In the book Moby Dick Ishmael is really Jesus and the crew of the Pequod sacrifice their lives so he may live. Remember the character says, “Call me Ishmael” therefore that is not his real name. Melville writes all his characters as people in the Bible. I know it is crazy but it a reverse on the Christ on the Cross. The cross is made of wood and the coffin afloat on the sea is made of wood. If Moby Dick is evil than mankind loses their fight against evil and only Ishmael remains to save the rest of the world.
Why do detectives have an alias of gumshoe. I understand the shoe part but I never saw a detective chewing gum. A lollipop like Kojak but no gum.
What are test pilots and what happens if they fail the test. Can they be given a redo when the plane crashes?
Did anyone really read Playboy? I never saw Playgirl but what were the articles in the magazine?
I believe Andy Warhol got it right. Everyone gets their few minutes of fame. Then why are the Kardashians getting hours of attention. I just can not keep up with them unless I get a lobotomy.
If the plural of octopus is octopi what is the plural of platypus, should it be platypi and not platypuses?
How do animals get mixed up if the species should not mate. I mean can a whale female have a male dolphin as a mate. And what would be the result a whalfin? I mean they are both mammals and breathe the same way.
What about a caterpiller and a bee? Would it be a beepiller or a caterbee?
Why does not an engineer come up with reversible engines on a plane? Push a button and you go backwards.
Cemeteries should have levels and therefore you can bury six people in a stack. Obviously the oldest would be on the bottom. It would be cheaper and save on land space.
With the internet, malls will eventually cease to exist and be converted to cheap housing. Everything will be bought on line and the need to go to the mall experience will go by the wayside. I also predict that one will be able to buy cheaper gasoline on the internet with special promotions. Sears will sell you linen and twenty gallons of gasoline on a special discount.
Remember nothing can not be done. Everything is possible! That should be the logo for some company. Coming up soon cars that drive themselves, we do have the technology. Planes that need no pilots. Golf carts that need no driver. It is coming folks.
