If England had not eventually found Australia, would the Dutch ever have come back to claim the land? I can't believe all these explorers were out exploring for new land, hartog found the wa coast and just went "nup. No way. We'll put this one in the too hard basket". And sailed away.
What will happen when the sun dies? It's already halfway through its life expectancy. Are scientists working on a contingency plan yet?
Do humans or human- like creatures exist on an earth type plant in another solar system? How could we be the only populated planet? Surely that's impossible? If they do exist, are they like us or completely different?
Why do people invest in "baby- modified" products of already existing things when it's virtually the same ie baby bullet. Surely people realise babies grow up?
A reincarnation real? If so, do we get to choose if we want to come back? Do we get to choose who we be? Why would anyone not choose a well off happy person? Do babies choose their parents, as some say they do? (Eg a psychic told me dd chose us as her parents because she knew she would be cared for after having a very rough and sad previous life). Why would anyone choose crap parents?!

@Nomsie you just made my brain explode...
I would love to know how much toddlers remember. Like do they wake up remembering the eleventy times they made mummy get out of bed the night before and resolve to be extra cute today to make up for it?

Nomsie I love your post. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I actually realised what death means - and thought so long and hard about never ever ever again being here - like never - it is such a strange thing to think about - I guess that's why I like to believe in reincarnation - I don't want this to be it for ever and ever ...

It never occurred to me that we'd be p!ssing the other customers off There are 10 or more self serve stations and 2 opened manned registers with people already lined up with full loads and my DD is crying and running amok by this stage, so it's self serve all the way! DD "helps" me with the bags etc, it's just easier I think.

My Woolies will usually only have two checkouts open max, even when busy. They actively push people to the self-serve, even with a full trolley. I waited 20+ minutes in line this evening for all the trolley people to scan their own crap. And you can't just quickly scan and then put in the bag and scan again, you have to wait for the item weight to register in the bag. It's painful. Why do they bitter employing check out people? Make the whole front of the store self serve if that's how you want to play it!!

Who invented loom bands? Did they just sit down in boredom one day and started making jewellery out of tiny rubber bands and decide they could sell them? And how were they around for years with no one ever mentioning them and then BAM! International explosion.
Actually how do any fads become a fad? I mean there's thousands of toys on the market but some things explode in popularity and then are gone as quickly as they came. Why is that?
Turns out google could answer one of my random thoughts
Rainbow Loom was created by Cheong Choon Ng, a Malaysian immigrant of Chinese descent who came to the United States in 1991 to attend Wichita State University, where he earned a graduate degree in mechanical engineering. He was employed as a crash-test engineer for Nissan Motor Company in 2010 when he conceived the idea of a toy loom for rubber-band crafting while watching his young daughters make rubber-band jewelry. His prototype, which he called Twistz Bandz, used a wooden board, pushpins, and dental hooks. Encouraged by his family to market the product commercially, he invested $10,000 and found a factory in China to manufacture the parts, which he and his wife assembled in their home in June 2011. Ng renamed his product after discovering an elastic hair band on the market named Twist Band. His brother and niece came up with the name Rainbow Loom.
Efforts to sell the loom online and in toy stores were unsuccessful, however, because customers did not understand how to use the product. Ng started a website and filmed instructional videos featuring his daughters and niece. In summer 2012, Ng received his first store orders from franchises of Learning Express Toys, a specialty crafts chain, and sales picked up. In June 2013 arts and crafts retail chain Michaels test-marketed the product in 32 stores; by August the chain was carrying Rainbow Loom in its 1,100 U.S. locations. Rainbow Loom is also sold at Mastermind in Canada and in specialty stores. As of August 2013, 600 retailers were selling Rainbow Loom at a retail price of $15 to $17. The kits are manufactured in China, and Ng supervises distribution out of a 7,500 square feet (700 m2) warehouse near his home. In April 2014 a travel-sized Rainbow Loom was released called Monster Tail.

My random thought is why do people go to the Movies and for that two hours or so have to eat/snack and drink their way through it.
Another who has wanted to try the Nivea in shower moisturiser and will now try it thanks to Miss Marigold.
