  • Why do athletes tap the bottoms of their shoes?

    I saw a volleyball player do this last year. It seemed that as a play was being set up, she would lift one foot, tap the sole of the shoe and repeat with the other foot. Yesterday I saw a male basketball player do the same thing on a highlight video. Can anyone explain why it is done?

The Tin Man morphs into "Marvin the Paranoid Android" (He's not looking for a heart, he just want to get replacements for the diodes down his left side...) Aurthur dent plays Dorothy's role (just wants to go home) Trillian is the opposite of the scarecrow. She's got a degree in Astrophysics, but can't find a job. (she was "on the dole" on Earth) Of course Zaphod also plays the part of the scarecrow. He seeks knowkledge about the true ruler of the galaxy. Does anyone see any other parallels to OZ?

    I am wondering if there is a predilection of Female fiction writers to feminize the strong, male characters in their books.

Rowling announced that she wrote her strongest grown-up male character as a gay man with a secret past. Does this suggest a tendency to deny that strong heroic men can exist? By adding a gay subtext, is she admitting to a belief that straight men are dangerous or harmful? Whether or not you agree with this concept... Do you think that there are other examples of women writers seeking to feminize their strongest male characters? If so, who are they?

    Several episodes of this cartoon feature Amy Wong "cursing" or otherwise telling someone off in Chinese (or Japanese, I suppose). I'd like to know exactly what she is saying. Both the exact words PLUS the translation to English. It may just be gibberish, but I'm betting the producers knew what they were up to and used real words.
