Why do many grocery stores have mirrors on the ceiling of their meat cases?

I have a few theories, but no concrete answer since I've never bothered to ask before. Anyone?

Maybe since mirrors are clean and its easy to spot mildews and such...I am sure it has something to do with cleanliness.

Yeah, I kinda assumed that... but I'm not sure who they benefit? The employees? They seem rather pointless... If you look at them they're kinda confusing since they're always tilted, which makes the labels on the meat (that is difficult to see) confusing to read since the words and letters are backwards and upside-down. Sigh. So, all I can think of is that they help the employees make sure the meat hasn't turned rancid?

Another odd question I'd like an answer to is: Why do public toilet seats in America almost always seem to have the gap in the front? I swear it serves no purpose. Just the idea of it irks me.

No, that thought crossed my mind too, but think about it a little more and I think you'll realize that doesn't make much sense.

Oh Wikipedia... only you would have an answer to my public toilet seat question: "They are usually made with a gap in the front-center, which reduces the amount of spatter and eases the job of cleaning for janitorial staff."

I still don't get it. I think the only answer is that they're just there to help ensure my disdain for public restrooms.

why does a question have an answer?

It is because the purpose of a question is to be answered and the purpose of an answer is to respond to the question.

Why when you bruise your fingernail/toenail... A new one grows and your old one falls off?

Why can you "hear" your voice when you are thinking/reading? You can play with that "voice" in your head and make it sound like another too... How do we "hear" something that is actually... nothing...? What is occurring then? Blah. Do I make sense?

and

When I have my contacts out the world transforms into a lovely fuzzy, fuzzy place... anyway, when I form a loose fist and look through the small openings left on either side everything clears in my vision and I can read relatively small type or a clock from across a room (drinking glasses are also very useful for clearing up the world...). What is happening with my eye to make my vision clear when I look through my loose fist?

RE Acer2110: Why when you bruise your fingernail/toenail... A new one grows and your old one falls off? Well, we typically cut them to make them shorter, or wear them down through tasks, or a file, etc. I once had my index slammed in a car door. The whole nail came off. Its not pretty under there, looks like brains or a bunch of worms basically. But a new one came out just fine!

"Oh Wikipedia... only you would have an answer to my public toilet seat question: "They are usually made with a gap in the front-center, which reduces the amount of spatter and eases the job of cleaning for janitorial staff."" Men generally like this style, I assure you.

RE 1917: Well, what is occurring is thoughts. But, even though there is no noticeable sound happening, when one internalizes words they often still move their llarynx, tongue, and so on ever so slightly. Not a great answer, but you get the idea.

for the second one, something to do with light. Where are you mauz?

Feel free to give me a great answer, because thanks to asking this question during Linguistics today I get to write my next paper on it. Joy.
