Do you mean why they're shaped like Battleships and stuff? Well, I have no idea.

Why, when the house is filled with good nice food, would I rather have redskins for breakfast?

I meant why are the pieces things like an Iron etc. as they seem a bit random, but I have found the answer and I will reveal all once I find it again.

I can feel the anticipation.

I always had to be the car when I played.

Well I can tell your getting all excited so hear is the answer

With the tokens serving as such an important part of the MONOPOLY game experience, it's hard to imagine the game without them. However, the first game produced in 1935 did not include tokens. Charles Darrow, who originally brought the game to Parker Brothers, recommended that players use household items like buttons and pennies to move around the board.

Parker Brothers decided to include mover-tokens in the game. The edition produced from 1935-36 included four small wax wood pieces, or pawns. In 1937 Parker Brothers, determined to preserve the game''s tradition, decided to produce die-cast metal tokens that were reminiscent of objects found in households across America. This decision marked the introduction of the flatiron, purse, lantern, car, thimble, shoe, top hat, and the rocking horse. The top hat was modeled after the chapeau of the game's Chairman of the Board, Mr. Monopoly, and the car, his 1930s roadster.

Two additional tokens, the battleship and the cannon, were also added in 1937. They were used at the time, in another Parker Brothers game called Conflict, which made it easy to add this pair to the MONOPOLY game. These 10 tokens--flatiron, purse, lantern, car, thimble, shoe, top hat, rocking horse, battleship and cannon--were used until 1942.

It then basically goes onto say about their being a shortage in metal due to the World War so they had to make them out of wood for a while.

Making an attempt ...

1. why do girls pluck their eyebrows to death then draw them in again?

I don't really know. I don't really pluck my eyebrows all that often, as you can probably tell. I do know, however, that plucking becomes a somewhat obsessive-compulsive behavior for many girls and, in hindsight, they realize the mistakes they've made ravaging said eyebrows and they try to compensate for it with brow pencil/powder. Meh.

2. why do people scratch their head when they are puzzled?

I wouldn't know. I've never seen anyone do this, unless it was in a cartoon.

3. why do americans call trousers pants?

Actually, the words "pants" is a derivation of the 17th century English word for men's undergarments called "pantaloons". The word, like many other "American" terms, was carried forth over to the States where, somewhere down the line, it was shortened to "pants".

4. why do you get affected when other people yawn?

That's all in your head. I have not found any meritable proof that suggests yawning is contagious. It's more like "monkey see, monkey do".

5. how famous do you have to be in order to be "assasinated" rather than murdered?

You don't have to be famous. By defintion, the word assassination means to murder by sudden or secret attack. Why is this term applied more to "famous" people? Probably because, more often than not, they are the ones that people secretly plot to kill.

6. when women go through "the change" what is it that they change into?

They're not changing into anything. Their bodies, namely their levels of estrogen and other hormones, are changing.


Bah, no more. My head hurts and my popcorn is ready.

Thanks to ES I have filled my quota for learning new stuff for today.

I think its time to bring out the ultimate question in:
What came first, the chicken or the egg?

Why is it ok to wear really tight clothes but not run around naked?

Ok, so if cats chase mice, and dogs chase cats, and panthers chase dogs, who do the mice chase?
