Points to ponder......

Over the years things have changed but you'll be surprised that in many cases, they've gone back to the a sense. So, here I go, along with my queries.

 * If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?

 * Which letter is silent in the word "Scent", the 's' or the 'c'?

 * Do twins ever realise that one of them is unplanned?

 * Why is the letter 'W', in English, called double U? Shouldn't it be double V?

 * The word "Swims" upside down is still "Swims".

 * Intentionally losing a game of rock, paper, scissors is just as hard as trying to win.

 * 100 years ago, everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today everyone has cars and
    only the rich own horses.

 * Your future self is watching you right now through memories.

 * The doctors that told Stephen Hawking he had two years to live in '53 are probably dead.

 * If you replace "W" with "T" in "What, where and when", you get the answer to each of them.

 * Many animals probably need glasses but nobody knows it.

 * If you rip a hole in a net, there are actually fewer holes in it than there were before.

 * If 2/2/22 falls on a Tuesday, we'll just call it "2's Day".
    (It does fall on a Tuesday).


Last year, this date, I was at Thiruvananthapuram in connection with the Vice President's day with the PN Panicker Foundation. Meanwhile, didn't know that mom was progressively sinking!
