Where erasers, pen lids and paper clips go.
Why it didn’t occur to Microsoft that those of us who are capable of writing a letter would find their paper clip assistant offering help very patronizing. And they should have realised some of us are capable of writing without outside help!
Why Microsoft ever bothered bringing out Vista. All I’ve ever seen of it is its uncanny ability to slow a computer down. I refused to get a replacement laptop until Windows 7 was out and up and running okay!
Why the kid’s TV show, Mr Benn, isn’t exposed for the dodgy nonsense it is. A special shop turns up and only Mr Benn can see it? I don’t think so. Any new shop turns up round my way and if it involves books, stationery, clothes, music, wild horses wouldn’t keep me out. Also how come there are no other customers other than Mr Benn? My brother-in-law’s shop wouldn’t survive with only one customer. Also Mr Benn never seems to pay for the adventure he experiences when he goes behind some curtains and dresses up (the shopkeeper doesn’t mind this, isn’t that odd!). My brother-in-law knows a few words that he reserves for people who won’t pay up! Is the shopkeeper targeting Mr Benn? If so, why? Does a bit of Mr Benn’s soul vanish every time he puts a new costume on and has an adventure? Is that why the series finished suddenly? Mr Benn just vanished into the ether? Where did that shop and its keeper come from? What was so special about Mr Benn that he was the target? During the 1970s when this show came out I had it rammed down my throat via parents and the educational films (Charlie and his very talkative cat) that you don’t talk to strangers. Mr Benn, it appears, dresses up at a stranger’s behest!!!! But then the 1970s weren’t a great time for consistency.
Why The Borrowers don’t admit to being the ones that always make the socks and pens go missing.
How the Professor in Bagpuss got to be so wooden! Also his knowledge is amazing for a bird carved out of timber.
Where the Soup Dragon in The Clangers got the soup from. (Legend always had it the moon was made out of cheese, not soup).
Why Penelope Pitstop never thought to call in the police to investigate who was trying to bump her off. I would have!
