Had some genius ones recently
- Since there is a speed of light and a speed of sound, is there a speed of smell?
- Are there a lot of virgins in the Virgin Islands?
- Do crematoriums give discounts to burn victims?
- What is the diameter of a square?
- Do vampires get AIDS?
- Does that screwdriver belong to Phillip?
- Where is Old Zealand?
- Why do we call something sent by car a shipment and something sent by ship a cargo?

I got asked by a student if there was a flasher in the office that she could use.
She meant a 'Flashgun' for the digital SLR.
Poor girl went away quite embarrassed after she realised.

You don't happen to have those rope/display cords that go across the top of classrooms? I believe they are called skydisplays by some so hooks for them would make sense....

Could I remove some sandwiches that had been rammed into a VCR player?
Do I know how to break into a car if they have lost their remote blipper and keys.
Could I go and change someones car battery?
Could I mend someones glasses whose lens had fallen out.
The answer was no to all of them

Was asked what it was like in blitz the other day. Goodness knows how old they think I am.

I've helped remove unwanted birds (a pigeon and an unspecified small bird) from an outlying building. I say help; i mean chase ineffectually until aformentioned bird decides to leave anyway!

Did they have defraggler installed? Download Defraggler 1.15.163 - FileHippo.com

No, we don't have it installed on our school machines....so their request did amuse us at the time

Fraggles are closely related to muppets aren't they? Must be some joke about the user concerned that could be contrived from that...

I'm still giggling at the defraggling thing... Classic
... and yes, not muppets but I think they were produced by the Jim Henson Company people
