Why did the green program start with blue boxes?
Why is the Canadian Tire logo a triangle?
Why is men’s and boy’s clothing made to fit so much looser than girls’ and women’s?
And can someone please design a better bathing suit…
Why does no one know the name of the first person who survived going over Niagara Falls in a barrel?
On the subject of pink and blue:
“There’s one famous study showing that women treated the exact same babies differently depending on whether they were dressed in pink or blue. If the clothes were blue they assumed it was a boy, played more physical games with them and encouraged them to play with a squeaky hammer, whereas they would gently soothe the baby dressed in pink and choose a doll for them to play with.” Valid point or bollocks?
Why do we need three title options for women: Ms., Miss and Mrs. and only one for men?
Why does *he* always drive?
What are there more of: snowflakes, grains of sand or blades of grass?
Is the book always better than the novel? Examples?
How best to handle the guy in the next seat who doesn’t realize his ‘space’ is only as wide as his legs unspread… without turning it into a ‘thing’ that ruins your movie/play/flight/bus ride?

In regards to the women in religion question, did you hear this on the raido?
Oh my god, this is brilliant, Naomi. Thank you! I love Tapestry, but I didn’t hear this one. What beautiful serendipity!
It just happened to be on the day we were driving to my parents’ place for a visit, and I was riveted. I wish I could see the play!
I saw the play!! It really was as incredible as you’d expect. PS re why does HE always drive. Recommend marrying a he without a driver’s licence. It keeps you from falling into habits. It’s also good when you like to drive and are a control freak.
haha! Smart move. (Our approach is to have territories. Depending on where we’re going, we know who’s driving.)
Annie Edson Taylor sounds like a fascinating woman! I’d love to read the story Emma Donoghue wrote about her barrel plunge. I love that Annie went over the falls on her 63rd birthday, and that she took her lucky heart-shaped pillow with her. Regarding the dire need of editing of published works, don’t get me started!
She sounds wonderful, doesn’t she? I love that she moved to Bay City and ‘hoped to become a dance instructor’ but as there were no dance studios, she opened her own. What a dame! Will try to find that story.
So many good questions… I don’t even know where to begin.
If you find any answers, let me know.
By the way, I really like the way the photos from this post show up in a row on my WordPress reader – they look like hieroglyphs!
It occurs to me that I don’t know how to access my WP reader… or do I?
I do it through Jetpack site stats. If you don’t use Jetpack, there must be another way to access it. Hmm.
I’ll look into it. But… I should probably ask… what do you use it for? (signed, seriously not tekky)
Jetpack keeps track of views and visitors, protects against malicious attacks and fends off spam. You can get it as a free plugin.
I picture it as a little Jetson-esque warrior. Space helmet and sword. (:
Thank you. Learning all the time…
