  1. If Congress got involved the the keypad, they may come change both the phone and calculator keypads to a common format …. a totally different one! Then the can have gridlock on coming up with one.

    Oh … the blue toilet bowl stuff … which changing green!

  2. Let’s see, there are a few I could answer. “Steamroller?” Tradition – the same reason we have this wacky “QWERTY” keyboard. That’s left over from the days of totally manual typewriters.
    I believe “head over heels” either got transposed from “heels over head” or was shortened from “heels over head, head over heels” suggesting the prototypical somersault.
    The “hard place” was actually a whirlpool big enough to eat ships, the rock moved to crush them. Look up “Scylla and Charibdis” – it’s one of those wacky Greek tales of gods and demigods and other results from a bad acid trip.
    Oh, and where do people in Hell tell people to go? For a short trip, they can go to Climax, just up the road from Hell. For a long trip, they can go to Intercourse, PA. Both suggest they can have carnal knowledge of themselves! 😀
