Day of reckoning.

Big freakin alarm clock

A 24-hour time line of questions you wish you could ask out loud…

Ever thought about how many questions you ask yourself in a typical day? “Who came up with the word ‘shampoo’?” “How do you get deodorant stains off your t-shirt?” “Do blonds still have more fun?”

Well, I decided to keep track of these pearls of wisdom I wish I had for a full 24 hours (sans the hours I’m asleep – duh). And voila! A day in the life… presented via query time line

6:45 am Who invented the alarm clock? (And whyyyy?)
7:05 am Where did the term “crapper” really come from?
7:30 am Where can you buy organic shampoo at a reasonable price?
8:30 am How many people, on average, ride the NY subway system every day?
8:40 am When is it ever acceptable to pair fuschia with pink polka dots?
9:15 am How many calories are there in a medium latte?
10:00 am How do you setup auto-archive in Entourage on a Mac?
11:15 am What are some early warning signs of carpal tunnel syndrome?
12:30 pm What’s healthier: cous-cous or brown rice?
1:30 pm Do they make treadmills you can put a laptop on?
1:45 pm How are some coffees instant and others not (instant)?
2:00 pm Can people tell when you give them limited access to your Facebook profile?
2:30 pm Why does your hip feel sore after sitting for a few hours?
2:35 pm How much is too much coffee in one day?
5:30 pm What did people do before cell phones?
6:00 pm Do they sell Long Island Railroad passes for multiple rides?
6:20 pm Why do more men fall asleep on the train than women?
7:30 pm How long does an average oven take to pre-heat?
7:45 pm How long is milk good after the sell by date?
8:45 pm When will the show “How I Met Your Mother” stop showing re-runs?
11:15 pm Is it better to let your computer hibernate or shut it off every night?

…So what’s your time line like?

  1. I’m impressed that they can all be published like that. I unfortunately sit in meetings and wonder things like “When will so-and-so stop talking?” or “Can I go home now?” … There are others that *are* worthy of posting, but I find that so many more just aren’t. … And, actually, now that I think about it, I wonder if everyone sees that difference. :) I have seen questions hit the site a lot, that *should* have remained in someone’s subconscious.

  2. Fun post. Sadly, the three questions that I clicked on all had exactly 0 answers. I wonder how to channel some of this question-asking energy towards providing answers.


  3. Keep checking! I was surprised to see just how many of them were answered in the last day or so.

    Man, have we got multifaceted readers!
