Why is
 
A softball called a softball when it's not even soft:confused:

Why do you drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?
Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
If nothing ever sticks to Teflon, how do they make Teflon stick to the pan?
Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?
Why is brassiere singular and panties plural?
If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?

Why do you drive on a parkway and park in a driveway?
Parkway is a thorough fare, Drive way is the entrance from a drive

Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
Because Ph was how F was spelled in English. F was a french and german used letter

Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
Because it is a state and they are Inter-state, federally funded roads

If nothing ever sticks to Teflon, how do they make Teflon stick to the pan?
Sand blasting, Teflon primer then heat

Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of the drive-up ATM?

because blind people get rides to the ATM..they dont just wonder around till they bump into one

Why is brassiere singular and panties plural?
PANTY is the word :) It is the shortening of Pantaloon,which was what Womens under garments were called. Panties would be more than 1 panty

If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors?
To mop and restock


To the OP

Because it is tossed softly in comparison to a throw :)

Re: Braille on drive-up ATMs -- probably cheaper to re-use the molds for the standard ATMs than create a new one for drive-ups.

It's actually for ADA compliance as mandated by federal law.

Regardless it's probably cheaper and easier not to have different key molds anyway.

why is it called taking a s**t when youre pooping?. Shouldnt it be laving a s**t?

I made it up. You should have left it alone :)

It is called softball because it is played by women and the US government was trying to control women and keep them in the home thus making their sports seem weak. They knew the rise of the women wasn't too far off and it scared them because then they would have to start paying women .70 on the dollar for what the pay men. Gasp!

Shouldn't we call them a 'pair of legs' instead of a 'pair of pants'?

You, dear sir, have uncovered the true paradox through which we can discover the meaning of true existence. My cap is doffed to you.
