Questions of the week

Post by Perrorist » 22 Oct 2017, 11:48

From Peter FitzSimon's column in today's SMH:

* If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous?
* Which letter is silent in the word "Scent," the S or the C?
* Do twins ever realise that one of them is unplanned?
* Why is the letter W, in English, called double U? Shouldn't it be called double V?
* Maybe oxygen is slowly killing you and it just takes 75-100 years to fully work?
* The word "swims" upside-down is still "swims". Are there any other five letter words like that?
* How is it, that if you rip a hole in a net, there are actually fewer holes in it than there were before?
