some questions with no answers

What is a flux compassator?   Why do I hear that auto mechanics replace them to dupe their customers?

We all have little quirks.  Tells that tell what we are really thinking.  Do tellers have tells when they are counting money?

Why did people bite a coin?  I wonder how many chipped a tooth in doing that?

Random is going either one way or another.  But there is Random House for books.  I wonder if they pick their books to print by random or do they have a determined one of selecting what books they publish.

Pulp fiction is really based on the coarse paper used.  The paper was poor quality but they had serial stuff on them that people wanted to read.

They used to wrap fish in paper and serve in England as fish and chips.

What does misfit mean anyway?  My pants do not fit for I lost wait.  Is that a misfit?

Egress a great word not understood.  Read the egress that Barnum used to get people out of his museum.  A small con but effective.

Barnum’s American Museum was so popular that people would spend the entire day there. This cut into profits, as the museum would be too full to squeeze another person in. In classic Barnum style, old P.T. put up signs that said “This Way to the Egress.” Many customers followed the signs, not realizing that Egress was a fancy word for “Exit.” They kept on looking for this strange new attraction, the “Egress”. Many patrons followed the signs right out the door! Once they had exited the building, the door would lock behind them, and if they wanted to get back in, they had to pay another admission charge!

Modern museums make sure that the last thing you see before you exit is the gift shop.
