    What are those random, whimsical thoughts floating around in your head? Hopefully we can keep this light and rhetorical; things have gotten pretty heavy around TBOT lately! OK, I'll go first:


    What if Walt Disney's last name was Butkus?

    I wonder if birds know how cool it is to be able to fly...

    Why aren't we in hovercraft yet?

    It would be really messed up if plants felt pain!

    Hovercraft? **** that, flying cars. To be fair, flying cars is a stupid idea. Think how hard to already is to regulate and monitor air traffic. Now imagine if every single person had basically a plane instead of a car..... Yep.... the idea of sky highways in Back to the future II wasn't stupid after all. That would be the only way to manage this. Anyone caught flying their car outside of those highways would be fined and arrested. And then imagine drunk flying... i mean its dangerous enough to drive a car on solid ground...now imagine people flying cars while drunk.... now they can crash in ANYTHING ANYWHERE. Also, imagine trying to arrest someone in a flying vehicle...how do you stop them? Shoot them down is the only way....

    So in short, flying cars = stupid impractical idea that will neever happen.

    Which means, i guess, yeah, hovercar is the more practical idea. No need to change tires would be nice. It's slippery out there? Pfft, who cares.... my car doesnt touch the ground mutha****as

    What if birds flew in hovercraft?
    How can you punch someone in the nose without a teeny tiny fist?
    What do goldfish think about?
    How come whenever someone says "I just want to ask you a quick question" it is usually a long drawn out series of questions?
    Why does the elevator always stop at all floors when I am in a hurry?
    Why am I in such a hurry? If somone delays me more than thirty seconds on the road my hand is moving towards the horn.
    Why do other drivers in New York honk at each other before the light turns green?
    Why do we have moquitos?

    Concert tickets are a racket!
    Tickmeister sells out in less than 60 seconds, and then all the tickets show up on resale sights for 2x, 3x, 5x the price... :mad:

    I think I should write off the time I spend on TB as an entertainment expense.

    How do you pull yourself up by your bootstraps? Doesn't that defy the law of gravity?

    Yep. That's why I tend to avoid shows at big venues. Plus I find the smaller venues are more enjoyable because I always have a good seat/spot to stand in.
