Nothing in particular - A to Z Blog Challge

When I was a kid I used to watch the show Nature on PBS, and I always thought it was funny at the end when they'd tell you "Nature has been made possible by - insert sponsor name - ." Well that was nice of them, to make nature possible. How omnipotent.

Nails on a chalk board never bothered me as a kid, and I always boggled about the fact that it could bring some folks to their knees the way it does. I am no longer unbothered by it. I don't know when it happened, but somewhere between fourth grade and now, I've grown to hate the sound.

Whenever we get food somewhere that you can help yourself to the utensils and condiments, I always forget to grab napkins, and I always end up needing them. It's even worse now that I have kids, but still, I always forget.

I have given NASCAR a fair shot several times over the course of my life, and I just can't get into. "Here they come! They're turning left! There they go! They're turning left! Here they come! They're turning left! There they go! They're turning left!" Sometimes there's a crash, and that can be interesting, but sometimes people get injuries or serious bodily death, and that's no fun.

Nolnoc is Conlon backwards.

Nine multiplied by any single digit number other than 0 or 1  will give you a two digit number, and the two digits of that number, when added together will give you 9.

Nine of out ten experts agree, the tenth guy's an idiot.

Neckties have got to be the most pointless part of a man's (or a womans) wardrobe. Don't get me wrong, I LIKE them, and I USED to wear them all the time. I have tons of them, but my boss at my current job told me not to wear them, cause if I wore them, then he'd have to wear them. Or fire me. But seriously, it's just a piece of cloth hanging from your neck. It serves no purpose whatsoever. It's not functional, it's not comfortable... It just hangs there...

Navy blue doesn't make sense to me, they don't wear blue. And Naval operations have nothing to do with belly-button surgeries.

Have you ever had a nose whistle that just wont go away? I think I must have oddly shaped nostrils, cause practically every day, I will go through a short period of time where every time I breath out through my nose, it goes "TWEEEEeeeeeeee!" Believe me when I say, no nose knows nose notes like mine.

"Nature's Blood" is what I like to call water.

Nonsense can sometimes explain a lot, ironically.

Nothing else comes to mind, so here's a bunch of N tongue twisters I just stole off of the internet. Try saying them quickly a few times.
  • Nick knits Nixon's knickers.
  • Nine nice night nymphs.
  • Nine nimble noblemen nibbled nuts
  • Norse myths.
  • A noisy noise annoys an oyster.
  • Nat the bat swat at Matt the gnat.
  • National Sheepshire Sheep Association
  • Near an ear, a nearer ear, a nearly eerie ear.
  • Never trouble about trouble until trouble troubles you!
  • Nine nice night nurses nursing nicely.
  • No need to light a night light on a light night like tonight.
  • Nothing is worth thousands of deaths.
