Question

On djandy’s site, she asks the question, if Wonder Woman’s plane is invisible and she was naked would we be able to see her. I told her that you could probably see the cockpit. But the question that bothers me is where did moths hang out before the electric light was invented?

And if Dunkin' Donuts is open 24 hours a day, why is there a lock on the door?

Age oldd questions that boggle the mind....

The thought of her nekkid though...not so pretty. Wouldn't her bum be all squished and such??

Before the light globe was invented, did a candle appear above your head when you had a great idea?

Great question. Hummmm?!?

Definitely things to ponder.

I think moths were not around until lightbulbs were invented.

Klee brings up a good point. I guess the door locks in case they get robbed and the crooks want hostages.

Someone sent me an e-mail today with "unanswered questions". Some of them are really clever.

Where there was fire.... I bet they had a short life expectancy.

(AROUND THE MOON OF COURSE!)

They immolated themselves in campfires and candles (I had candles with lots of dead moths in the wax!)

I'm not interested in seeing Wonder Woman naked. Maybe the invisible plane would act like Harry Potter's invisibility cloak and everything would be invisible (I hope so!)

Mary, No Polar COordinates, IMAGIK.

Closets. They hung out in closets eating wool.

OK - I did a post a loooooong time ago about that whole Wonder Woman's plane thing and why it bugs me. And I shall share my thoughts here with you:

Her plane is invisible not see-through. Right? It's there in the name. Invisible. So if the plane is invisible, wouldn't anything inside the plane also be invisible? Because it's still solid matter - it's just been made invisible. Right? Yeah. So...you wouldn't be able to see her at all. Which is why this bugs me that in the cartoon, there she is sitting in her plane.

And yes...I am a nerd. Thank you...

coffeypot said...

Ahhh, but a lovely nerd. So, I guess if she is invisivle I wouldn't get to see the cockpit, huh?

Itchy said...

Right. But you can continue to say the word cockpit all day and I will continue to act as if I'm mature and not giggling like an idiot in my head over the use of the word cock.

But yes. Anything in the invisible plane would be invisible. You wouldn't see the cockpit (not giggling) nor the naked Wonder Woman.

coffeypot said...

Damn! Not giggling, either.

Hi coffeypot, just stopping in from Pugsplace to say hello. Finally got to read some of your blog. I was cracking up at your "More than you ever wanted to know" list. On a sidenote, I'm taking a Hillary Clinton poll on my site and welcome all viewpoints.
