    Hmmmmmmm? But I thought "oranges" were pretty much yellow, until they are dyed orange?!?! (They don't grow around here.)

    Anyhow, that origin of the word probably explains why there's no English word that rhymes with orange!

    Well I can answer at least this question of yours PascoDoug:

    quote:

    If an orange is orange, why isn't a lime called a green or a lemon called a yellow?



    Before the late Middle Ages there was no name for the color we call orange. (not as much interest in naming colors as the paint companies have since generated). When the Orange was imported from the middle east it was called nAranj (arabic) from which we get the word orange. Since the orange was the color for which there was no name the name of the fruit was applied to the color.

    Why does your nose run, and your feet smell?

    Why is the word abbreviation so long?

    Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

    Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called a cargo?

    Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you will believe them but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?

    How much deeper would the ocean be if sponges didn't live there?

    Why in a country of free speech, are there phone bills?

    What would happen if there were no hypothetical questions?

    Hope you had a great birthday (despite J-M's thought that it should be called something slightly different.)

    Birthday's are a wonderful way to make somebody feel special. So, I hope you felt like the day was yours.

    I came home for the weekend because yesterday was my mother's birthday; but I spent the day with her at the hospital while she got some tests. I have a great day planned for her today, I just hope she's up to going out with me.

    Jon-Marc, the day you were born was the day you discovered America.

    The day JD was born was the day he discovered Canada.

    Both discovering the New World (in the age of Columbus A.D.)

    Personally , I wonder why we celebrate it at all.
    I'm not really that excited about being another year older.

    How about I wish you a Happy Birthday in advance for next year. And 100 more beyond.

    Can someone explain something to me? By the way, I'm just being my usual facetious self and not at all serious with this silly question.

    Why do we call each year's celebration of our birth day (separation between words intentional) our birthday? We only have one birth day. When people celebrate their wedding each year, they don't say it's their wedding; they say it's their anniversary. So isn't it just the anniversary of our birth day?

    Sorry, I didn't have anything else to do and was feeling facetious.

    By the way, hope you had a great celebration of your birth day.
