Come on over to Tom's House for the lighter side of Tolkien Fandom. Remember Tom's House is both powerful and innocent, so keep it clean and nice.

Because otherwise, she'd be forced to mentally confront her own inadequacies.

Because it thinks you like the 'maximise noise'. :P

Why does the week seem so long, and the weekends so short?

Because of an anti-schoolwork gene placed in us years ago by Cleopatra's biochemists (they were a LOT more advanced than we give them credit for). It was supposed to be an anti-housework gene that would cause all the other women to rise up against men and take over the world, but the vagaries of language defeated the plan, and Augustus happened before they could try again.

Why do women grow up like their mothers?

Because of the alien control signals being beamed at us from Charon. They're pretty weak by the time they get here, but they affect some of us more than others. :shock: Caffeine helps block the signal.

Why do people think drumbeats so loud they cause the car to visibly oscillate are cool?

Because they're trying to make up for the uncoolness of their deafness which is settling in.

Why do people think that increasing the volume of what they're saying makes it more persuasive and credible? :roll:

Because she's supposed to be eating and then leaving quickly for guitar lessons. :P She might just hop on for a second, though...

Because you're simply deluding yourself that you can't draw when, in fact, you can. :P
