I am going to answer 17.... (All the world's a stage)

In Shakesperian times it was common to involve the audience in the performance.. Many shows featured "A play within a play" in which the actors would actually come down off the stage and sit in with the audience.. I have a mental block just now on the name of the "inner play" in Hamlet. Google suggests it is: Murder of Gonzago, I thought it was something else, Oh well,

In this scene Hamlet and the King and Queen and several other parts come off the stage and sit with the audience.

So to the question "If all the world's a stage, where does the audience sit" On the stage, of course.

When a person is dyslexic, insomniac and agnostic, he lies awake at night wondering if there really is a dog.

Isn't an oxymoron someone who has gone crazy by not breathing properly?

People that don't know the first thing about cooking; designing a kitchen, especially an RV kitchen.

How about the "new" vehicle idea of putting an electric motor (Fuel Pump) in a gas tank and using the gasoline as a coolant for it?? Electric motors throw some sparks and get hot so lets use flammable liquid to COOL them?!?!? Sure, the technology works, but it just strikes me as WRONG!!! Let alone ALL the FUN of dropping the tank to change it!!!

Gasoline as a liquid isn't flammable, it's the fumes as the liquid evaporates that's the problem.

If a car stops at a filling station and
a train stops at a train station.
What happens at a work station?

Is it paranoia of they really are out to get you?
