I know why dictionary is a word in the dictionary!!! It's becausehow can you expect people to use so much brain power to discover such a thing!!! Or maybe it's part of our steadly dumbed down language.

I agree.  Many of those questions are specific to the English language or to our particular culture, and are quite answerable.  And they don't seem at all universal to life.  Some of em are still cute, though.  :tongue2:
