  1. The last one IS a good one! The glow-in-the-dark stuff DOES stop glowing with the lights on – the stuff absorbs photons in the presence of light, and loses those photons when it goes dark (higher and lower energy levels – I won’t bore you with the physics! 😉 ).
    I have always loved homonyms – my favourite has always been the threesome of “the mine in the mine is mine”. (The anti-personnel explosive in the tunnel belongs to me.) Hence the second hand, which counts seconds, coming in at 3rd place. (Unless you think digital, in which case the seconds go first, then the minutes, then the hours, so the big hand is second, the little hand is third, and the skinny hand is first! 😀 )

    • A friend of mine used to say, if things weren’t the way they are they would be some other way which would be the way things are now. I think that might be the answer!!!

  2. Watermelon smashing comedian,Gallagher, observed that adding ing to a word makes it a verb in action; running, walking, jumping. So why is it called a building. It’s already done, it should be called a built.
