'Carfax' and BTTF references?  Please.

The proper comment is, 'Carfax Tower?  Was his name Renfield?'

The police did not fall for any conspiracy theories.

Lucky he didn't fall from the Bodleian.

Was the driver calling "Bring out your dead!"?

I don't know why, but I love that word

It's actually spelled defenestration. It's from two Latin roots. One, "nestrare" which means "to make". The other "defendus" which means "a living". Put them together and you have "to make a living"...

He face rings a bell
In fact, I think he's a dead ringer for his brother.

All eyes see the figure of the wizard
As he climbs to the top of the world
No sound as he falls instead of rising
Time standing still then there's blood on the sand

Did he fall in love with Meg Ryan?

everytime i see this headline, i read it as "man produced dead at hospital.."

and I think, ah hell, one day that poor man woke up dead (as they say in more eloquent parts of the country)

What the window?

Don't think of it as biatching. Think of it as an opportunity to whip out a chiropodist joke. And those opportunities are few and far between. I just wish there was better chiropodist material.

Did he fall as fast as a bigger or smaller man?

Did he fall at the same rate as a cannon ball?

You have shoes from the 15th Century? Cool.
