Semi-premeditated Randomness

Why are ducks always portrayed as yellow? Only hatchlings are yellow, and that stage doesn't last very long.

The Pythagorean theorem tells us that we can find the length of one side of a triangle by adding the squares of the other two sides. But how is it that A+B /= C but A^2+B^2 = C^2. I know it works but that just doesn't make sense to me.

I have been doing push-ups on some bars I bought at wallyworld for $8. I always go till my nose is on the floor. Today I just tried some with my hands on the floor. My first thought after nearly smashing my nose into the floor? Wow, that floor is close!
