We get ON Trains, Planes and Buses but we get IN Cars.

It's probably got something to do with the fact that we walk onto the first three, but we climb into and sit down in the fourth.

Yes I guess it has to do with size of the thing we are getting on or in.

You'd climb in to a small plane like a Cessna or climb in to a Helicopter.

But then again, we walk IN to Elevators and don't get ON them.

It may have something to do with, if the thing we get ON or IN, is a lateral or forward/ backward Moving thing.

When you're standing in the middle of the city, which way is "uptown" and which way is "downtown", and why?

You get INTO bed to go to sleep, but ONTO the bed for nookie. Is that anything to do with a forward/backward, lateral moving thing? And does it change if you're in a condominium?

In my case, the question is has my dad installed some secret sensor in my house that tells him when I'm in the bath or john so he can call me?


John? That your brother or something?

I thought either way it was just "go to bed."

And what is this fascination with condominiums?

Has anyone seen my keys?

Why is a cor anglais named in French, but a French horn named in English?

How does Mr Spock know when he's got a nosebleed?

What kind of a crazy, halfwit-ridden, messed-up excuse for a joke of an apology for society do we live in when someone as utterly meaningless as the pig-thick Jade out of NonEntity Big Brother has a spokeswoman?

don't know if this happens to any of you but...

why is there ONE stoplight on a route you use regularly that no matter what time of day or night you ALWAYS seem to get when it's red??? Like it sees you coming....


...And why is that same light always GREEN when you're STOPPED at the light across the intersection from it?

Why do light-colored cars only have dark dirt on them, while dark-colored cars have light dirt?

In the USA, you pay a check with a bill. In England, we pay a bill with a cheque.

How can you get such an easy thing so wrong?

but how does a czeck pay a bill?
does he use a friend like here's my czeck?

That's an easy one: he notices green spots on the front of his uniform shirt.

If a fly is hovering inside a stationary bus-why doesn't it hit the back of the bus when said bus suddenly pulls away?

When you are driving and you are using your cruise control, where do you put your right (accelerator) foot?

The whole point is to be able to enjoy sex a high speed; as such, disposition of the feet is of no concern.

Why does 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), set 33 years into the future, look more futuristic than Star Trek (1968), set 200 years into the future?

Only one man can answer this, so does anyone have Gary Lockwood's phone number?

Yeah, and while he's at it, Lockwood can give us his opinion of Earth II.

That 2001 looks more believably futuristic than Star Trek is obviously a function of their relative budgets; that it looks far more functional and brilliantly designed than 2010 says a lot about the pedestrian abilities of noted "futurist" Syd Mead compared to the talents and tastes of Kubrick ands production designers Ernie Archer, Harry Lange and Tony Masters, and art director John Hoesli.

Sorry, but I refuse to listen to any answer to this silly rhetorical question unless it's from Gary Lockwood.

Having said that, I always thought that the whole Syd Meade thing was a bit dodgy. I could sniff the bull even when I was a kid. "Futurist"? Pah! Any 13 year old schoolboy with a pencil and paper could and did "design the future" during his lunch-break!

It's eerie and ironic how 2001 still hasn't really dated... except in one area. Women's fashions. Frank's mom in particular. Frank, lounging within his pristine, futuristic surroundings, appears to be watching an early 60s sit-com couple on the TV. Kinda throws you.
