25 Questions We Can Be Curious About (But Probably Aren’t)

This list isn’t about being the first one to raise these questions. As they probably have been raised before. But it is to ask (or in my case consider) these questions for the first time.

  1. Where are plumbers trained?
  2. What is the class structure in plumber school? (if there is such a thing)
  3. Is there a minimum pipe size for moving sewage around? (How much waste do we expect)
  4. How will we deal with clogs in underground pipes?
  5. What is the most effective way of cleaning ourselves if we don’t take comfort into account?
  6. Does feeling clean actually affect how well we clean ourselves and in what way?
  7. How does historical context affect our understanding of historical documents? (for example, I recently listened to a reading of the American Declaration of Independence and there are a lot of things said their which are applicable to modern political discourse.)
  8. Why is Happiness seen as good except when brought about as a result of drugs? Does it symbolize something commendable or is it just a double standard?
  9. What is the history of seeing happiness as something good?
  10. Is there a culture where expressing happiness is seen as improper? Why is this so?
  11. Why is math thought in school but some of the underlining logic isn’t?
  12. Why do we consume complex potentially thought-provoking media when our goal is to unwind?
  13. What are the requirements for opening up a dry cleaning place? (legal and otherwise)
  14. What does the construction line for pencils look like?
  15. How is glass mass-manufactured if it is at all?
  16. Why don’t we care?
  17. Why should we care?
  18. Is perfectionism the enemy of getting things done or am I just lazy?
  19. Why doesn’t everyone know how to take care of their car and replace their own tires?
  20. Why do I keep on asking leading questions? Why are we drawn to do so?
  21. Why can’t I find much information on training eyes? (there are many claims that certain actions affect vision in various ways but why haven’t I found anything trying to do the reverse)
  22. Why don’t we put emphasis on actions that can cause permanent detrimental physical effects later in life? More than just telling children who haven’t fully developed mentally that it will be bad for them in a nebulous future?
  23. How does cold help preserve food and other organic materials?
  24. What makes a design iconic?
  25. Why do I think this post is in any way interesting?
