Have you ever wondered how some of the behaviors, habits, traditions, and phrasology we silly little humans have come to practice and utilize ever came into existence?

It was one of the reasons why I always like George Carlin. He was always coming up with those "intriguing" types of questions after visiting his Toledo Window Box.

For instance....

Who was the first person to ever give somebody the middle finger?

What kind of situation were they involved in where the only reaction they could come up with was pointing their middle finger at them? Why the middle one? And I wonder what that person on the receiving end thought?

Got any more?
