in dark bastions of dimly candle lite IT rooms of olde.

    Do you feel wary when you have given the secret handshake to the new tech person and they fail to acknowledge back?
