Overview

Have you ever wondered..., "WHY?" "Think about it." "WHY?" are things the way they are? For instance: "WHY? do we dream?..., "WHY?" does having sex feel so good?...,"WHY?' does a slow driver seem to always be in front of you on the road when you are in a hurry?..., "WHY?" are policemen obsessed with doughnut shops?..., "WHY?" do Black people love to eat fried chicken and watermelon?..., and "WHY?" do only White people see UFO's?I'm certain the aforementioned "perplexing" enigmas have tantalized your mind on numerous occasions, and just think..., those previous bizarre "WHY?" issues are just the tip of the iceberg!
