Why is it printed on the treadmill "Stop exercising if short of breath"?

Isn't that the point?

Isn't it odd...

When a Pharoah died they were immortalised by taking a cast of their face -

- presumably to recognise their greatness as a leader;

When a Hollywood Star really makes it, they make a cast of their hands -

- presumably to recognise their artistic talent;

When a Racing Driver starts at a new team, they make a model of their arse....

Why is everything I enjoy either illegal, immoral of fattening?

Why is there so much month left at the end of the money?

Why can't I just have the chance to prove that money won't make me happy?

While it's true that money can't buy love, will it allow you to rent it for a while?

Why is it called the funny bone when it hurts like hell if you knock it ?

Just saw this piece of lingual genius on the BBC website - certainly made me ponder!

The Malay word bongking means 'sprawling face down with one's bottom in the air'

What is Stevie Nicks on about in the lyrics to "Edge of Seventeen"?

Really, It's a great song but it makes no sense at all.

I quote:

"Well I went searching for an answer,
up the stairs and down the hall,
And not to find an answer,
just to hear the call,
of a nightbird saying "come away"

???

I wonder why they removed Hitler, Ghandi and Jesus Christ in the final version of the "Sgt Peppers lonely hearts band" Cover?

What in the name of all that is good was Patrick McGoohan thinking of when he wrote the final episode of "The Prisoner" ?

That'll be Stevie "I like to powder my nose from the inside" Nicks. Think that explains it. Do we a need a "What the hell do they mean - song lyrics thread" although it would just be full of Coldplay songs e.g.

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh what a thing to do
'Cause you were all "Yellow"

I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all "Yellow"

I don't remeber Gwyneth Platrow having jaundice around that time but then it might have been kept quiet.


Another thought, why are "Green" Houses made of clear glass?
