Why?

Why does our tug boat, that has a crew of 6, have a capacity to hold 40 people in our life rafts.?
I'm guessing the commission that studied the Titanic disaster in 1912 got a little heavy handed with their recommendations.

Why can't some of the newly elected House Representatives be on time for their swearing in?
Wouldn't you think that after all the campaigning and all the dirt that was hurled between candidates, that the winner would be looking forward to his or her big day, the swearing in ceremony?
I would. If it was me, I'd be sitting on the Capitol steps when they unlocked the doors in the morning.
The new Republican Rep from Pennsylvania and Representative Sessions from Texas didn't feel the sense of urgency I would have. They chose not to be present at the time of the swearing in ceremony, but fear not, they watched it on TV and raised their hands when the time came and said "I do" to whoever may have been present with them as they looked at the flat screen TV.
Well, guess what gentleman?
THAT DOESN'T COUNT.
You need to ACTUALLY be AT the ceremony.
Soon after Mr Sessions had his "make believe" swearing in ceremony, he sat in on a Rules Committee, which he was taking part in. Finally the new Republican leadership of ours realized, "Hey, these two dudes aren't really sworn in yet, so they can't continue to pretend to be Representatives of the House."
The Rules Committee hearing was halted as our new Republican Leadership figured out what to do.
Great first day boys. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy about our future.

Why can't people smoke outside on a tug, but every tug I know of has a big honkin flame throwing charcoal grill, outside?

Why am I not surprised that one of the latest state of the art methods BP is using to protect the wild life of the Gulf of Mexico from it's still oil saturated marsh lands is "Noise cannons."
It scares the birds away.
That's just great.

Why, when I'm listening to show tunes from the musical Rent on my Ipod, do I answer "Led Zepplin" when asked by a crew member what I'm listening to.
Sometimes I need my me time.
