    I had a few on my mind and figured I should just start a new thread (can't find the old one)

    Why is a keyboard made the way it is on a computer?...I mean is there a scientific reason that is goes asdfghjkl as opposed to alphabetical order? just seemsillogical to me.

    Does anyone else think they are getting texts/calls when they aren't...while leaving their phone on vibrate?

    because its based on the QWERTY settings from back in the 1800s. i guess it just became a global tradition

    Pretty sure Google could've answered these for you but....

    I believe the QWERTY keyboard came into existence to slow people down when typing. They were typing so fast on the alphabetical joints that they were breakingthem. At least that's how it was explained to me.

    As for the last question...I experienced this as well when I deployed to the middle east. My cell phone was over 4000 miles away but I could hear it ringingand or receiving texts. I would check my pocket and remember that I didn't have it. I think our minds play tricks on us word to Scarface.

    Why are American cars considered to be such garbage? And will I regret it if I get a Dodge Charger?

    The QWERTY key board was design the way it is because during the time of type writers, people would type so fast that the punch-keys would tangleand lock up with each other. Someone designed the QWERTY keyboard to reduce the amount of times the keys would bump into each other so that people could typefast without having to stop.

    Do Jewish people like to be called Jews?
    Do Jewish people buy German products such as BMW, Mercedes, and Puma?

    Yes as a Jewish person, it is fine to call me Jewish as long as its not in disgust much like everyone else (i.e - EW YOUR BLUE?!) AND yes Jews purchase Germanthings...I do know there are some who hold grudges and will never buy them, but many do purchase German manufactured things.

    So why not improve the keys? Why make it MORE difficult to type?
