-Why is there braille (sp?) on the drive through ATMS?

The braille on Drive through ATM is so that a blind person has the same opportunity to get cash out of their account as a sighted person. It is then possible for a person who is blind to have a sighted friend drive them through, with out them having to give their sighted friend their account information.

It also promotes a  non-discriminatory environment (aka the bank would be sued to high heaven if they didn't put braille there, and a blind person/ lawyer looking for that kind of case came a cross it)

Why do women have to shave their legs and men don't?

It dosen't really explain the why so much... but the use of depilatories (waxing and such) became highly popular in  France during the 1700's among the female aristocracy. Sexuality was a very powerful (and the most easy to wield) tool for them to use to gain power. And bare legs etc. was sexy and,  incidentally, much safer and generally less painful than body piercings.

Maybe it came about with copyrights.  You have to pay money to get a copyright ('coin'), and sometimes people copyrighted phrases. 

That doesn't really answer 'who'? though.

Haha these are amusing..

I have a few more..
- What was Captian Hook's name before he had a hook for a hand?
- Why do hotdogs come in packs of 8 when hotdog rolls come in packs of 10?
- How can you hear yourself think?
- Why is it called a "building" when it is already built?
- If you died with braces on would they take them off?

If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?
Okay, I've done this twice in the Evolution thread, but since it looks like you haven't been in there yet, I'll let it slide: Man did NOT evolve from monkeys and apes; monkeys and apes and humans ALL evolved from some other, earlier species that bears some similarities to all three.
Thank you PHF, thats one more question awnsered.

Lol, I'm guessing not. It would be a bit gross trying to get braces off a dead person. But you never know.

-How do MP3 players work?
-Why is it, that when you have a routine and break it once, something bad happens as a result?

Hmm, good questions...I have one along similar lines of the second one. My brother asked me one day, actually:

-If you were going pee and all of a sudden you died, would you still be peeing after you were dead or would you stop all of a sudden?

Haha, that's cute I'm not sure what the answer is though.
But I think it's impossible to pee and sneeze at the same time so I guess you would stop *lol*

HA! I beg to differ! it's not impossible...you can sneeze so hard your muscles contract and...yeah....well, don't try that unless you're on a toilet...but sometimes, like laughing, you can make yourself have to pee by keeping the abdominal muscles contracted too tightly, too long. That's what a sneeze does.

Hm ... yeah, but then you pee your pants right after you sneezed, right?

Why do people like to sit in the front seat of the car, but the back of the bus?

maybe it's because you always know who's behind you in a car. In a bus I find it nicer to overlook the whole bus and not have anyone behind me. kinda paranoid I guess *lol*

In a car, you can mess with the radio and pick the stations if you're in the front.  In a bus, you have more privacy from the driver in the back.
